Houska Award 2017

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Mario Huemer and Dipl.-Ing. Alexander Melzer

The Houska Award is the largest Austrian price for industry-oriented research and yearly honors outstanding projects. This year the ISP was nominated for the five best among the total 27 contributions in the category “University Research” with the project “Short-Range Leakage Cancelation in FMCW Radar Transceiver MMICs Using an Artificial On-Chip Target” (German title: “Unterdrückung kritischer Signalreflexionen zur Erhöhung der Reichweite von hochintegrierten KFZ-Radar-Abstandssensoren”). The nomination was carried out in a two-step procedure from an advisory board and an expert jury. The award ceremony will take place on May 4, 2017 in Vienna.

VDE-ITG Fachgruppentreffen an der JKU

Die Fachgruppe „Algorithmen für die Signalverarbeitung“ von VDE-ITG ist eine Gruppe von Forschern aus Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten und Industrie in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz zum Thema Signalverarbeitung. Diese Gruppe wurde im Jahr 1986 von Prof. Schüssler und Prof. Mecklenbräuker gegründet. Seitdem tagt die Fachgruppe zweimal im Jahr, abwechselnd an Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten oder in der Industrie. Bei jedem Treffen ist ein Mitglied der Fachgruppe der Gastgeber und er organisiert das wissenschaftliche Programm, bestehend aus Vorträgen und Demonstrationen aus seiner Organisation. Das Ziel der Fachgruppe ist ein besserer Wissensaustausch zwischen Hochschulen, Forschungsinstituten und Industrie.

Die 62. Sitzung fand am 14.10.2016 an der JKU Linz, organisiert vom Institut für Signalverarbeitung sowie dem Institut für Nachrichtentechnik und Hochfrequenzsysteme, statt. Neben der Vorstellung der JKU Linz und der Institute ansich, wurden technische Vorträge zu Themen aus dem Mobilfunk und der Nachrichtentechnik, sowie der Radartechnik gehalten. Weiters hielt Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bin Yang einen Vortrag zu "Deep Learning". (VDE, ITG Fachgruppe)
