25 Years IEEE WIE | Extraordinary Women Extraordinary Science Seminar Series

Join us for our next Seminar, 06 May 2022 at 9 am EST.

Speaker: Alessandra Flammini

Topic: Distributed measurements and IoT

 

About the speaker

 

Join us on 6 May at 9 am EST. for an engaging talk with Alessandra Flammini.

 

Alessandra Flammini graduated with honors in Physics from the University of Rome in 1985. She is in charge of the *eLUX interdepartmental laboratory* on smart grids and smart living. Since 2019 she has been the chairman of the council of the aggregate study program. She is the author of more than 300 international publications, including journals, patents, and conference proceedings.

 

 

The following subjects will be explored

 

Starting from existing IoT systems, emerging application fields such as mobility will be explored. Distributed measurements, i.e. sensor networks, is evolving in the Internet of Things, including more types of device, reducing waste, and increasing data for artificial intelligence algorithms. The concept of the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) foresees a network in which vehicles can communicate with each other to manage traffic, and emergencies and limit pollution. To demonstrate the feasibility of such a vision, some low-cost commercial devices, suitable for current vehicles, show a time latency

on the order of tens of seconds.

International Women’s Day, 1 Year Anniversary for the IEEE WIE UK & Ireland ambassadors’ scheme

According to Sheryl Sandberg, “In the future there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.” IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) UK & Ireland ambassadors’ scheme is continuously striving to bring this future sooner. On this International Women’s Day, we are proud to celebrate our first anniversary. Indeed, it was a year full of events, activities and struggles to not only promote women in engineering and technology but also to create a culture of diversity & inclusion and accepting it as a norm rather than an exception. We envision a vibrant community of IEEE women and men collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.

 

This video sums up our past year’s events and reflects on how we are progressing to reach our goal. Apart from our main goal of global diversity in science, technology, mathematics, computing and engineering, our events also aim to expose the audience to novel areas and aspects of engineering and computing which solves real world problems, establish a link for industrial collaborations, networking and mentorship and create connections for future research opportunities. Last year, we organised four ‘Early Career Talks’ to provide recent PhD graduates and postdoctoral researchers a platform to share their work. This on-going program is now planning to bring together the fifth episode of the series. There were also two main events for promoting a diverse industry-academia collaboration, titled ‘Challenges and Opportunities: Towards Better WIE Future’ and ‘Empowering Women in the Triple Helix Model’. All our events included variety of topics and speakers representing men and women from both academia and industry. We are grateful to the sponsors, speakers and attendees of events for making them a success!

 

We are keen to continue working towards a better future for humanity both in terms of technology and diversity and look forward to your participation and encouragement. We wish a happy International Women’s Day to all women and men supporting equality!
