Presented by IEEE MTT-S Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) Talks:
Transceiver Architectures for Beyond-5G: Challenges and R&D Opportunities, co-organized with SSC-S
Dr. Payam Heydari
University of California, Irvine
Date: Thursday, May 14 , 2020
Time: 12:00 PM – 1 PM
The ongoing super-linear growth of world’s population coupled with the worldwide access to internet and the general public’s tendency to use more bandwidth-intensive applications fuel the urgency to enhance wireless infrastructures so as to meet these demands. Consequently, the wireless R&D is headed towards the inception of “Beyond-5G” (e.g., 6G) technology. This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of challenges and opportunities in designing beyond-5G transceiver architectures capable of achieving high data rates above and beyond 20 Gbps.
Payam Heydari received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California in 2001. He is currently a Full Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Heydari’s research covers the design of terahertz/millimeter-wave/RF and analog integrated circuits. He is the (co)-author of two books, one book chapter, and more than 150 journal and conference papers.
Dr. Heydari is an AdCom member of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. Dr. Heydari currently serves an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits and the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Letters. He was a member of the Technical Program Committee of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). Dr. Heydari is an IEEE Fellow for contributions to silicon-based millimeter-wave integrated circuits and systems.

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!

Accelerating 5G Design Innovation Through Simulation
Dr. Laila Salman
Date: Wednesday, June 10, 2020
Time: 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
5G connectivity is the next technological revolution. This pervasive, ultrafast compute network will connect billions of devices with data on-demand. It will drive economic expansion in many sectors, spawn new products and services, and transform our lives as we know it. Yet, before 5G can deliver on its promises and quality of service (QoS) metrics, wireless systems designers and engineers must overcome sizable challenges.
Ansys 5G simulation solutions empower these individuals to solve the complexities impeding device, network and data center design. Ansys 5G simulation solutions provide electromagnetics, semiconductor, electronics cooling and mechanical analysis tools to accurately simulate 5G radio and related technologies. The multi-solution platform leverages high-performance computing that can be deployed across the enterprise, allowing designers and engineering experts to collaborate more effectively.
This seminar will highlight the following 5G engineering challenges:
· End User Equipment
o multi-frequency band antenna integration
o modeling of mm-wave array antennas
o RFI, EMI & Desense Mitigation
· Base-Station Antenna Modeling
o Full Communication Analysis in Electrically Large & Complex Environment
o RFI, Data Coverage & ElectroThermal Reliability
Dr. Laila Salman received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronics and communication engineering from Cairo University, Egypt, and the PhD. Degree in electromagnetic and antenna design from the University of Mississippi. She also worked as a post-doctoral student at the Université de Quebec en Outaouais, Gatineau, Canada till 2010. Her research was on dielectric resonator antennas, wearable antennas, microwave and millimeter-wave circuits and systems, microwave imaging for early detection of breast cancer and scattering from left-handed metamaterials. Dr. Salman joined Ansys Canada Ltd. in August 2010 as a Lead Technical Services Specialist for High Frequency Applications.

Abstract – With the focus on environmental sustainability and energy security, power system planners are looking at renewable energy as supplements and alternatives. But such generation sources have their own challenges – primarily intermittency. It is expected that the smart grid – due to its inherent communication, sensing and control capabilities – will have the ability to manage the load, storage and generation assets (including renewables) in the power grid to enable a large-scale integration of distributed generation. In a smart grid, information about the state of the grid and its components can be exchanged quickly over long distances and complex networks. It will therefore be possible to have the integration of sustainable energy sources, such as wind, solar, off-shore electricity, etc. for smoother system operation. But in order for this to be possible, the electric utility will have to evolve, and change their ways of operation to become an intelligent provider of these services. This lecture introduces the operational characteristics of renewable energy sources, and various aspects of the smart grid – technology, standards and regulations. It also addresses the interplay among distributed generation, storage and conventional generation to provide an efficient operational strategy in the context of the smart grid.
ADMISSION: Free, but the registration in advance is required.
Abstract – A smart city relies on widely distributed smart devices to monitor the urban environment in real-time, collects information for intelligent decision making, and facilitates various services to improve the quality of urban living. The distributed network of intelligent sensor nodes, as well as data centers/clouds where sensor data are stored and shared, constitutes a smart city infrastructure. Smart cities address urban challenges such as pollution, energy efficiency, security, parking, traffic, transportation, and others by utilizing advanced technologies in data gathering and communications interconnectivity via the Internet. It provides real time and remote monitoring for different aspects of data management in areas such as transportation, communication, video surveillance, and sensors distributed throughout the city. Simultaneously, the Smart City building blocks like education, telemedicine, health care, IT applications, pollution management, etc. can be deployed in the IEEE Smart Village initiative to have a greater impact on the rural population throughout the world. through reliable electricity and internet connectivity.
