Siemens and Cohda Wireless plan to work together in the area of vehicle-to-infrastructure devices, which share information between vehicles and roadside infrastructure. Siemens says it will deploy transport infrastructure including sign gantries and traffic lights. The District of Columbia’s water utility, DC Water, unveiled a $470 million waste-to-energy project that will produce 10 megawatts of electricity from the wastewater treatment process. The energy will power around one-third of a water treatment plant. An investment of nearly $600 million by Rolls-Royce will be used to upgrade and modernize its Indianapolis, Ind., operations. The investment aims to replace outdated infrastructure and some equipment that dates from World War II. A report from the statistical arm of the National Science Foundation says that from 2003 to 2013, the number of immigrant scientists and engineers grew from 3.4 million to 5.2 million.

The 2016 event was mentioned in our writeup on a startup from USC that built interest in their affordable AR device while sharing cabin space with venture capitalists onboard a chartered flight to the event.
In 2018, the IEEE Radar Conference arrives in vibrant Oklahoma City for the first time. Being centrally located in the US, OKC is known for great Southern cuisine, Midwestern hospitality, and a good helping of Wild West cowboy culture. Nearby Norman, OK is also the home of NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory and the Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, who collectively have driven much of the modern-day weather radar technology in the US. Do not miss this exciting week filled with novel radar advances and down-home fun.
For more than 30 years, the combined annual Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits has been the world’s premier mid-year conference for microelectronics technology, providing an opportunity for the world’s top device technologists, circuit and system designers to exchange leading-edge ideas. Held together since 1987, the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits have alternated each year between sites in the US and Japan, enabling attendees to learn about new directions in the development of VLSI technology & circuit design through the industry’s leading research and development presentations.
The comprehensive technical programs at the two Symposia – fully overlapping again this year – are supplemented with short courses, invited speakers and several evening panel sessions. Since 2012, the Symposia have presented joint focus sessions that include invited and contributed papers on topics of mutual interest to both technology and circuit attendees. A single registration enables participants to attend both Symposia.
