On Saturday, October 23rd the HNF will celebrate its 25th anniversary. To this occasion the IEEE will award an "IEEE Special Citation in History" plaque to the HNF to recognize the achievements of the museum in teaching a broad audience about the history of computers. The celebration and dedication ceremony will be streamed online in German and English language. I would be glad if you could distribute the link to everyone who might be interested and if you would join us online to this special event. The video stream will be available at at 7pm CEST (5pm UTC, 1pm EDT): https://www.hnf.de/veranstaltungen/events/jubilaeum-live.html
Solar Power Systems for Off-Grid Communities and Technical Design of Solar-Powered Electrical Devices. Join this webinar to hear from two experts in the area of photovoltaics in humanitarian projects. The first half of the session will cover design to implementation of off-grid solar power systems by looking into examples already installed in Zambia. Then learn more about the technical considerations when designing solar-powered electrical devices. https://bit.ly/HACSolarPower
In addition to the new website, we want to introduce virtual round table meetings. In this event we want to establish a friendly atmosphere for our members to discuss, socialize and communicate. IEEE members are invited to join us using the following link: https://spatial.chat/s/ieeegermany !!! HeadSet & Mic recommended, webcam optional but would be nice !!!
Prof. Iniguez wanted to held the distinguished lecture in person at the NanoP competence center of the THM University of Applied Sciences in Gießen Germany. Due to the increasing numbers of infected persons by COVID in Germanyand Europe and the announced new regulations, the EDS Germany Chapter, the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen and Prof. Iniguez decided to shift the planned hybrid lecture to a fully virtual lecture. “This is the only option which makes sense at the current situation.” The distinguished lecture on “Roadmap of Flexible Electronics” was held on November 23, 2021. It was organized by the EDS Germany Chapter and co-sponsored by the NanoP from THM – University of Applied Sciences. The DL was attended by 33 IEEE participants, as well as other non IEEE members. The distinguished lecture of Benjamin from DEEEA, University Rovira i Virgili, Spain gave an overview and perspective on the concept roadmap of flexible electronics. The lecture started with an introduction into the topic. Gave same market share values and focus on the most promising materials organic and oxide semiconductors. Different devices, their scope and potential stakeholders were shown. Afterwards, a technology status was reported by Prof. Iniguez including the challenges and potential solutions. The lecture finished with some recommendations with focus on modeling, especially where modeling can support technology finding solutions. The lecture concluded with an increasing demand by wearable’s and the need of flexible electronics which are biodegradable.
