Publicerad: 2018-05-22

Welcome to the ELLIIT Distinguished Lecture on ?What We Have Learned About Using Software Engineering Practices in Research Software? by Prof. Jeffrey Carver on June 4, 13:15.

Title: What We Have Learned About Using Software Engineering Practices in Research Software

Speaker: Prof. Jeffrey Carver, University of Alabama, USA

Location: E:2116, E-huset, LTH, Lund University

Date and time: June 4, 2018, 13:15-14:00

Abstract: The increase in the importance of Research Software (i.e. software developed to support research) motivates the need to identify and understand which software engineering (SE) practices are appropriate. Because of the uniqueness of the research software domain, existing SE tools and techniques developed for the business/IT community are often not efficient or effective. Appropriate SE solutions must account for the salient characteristics of the research software development environment. To identify these solutions, members of the SE community must interact with members of the research software community. This presentation will discuss the findings from a series of case studies of research software projects, an ongoing workshop series, and the results of interactions between my research group and research software projects.

Swedish Microwave Days

Publicerad: 2018-02-12

The Swedish Microwave Days presents for the 4th time, the GigaHertz Symposium and AntennEMB Symposium into a major joint two-day microwave event, this time in Lund! With joint exhibitions, plenary sessions, invited speakers, and social events the Swedish Microwave Days will be the perfect meeting point for everyone who is interested to learn about recent advances in microwave, millimeter-wave, THz, or antenna technology or to hear about the recent advances in wireless communications, sensor, and emerging applications!?

GigaHertz Symposium

GigaHertz Symposium is a biennial conference in the field of GigaHertz technology. This will be the 14th GigaHertz Symposium after its start in Linköping 1992. The scope is broad, ranging from devices to systems, and from single GHz frequencies up to several THz. The conference is a meeting place for researchers in the field from industry, academia, and research institutes. The format of the conference is a mix of invited talks and regular submitted papers. A number of leading researchers have been invited to give presentations of different hot topics in GigaHertz and TeraHertz technology.

The emphasis of GigaHertz is on new high-speed devices and circuits and their implementation in wireless communication, sensors and fiber optic communication systems. We also welcome submissions in emerging nanodevices, wireless and optical communication and antenna integration. 

AntennEMB Symposium

AntennEMB, is the radio science conference on Antennas and Computational Electromagnetics organized by SNRV (Svenska Nationalkommittén för Radiovetenskap, the Swedish URSI Committee). The AntennEMB has been organized on a regular basis for more than a decade and the last conference was held in Linköping 2016 as part of the Swedish Microwave Days. The format of the conference combines invited key-note talks with original contributions from the conference participants in the form of oral presentations and interactive poster sessions.

The aim is to bring together people from industry, academia and other research oriented organizations with an interest in antennas and computational electromagnetics. The scope of the conference includes the development of computational methods, optimization algorithms and programming techniques, and all types of antenna technology, applications, theory and measurement techniques.

IVA-seminarium: LTH öppnar dörrarna för industrin

Publicerad: 2018-04-09

Lunds Tekniska Högskola öppnar sina laboratorier för att fler företag ska ha råd att utveckla nya produkter. Företag som bygger och testar prototyper välkomnas nu till sju laboratorier på LTH. Satsningen förutspås gynna forskningen ? men också Öresundsregionen i stort. 

På LTH finns utrustning och lab i världsklass. Nu lanseras konceptet LTH Open Door för att dessa ska kunna komma fler till nytta. Både startups och etablerade bolag är välkomna. Förhoppningen att denna "dörröppnare" ska kunna bidra till en förenklad innovationsprocess och nya samarbeten.

I nuläget ingår sju lab i projektet: 3D-printlaboratoriet, biomedicintekniklaboratoriet, elektroniklaboratoriet, laserlaboratoriet, nanolaboratoriet, VR-laboratoriet och brandforskningslaboratoriet.

På seminariet så kommer Charlotta Johnsson, vicerektor för Samverkan och Innovation på LTH, att ge en kort introduktion. Därefter så kommer representanter för de olika labben att presentera sin verksamhet. Seminariet avslutas med studiebesök på biomedicinteknik- och elektroniklaboratorierna.

Välkommen till ett seminarium och studiebesök tillsammans med IVA Syd. Seminariet börjar kl 17.00 men varmt välkommen från kl 16.30 då vi serverar kaffe. Observera att antalet platser är begränsat.

IEEE Distinguished Lecture on Device-to-Device Communications by Prof. Geoffrey Li

Publicerad: 2018-03-08

IEEE Distinguished Lecture on Device-to-Device Communications by Prof. Geoffrey Li, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

Speaker: Prof. Geoffrey Li, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Title: Device-to-Device Communications in Cellular Networks

Time: Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 15:15

Location: Room E:1406, ground floor, E-building, John Erikssons väg 4, Lund University, Lund


To satisfy the increasing demand of high data-rate services, provide better user experience, and alleviate the huge infrastructure investment of operators, device-to-device (D2D) communications have being considered as one of the key techniques in the 5G wireless networks. With D2D communications, proximity users in a cellular network can communicate directly to each other without going through the base station (BS). It can potentially increase spectral-efficiency (SE) and device energy-efficiency (EE) of communications. However, D2D communications may generate interference to the existing cellular network if not designed properly. Therefore, interference management is one of the most challenging and important issues in D2D communications. This talk will focus on interference management in D2D communications including quality-of-service (QoS) aware admission control and SE/EE based mode selection. Cross-layer optimization and concave-convex procedures (CCCP) are exploited to solve the related optimization problems.

Guest seminar by Thomas Eibert: Near-Field Measurements of Antennas

Publicerad: 2018-02-27

Speaker: Thomas Eibert, Chair of High-Frequency Engineering, Technical University of Munich

Title: Near-Field Measurements of Antennas

Time and place: 1/3 at 15.15-16 in E:2311

Abstract: After introducing and motivating the need for near-field antenna measurements, the presentation will focus on the capabilities of modern and flexible near-field far-field transformations techniques. Based on simulation and true measurement results, diagnostic and echo suppression capabilities will be discussed. Also, it will be demonstrated that irregular measurement sample locations as well as arbitrary measurement probes with arbitrary orientation do not cause any difficulty for such transformation techniques. The flexibility and the performance of the field transformation techniques will give the chance to realize powerful and flexible near-field measurement techniques based on freely moving measurement probes or even with measurement probes flying on UAVs
