JWOC 2021

Date : 7 octobre 2021

Lieu :

Amphi 1, Bâtiment Eiffel, CentraleSupéléc, 3 rue Joliot-Curie, 91192 Gif-sur-Yvette cedex


Cette conférence s’adresse principalement aux étudiants de première et deuxième année d’université, aux doctorants et étudiants de master et de troisième année d’écoles d’ingénieurs de Paris-Saclay. L’objectif est de donner à ces étudiants l’opportunité de présenter leurs travaux scientifiques et leurs sujets de recherche lors d’une conférence avec des conférenciers prestigieux, issus du monde universitaire et de l’industrie et de développer leur esprit critique.

Les résultats attendus de la conférence sont :

  • Introduction de la recherche “Wireless and Optical Communications” aux étudiants,
  • Donner l’opportunité aux doctorants de deuxième année de faire une soutenance de mi-parcours auprès d’un public plus large,
  • Mise en évidence des tout premiers résultats scientifiques des étudiants, amélioration du réseautage et des débats entre étudiants, participants et conférenciers

* L’inscription et le pass sanitaire seront obligatoires pour venir sur place (dans la limite des places disponibles).
Les inscriptions pour les repas seront clôturées le 30 septembre 2021.

David López Pérez, Expert at Huawei Technologies France

‘Non-terrestrial Communications: UAV and Satellites’
Drones—a.k.a. UAVs—are taking over many processes requiring efficient, automated, and flexible machines. For their whole ecosystem to take off, the wireless community is trying to address the fundamental challenge of providing reliable cellular service to this new class of mobile devices in both 5G and the future 6G networks. Simultaneously, the cellular communications industry is taking one step upward to the sky: integrating satellite communications in next-generation mobile networks with the ultimate goal of providing anything, anytime, anywhere connectivity. This trend is being followed closely by academia, with a tremendous effort in designing and optimizing the integrated terrestrial and non-terrestrial cellular network of tomorrow. In light of the unprecedented interest in this field, this presentation introduces and blends academic and industrial views to take a holistic approach to UAV and satellite cellular communications.

Dr. David López-Pérez is an Expert and Technical Leader at Huawei Paris Research Center, France, who has devoted most of his career to the study of both cellular and Wi-Fi networks, where his main research interests are in network performance analysis, both theoretical- and simulation-based, network planning and optimisation as well as technology and feature development. David’s main contributions are around the understanding of small cells and ultra-dense networks. He has also pioneered work on energy efficiency, cellular and Wi-Fi inter-working, and investigated both multi-antenna capabilities and ultra-reliable low latency features for future indoor networks. David was recognised as Bell Labs Distinguished Member of Staff in 2019, has authored 1 book on small cells, and has published more than 150 research manuscripts on a variety of related topics. David has filed 54 patents applications with more than 25 granted as of today, and has received a number of prestigious awards. He is an editor of IEEE TWC, and currently the Huawei Paris Research Centre Ambassador.

Charis Mesaritakis, Associate Professor at the University of the Aegean, Greece

Neuromorphic Photonic Circuits as an enabling technology for near future high-speed optical links

 Prof. Charis Mesaritakis acquired his diplom, M.Sc and Ph.D from National and Kapodistrian Univeristy of Athens (Greece). His Ph.D thesis focused on the experimental characterization and numerical modelling of novel regimes of quantum dot mode locked lasers. He has participated as a researcher in 10 FP6-FP7 and Horizon2020 EU projects. He has been awarded a postdoctoral EU Marie-Curie Fellowship, involving high precision laser telemetry in III-V Labs (France); Followed by two competitive national research grants, PROMITHEAS from the G. Latsis foundation and HFRI-GSRT NEBULA, both focusing on the investigation of photonic neuromorphic technologies and photonic machine learning. Currently he serves as technical manager for the H2020 NEoteRIC project also focusing on photonic neuromorphic paradigms. Since 2019, he is an associate professor at the department of Information and Communication Systems Engineering at the University of the Aegean, splitting his research interest among design/implement photonic neuromorphic systems for high bandwidth applications and photonic physical layer cryptographic modules (Η2020 KONFIDO, GSRT- SAFE-IT). He is author and co-author of more than 80 publications in highly cited journals and international conferences focusing on quantum-dot laser dynamics, neuromorphic schemes and physical layer security. He holds two patents, one for photonic-physical unclonable functions modules for implementing physical layer security and a second for a photonic Neuromorphic Optical Processor. He serves as regular reviewer for IEEE, OSA, AIP and Springer Journals whereas he serves as guest editor for MDPI’s Applied Sciences journal.
