Webinar event in Collaboration with Belarus State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (bsuir) and Comsats Institute of Information Technology (CIIT)
  Monday, February 20, 2017 CIIT
Kamran Lashari,

A successful webinar event was held on February 15, 2017 between Belarus State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) and COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) on the topic “Simulating the optimization of energy consumption in homes.” Heading the webinar from BSUIR was Victor R. Stempitsky,Head of CAD Laboratory, Department of Micro and Nanoelectronics, while on CIIT side it was facilitated by Dr. Nadeem Javaid, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science and Ms. Zainab Ali from International Office. Graduate students from both electrical engineering and computer science department were at the learning end who listened to the presentation by Professor Viktor on a mutually agreed topic. A brief presentation was shared over the webinar to help explain the subject matter with advancements at BSUIR and CIIT which was followed by a brief question answer session from students.

The advantages of hosting this webinar were numerous and one of the most important ones was the exchange of information and knowledge sharing to a wide spread audience over a video conference call which is the most d and cost effective way of knowledge exchange. This webinar was very beneficial for CIIT professionals and students who benefited from the expertise at BSUIR.

He holds the largest number of patents in the field of nano silicon worldwide including 19 issued US and European patents, along with four pending US patents. Dr. Nayfeh has developed an active experimental program to study the multi-photon (nonlinear) dissociation of molecules to enhance dissociation selectivity. He was the first to demonstrate isotope separation using this process. He was also the first physicist to examine the behavior of hydrogen molecules in intense laser fields, and his seminal work in this area initiated a completely new area of research in molecular Coulomb explosions.

2. Dr. Irfan Ahmad is Executive Director at the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, Resident Faculty at the Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, and Research Faculty at the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He also is co-Site/Innovation Director for the National Science Foundation-funded Industry/University Cooperative Research Center- the Center for Advanced Research in Drying; he also is Core Faculty at the Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. He is included among the top 14 well known Nanotechnologists in the Muslim world. (http://muslim-science.com/14-most-exciting-nanotechnologists-from-the-muslim-world/). As an entrepreneur,Dr. Ahmad was involved with IT24, an information technology company, and Buruj, a sensors development startup. His recent entrepreneurial endeavor is- Avicenna Community Health Center, which takes a systems approach to healthcare delivery through an integrated preventive and curative healthcare.

3. Dr. Aydogan is an Associate Professor and Director of Medical Physics at the University of Chicago Pritzker School Of Medicine. He also is Affiliated Faculty and Chief of Medical Physics at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has expertise in medical physics and cancer research and treatments. His research specifically relates to computational simulation of radiation damage in human body down to DNA level, tumor tracking and targeting in real-time. This includes development of theranostic and personalized cancer treatment techniques, development and implementation of Total Marrow Irradiation techniques for the treatment of advanced hematological malignancies in adult and pediatric patients, bone marrow sparing IMRT in malignancies contained in pelvic region, development of localization and immobilization techniques, image guided brachytherapy applications in GYN cancers, and measurement and characterization of 3D dynamic therapy dose distribution. He has dedicated his career to improve the quality of cancer care. Currently, Dr. Aydogan has three active clinical trials including "Intensity Modulated Total Marrow Irradiation (IM-TMI) for Advanced Hematologic Malignancies," as well as two multi institutional Phase II studies under IRB review based on the encouraging results obtained with his previous clinical studies that were recently completed. His patented work on AuNP-DG, a targeted nanogold contrast agent for theranostic cancer applications is currently in the animal experiments phase.

Kamran Lashari,

CIIT hosted the World Learning(WL) Head, Ms. Nadya Karim Shaw, on 12th Jan, 2017 for a meeting with the senior management of CIIT. Head WL was accompanied by CEO of TeleTaleem, Mr. Asad Karim and Mr.Imdad Ali, Program Coordinator at WL. World Learning is a US based education and training company with a mission to empower people and strengthen institutions through education, sustainable development, and exchange programs. It is working to develop mutually beneficial partnerships that focus on partners’ philanthropic and developmental priorities.

The guests were welcomed by officials from the International Office and were escorted to the meeting venue. The meeting was attended by Dr. Raheel Qamar, Incharge Islamabad Campus, Dr. Malik, Head International Office, Dr. Bilal Zaka, Head IT Office, Ms. Rubina Bhatti, Deputy Director PD & HRD and Ms. Ayesha Masood. The discussion during the meeting suggested that WL in coordination with HEC and other major universities of Pakistan, particularly AIOU, would come up with a proposal for the ‘Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education Innovation and Reform’(SPHEIR) project to offer E- learning based courses for the existing education programs. WL intends to create quality courseware following the latest instructional designs with the involvement of its UK partner, Open University (OU UK).

As CIIT has a Virtual Campus, thereforeit can usefully share its experiences in course development and can suggest appropriate courses that are either part of a regular degree program or independent training modules for skills development. The courses need to be selected considering their widespread usability, scalability and positive impact on employability of the beneficiaries.

The meeting was rounded-off with an agreement to follow up from both sides on the decided points. CIIT souvenirs were presented to the guests. They were seen off with words of thanks and a group photo outside Faculty Block 1.
