      Crosstalk 6. Electronic Warfare during World War II

      5:30 pmConference Room
      Speaker. Dr. Swaroop Sahoo
      Title. Electronic Warfare during World War II
      Abstract. During World War II various countries attained varied level of technological expertise. The technological expertise or readiness covered various fields of science and technology. Some of the fields with lot of research activities, inventions, design and experiments were electronic warfare and navigational technology.
      This talk will give an introduction to various electronic warfare techniques, related hardware inventions and uses. It will also provide an insight into the war doctrines of countries and resultant uses of electronic warfare of 1935-45. This talk will also introduce the basic details of the navigational technology used by guided bombers (for bombing and landing) and first missiles (V1 and V2) of World War 2 years.

      Wireless and Social Networks: Some Challenges and Insights

      11:00 amAuditorium

      Talk by Dr. Albert Sunny from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
      Wireless and Social Networks: Some Challenges and Insights

      Dr. Albert Sunny from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore is going to present his work on wireless and social networks on 1-March-2017 at 11 am.
      Venue: Auditorium

      Abstract

      In sensor networks, the absence of infrastructure mandates the use of ad-hoc network architectures. In these architectures, nodes are required to route data to gateway nodes over a multi-hop network. In the first half of the talk, Dr. Sunny will present a unified framework that can be used to compare different deployment scenarios, and provide a means to design efficient large-scale energy harvesting multi-hop wireless sensor networks. In spite of the presence of voluminous reservoirs of information such as digital libraries and the Internet, asking around still remains a popular means of seeking information. In scenarios where the person is interested in communal, or location-specific information, such kind of retrieval may yield better results than a global search. Hence, wireless networks should be designed, analyzed and controlled by taking into account theevolution of the underlying social networks. This alliance between social network analysis and ad-hoc network architectures can greatly advance the design of network protocols, especially in environments with opportunistic communications. Therefore, in the second half of the talk, I will present a model that captures the temporal evolution of information in social networks with memory.

      About the speaker

      Dr. Albert Sunny completed his B.Tech. in Electrical and Electronics engineering from National Institute of Technology, Calicut, India and M.Sc.(Engg.) from Department of Electronic Systems Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. He went on to complete his Ph.D. at the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. His research interests are in modelling, analysisand control of wireless and social networks.
