Congratulations to GTPG member Erik Centeno! He was awarded the 2020 ECE Opportunity Research Scholars (ORS) Outstanding Service Award for the academic year. Erik has been a tireless member of ORS for four years, serving on our very own Space Solar Power team. He has graduated this spring from Georgia Tech and will be joining AT&T in Atlanta. Well done, Erik!
Congratulations to Fanpeng Kong, who successfully defended his PhD dissertation on Monday, 10 March 2020. The work, entitled “Development and Evaluation of An Intraoral Tongue Operated Assistive Technology for People with Quadriparesis,” generated a new way to bring mobility to quadriplegic people and a prolific number of technical publications. Sorry folks, but Fanpeng already has a job accepted in the San Diego area.
Due to widespread COVID-19-related travel restrictions and disruptions, RFID Journal LIVE! 2020 and IEEE RFID 2020 have rescheduled the conference and industry gathering for September 9-11, 2020, at the same venue (Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL). Registration deadlines and other submission deadlines will be modified accordingly — keep an eye on the website as updates are posted!
Click on the picture to enlarge the 2019 word clouds. This is an annual tradition on the website (see 2017 and 2018). We post a visual summary of the weighted keywords of all publications throughout the year (conference and journal papers). The word cloud is formed by concatenating all of the PDFs of conference and journal papers. The super-PDF is then run through wordclouds.com. A fun way to visualize a year of research activity!
