Making a Graduate School Plan

April 20, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In this intensive workshop, we'll walk through the steps of identifying a right fit graduate program and help you plan out the who, what, when, where, and how of applying to graduate schools. Bring a laptop if you have one, a notebook, and come prepared with some thoughts about what’s next! If you can’t make it, contact URF@Northeastern.edu to access our Canvas workshop site (graduating seniors only or alumni only please). Registration

MS Thesis Defense: Yuezhou Liu

April 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

MS Thesis Defense: Optimizations of Caching Networks: Fairness and Application to Mobile Networks Yuezhou Liu Location: Zoom Link Abstract: In-network caching is playing a more and more important role in today's network architectures, because of the explosive growth of data traffic due to the proliferation of mobile devices and demands for high-volume media content, as well as the development of low-latency applications, such as VR/AR and cloud gaming. The replication of popular contents in the caches that located closer to…

ECE MS Thesis Defense: Tianhong Xu

April 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

MS Thesis Defense: A novel simple power analysis (SPA) attack on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Tianhong Xu Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), as a widely used public-key cryptography, is vulnerable to simple power analysis(SPA) attacks. There are many countermeasures against simple power analysis(SPA) attacks on ECC implementation, the Always-add algorithm is one of the most popular countermeasures. This research proposes a new SPA attack which is effective to the ECC encrypting implemented with Always-add algorithm, it uses…

ECE PhD Dissertation Defense: Linbin Chen

April 22, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

PhD Dissertation Defense: Low Power Designs using Approximate Computing and Emerging Memories at Nanoscales Linbin Chen Location: Zoom Link Abstract: A power efficient integrated circuit design is essential for mobile and embedded computer systems. This dissertation proposes several novel low power designs using approximate computing and emerging memories for computers with arithmetic circuits and large on-chip caches. Initially, low power approximate designs are proposed both for fixed point radix-2 and high-radix division at circuit-level. Then, an approximate parallel CORDIC algorithm…

MS Thesis Defense: Duschia Bodet

April 22, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

MS Thesis Defense: Modulations to Exploit the THz Band Duschia Bodet Location: Zoom Link Abstract: Terahertz (THz)-band (0.1-10 THz) communication has been envisioned as a key technology to enable wireless Terabit-per-second (Tbps) links. At THz frequencies, the path-loss is governed by the spreading loss and the molecular absorption loss. The latter also determines the available transmission bandwidth, which drastically shrinks with distance. As a result, traditional modulation schemes cannot fully take advantage the THz channel, and new modulation schemes are…

Plant Shift Initiative | Speaker Series: Engineering & Climate Correction

April 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

There is no debate that in order to combat climate change we need to think of creative solutions. Join us on Earth Day, April 22nd, to hear more about the Plant Shift Initiative which is dedicated to spark new “plant-based” ideas in all forms of productions and activities. For decades, entrepreneurs and leaders have invented new systems to minimize the carbon footprint in every part of our lives. To kick off this series, we will hear from disrupters Sebastiano Cossia…
