Motivation Implantable electronics play an essential role in the Advancement of medical devices. The introduction of the Pacemaker in 1958 ushered in the era of active implants. Since then, numerous applications have benefited from Implantable electronics, such as cochlear implants and Nerve stimulators. With the advent of integrated circuits and new Manufacturing technologies, implantable electronics have Been used in new areas outside the healthcare industry. Over the years, a wealth of knowledge has accumulated in which specialized design techniques and circuits have Been developed to meet the needs of implantable applications.   Aim This Talk offers a comprehensive overview on the topic of implantable electronics. A primary focus is on presenting the special requirements and specifications of implantable electronics that arise from their respective applications, as well as an overview of the various techniques and methods used to meet these requirements. The electronic components of several implantable devices are presented, in addition to the corresponding manufacturing processes. Discussion of the technical aspects of implantable electronics will be followed by a discussion of the various applications, including emerging trends, directions and challenges.   Speaker Biography Moustafa Nawito was born in 1979 in Cairo Egypt.

GECon 2024 announces the Workshop Session “Enhancing Learning Outcomes: Interactive Formative Assessment using Autograding via MATLAB Grader”

München Technical University of Munich, München, Germany

GECon 2024 announces the Workshop Session "Enhancing Learning Outcomes: Interactive Formative Assessment using Autograding via MATLAB Grader"   This workshop on Formative Assessment demonstrates how teaching can be enhanced and how student learning can be empowered using formative assessment in digitized academic teaching by means of MATLAB Grader cloud-based autograding platform. Formative assessment is a cutting-edge educational strategy that leverages continuous feedback and assessment to enhance the learning process. Unlike summative assessment, that provides an evaluation snapshot at the end of a course, formative assessment allows for ongoing adjustments to teaching and learning methods throughout the course based on continuous feedback and autogenerated statistics. In this workshop, participants will delve into how formative assessment fosters a deeper understanding of course content, boosts student motivation, and supports the development of essential learning competencies such as critical thinking and problem-solving. During the workshop, the participants will explore the role of MATLAB Grader as a pivotal tool in this process, providing immediate performance evaluations and tailored feedback that help educators tailor their instruction to meet the evolving needs of their students. Moreover, the workshop participants will discover how MATLAB Grader integrates seamlessly into your teaching workflow, enabling them to concentrate on crafting assignments that align with learning outcomes while students engage in self-directed work. This powerful platform enables innovative teaching approaches such as the Flipped Classroom format, Project-Based Learning (PBL), via the creation of reusable digital materials/tasks for autograding, allowing students to learn at their own pace. By attending our workshop, educators will learn how to harness the full potential of MATLAB Grader to streamline the formative assessment process. Workshop participants will gain insights into how automated feedback and the generation of insightful statistics can transform their teaching approach, making it easier to identify and address the specific areas where students need support. This workshop will enable educators to revolutionize their academic teaching with MATLAB Grader and formative assessment strategies that align with the modern educational landscape. Conclusively, this workshop is designed to equip educators with the knowledge and tools necessary to create a more engaging, responsive, and effective learning environment for their students. GECon 2024 is taking place at the Technical University of Munich, from 2 to 4 in August 2024.​​​​​​    GECon 2024 Networking Education in Germany Munich, Germany 05. - 07. August 2024

GeCon 2024 – Keynote Session “Enhancing Education with ChatGPT and Human”

München Technical University of Munich, München, Germany

GECon 2024 announces the Keynote Session with the topic "Enhancing Education with ChatGPT and Human" Rapidly emerging AI technologies are transforming educators' roles. AI tools already aid in creating engaging materials and facilitating self-study, and the future points towards personalized learning experiences tailored to individual needs. Yet, the recent reshaping of the educational landscape reminds us of the irreplaceable value of human interaction. Skills like communication, collaboration, and hands-on exploration remain central, areas where AI falls short. In this keynote, we delve into the integration of traditional teaching methods with AI, especially generative chatbots, while mindful of ethical considerations. This fusion aims to prepare educators and students for a rapidly evolving educational environment. Such a strategy not only prepares students for a future deeply intertwined with AI but also ensures they are both technically savvy and ethically aware. Dr. Leah Sharp is an Instructional Designer with a background in physics and a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Now at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, she trains professors on didactics and pedagogy, with an emphasis on educational technology. She is currently involved in a project that trains tutors to utilize AI to enhance teaching methods at Bavarian higher education institutions. This initiative focuses on the practical implementation of AI tools to improve educational outcomes. GECon 2024 is taking place at the Technical University of Munich, from 2 to 4 in August, follow our webpage (this link) and also in Linkeding (this link). ​​​​​​
