- Prof. Andrea Massa: Unconventional Array Design - Fundamental and Advances
- Antenna arrays are a key-technology in several Electromagnetics applicative scenarios, including satellite and ground wireless communications, MIMO systems, remote sensing, biomedical imaging, radar, and radio-astronomy. Because of their wide range of application, the large number of degrees of freedom at hand (e.g., type, position, and excitation of each radiating element), the available architectures (fully populated, thinned, clustered, etc.), and the possible objectives (maximum directivity, minimum sidelobes, maximum beam efficiency, etc.), the synthesis of arrays turns out to be a complex task which cannot be tackled by a single methodology.
Despite this wide heterogeneity, most of the synthesis approaches share a common theoretical framework which is of paramount importance for all engineers and students interested in such a topic. Moreover, this is also true for innovative methodologies aimed at the design of "unconventional arrays" (i.e., based sparse, thinned, conformal, clustered, overlapped, interleaved architectures, both in the frequency and in the time domain), which are currently receiving a great attention from the academic and industrial viewpoint.
The objective of the talk is therefore firstly to provide the attendees the fundamentals of Antenna Array synthesis, starting from intuitive explanations to rigorous mathematical and methodological insights about their behavior and design. Recent synthesis methodologies aimed at "unconventional architectures" (i.e., architectures close to the real-applications and operative non-ideal constraints/guidelines) will be then discussed in detail, with particular emphasis on innovative layouts for very large arrays.

- Piano concert - Egle Uljas
Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
Franz Schubert: Piano Sonata in A Minor, D.784
Eduard Tubin: Suite on Estonian Shepherd Melodies
Egle Uljas was born in Tallinn, Estonia. She entered Tallinn Music High-School when she was four years old. She has studied under the guidance of Reet Ruubel and later with Alexandra Juozepenaite-Eesmaa at the Estonian Music Academy. She received several top three places at the Estonian Young Pianist's Competitions during her studies. In 2004, she was selected to play at the graduation concert Ravel's Piano Concerto in G-Major in Estonian Concert Hall with Tallinn Music High School orchestra. Later, with the same concerto she became the Winner of the Concerto Competition in Lincoln, Nebraska. She was also one of the pianists selected to play at the Liszt Society Concert in Lincoln, Nebraska. Shortly after entering Estonian Music Academy, she was recruited as an Olympic Athlete to the United States. She is the Estonian Record Holder in 400m-s as well as in i800m, i1000m, i600m, i600m yards and so on. She studied piano performance at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the guidance of Paul Barnes (a student of Menahem Pressler) and later at Baylor University under the guidance of Krassimira Jordan (a student of Emil Gilels and Stanislav Neuhaus). She received financial donations from the legendary Van Cliburn for the final year of her studies. She has attended several master classes in Europe as well as in the United States. She has given concerts in Tallinn, Prague, Houston, New York, Yekaterinburg, etc. In US, she appeared as a piano accompanist as well as an organist. She was appointed as an Assistant for the legendary organist Joyce Jones, but after her graduation she decided to continue her career in Europe. During her studies with Joyce Jones, she worked as the main organist at the St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Waco, Texas. In 2012, She attended an internship at HAMU (Music Academy in Prague) under the guidance of Martin Kasik.
- Track on Middleware and Enterprise Application Software (MEAS)
- The objective of MEAS track is to provide researchers and software architects the opportunity to present their observations, experiences and research in the area of production-level enterprise applications. The aim of integrate academic research and industry level research, introduce the best practices, state of the art and mostly production level experience impacting the development, design, maintenance, scalability and other software quality attributes.
