Event Summary

More than 50 researchers from Europe, Asia and US participated in this three-days event this year. In addition to, a number of local students of Tampere University of Technology took part in the Summer School to see the recent advantages of the research, related to nano communications - one of the most promising topic in the area for the past few years.

In particular, organizers were very glad to see Prof. Ian Akyildiz from Georgia Tech., USA, Finnish Distinguished Professor (FiDIPro) by the Academy of Finland, starting 2012, who opened a conference and gave a keynote presentation about the perspectives of the nano communications and major challenges in the area.

The first day was continued by Prof. Ilangko Balasingham, NTNU, Norway, "Electromagnetic Waves and Neuron Communications" and Prof Leena Ukkonen from TUT with her talk about New Frontiers in Wireless Identification and Sensing Systems.

Figure3

The second day was more focused on molecular nano communications with such interesting speeches, as given by Dr Sasitharan Balasubramaniam from TUT "Bacteria Nanonetworks: Communication and Networking Opportunities" and Dr. Pietro Lio (on photo) from Cambridge, UK - "Bacterial nanonetworks: Communication from inside to outside the cell".

Figure4

Afternoon session was reserved for Prof. Craig Forest with his guest lecture on "Empirical measurement of molecular communication between bacteria on a microfluidic chip".

Figure5

The third day program included presentations by another FiDiPro Prof Manos Tentzeris, Dr Toni Björninen and Dr Olga Kara talking about inkjet-printed nanotechnology-enabled RFID, brain-machine interfaces and neuron-based communications. respectively.

Those, who survived up to the very end, got a chance to leave there faces in history :)
