Outreach activity 21st May 2021

In celebration of the International Day of Light Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies at Aston University, OSA/SPIE Aston University Student Chapter, MSCA Projects MULTIPLY, REAL-NET, MOCCA, MEFISTA, POST-DIGITAL, WON, FONTE, MENTOR, MONPLAS, and projects SMARTNET, PIXNET have organised a one-day summit on 21st of May 2021. This was an academic and social event, aiming to insight our collaboration, academic creativity, and motivation.

TWO REAL-NET ESRs gave their talks on recent research activities. Mohammad Hosseini (ESR1) spoke about “Cost-efficient Networking” and Pedro J. Freire (ESR2) spoke about “Neural Network Application in Optical Channel Equalization”.

More details about the event.

Outreach activity 16th May 2021

The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light will allow many different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrates how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.

Read the brochure dedicated to IDL2021, where REAL-NET researchers describe how the projects relate to the concept of “light”.



Outreach activity 17th November 2020

Pedro J. Freire (ESR2) presented his research on ” Complex-Valued Neural Network Design for Mitigation of Signal Distortions in Optical Links in Highly Nonlinear Regimes” at @aston_osa_spie.


Outreach activity 21st May 2020

Mohammad (ESR1) and Diogo (ESR6) participated at the Outreach event on the 21st May 2020, where they shared their PhD experience with MSc students.

The event, held virtually due to the COVID-19 restrictions, has been jointly organised by ITNs ONFIRE (@h2020_onfire), REAL-NET (@REALNET_EID) and WON (@EtnWon) and co-located within the IEEE 24th International Conference on Optical Networks Design and Modelling (ONDM 2020).

Outreach activity 24th February 2020

Project Mangers leads Outreach Activity aiming at ERASMUS Mundus students.

On 24 Feb 2020 Christiane,Project Manger of FONTE-EID, Martina, Project Manager of REAL-NET and Felicita, Project Manager of MOCCA, lead an Outreach Activity aimed at student in two photonics-related ERASMUS MUNDUS JOINT MASTERS DEGREE (EMJMD) programmes:
    SMARTNET, coordinated by Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AiPT) at Aston University, is a collaborative two-year (120 ECTs) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees programme with the goal to provide training in the inter-disciplinary fields of photonic and 5G wireless technologies for data communication, sensing and big data processing.
    PIXNET – The Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks – is also a two-year programme (120 ECTS) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree and aimed at training talented students in the design, creation and assessment of innovative integrated devices based on photonic technologies, with Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AiPT) at Aston University a partner in the consortium.
