Software Essentials for the Firmware Engineer

Mar 10 2014 - 9:00am

March 10–13, 2014
Case Western Reserve University
Glennan, Room 421

Many developers of Firmware have migrated to this field without formal training of Software Engineering. 

This seminar addresses that void. The course material is tailored for developers of Embedded Software and is based on five of the IEEE’s Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK)areas, namely Requirements, Design, Construction, Testing,and Quality. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the methodology required to build high Quality software in an embedded environment. Throughout the seminar, attendees will participate in discussions applying the material just presented to an embedded problem. A unique feature of this seminar is a 3-hour hands-on lab that allows the attendees to utilize their newly gained knowledge in an embedded exercise.

Recruitment of Applicants for Doctor of Engineering degree at CSU

Recruitment of Applicants for Doctor of Engineering degree in

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

Washkewicz College of Engineering

Cleveland State University (CSU)

Cleveland, OH 44115, USA

The ECE department at CSU has recently received multiple grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), to the tune of $2.5 Million. We are actively seeking high quality applicants to our doctoral program; a number of the students admitted in Fall 2014 will be supported to work on these recently awarded projects. The details of the projects can be found at Qualified candidates who are interested in working on the projects in other areas such as computational intelligence, control systems, power systems, communications, and computer network (other than the NSF granted projects) in ECE department are also encouraged to apply for the doctoral program at the Washkewicz College of Engineering. Please check ECE’s website to find professors’ research areas.  A doctoral student’s stipend is commensurate with his/her qualifications and experience (usually in the range of $16,000 - $20,000 per year).

Minimum requirements for doctoral candidates/applicants:

The applicant should hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree with at least one degree in engineering.  In exceptional cases, applicants may be considered without an engineering degree if they have a strong foundation in calculus, physics, and chemistry or biology, before entering the program.  Minimum grade-point averages of 3.00 for bachelor’s and 3.25 for master’s level are required.

The GRE General section is required of all applicants.  Minimum scores at the 80th percentile on the Quantitative section and 3.5 on the Analytical Writing section are usually required depending on the specialization area.

International students are required to pass an English Language Proficiency Examination, which is administered by the University Testing Center.

The application deadline for the fall semester of 2014 is March 15, 2014

IEEE EnergyTech 2014 & AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition

Jul 28 2013 - 9:00am

EnergyTech 2014 follows the successful launch of EnergyTech 2011, significant growth of EnergyTech2012, and the great success of EnergyTech 2013. This conference surveys promising technologies in power and energy to address the growing demand for sustainable energy. This new conference brings together experts in diverse areas to review and explore technologies that promise significant contributions towards addressing this global challenge.

Topics will include: smart grid, energy storage, wind power, plug-in electric vehicles, co-generation, distributed generation, efficiency and conservation, power electronics, photovoltaics, solar-thermal energy, and other alternative and renewable means of power generation. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed and the conference proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore. Both research and application papers are invited, with an emphasis on how the technology described can help address the global concern.
Attendees for whom this conference is intended include: power and energy researchers and practitioners; engineers entering energy research, desiring an overview of the current technological challenges in power and energy; research directors and investors seeking clarity of the most promising energy technologies; and planners and representatives desiring background on energy alternatives impacting public policy.
Paper and abstract submission will be electronic, with IEEE Xplore PDF-compliant formatting. Details of electronic submission can be found at In addition, to help expidite review, please send an electronic copy to
Abstracts are due by January 14th and 
Papers will be due by February 14th 
Notification of acceptanceby the week of March 19, 2013 
Final papers due: April 30, 2013

Please note that the paper deadline is for being able to publish in IEEE Xplore PDF-compliant formatting.
