Lecture Meeting - 2017

IEEE J. C. Bose Milestone Lecture

The IEEE Kolkata Section is organizing IEEE J. C. Bose Milestone Lecture on Wednesday, 21st Aug 2019 (5.30 p.m.) at Dr. Triguna Sen Auditorium, Jadavpur University. We are honoured to have Dr. K V S Hari, Professor, Department of E.C.E., Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore as the speaker. He will deliver a lecture on Experiments with MIMO Signal Processing Systems.

You are cordially invited to attend this lecture session.

The abstract of the talk and the speakerís biography are given below:

Kindly REGISTER you name at by 19th Aug 2019.


Signal Processing systems, which use multiple inputs (signals/sequences) and process them using transformations to generate multiple outputs, are called Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output(MIMO) systems. MIMO systems describe several phenomena in several fields of engineering. MIMO Signal processing deals with the design of theoretical models, algorithms and implementation architectures for such systems. In this talk, we present several examples of MIMO systems and then consider a few applications in wireless communication and indoor localization. In particular, wireless channel modelling experiments for cellular systems and drone-to-ground links will be presented. The idea of using the spatial dimension to encode bits, called spatial modulation, to increase the bits per channel use has potential use for IoT systems. Novel variants of spatial modulation techniques will be presented. Determining the location of a first-responder team in a harsh disaster scenario without using GPS or WiFi is a challenge. This provides an opportunity to design solutions using inertial measurement units using accelerometers and gyroscopes. We present the design of such a solution tested by Swedish firefighters. The impact of work carried out by members of the lab will be highlighted in the context of understanding new algorithms, contribution to industry standards and development of working prototypes.

Two-day workshop on "Soft-Skill Development"
Date 15th -16th July, 2011
Venue Alumni Seminar Hall, Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur (BESUS), West Bengal, India
Organized by IEEE Calcutta Section & Human Resources Managament Department - BESUS with the support from IEEE R10 EAC 2011
Workshop Instructor Mr. S.V.Raman, Former Program Director, Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata
In the inaugural program the welcome address was given by Prof. Manas K Sanyal, Professor and Head, Department of HRM and Dean - Faculty of Social and Management Sciences, BESUS. The speaker Mr. S.V.Raman was introduced by Prof. Sivaji Chakravorti, Chair, IEEE Calcutta Section.The workshop was structured in several sessions spanned for the two days. The sessions conducted have been summarized below:
Day 1: Sessions Day 2: Sessions
Preliminary Session & Introduction Team work, goal setting, leadership
Communication Skills & Body Language Preparation for interview skills, group discussion, CV-writing
Etiquettes, Time Management Mock group discussion and mock interviews
The final session was handled separately for queries and clarifications from the attendees and evaluation of the mock sessions finally was appreciated by all. The Valedictory Session was chaired by Prof. Ajoy K Ray, Vice-Chancellor, BESUS. More than 100 attendees in the workshop gave their feedback for organizing for such programs in the near future.
