IEEE FOOTHILL SECTION
IEEE COMSOC CHAPTER
PRESENTATION ON AN IMPORTANT CURRENT WIRELESS COMSOC TOPIC
5G—TECHNOLOGIES AND STANDARDS
SPEAKER: LIANGPING MA PhD
IEEE COMSOC Distinguished Lecturer
Abstract of Presentation:
The buzz word 5G has generated a lot of excitement recently. But what is 5G? How is it different from the existing standards such as LTE and Wi-Fi? In this talk, we give an overview of 5G. We then focus on several key technologies of 5G, including waveforms, numerology, channel coding and beamforming, and explain how they may deliver the promised performance. We also briefly cover the status of 5G products and deployment.
Biography of Speaker:
Liangping Ma is with InterDigital, Inc., a mobile technology company. His current research interests include 5G radio access networks, ultra-reliable and low-latency video communication, and cognitive radios. He led the research on Quality of Experience (QoE) based optimization for video streaming and interactive video communication. Prior to 2009, he was with San Diego Research Center and Argon ST (acquired by Boeing), where he led research on cognitive radios and wireless sensor networks and served as the principal investigators of two projects supported by the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation. He is the co-inventor of more than 40 patents and the author/co-author of more than 50 journal and conference papers. He has been serving as the Chair of the San Diego Chapter of the IEEE Communication Society since 2014. He received his PhD from University of Delaware in 2004 and his B.S. degree from Wuhan University, China, in 1998.

Topic: Machine Learning
Speaker: Brad Morantz, Ph.D.,
IEEE Computer Society Phoenix Chapter
“Machine learning” is a very hot topic. But what does it mean? What is it really? How is it accomplished? How does it affect us? Did we enroll R2D2 in college? This presentation will define machine learning and explain what it means and how it is applied in both the research and the applied practitioner worlds.
This subject has been given as a one or two semester course at various schools and universities. It could be far more than this because of the basic statistics and underlying mathematics. This lecture will cover the basic principles and definitions of the various aspects of machine learning. Explanation of each current type will be discussed. Some methods and example applications will be covered. Some of the subjects that will be explained are: Data mining, various clustering methods, self organizing maps, model building, decision trees, Bayesian learning, and supervised vs. unsupervised training. These will be explained relative to the definitions given.
About the Speaker
Dr. Morantz has a B.S. in C.I.S. and E.E., a M.S. and Ph.D. in Decision Science, a mixture of mathematical science, psychology, and computer science. He has additional post doctoral course work in Computational BioScience, Computer Science, statistical design methodology, and Design Analysis Simulation Experiments (DASE). Dr. Morantz has published and presented on neural networks, multiprocessing mathematics, biologically inspired computing architecture, data-mining, and intelligent decision making. His current research is in biologically inspired computing for intelligent decision making. He is currently Sr Staff Scientist for Bluemont Technology & Research, Inc of McLean VA.

Engineering Project Symposium & Showcase
June 2, 2017
Cal Poly Pomona
3801 W. Temple Ave.
Pomona, CA 91768
Thank you for your interest in attending the 2017 College of Engineering Project Symposium and Showcase. Please register to confirm your attendance at the upcoming event on Friday, June 2, 2017.
More than 400 students will present over 120 projects and exhibits in simultaneous sessions
Time: 7:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Location: Engineering Buildings 9 & 17
The top undergraduate team projects and exhibits from each of the seven engineering departments will present their efforts to solve multidisciplinary challenges.
Time: 2:00-4:30 p.m.
Location: Cal Poly Pomona, Bronco Student Center, Ursa Major
The Engineering Project Symposium provides an opportunity for students across the college to present their projects for review by faculty, industry representatives, other students, and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing teamwork, organization, and communication – important elements in an engineering career.
Presentations showcase the results of individual and team-based efforts to solve multidisciplinary technical challenges. Between 400 and 500 undergraduate and graduate students will present dozens of projects and exhibits in approximately 20 simultaneous sessions. Faculty-mentored projects have been undertaken by students and student teams from our engineering departments: Aerospace, Chemical & Materials, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and Electromechanical Engineering Technology. Some projects are interdisciplinary, requiring participation by students across the college and the university. Many projects are sponsored and guided by industry. Projects require planning and most often use a research, prototype, test and document strategy. The pedagogical model is greatly enhanced by an opportunity to summarize a project in a public forum.
Showcase of Projects Videos
Teams of undergraduate students representing 7 academic departments present the results of their efforts to solve multi-disciplinary challenges.

IoT – an Embedded Systems Engineers perspective
IoT is the buzz word everyone like to be associated with. This talk will approach IoT from a Embedded systems designer’s point of view. We will explore the concepts of IoT with a gentle introduction and dive deep into the realm of design challenges involved in coming up with a IoT enabled product. We would try to complete a design of a simple IoT device using familiar tools in hardware, Firmware, Software and networking aspects of the design. We will try to make it as hands on as possible. This will be a very interactive session. Come prepared! Bring your laptops with your familiar tools, whatever that may be.

IEEE Foothill Section. Young Professionals Affinity Group
Throughout school we all went to numerous workshops on “how to interview,” but now that we all are out in the real world, we will eventually be on the other side of the table. What do we do there?
Come out to this event and learn from experience engineers how to conduct on interview and what to look for. These skills will help as you advance through your career, and if you know what the other side is looking for you will be able to interview better.
Also, this month is Entrepreneur month in Riverside County, so if you are looking to start your own company, you will eventually need employees. Come out and learn how to interview!
Any questions email or message your hosts!

OMICRON will conduct an all day workshop in SCE, Westminster office on “Field testing of Relaying Current Transformers IEEE C57.13.1-2006”, Cost $150
RSVP by March 22nd
|Instrument Transformer Testing Workshop
Hosted by Southern California Edison | April 5, 2017
Instrument transformers are crucial for a reliable and safe energy supply. During the lifetime of instrument transformers, a number of internal and external factors may change the operational behavior and endangers a safe and reliable mains operation. In the worst case, the instrument transformer may fail in operation or a malfunction might occur. Applying effective measurement methods to Instrument Transformers, production processes, commissioning and maintenance of ITs can be improved.
Southern California Edison will host an OMICRON workshop on April 5, 2017. The workshop will provide you with a primer on instrument transformers design and testing, including a comparison of conventional methods versus innovative test methods.
Seating is limited – Registration deadline is March 22.
Application examples will be provided, including a review of practical experiences of performing the following tests on CTs, VTs and CCVTs:
Who should attend?
Participation will include lunch, breaks, certificate of participation for continuing education credit, and course materials.
By registering for this event, you are granting OMICRON permission to use any photograph, video, or recording of you to document the event and promote this and other events. If you have questions or concerns, please contact our event coordinator.
