TRAVEL BURSARIES FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS
CAM-IES is pleased to offer travel bursaries to students and postdoctoral researchers submitting posters to this event (train fares will be reimbursed to poster presenters in the areas of: energy harvesting, sensor power systems, IoT and related fields).
Please send poster titles, affiliations and author lists to Lata Sahonta (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 23 March 2018.
Wireless sensors and other autonomous IoT devices need to harvest sufficient energy from their environment so that they can operate reliably over years without requiring maintenance or battery changes. To ensure reliable energy supply under changing environmental conditions this may require combination of different forms of energy harvesting including light, electromagnetic, vibrational or thermoelectric energy harvesting, as well as careful design of the energy system including the battery and the energy harvester so that their operating characteristics are well matched to the low power microcontrollers used for recording and transmitting the relevant information.
The workshop will bring together academic experts with backgrounds in energy materials and devices with industrial partners from a range of industries including IoT, autonomous sensors for environmental sensing and healthcare, wearable electronics etc.
The workshop will begin with a session of presentations from both industrial and academic speakers, to outline the state-of-the-art and the technological and research challenges, followed by a discussion session to identify research opportunities and potential collaborations.
