25th anniversary of the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum with videostream

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):  

Photovoltaics in Humanitarian Projects

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.

Virtual Round Table Meeting

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: !!! HeadSet & Mic recommended, webcam optional but would be nice !!!    

R8 Meeting in Frankfurt

The 117th IEEE Region 8 Committee Meeting held in Frankfurt am Main, from Friday 5th of November 2021 to Sunday 7th of November 2021.

2021 IEEE Vehicular Networking Conference (VNC)

The conference is scheduled to be held in Ulm, DE on 2021-11-10 to 2021-11-12 with IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Society, IEEE Communications Society participating as a sponsor of this event.

Distinguished Lecture on “Roadmap of Flexible Electronics”

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.

Distinguished Lecture on “Impact and Future of Nanoelectronics”

The EDS Germany Chapter and NanoP proudly presents Prof. Hiroshi Iwai Vice Dean and Distinguished Professor from ICST. NYCU, Taiwan for a Distinguished Lecture on “Impact and Future of Nanoelectronics”. The lecture will be held on 18th February 2022 at 10am Berlin time. Interest participants please register via IEEE vTools by the following link: Abstract: Progress of micro-/nano-electronics in the past 50 years was tremendous. Because of the continuous size reduction of the electron devices, the performance, cost, energy consumption, volume, and weight of electronic machines/systems have improved with the order of billions to trillion times in comparison with the early 1990’s when electronics started with vacuum tubes. Microelectronics started at the beginning of 1970’s with LSI (Large Scale Integrated circuits) with the minimum device feature size of 10 µm providing us the microprocessors, and improved our society dramatically. Now, the nano-CMOS VLSIs (Very Large Scale Integrated circuits) with the minimum feature size of 10 nm order, provided us intelligent smart society with internet, 5G smart phone, and AI machine. While demands of the smart society to high-performance semiconductor devices are increasing, the downsizing of the electron devices is approaching to its limit, and there will be no pico-electronics anymore next to the nano-electronics. In this presentation, the present status and future of nanoelectronics are explained. Hiroshi Iwai Biography: Prof. Hiroshi Iwai was born in Tokyo, Japan and received B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Tokyo. He worked at Toshiba Corporation from 1973 to 1999, developing NMOS, CMOS, BiCMOS, and mixed-signal LSI technologies and products. In 1999, he moved to Tokyo Institute of Technology and conducted nano CMOS research until 2020. In 2020, he received the Yushan Scholar title from the Taiwan government and worked at ICST, NCTU. He is currently a Vice Dean and Distinguished Chair Pofessor, ICST, NYCU, Taiwan and a Professor Emeritus, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. His received awards include IEEE J.J. Ebers Award, Yamazaki Teiich Prize, IEEE Paul Rapapport Award, IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award, ECS Thomas Callinan Award, and ECS Gordon E. Moore Medal. He is a life fellow of IEEE, anawarded life member and fellow of ECS, and a fellow of IEEJ, IEICE, and JSAP. He served as chairs/members/editors of academic societies/conferences/journals. He served the President of IEEE EDS, the Director of IEEE Division I and Chair of ECS Japan Section.
