May 22 – CORDIS journalist cover Phoenix
The Phoenix project has been covered by CORDIS journalists (and is translated into six languages!), read it for yourself here.
Since the dawn of humankind, exploration of certain places, ranging from the depths of the oceans to the edges of the universe, has led to numerous discoveries. However, there are also several environments that need to be examined but can’t be directly observed, like chemical or nuclear reactors, underground water or oil distribution pipes, space and inside of the body. The EU-funded Phoenix project has been addressing this challenge by developing a new line of technology that will offer the opportunity to get to unreachable places.
May 2 – Public talk @ Eindhoven
Anil Yaman gave a public talk on May 2 at the Innovation Café Eindhoven organized by the art and technology society, in which he discussed the Phoenix project. The complete presentation is accessible at this link.
Apr 4 – Interview
Anil Yaman and Giovanni Iacca were interviewed by Ingrid Fadelli from Techxplore to discuss their recent conference publication entitled “Learning with Delayed Synaptic Plasticity”, to be presented at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computing Conference (GECCO) 2019 (more info at this blog post).
Apr 4 – EvoStar 2018
During EvoStar 2018 (http://www.evostar.org/2018/), the leading European event on bio-inspired computation, which was held 4-6 April 2017 in Parma, the Phoenix project again, as in 2017, contributed to and chaired the EvoKNOW theme. EvoKNOW is a special Phoenix track that was developed by Dr. Giovanni Iacca and Prof. Gerd Ascheid, both Phoenix scientists, to promote the WP3 (Human Interface) work to a specialist audience. EvoKNOW track is about Knowledge Incorporation in Evolutionary Computation and has a large overlap with the knowledge representation work within the Phoenix project. Furthermore one of the Phoenix researchers had his paper accepted as full talk in the EvoNUM track.
Sept 3 – Phoenix at Eurosensor 2017
During the Eurosensor conference (http://www.eurosensors2017.eu), which was held 3-6 September 2017 in Paris, around 500 posters and oral presentations where presented in the field of sensor and MEMS fabrication. In this event, Sina Sadeghpour, a Phoenix researcher from KU Leuven, presented a poster and an oral presentation about “Ultrasound resonating shell” and “Wide bandwidth pMUT”, respectively.
July 16 – Phoenix workshop at GECCO 2017
On July 16, 2017 the Phoenix project organized a dedicated Phoenix workshop as part of the pre-conference workshops of this year’s Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2017, http://gecco-2017.sigevo.org) in Berlin. Next to the interactive discussion, this workshop consisted of two Phoenix talks and an invited talk. See Deliverable 8.2 (Dissemination workshop 1) of this project.
Mar 23 – Phoenix at ICT Open 2017
The yearly ICT Open event, this year in Amersfoort The Netherlands, where all Dutch ICT related research, from both companies as well as universities is showcased, Haoming Xin, one of the Phoenix researchers, presented a poster with Phoenix project results (blog entry).
May 5 – Seminar Ultra-sound at KU Leuven
This seminar was attended by a group of 45 PhD students and some professors. It involved lively discussions, and the KU Leuven Research Valorization Manager (David Maes) was enthusiastic about the results, and will investigate possible applicability in the near future.
Apr 19 – Phoenix contribution to EvoStar 2017
During EvoStar 2017 (http://www.evostar.org/2017/), the leading European event on bio-inspired computation, which was held 19-21 April 2017 in Amsterdam, the Phoenix project contributed to and chaired the EvoKNOW theme. EvoKNOW is a special Phoenix track that was developed by Dr. Giovanni Iacca and Dr. Matt Coler, both Phoenix scientists, to promote the WP3 (Human Interface) work to a specialist audience. EvoKNOW track is about Knowledge Incorporation in Evolutionary Computation and has a large overlap with the knowledge representation work within the Phoenix project. Two papers of the Phoenix team where presented at this conference.
Mar 27 – Phoenix at DATE 2017
During the Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE 2017), the European event for electronic system design and test, which was held March 27-31, 2017 in Lausanne, Switzerland, Phoenix scientists Andraud et al. contributed with a paper and a presentation. (blog entry)
Sept 12 – Phoenix mini-symposium at TU/e
On September 12, 2016 the Phoenix project organized a mini-symposium at the TU/e in Eindhoven. See the invitation and agenda for this event as an appendix to this report. Targeted audience for this event was the scientific community of the participating universities. Furthermore the industrial partners were invited. Next to two academic presentation from project members, two academic researchers from outside the Phoenix team contributed to the symposium with a presentation and added to the discussion.
Oct 21 – Phoenix introduction at CWTe Research Retreat at TU/e
During the yearly Centre for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWTe) Research Retreat, which was held on October 21, 2015, the Phoenix research area was introduced by Erik Duisterwinkel, one of the INCAS3 researchers at that time. In the program this presentation Erik introduced “Exploration with bare sensor balls” (blog entry)
