2014 annual report and general assembly of members
Our latest annual report is now available (2014 annual report). Also, we remind all members of ReSMiQ that our next general assembly will be held on May 7, 2015 at Polytechnique Montréal. We will present the annual report of our activities and elect the members of the executive committee as well as the board of directors for 2015-2016. The attending members will vote on the Director’s election for the next term.
Financial support of our strategic cluster
The management team of ReSMiQ is expecting the decision of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) pertaining to the grant renewal application for our strategic cluster which should be announced very soon. After sending the letter of intent in May 2014 and a full application in October, we met with the visiting committee last January. The center’s management would like to thank everyone who contributed in the growth of ReSMiQ and provided a considerable effort in the production of this application. Also, we take the opportunity of the results of the latest NSERC discovery grant program to congratulate all our members who have just renewed their grant this year and particularly all applicants who saw a significant increase.
The 13th edition of NEWCAS will be held in Grenoble on June 7 to 10. The call for papers has generated a record number of 326 articles submissions. We encourage all our members to participate in the next edition. ReSMiQ will, as for every edition, provide a valuable financial assistance.
4th edition of the ReSMiQ Innovation day (RID2015)
The 4th edition of the ReSMiQ Innovation Day (RID) will be held on October 15, 2015. This competition is open to all full-time students enrolled in a university or a college/CEGEP in the province of Québec. The call for project has been sent out and all students interested in showing their research can submit it until May 4, 2015. We are counting on all members to encourage their students to participate and circulate this announcement among their colleagues in connected fields.
The organization of the 2016 edition of the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems Conference has started this month with the first formal meeting of the local organizing committee with representatives of IEEE Meetings, Conferences & Events (MCE ), Tourism Montreal and representatives of the Sheraton Montreal. A special delegation will be present at the 2015 edition in Lisbon month of May to promote MOntréal and ISCAS2016. Thus, the technical committee will take the opportunity to meet and establish the conference program.
Camilla Baj-Rossi from the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland presented a seminar entitled “Implantable Device for Monitoring Drugs and Metabolites in Small Animals for Applications in Personalized Medicine” at Polytechnique Montréal, organized as part of our continuing training program in collaboration with the IEEE Montréal’s chapter of the Solid State circuit society (SSCS) and the Circuits and Systems Society (CASS).
