On Thursday, the 24th of October (18h-20h),
The IEEE and SPIE OSA student branch Leuven are organising a technical seminar on "Adaptive optics and free electron lasers for laser weapons"
by Professor Emile Schweicher from the Belgian Royal Militarty School.
In this seminar,
The first part will cover the theory of adaptive optics, chemical lasers and chemical oxygen iodine lasers and air borne lasers.
Military and space observation applications will be presented along the seminar.
IEEE Student Branch of Leuven invites you to its last lecture of this academic year. On Thursday, 23 May, Massimiliano Ciaramita from Google Zürich will give a lecture about entity disambiguation. For this problem in natural language processing, the meaning of a word depends on the context and has to be determined by a computer.
This lecture will take place at 23 May 2013 at 18.00 in the Auditorium of Computer Science. Afterwards a reception will be provided by the IEEE Student Branch of Leuven.
Wednesday 28 November at 19:30 the IEEE Student Branch of Leuven, in cooperation with local of PES and joint IAS-IES Student Branch chapters, organises a "Soirée Technique" technical lecture on grid-connected vehicles. The lecture is aimed at anyone with a technical interest in electric mobility and the interaction with the power system, without requiring specific background knowledge on the topic. The speakers are professor Johan Driesen (KU Leuven), Luc Vinckx (General Motors), Johan Peeters (ABB) and Jan-Willem Rombouts (Restore).
Tuesday 9 October at 20:00 the IEEE Student Branch of Leuven organises a "Soirée Technique" technical lecture on Social Networks. The lecture is aimed at everyone with a technical interest in Computer Science and related topics, without requiring specific background knowledge on the topic. The speakers are: professor Erik Duval (KU Leuven), Maarten Truyens (KBC) for professor Patrick Van Eecken (UA) and Kris Decoodt (Microsoft Belux).
From the 17th of November until the 8th of December, on four consecutive Thursdays, the IEEE student branch Leuven - PES SB chapter Leuven, organize a series of four "Soirées Techniques"on the future of electrical energy in Europe. The events are co-organized by the K.U.Leuven Energy Institute. The goal of these events is that we, as engineers, know more about energy than what can be read in the newspapers and get inside information by experts in the field.
