Optical Wireless Communication Conference

This edition of the Optical Wireless Communication Conference focusses on the role optical wireless communication can play to address some of the key challenges of 6G. 6G will have to serve many mobile users and IoT devices at a density of terabits per second per square meter. Current RF systems provide continuously improving performance but at rapidly increasing cost, complexity and power consumption. Yet, very high bit rates in large amounts of available spectrum can be realized by steerable or switched light beams, which also allow dense reuse. As cell sizes have been shrinking exponentially in the past decades to serve an ever-increasing amount of client devices, atto-cells covered by an optical beam coming from the ceiling are a natural next step.

RISE-6G Training Workshop

RISE-6G is contributing to various technical solutions around the Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RIS) technology, which is intended for radio wave propagation control, aiming to design intelligent, sustainable, and dynamically programmable wireless environments that go well beyond 5G capabilities.

RISE-6G is organising a half day Workshop on the RIS technology on 12 December,  8:30-12:30 CEST.

In this Workshop, RISE-6G will present the RIS Technology, RISE-6G’s impact, and main technical results. A panel discussion will close the workshop.

IOT Solutions World Congress

At IOTSWC 2024, you’ll have access to the latest insights and practices from thought leaders across the industry, as well as exclusive previews of technologies and innovations.

Visions for Future Communications Summit

The Summit will cover multiple research lines, roughly structured along Physical Layer, Network and Control Plane, and Applications and Services. Each research line will have a keynote speaker, and a set of sessions. All sessions will be organized as panels of distinguished speakers from academia, industry and High-level European Commission officials presenting their viewpoints on a subarea within each track. Panels will be oriented to encourage interaction among the panelists and between the panelists and the audience.

Rui Campos (INESC TEC) will present a SUPERIOT-related presentation (co-authored with Hélder Martins Fontes and Luis Pessoa) entitled:

Synergy of Integrated Sensing and Communications (ISAC) with Network Digital Twins for Beyond-6G Research”.

LAMC 2023

The IEEE MTT-S Administrative Committee approved an initiative to create the IEEE MTT-S Latin America Microwave Conference (LAMC), to be held in the second week of December, every two years, starting in 2016. LAMC has a general scope on RF and microwave engineering and technologies and aims to achieve a high level of technical quality.

Yasser Mohammadi Qaragoez (KU Leuven) will give a SUPERIOT related paper on “Time Division Duplexing for Enhanced Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer via Backscattering”.

innoLAE 2024

Large-Area Electronics (LAE) is a new way of making electronics, including printed, flexible, hybrid, plastic, organic and bio-electronics. It is enabled by new materials that can be processed at low-temperatures, permits the use of new manufacturing processes such as printing and digital fabrication and enables products with new form factors, new cost structures and the potential for customisation.

innoLAE 2024 will present a programme combining plenary addresses from internationally-renowned speakers, two parallel tracks of oral presentations, a poster session with the latest research results and an exhibition with leading companies and organisations showcasing the latest products and developments. Prizes will be awarded to the most promising scientific and technical developments presented in oral presentation and poster. The conference features extensive networking opportunities.

SUPERIOT researchers from NOVA will make several contributions to this conference.

Pedro Moreira has a presentation (Day 2 Session 11) on “Inkjet printing of non-critical raw materials for thin film transistor application”

In addition, there are two posters on “Manganese Oxide – Enhanced Laser-Induced Graphene on Paper for Micro-Supercapacitor Applications” (Rodrigo A.) and “ZnO and ZTO solution-based nanostructures for UV sensing applications” (David Carvalho).

2024 MRS Spring Meeting

The 2024 MRS Spring Meeting provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.

Joao Coelho (NOVA) has an invited lecture on flexible laser induced graphene supercapacitors.
