CEWIT Announces 2008 Int’l Conference on Cutting Edge Wireless & IT

The Center of Excellence in Wireless & Information Technology, CEWIT, announced today it will hold its 5th Annual Conference on October 16th, 2008.

Unlike previous conferences, which were well in advance of the CEWIT building opening, the 2008 conference will provide tours of the completed CEWIT building in the Stony Brook Research Park. To facilitate a global webcast, a first for CEWIT, the conference will be held at the Charles B. Wang Center on the campus of Stony Brook University.

CEWIT is a $250 million government, industry and academic partnership leading the next wave of the wireless and information technology revolutions. The conference will provide a platform for leading business and academic institutions to explore collaboratively new technologies and their business potential.

CEWIT held a Commercialization Conference earlier this year, which displayed 15 commercially viable technologies, developed at CEWIT, for high tech entrepreneurs. The 2008 International Conference on Cutting Edge Wireless & Information Technologies, however, will be broken into business and academic tracks, both of which will be archived and webcast, and will have far more exhibits from worldwide technology powerhouses. These tracks, and also a series of nationally recognized keynote speakers from such companies as Northrop Grumman, CA, Motorola, IBM and SAP will feature the latest wireless & information technology innovations all under one roof.

“CEWIT has been a great partnership for both Stony Brook and CA,” said Russ Artzt, Vice Chairman and Founder of CA and Chairperson of the CEWIT Advisory Board. “The CEWIT 2008 International Conference on Cutting Edge Wireless & Information Technologies demonstrates the organization’s commitment to creating the right partnerships, wireless and IT research, and industrial outreach. This is yet another step toward promoting the commercialization of technologies and keeping the region at the forefront in Wireless and Information Technology.”

“CEWIT’s yearly conference is garnering more and more worldwide attention and attracting presenters from both the business and academic communities. We are very proud to be providing a worldwide showcase for the latest wireless and IT innovation,” said Dr. Satya Sharma, CEWIT’s Center Director.


With over 70 associated faculty members, 190 PhD and 180 Master students engaged in active R&D laboratory space, Stony Brook's Center of Excellence in Wireless & Information Technology is a next generation research and educational facility. The CEWIT building, which opens this summer, will add 100 new labs designed for high tech Research and development. Long Island continues to emerge as a leading worldwide center for information technology in the U.S. and, to best capitalize on this advantage, spur economic growth, advance scientific research and develop the technologies of tomorrow, the Center of Excellence In Wireless and Information Technology was created in 2003. The Center’s vision is four-fold: become recognized as a world leader in wireless and IT, conduct first-class interdisciplinary research in the emerging, critical technologies of the information age, address the skilled technology worker shortage, and foster new enterprise development. The Center has obtained more than twelve patents in just the last two years. CEWIT is an unparalleled resource, advancing the science and technology underlying the next epoch of the information revolution.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
