The IEEE ICCE 2024, an international gathering of scholars, industry professionals, and researchers in the field of electronics and semiconductor technology, invites submissions for a special session dedicated to Integrated Circuit (IC) Design and Semiconductors. This special session aims to highlight cutting-edge research, innovative practices, and emerging trends within the realm of semiconductor technology and IC design, encompassing both theoretical advances and practical implementations.Read More!
Cognitive information processing (CIP) currently plays important roles in many applications such as attention, encoding, memory, artificial intelligence (AI), and cognitive computing latest advances in machine thinking. As well as the characteristics of the human visual system, its information and limitations must be first clearly studied, and the artificial systems should be then developed. In this session, we discuss the wide range topics of human cognitive functions, advancements, limitations, and possibility for artificial system development.Read More!
Machine learning (ML) has been successfully applied in many fields such as speech and image recognition, computer vision, medical diagnosis, and malware detection. ML techniques may be generally classified into supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised, and reinforcement learning. The advantages of ML include the ability to learn from input data, to adapt to dynamic environments, and to support system self-organization and optimization.Read More!
Automotive applications, notably in electric vehicles (EVs), hinge crucially on power electronics and electric drives. The emergence of high-efficiency, high-power-density converters in motor drives and energy systems, driven by technologies like wide-bandgap (WBG) power electronics devices (SiC/GaN), has garnered significant attention. While Variable-speed drives (VSDs) offer a solution to reduce industry motor energy consumption by 30 to 50%, their adoption remains low, with less than 20% of electric motors currently equipped with VSDs. A 2018 ABB report suggests that globally installing VSDs for non-equipped industrial motors could cut electricity consumption by about 10%. The term Adjustable-speed drives (ASDs) is now...Read More!
Fifth-generation (5G) wireless networks have been rolled out worldwide, offering unprecedented data rates, low latencies, and high reliability. However, the current 5G still cannot meet many demands of future wireless systems, such as exceptionally high connectivity, ultra-low energy consumption, super-dense network deployment, and high security. Moreover, the historical evolution of mobile networks has witnessed a new generation about every decade. Therefore, now is the right time to investigate advanced technologies beyond 5G (B5G) and toward 6G wireless communication systems.Read More!
