Part-Time Prof of the Year 2012

Congratulations to Professor Rami Abielmona, of the Faculty of Engineering, winner of the 2012 Part-Time Prof of the Year Award!

You are all invited to the Award Ceremony during which Professor Abielmona will deliver his lecture:

Advances in Sensor Networking and Data Fusion

Friday November 23rd 2012, 3 p.m.

Jazzy Restaurant, University Centre, 1st floor

Be part of this tribute to excellence in teaching, support our winner, and meet him and other University officials over hors d'oeuvres.

Abstract of the lecture: The talk will present current research and development in sensor networking. The talk will also present various architectures of data fusion. Fusion has been tackled from many different angles, and for various assorted applications. The underlying goal is the analysis of a refined state estimate for the process under observation. Using machine learning and data fusion techniques, we design tools for collaborative signal processing, tasking and querying as well as data aggregation and dissemination. Some user applications of these technologies are: object detection, classification and tracking, integrated views, state estimation and habitat monitoring. The talk will touch upon and outline some of the requirements and challenges faced by the sensor networking community, and discuss methods to advance the field altogether.
