Status of the Internet in Canada and the importance of Canadian IXP’s
Chief Technology Officer, CIRA/.CA
A quick overview of the Canadian Internet exchange landscape from coast to coast to coast. Canada has its share of challenges and opportunities in building and growing the IXP infrastructure near the Canadian border, and also to support the need of the rural communities.
As an expert in developing innovative, leading-edge IT solutions, Jacques has established CIRA as a global leader among ccTLD registries. He has 25+ years of experience in the private and not-for-profit sectors and as CIRA’s CTO,is currently leading CIRA Labs, CIRA’s innovation hub and providing leadership and direction for the management and security of the .CA registry and its underlying DNS.
A visionary in the Internet community, Jacques led the development of CIRA’s Internet Performance Test, is an outspoken advocate for the adoption of IPv6 and represents the .CA registry internationally as a member of a variety of working groups and advisory groups, including being a member of ICANN’s Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC), TLDOPS standing committees and TechDay and DNSSEC Planning Program Committee.
Jacques is committed to the development of a new Canadian Internet architecture. He has served as the catalyst for the creation of a national Canadian IXP association, CA-IX, and is a member of the Manitoba Internet Exchange’s (MBIX) and the DNS-OARC Board of Directors.
Jacques holds an Electronics Engineering Technologist diploma from Algonquin College in Ottawa, is ITIL v3 Foundation certified and is a certified Agile ScrumMaster.

Antennas for Autonomous Vehicles:
What You Need to Know!
and reliable positioning recently became a critical property of autonomous
vehicles like drones, driverless cars and more. Tallysman Wireless will explain
why the GNSS antenna is the most important component for accurate positioning
and will present the challenges of selecting the appropriate GNSS antenna for
diverse types of autonomous vehicles. Multiple properties of a GNSS antenna
like its phase center variation, ability to reject interferences or multipath
and sensibility to its environment will be analysed and guide lines will be

Hautcoeur received the M.Sc. degree in radio communication systems and
electronics from the Ecole Polytechnique of the University of Nantes, Nantes,
France, in 2007 and the Ph.D. degree in signal processing and
telecommunications from the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of
Rennes 1, Rennes, France, in 2011. In 2011, he was involved in postdoctoral
training at the University of Quebec in Outaouais (UQO), Gatineau, QC, Canada.
His research field was optically transparent antenna systems for telecommunications.
Since 2014 he works at Tallysman Wireless in Ottawa, Canada and specialized in
the design of high performance GNSS antennas and associated electronics.
Over 250 million people in the world are blind or visually impaired. But 75% of visual impairment can be treated or entirely prevented if detected early, monitored effectively, and treated promptly. Various retinal imaging instruments have been developed to assist the screening, diagnosing and monitoring of vision critical eye diseases. These instruments range from traditional ophthalmoscope to digital fundus camera; from ocular tomography (OCT) to laser scanning ophthalmoscope. In this presentation the speaker will attempt to explain the principle of retinal imaging; give an overview on the advances in retinal imaging; and discuss the opportunities for innovation in vision care and retinal imaging.
Dr Kexing Liu is the president and CEO of OcuXcel Corporation, a technology company based in Kanata, Ontario, dedicated to providing advanced technology solutions and developing new products from a global tech workforce for ophthalmology and vision health. Kexing received his Ph.D. degree from University of Manchester (UMIST), UK. One of his first professional and technology contribution was in pioneering the integration and qualification of GPS navigation technology into the on-board flight management systems for civil aviation as a project leader at CMC Electronique, Montreal. Later he joined a start-up called Cambrian Systems Corporation, Kanata, He was one of the the principal architects for the world’s first metro DWDM system product – OPTera (OM5K) at Cambrian. The company was later acquired by Nortel Networks. The OM5K as an extremely profitable line of product has generated over US$3 billion revenue for Nortel (now Ciena) since the acquisition. Later on, Kexing had an opportunity to serve as the principal of Mira Connections, a consulting business helping medical device companies on systems engineering and management issues. Most recently Kexing has architected multispectral digital ophthalmoscope for retinal health screening. Kexing has published more than 30 scientific papers on fiber optics and photonics. He is inventor/co-inventor for 17 granted patents ranging from photonics, optical communications systems, control systems engineering, and ophthalmology instruments. Kexing is a senior member of IEEE and is currently serving as the chair of an IEEE Canada committee responsible for outreach.
