Organized by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (IEEE SSCS), Heydari gave seminars on “Millimeter-wave and Terahertz Integrated Circuits in Silicon Technologies: Challenges and Solutions” to three Engineering Schools of Lehigh, Columbia, and Princeton Universities. Below is the short abstract of the seminar:
Prof. Payam Heydari has received a Cyber-physical Systems Synergy award from the National Science Foundation for his collaborative research titled “A Signal-Aware-Based Low-Power, Fully Human Implantable Brain-Computer Interface System to Restore Walking after Spinal Cord Injury.” This ground-breaking research focuses on implanting a cyber-physical system to bypass the spinal cord, enabling direct brain control of prostheses. The project combines efforts of CECS/EECS, BME and Neurology Dept. in collaboration with Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center.
On August 24, 2014, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia, featured Prof. Fadi Kurdahi in their Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series. Prof. Kurdahi’s lecture, “Revisiting the Perfect Chip Paradigm: Cross-Layer Approaches to Designing Reliable Systems using Unreliable Components”, focused on error-awareness across multiple abstraction layers – application, architectural platform, and technology – for next generation SoCs. http://cemse.kaust.edu.sa/events/Pages/CEMSE%20-Seminar-Fadi%20Kurdahi.aspx
