Summary: In this forward-looking keynote, hear ANSYS Director of Product Management Dr. Larry Williams share insights on how high-performance electronic simulation has been turned inside out with electromagnetic field simulation. Modern simulation has physics-based solvers in the foreground supported by circuit and system simulation rather than the other way around. Dr. Williams will highlight the growth of advanced signal integrity analysis, from the creation of HFSS to the automated electronic assembly simulation of today. He will conclude with his vision on what the future will bring and how it will impact organizations that embrace it.
Bio: Dr. Larry Williams is Director of Product Management at ANSYS Inc., Electronics Business Unit. He is responsible for the strategic direction of the company’s electrical and electronics products, including the High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) finite element simulator. Dr. Williams is an expert in the application of electromagnetic field simulation to the design of antennas, microwave components, and high-speed electronics. He has over 20 years’ experience in the fields of electromagnetics and communications engineering, has delivered technical lectures internationally, and has published numerous technical papers on the subject. He and his co-authors won the prestigious H.A. Wheeler Prize Paper Award in the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 1995, and the best paper award at DesignCon 2005. He serves on the UC Irvine Henry Samueli School of Engineering Dean’s Advisory Board and on the California State Polytechnic University Electrical Engineering Department Advisory Board.

Dr. Williams held various senior engineering positions in the Engineering Division of Hughes Aircraft Company, Radar Systems Group, where he was responsible for hardware design and development of advanced active phased array radar antennas, array element and aperture design, associated microwave subsystems, and antenna metrology. He received his Masters, Engineers, and Ph.D. degrees from UCLA in 1989, 1993 and 1995, respectively.

Summary:
Β A review of semiconductor and package technology choices for 5G communication systems are considered. The market context for 4G and future 5G systems along with existing RF Front-End UE architectures are reviewed with emphasis on SIP technology. Silicon-on-Insulator, InP HBTs, and other technology candidates are discussed within this context. We conclude that rapid customization at the module level is needed in order to serve different manifestations of 5G systems in the early phases of market deployment and demonstrators.

Summary:
Reliable and efficient electrical grid operation is critical to society. Electrical utility industry has been experiencing significant changes in the last decade caused by new technology trends, environmental drivers and weather patterns, changing public needs, and regulatory requirements. The electrical power and energy industry in the next decades will be different than it is today to meet the demands of the society and address challenges. We are at a crossroads in making business and technical decisions that will allow us to optimally and cost-effectively manage the grid.

The presentation will address how electrical grid developed since the first electric power plant, what some of the challenges and opportunities facing modern grids are, and how industry trends and innovation will shape the future grid.

Meeting Dates: March 19, 2017

Location: Manhattan Beach Marriott

RSVP: OFC 2017

Summary:
SEARIS provides a forum for researchers and practitioners working on the design, development, and support of realtime interactive systems (RIS). These systems span from Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR) environments to novel Human-Computer Interaction systems (such as multimodal or multitouch architectures) and entertainment applications in general. Their common principle is a strong user centric orientation which requires real-time processing of simulation aspects as well as input/output events according to perceptual constraints. Therefore, we encourage researchers and developers of real-time human computer interaction systems of all flavors to share their experiences and learn from each other during this workshop.
