On behalf of the conference organizing committee,
we invite you to the virtual Photonics North Conference on May 26-28,
2020. In the midst of a global crisis,
we look forward to meeting with all of you, our colleagues, as we carry on with
the work of advancing optical science and engineering. Join us for outstanding
plenary talks from inspirational thought leaders. Join us for the very best
work from respected and established researchers. Join us for talks from
emerging researchers, presenting what is surely the opening work of brilliant,
Photonics and optics are finally seeing widespread adoption and significant growth into new markets. Photonic devices are being applied to sensing, communications, and even quantum computing. High speed fiber optics and highly integrated subsystems are essential to the rollout of 5G systems. There has never been a better time for research, development, and training in photonics and Photonics North is essential for developing and promoting the ecosystem.

In this time of social distancing, we are pleased to announce that all the team members of IEEE YP and WIE Ottawa Sections are fully committed to providing online interaction and support to our community! In partnership with Professional Engineers Ontario, we present an online talk in “Clarifying the Path to Becoming a Professional Engineer.”
If you are an engineering undergraduate or post-graduate student, or a recent graduate starting out your engineering career, then this seminar might be for you. In it you will learn:
- What is PEO?
- What engineering experience is PEO looking for once I graduate?
- I have international engineering education and experience; how is that evaluated by PEO?
- How is my engineering experience evaluated by PEO?
- How do I prepare my Experience Record?
- What is the PPE?
- What is the EIT Program and the Student Membership Program?
The emphasis of this webinar will be on the P. Eng. licensure process – what PEO is looking for. The webinar will focus on how engineering experience is evaluated and how you can facilitate the process. Learn the dos and don’ts of preparing your licensing application for evaluation.
To participate, you will require: internet connection to view the webinar, phone access to dial into the conference for audio.
We look forward to speaking with you!
This seminar discusses the use of AI in modern power and energy systems, in particular electrical distribution networks.
About this Event
Driven by global environmental emission issues and tighter
requirements for system resilience and reliability, electricity
production is shifting from a centralized paradigm to a decentralized
one. In this context, renewable energy sources (RES) and electric
vehicles (EVs) have proliferated over the past decade, exhibiting a
steadily increasing trend. Thus, today, a large number of wind turbines,
photovoltaic (PV) panels, and EVs are connected to medium- (1-69 kV)
and low-voltage (=1 kV) grids, with traditional integrated bulk power
systems becoming decentralized in the presence of active distribution
networks, where the flow of power is bidirectional between generators
and “prosumers”. Such systems are typified by a high penetration of
metering infrastructures, generating a large volume of data, providing
the opportunity to harness the power of big data using data-driven
This seminar discusses the use of artificial
intelligence (AI) in modern power and energy systems, in particular
electrical distribution networks. Real-world examples of the use of AI
for energy storage systems optimization and control will be provided and
- What are modern power systems control and optimization issues?
- How data-driven techniques can help?
- What is the state-of-the-art?
- What is the path forward?
Admission is FREE! Everyone is welcome! Registration is required!
Mostafa Farrokhabadi is the Senior Director of Technology at
BluWave-ai. Concurrently, he serves as Associate Editor of IEEE
Transactions on Smart Grid. He has more than 8 years of experience in
designing mission critical grid solutions for industry and academia,
including technical leadership of a $6M international consortium in
electric grid modernization, and smart grids projects with Hatch and
Canadian Solar. Mostafa has (co)authored several articles in high-impact
journals, conference proceedings, and magazines, and holds patents on
intelligent control and optimization of renewable-penetrated grids.
Mostafa has also led the award-winning IEEE Power and Energy Society
Task Force on microgrid stability, an international coalition of 21
researchers from 14 institutions investigating stability issues in
microgrids. Mostafa obtained his PhD in Electrical and Computer
Engineering from the University of Waterloo. He has also studied and
performed research in Sweden at KTH and Germany at KIT. During the
course of his career, Mostafa has received multiple business, research,
and teaching awards, including the prestigious University of Waterloo
Doctoral Thesis Completion Award and Ottawa’s Forty Under 40.
