What Every – “Body” Is Saying
Thursday, 18 June 2020 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET
by Elsa Velasco Paul; Founder, The M&E Group

People make the decision whether they like you or not within the first 5 seconds of seeing you. Our body language can be screaming an inaccurate representation of yourself and your intent. How would you like to learn what your current body language is saying and modify it for a better message? A very hands on, practical session.

Unconventional Computer Arithmetic for Emerging Applications and Technologies
Thursday, 9 July 2020 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET
by Leonel Sousa; Professor and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Lisbon, Portugal

Arithmetic plays a major role in computing performance and efficiency. It is challenging to build platforms, ranging from embedded devices to high performance computers, supported on traditional binary arithmetic and silicon-based technologies that meet the requirements of today’s applications. In this talk, the state-of-the-art of non-conventional computer arithmetic is presented, considering alternative computing models and emerging technologies. It provides comprehensive overview of logarithmic and residue number systems, hyperdimensional and stochastic computing, as well as arithmetic for DNA-based computing. And focuses nanotechnologies and applications in emergent domains, such as deep learning and post-quantum cryptography.

Smart and Circular Cities: Status, Trends and Opportunities
Tuesday, 23 June 2020 • 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET
by Dimitrios Serpanos; Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Patras

The worldwide population growth coupled with its attraction to cities leads to the development and growth of mega-cities around the world. Their sustainability in the context of the international economic growth and the changing physical environment and climate requires new approaches to operation, policy and governance, which account for new economic models, management methods and technologies. The need of smart and circular cities leads to the development of new technologies, their integration and management coupled with effective policies and governance to achieve goals of effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.
