the Summer PhD School of Information Engineering (SSIE) will take place in Brixen, Italy, at the University of Padova’s premises, from the 23rd to the 27th of July 2018. The school was first organized in 1991 by Prof. Silvano Pupolin, who has been its Director until 2016. The initial aim was for it to be a meeting point for Italian PhD students.
The friendly environment of Brixen, along with the excellent UNIPD facilities and the high quality lectures, soon increased the school’s popularity amongst Italian institutions and internationally. Every year, we make our best to offer a rich, competent and exciting training program. SSIE 2018 is technically sponsored by the IEEE Sensors Council, Italy
This edition of SSIE is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Silvano Pupolin , an esteemed colleague and a friend. Silvano founded this summer school in 1991, and has been his Director until 2016. He passed away on February 11, 2018. He always loved organizing this school and, above all, spending time with the students, nurturing a great research community.
Initial editions offered a training program on telecommunications engineering, with lessons spanning over three days. Since then, the school has grown, attracting students from abroad, becoming a place where European projects and International collaborations could find a home for discussion, seminars, training activities and so forth.
Technically, SSIE 2018 is revolved around cyber physical systems , targeting:
I.sensing technology: lessons and seminars will be given on the design of nano biosensors, and ultra low power receivers for IoT devices
II.signal processing techniques: analysis of sequential data, deep learning for visual data
III.applied signal processing & applications: gait analysis through multiple sensors, portable devices for augmented reality , humanintheloop: sensing and actuation for autonomous driving scenarios
The teachers are leading experts in their respective fields; we are honored to have them aboard and we do thank them for their kind support. We are truly proud of this year’s program. We hope you will enjoy the school, Brixen, and take a bit of time to immerse yourself in the fresh air, exciting trails and stunning views of the surrounding alps.
