IEEE PCJS SPS: "Computational Imaging with Few Photons, Electrons, or Ions"

IEEE PCJS Signal Processing Society Special Event: Guest Speaker Dr. Vivek Goyal from Boston University "Computational Imaging with Few Photons, Electrons, or Ions" Abstract: LIDAR systems use single-photon detectors to enable long-range reflectivity and depth imaging. By exploiting an inhomogeneous Poisson process observation model and the typical structure of natural scenes, first-photon imaging demonstrates the possibility of accurate LIDAR with only 1 detected photon per pixel, where half of the detections are due to (uninformative) ambient light. I will explain the simple ideas behind first-photon imaging. Then I will touch upon related subsequent works that mitigate the limitations of detector arrays, withstand 25-times more ambient light, allow for unknown ambient light levels, and capture multiple depths per pixel. The philosophy of modeling at the level of individual particles is also at the root of current work in focused ion beam microscopy.

IEEE Workshop on Network Automation

1 Ericsson Dr

IEEE Workshop on Network Automation NOT a free meeting. Pre-registration and payment of applicable fee REQUIRED, here: https://meetings.vtools.ieee.org/meeting_registration/register/186920 Workshop fee: General public (non-IEEE members): $199 IEEE Members: $69 Graduate Student IEEE Members: $19 Student IEEE Members: $19 Students, non-IEEE members (student ID required) $59 Registered attendees of this day-long workshop are eligible for IEEE Continuing Education Credits (CEUs), an extra charge $5 for the Certificate is requested Network Disaggregation and Network Softwarization is radically changing the way Networks are Designed, Deployed, Managed and Operated. The goal of End-to-End Network Automation is to help Service Providers achieve their desired target of “Zero Touch Provisioning” across the entire Network, spanning physical and virtual domains, and covering the Transport and Data Center Networks. The increased maturity in SDN and NFV technologies and adoption of Open Source and DevOps principles is contributing towards an Open End-to-End Network Automation framework. Intent-based Networking is driving the need for higher level of Network abstraction, while Network Slicing – especially in the context of 5G - is requiring automation to be supported at the granular level of Slices. Finally, Service Providers are leveraging Artificial Intelligence to improve Network efficiency, lower their operating costs, and improve both the quality of service and customer experience. Underpinning these trends and advances, the IEEE Workshop on Network Automation is bringing together leading experts from telecom service provider, cable service provider, mobile service provider, software service provider, open source network automation projects and industry consortiums as well as leading researchers from academia to discuss the latest technical innovations, opportunities and challenges in Network Automation. The following industries, open source projects, industry consortiums and academia are scheduled to present: * AT&T, Comcast, Verizon * Ericsson, Nokia, Fujitsu, Ciena, Juniper Networks, Cisco, NIKSUN, Lumina Networks * ONAP, ONOS, ODL, ETSI IFA, MEF, IAB-IETF, P4 * Cornell University, University of Washington in St. Louis, University of Texas in Austin This single-day workshop is being co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Princeton Central Jersey Section. This will provide a unique forum for Architects, Developers, Testers, and Business Leaders as well as students and researchers from academia to be informed about the evolving landscape of Network Automation technologies, deployment use cases and business models and an opportunity to network and share their learnings and experiences. Following speakers are confirmed: * Nate Foster (Cornell University, Barefoot Networks) * Marina Thottan (VP, Nokia Bell Labs) * Robert Howald (VP, Comcast) * Sunil Maloo (AVP, AT&T) * Raj Jain (Professor, University of Washington, St. Louis) * Gustavo de Veciana (Professor, University of Texas, Austin) * Richard Dunsmore (Director, Fujitsu Network Communications) * Walter Willinger (CTO, NIKSUN) * Steven Wright (Chair VNF Project, ONAP) * Jeff Tantsura (IAB, CTO Apstra) * Balaji Subramaniam (Director, Ciena) * Raquel Morera (Fellow, Verizon) * Stuart Mackie (Director, Juniper Networks) * Brian Freeman (Fellow, AT&T) * Mehmet Toy (Fellow, Verizon) * Shaleen Saxena (Principal, Lumina Networks) Note: ComSoc members attend this summit for free!
