University of Toronto Team wins Innovate Canada FPGA programming competition
We are proud to announce the winners of the 2008 Innovate Canada FPGA programming competition. This program is sponsored by industry to encourage risk-taking and innovation at the university levels in the area of hardware/software co-design. The design competition provided student groups with leading edge Altera FPGA based development boards, FPGA design tools from Altera and C-to-FPGA tools from Impulse, and engineering support from both companies in their efforts to develop commercially useful and innovative applications.
All of the resulting applications are being made available to the public via the www.innovatecanada.ca website

Professor Jose Azana is awarded the prestigious IEEE/LEOS Young Investigator award
Professor Jose Azana has been recognized by the IEEE LEOS, Laser & Electro Optics, society for his pioneer contributions on innovative ultra-fast optical pulse processing techniques, particularly temporal self-imaging (Talbot) effects, using all-fiber grating technologies. He is the 2008 winner of LEOS Young Investigator Award. The award was presented to Dr. Azana at the May plenary session of the OSA-CLEO conference celebrated in San Jose, California. This is a very prestigious recognition that is coming to Canada for the first time.
All our congratulations!
Newly elevated IEEE Canada members to Senior Status

2nd Climate Change Technology Conference (May 12-15, 2009, Hamilton, ON)
The 2nd Climate Change Technology Conference (CCTC 2009) is a Canadian and international forum for engineers, scientists, policy advisors, industry and other stakeholders to share and exchange new information and ideas for dealing with climate change and global warming. It also provides an opportunity for participants to keep abreast of emerging techniques and technologies for the mitigation of, and adaptation to, the impacts of climate change. The CCTC2009 is organized by the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) and nine of its member societies. The CCTC2009 will be held on the campus of McMaster University in Hamilton. The theme of the conference is:
CLIMATE CHANGE ... DEAL WITH IT!
The above theme reflects the need to prepare practical responses to climate change and global warming. The proposed conference topic categories are:
· Impacts: Environmental and economic impacts; potential safety, health and security risks
· Monitoring: GHG tracking, emission measurement, engineering issues and indicators
· Modeling: Emissions/economic/climate, infrastructure design, energy systems and lifecycle
· Mitigation: GHG management, carbon free energy, carbon management and biofixation
· Adaptation: Engineering design, planning, processes, tools, risk management
· Biorefining: Products, biochemical and thermo-chemical technology
· Education: Strategies, paradigms and effect on the professiont
· Standards: International standards initiatives, protocols, benefits of standards and other initiatives
· Policy and Regulation: Emission trading, environment, carbon sink and emission reduction incentives
Mr. Eric Williams

First International Symposium on Applied Sciences in Biomedical and Communication Technologies (October 25-28, 2008)
ISABEL is organized for the first time. Aalborg University is proud to host the event on 25-28 October 2008 at the Aalborg Kongres og Kultur Centre in Aalborg, Denmark.
The inter-disciplinary approach is becoming more and more a trend in scientific and engineering communities. This trend is confirmed by the strong connections between two of the most prosperous research areas, bio-medical and communication engineering, also with respect to pure sciences (e.g., mathematics and physics), which applied to the former show to be extremely powerful tools. This symposium provides an ideal platform for worldwide engineers and scientists. Indeed, internationally recognized researches and practitioners will share cutting-edge information, address hot issues, explore emerging technologies, exchange and build upon ideas. Particular stress will be put on the current and potential connections between pure sciences, biomedical and communication engineering, highlighting the beneficial synergies among these research areas.
Aalborg is an old, Danish city dating back to around the year 1040. With its approximately 200,000 inhabitants, it is the fourth largest city in Denmark and the capital of region of northern Jutland, which has more than 600,000 inhabitants and thereby is the third largest region in Denmark. Today, Aalborg is an active city of commerce and service while still having retained a significant industrial and production sector. During the recent decade, the major developments have taken place within IT, education and research. Close to 14,000 students are enrolled at Aalborg University, ranging from students at preparatory courses through doctoral-level candidates. Of these, 12.5% are international students, coming from different countries around the world.
The organizers of ISABEL'08 wish you welcome to Aalborg, Denmark, the "Mobile Valley".

New in Computing: Agile Development
Maurizio Morisio, Computing Now board member and IEEE Software magazine's associate editor in chief for online initiatives, has gathered several articles on how the agile approach works, its results, and how practitioners can use it. Read more at: http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/computingnow/
New Online Directory Opens Doors to Networking
IEEE Membernet http://www.ieee.org/web/membership/memberNet.html
It's not quite Facebook, but a new online directopry will let members discover IEEE colleagues they may not know but with whom they share a common interest. Being able to find and connect with other industry professionals is one of the key reasons people join IEEE. And with the new IEEE memberNet, members will be able to pinpoint people according to such criteria as technical interest, geographic region, and society membership. The network is available only to IEEE members at no charge.
Log into myIEEE (http://www.ieee.org/myieee) with your IEEE Web account.
Opt in to the system through My Opt-In Preference link (This takes you to a page in myAccount where you can choose the information from your member profile that you want to display).
Once you have saved your information the memberNet gets updated in real time and your information will be displayed.
You can search for others by their first and/or last name.
You can also look members up in different geographical locations, society they belong to, and etc.
