IEEE Antennas and Propagation Chapter, IEEE Kerala Section conducted two seminars and two hands on workshops at Trivandrum and Cochin in 2018.
The first seminar was organized on 27th of March, 2018 (Tuesday), at the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), D3 Building, Trivandrum where Mr. Latheef A. Shaik, Scientist, Space Application Centre (SAC) ,ISRO, Ahmedabad handled a one day session on “Multi-functional Antennas for Cognitive Radio Applications”. The event was attended by the staff and students of IEEE SB at IIST Trivandrum.
The second seminar was hosted on April 27, 2018, Seminar Hall, Lourdes Matha College of Science and Technology, Trivandrum where Dr. Mohammad S. Sharawi, Professor, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia delivered a seminar talk on “Antenna Design for 5G Wireless Standards: Current Status and Future Prospects”.
The first hands on workshop was held on May 15, 2018 at the Department of Electronics Auditorium, Cochin University of Science and Technology, Cochin. The workshop showcased the capabilities of COMSOL, case study analysis and how COMSOL can be used for teaching and research across various departments such as electronics, chemical, mechanical, civil, communication and other allied disciplines. It was followed by a live demo to set up a model using COMSOL. This was organised in collaboration with Department of Electronics, Cochin University of Science and Technology and COMSOL Multiphysics Pvt Ltd, Bangalore.
The second hands on workshop was organized on 5the 25 and 26 of June, 2018, Department of Electronics Auditorium, Cochin University of Science and Technology, Cochin. This event was conducted in collaboration with the Division of Electronics, School of Engineering, Cochin University of Science and Technology and Trident Techlabs Pvt Ltd., Bangalore. The two day workshop involved hands on session of the latest version of the MoM based IE3D software. Several HF designs for antennas, filters, FSS and their simulations were demonstrated and discussed. Both the workshops were well attended from the research scholars, PG students and faculty members from CUSAT as well as other neighbouring institutions across Kerala.
