PHILADELPHIA -– Two faculty members from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science will be participating in the 17th annual Frontiers of Engineering Symposium in September. The exclusive meeting is held by the National Academy of Engineering and will take place at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.
PHILADELPHIA – MAGPI, the University of Pennsylvania's Internet2 hub, is bringing advanced networking connectivity to the 2011 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia June 26-29.
Ritesh Agarwal of the School of Engineering and Applied Science is cited for his research.
PHILADELPHIA -- Following this week’s release of the Office of the Executive’s “A Policy Framework for the 21st Century Grid,” Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, willaddress Urban Smart Grid and Energy Innovation, a conference organized by the Penn Institute for Urban Research (Penn IUR) at 6 p.m. today, June 14.
PHILADELPHIA—New engineering research at the University of Pennsylvania demonstrates that polaritons have increased coupling strength when confined to nanoscale semiconductors. This represents a promising advance in the field of photonics: smaller and faster circuits that use light rather than electricity.
PHILADELPHIA — Alexandre Scialom, creator of theCourseBook, has won $50,000 in the only business plan competition designed to use innovation to improve education.
PHILADELPHIA -- Two University of Pennsylvania engineers have proposed the possibility of two-dimensional metamaterials. These one-atom-thick metamaterials could be achieved by controlling the conductivity of sheets of graphene, which is a single layer of carbon atoms.
PHILADELPHIA — The University of Pennsylvania is accepting applications for its Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
