    IEEE Lebanon Communications Student Competition is a competition among senior projects (graduation projects, capstone projects, or final year projects) from different universities in Lebanon on topics that have a communications component including wired and wireless communications, mobile apps, mobile networks, peer to peer and social networks, communications and network security, and related areas.
    The First LCSC, IEEE LCSC’11 took place in June 2011 at NDU; it attracted around 100 attendees; it included a plenary talk on entrepreneurship and presentations/demos by 20 competing student projects. The second LCSC, IEEE LCSC’12 took place at AUB in June 2012 and attracted around 150 attendees and more than 30 competing student projects. Last year IEEE LCSC’13 took place at LAU, Byblos Campus in June 2013 and also I was very successful. We received around 150 attendees and more than 30 competing student projects. In all these three years, the winning teams received certificates and valuable prizes.

    The IEEE Lebanon Communications Research Day (LCRD’13) will take place on Saturday June 1, 2013 9:00-14:30 at the American University of Science and Technology AUST, Achrafiyeh. The goal of IEEE LCRD’13 is to allow Lebanese researchers that work in the area of communications and networking to meet together, present their work and exchange research ideas. The event will feature a plenary session with highly distinguished speakers: Dr. Mohamed Khalil from the Lebanese University, Dr. Rola Naja from the Beirut Arab University and Dr. Youssef Nasser from the American University of Beirut.

    Abstract:
    Countries continue to face the major challenge of economically supporting their welfare systems, particularly medical/health benefits. Without novel solutions to reduce the cost of conventional systems such as cost of hospitalization and specialized institutions, existing welfare systems of many countries will collapse. Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) have been recognized as an important part of the solution to create new cost-effective solutions to reduce the cost of healthcare. (U) Health Smart Home, a home equipped with ICT to support people directly in their home, has been identified by governments and medical institutions, as an important step towards financial savings, as well as a technologically and socially acceptable solution to maintain the current health welfare system. The aim ICT for Ubiquitous Health smart home is to introduce new technological solutions to allow elderly and disabled persons to continue to live a more independent life as long as possible while receiving the required medical and safety assistance. Autonomic systems can be developed to monitor patients’ health status and detect as early as possible any anomaly take appropriate actions. With the help of the U-Health smart home, doctors, nurses and other health-related personnel do not need to be continuously next to the patients and therefore could manage several patients at the same time. This approach will not only reduce the load in hospitals and specialized institutions while continuing to provide a high quality tele-health to patients whenever required but also make viable the possible business models. This presentation aims to highlight the tremendous advances in low-power electronics, nano/bio sensor technologies, wired and wireless network technologies, Information Systems, Decision-making systems, etc and how these technologies will facilitate the introduction and acceptance of (U) and (T) health solutions in our societies.

    Abstract:
    This seminar will cover the strategic and financial considerations for rolling-out new technologies for the last-mile: LTE for the wireless access and FTTH for the fixed access. Both technologies have been introduced, standardized, tested and rolled-out in limited quantities in mature markets, with emerging markets still considering the technico-economic feasibility.
    In all cases, understanding the financial implications (on Operational Costs, Capital Expenditures and Revenue Generation) is of primary importance to network operators, regulators and governments. Moreover, the existence of legacy technologies poses a dilemma when considering swapping old equipment, upgrading existing networks and the availability of terminals at mass market prices.
    All those aspects are related to strategy making and will be introduced in this lecture, starting with the basic building blocks of financial models for LTE and FTTH, derivation of key indicators for strategy setting and decision making, typical benchmarks from leading network operators and strategic considerations such as competitive analysis, evolving market dynamics, segmentation, operational capabilities and Innovation potential.
