IEEE Concordia Arduino Tutorial

Room: H 655.2.3, Bldg: Hall Building, 1550 De Maisonneuve West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3G 2E9

You are one step away from controlling the world through programming! IEEE Concordia is back with their Arduino Tutorial this semester. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of programming the Arduino, how to use its various features and how to connect your own circuits to the Arduino. Through this handy little microcontroller, you’ll be able to automate tasks and unlock a whole new world of DIY projects to bring your ideas to life! We will provide all the tools you need to start playing around with the Arduino—except a laptop. Note that you must return all materials at the end of the workshop. If you want to continue using the Arduino after the workshop, you can come visit the lab or ask us about where to buy the components (also check out the resources for a list of stores). NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. You must bring your own laptop (and have admin permissions). Library laptops will not work. Please download the Arduino software and install it before coming to the workshop. Date: Friday February 3rd, 2023 Time: 6:30PM to 8:30PM Location: H 655-02-03 Tickets: $10 a ticket from VTOOLS Room: H 655.2.3, Bldg: Hall Building, 1550 De Maisonneuve West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3G 2E9

Vancouver TALK 13: Rural Electrification Association


Speaker: Glen Fox Registration is optional, but we want to know who to expect. 10:00 AM P.S.T. You can log in at 9:45 AM (12:45 PM Montreal) to check connection and say hello.All IEEE members are welcome, especially those Life Members that don't have a local Affinity Group. There was no speaker for last month, busy with Christmas. We are looking for speakers for the rest of the year, contact Carl Zanon if interested. Speaker(s): Glen Fox, Agenda: In the 1940s, the Alberta government asked the Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) to bring power to rural Alberta. The IOUs declined, citing cost as a factor. With this reality, Alberta farmers decided to step up and formed co-operatives, also known as Rural Electrification Associations (REAs), to bring electricity to rural Alberta. Virtual:

Photonics for AI and AI for Photonics

Hotel Bonaventure Montreal, 900 Rue De La Gauchetière O, Montréal, Quebec, Canada, H5A 1E4

The North American Workshop on Silicon Photonics for High-Performance Computing (SPHPC) will bring together experts in Silicon Photonics and in High-Performance Computing (HPC architects and experts, interconnect architects, HPC systems modeling, etc.) to discuss the state-of-the-art with Silicon Photonics based HPC interconnects and computing platforms (e.g., AI accelerators), and the main challenges that must be addressed to accelerate their development. It will consist of invited talks of the highest caliber from academia, industry, and government agencies as well as from different related disciplines. For SPHPC’23, we will focus on a special theme on Photonics for AI and AI for Photonics. In addition, SPHPC will host a student presentation session to invite students working in this area to present their projects at the workshop and receive feedback on their work. This is the event for meeting professionals in the field as well as exchanging and exploring new ideas. About SPHPC - Silicon photonics has emerged as a promising solution to realize high-performance computing (HPC) systems required in the Big Data era. Having various applications in the domains of HPC, data centers, sensors and bio-sensing, aerospace, artificial intelligence (AI), etc., it has attracted researchers from academia and industries in different fields to explore various benefits and challenges of this technology. As an emerging area, it demands multidisciplinary collaborations and contributions, from material science and engineering, for realizing low-loss CMOS compatible components, to novel system architectures and software CAD and design tools to explore the design space of the resulting complex devices and systems. The North American Workshop on Silicon Photonics for High-Performance Computing (SPHPC) brings together experts from academia and industry working on silicon photonics and HPC (and other applications) to discuss the latest advances, remaining challenges, and research opportunities in this field. Co-sponsored by: Silicon Photonics high-performance computing (SPHPC), 29th IEEE International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture (HPCA-29); Centre for Systems, Technologies and Applications for Radiofrequency and Communication (STARaCom); Agenda: To be announced Hotel Bonaventure Montreal, 900 Rue De La Gauchetière O, Montréal, Quebec, Canada, H5A 1E4
