The Electrical and Computer Engineering in Medicince research group won awards for two of their projects at this year's Annual Meeting of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA). STA Excellence in Technology Award - 1st Prize: A. Umedaly, N. West, K. vanHeusden, M. Görges, C.L. Petersen, G.A. Dumont, J.M. Ansermino, R.N. Merchant, "Robust Closed-Loop Control of Anesthesia in Adults Undergoing Elective Surgery"
ECE’s Sarah Walinga was awarded $2000 from IEEE Power and Energy Society for her achievements in the power engineering field. She was presented the award by department head Dr. Andre Ivanov, and Dr. Marti also came up to personally congratulate her.
The Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology in Kyoto, Japan went to ECE's Eddie Hung, Al-Shahna Jamal and Prof. Wilton for their paper titled, "Maximum Flow Algorithms for Maximum Observability During FPGA Debug".
Neurio is a sensor made by Energy Aware that tracks the use of power by appliances in the home. The company raised nearly $267,373 through Kickstarter to help bring the sensor to market. This terrific invention originated as Janice Cheam's team project in New Venture Design, a course that brings business students together with engineering students. Now Janice runs the company bringing this idea to market.
Babak Assadsangabi, Xing Chen, Dan Brox and Prof. Kenichi Takahata received the Best Student Paper Award at IEEE SENSORS Conference for their submission titled, Microfabrication of Capacitive Pressure Sensors Using Ferrofluid Sacrificial Layer.
Today it takes an average of $5 billion and 10-15 years to develop a drug. One of the primary reasons for the high cost and time spent is the poor predictive accuracy of the front end drug discovery process. Conventional drug development and testing methods rely on the use of 2D cell cultures and animal models. 2D cell cultures are grown on flat, hard surfaces that prevent cells from interacting with their environment in a natural way. 3D cultures are grown in a flexible, protein environment that more closely mimics conditions within the body.
Watch the performances from this year's Music Night. It has been a tradition at ECE to have a music night each year so that students and faculty members can get some time off from research and enjoy their colleagues' music performances. In 2013 all of APSC was invited to participate. The goal of the event each year is to enjoy each other’s music and experience different genres of music and of course music of different nations. This event was organized by ECE and BMEGA.
New research finds a way to opportunistically use television and radio channels to transmit cellular signals when systems are pushed beyond capacity. When a natural disaster strikes and too many people take to their mobile phones at once, cellular networks easily overload. But a University of British Columbia graduate student has developed a solution to ensure that calls don’t get dropped and texts make it to their destination.
Yazan Boshmaf and his LERSSE research colleagues received a Best Paper Award at the IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining for their paper, Graph-based Sybil detection in social and information systems. Defending against sybil attack is essential for today's online sytstems. In this paper, Yazan and his co-authors present an analytical framework to evaluate graphic-based sybil Detection algorithms, a common method to defend against Sybil attack. Sybil Attacks
