2018 Connecticut Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Consortium Outcomes Report

The 27th annual Connecticut Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Consortium (CMOC) Symposium was held on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at the University of New Haven’s Orange Campus. The symposium brought together professionals from industry and academia from the Northeast region and beyond for a lively exchange of ideas. Plenary and invited presentations by renowned experts provided an overview of the most recent scientific and commercial outlook in the field of quantum computing, future of microelectronics beyond the limits of currently prevalent siliconbased technology, as well as recent advances in neuromorphic computing, label-free biosensing, non-invasive cancer diagnostics, and drone-generated 3D image processing. Drs. Maria Gherasimova (Physics) and Stephen Grodizinsky (Emeritus, Computer and Electrical Engineering) served on the CMOC organizing committee. Posters Out of thirty-six posters, there were eight from the University of Bridgeport: 1. Jasem Almotiri, Khaled Elleithy and Abdelrahman Elleithy, MultiObject Evolutionary Adaptive Fuzzy Thresholding for Retinal Anatomical Structures Segmentation. 2. Remah Alshinina and Khaled Elleithy, A Highly Accurate Machine Learning Approach for Developing Wireless Sensor Network Middleware. 3. Wafa M. Elmannai and Khaled M. Elleithy, Development of Efficient and Accurate Obstacle Avoidance System to Guide the Visually Impaired with the Integration of Fuzzy Logic System in Static and Dynamic Environments. 4. Mohamed Mohamed and Khaled Elleithy, Electrical Vehicle Battery Change System. 5. Zakareya Lasefr and Khaled Elleithy, Enhanced Epilepsy Seizure Detection and Smart Phone APP for Monitoring Seizures Based on EEG Classification. 6. Majid Alshammari and Khaled Elleithy, Efficient Key Management Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks. 7. Susrutha Babu Sukhavasi, Suparshya Babu Sukhavasi and Khaled Elleithy, Regression Analysis of Power per Pixel and Evaluation of New WDR Technique for CMOS Image Sensors. 8. Eugene P. Gerety and Khaled M. Elleithy, High-Accuracy Decoding of Ultra HighDensity 2D Matrix Barcodes without Context Clues.
