From Bell and Marconi to 5G
Innovation Director - Thales Air Systems
President - Normandie AeroEspace
Abstract: Since Maxwell, Hertz, Bell and Marconi have demonstrated the way the electromagnetic fields are propagating and set up the very first applications , equations are remaining the same while technology has evolved dramatically offering wide range of powerful equipment’s.
Graduated from the Engineering School ENSEA (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Electronique et de ses Applications). He has been working first as Microwave Engineer to develop solid state amplifiers for Microwave links and for Radar applications. He is currently appointed as Innovation Director of the Microwave Department of Thales Land and Air System Company. He is in charge of research and development of advanced technologies for microwave equipment for RADAR applications. He is deeply involved in European contracts for future hardware technologies development. He is also associated professor at the University of Rouen (France) and the ESIGELEC Engineering School, teaching microwave, telecommunication and radar techniques. He recently developed a specific training center called MRTC (Microwave & Radar Training Centre). He is currently President of an Aerospace cluster in Normandie called NAE (Normandie Aerospace) linking large companies, SMEs, Research Laboratories and Education Centers in order to develop Aerospace, Space, Defense and Security business in Normandie

Collecting and displaying sensor data with Arduino
Bordeaux INP - IMS Laboratory
Abstract: Arduino is a platform for prototyping interactive objects for creative use, consisting of an electronic board and a programming environment.
It enables the creation of electronic systems of varying complexity.
Arduino is open-source and is based on free resources both in software (programming language derived from C) and hardware.
The objectives of the session are:
- To be able to exchange information between a computer and an Arduino board via a serial link;
- To be able to collect analog data from a luminosity sensor;
- To be able to collect digital data from a humidity/temperature sensor.
- To be able to collect digital information from a pressure sensor.
Christophe JEGO received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Université Rennes 1, Rennes, France, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. He joined the Electronic Engineering Department of IMT Atlantique (formerly TELECOM Bretagne), Brest, France, as a full-Time Associate Professor in 2001. He was a visiting professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, during 10 months (Sept. 2006 - June 2007). In 2009, he received Research Habilitation from University of Bretagne Sud, Lorient, France. Then, he joined the graduate engineering school ENSEIRB-MATMECA, Bordeaux, France, as a full-Time Professor in 2010. Currently, he is member of the CNRS IMS laboratory, UMR 5218. His research activities are concerned with analysis and design of architectures for iterative processing in the digital communication systems.

Université de Liège
Abstract: Energy harvesting is booming since the number of electronic systems is continuously growing – particularly with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) – and also because electronic systems become more and more efficient. This presentation focuses on small energy harvesters (EH) providing either dc or ac voltages. The first part deals with physical principles. The second part consists in an overview of the main energy harvesters (photovoltaic, piezoelectric, electromagnetic, thermoelectric,…). The last part introduces shortly the concept of Power Management.
Philippe Laurent was graduated from the University of Liège (Belgium) in 2002 as an electromechanical engineer. From 2002 to 2008, he did his PhD on measurement and instrumentation, focusing on thermal effects in superconductors. During the same period, he was Teaching Assistant in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Liège, Belgium. In 2006, he was the recipient of a 4 months scholarship at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. After his thesis, he worked as Materials and Process Engineer in aeronautics at Safran Aero Booster. In 2010, he returned to the University of Liège as a research engineer at the Microsys Lab. In March 2016, he was part of the team won the $1 million prize for the Little Box Challenge, an engineering competition run by Google and the IEEE's Power Electronics Society. In June 2016, he won first prize at the 5G World 2016 Innovation Accelerator (London). Currently, Philippe Laurent is doing research in Ultra-Low-Power IoT.
