British Columbia Institute of Technology, Canada
Title of the Talk - “Software Defined Networking”: History, Technology, challenges and overview of routing algorithms for core and metro transport.
Abstract – Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.

Title of the Talk - Internet of Embedded Things
Abstract – Embedded systems are being used in all walks of life and are helping make this world a smarter, greener, and safer. There is great interest in monitoring these systems as well as control them through the Internet. In this talk, we will look at what constitutes the “Internet of Things” from the viewpoint of hardware and software components. In this talk, we will discuss how this emerging area can be an excellent opportunity for Indian entrepreneurs and developers. The talk will also address how Indian Universities can use this opportunity to carry out R&D for an emerging area.

Title of the Talk - Photonic Processing in Optical Amplifiers
Abstract –In the future, electronic circuits are expected to be strain the barriers of high speed and complexity. All-optical signal processing is an answer with which accommodate the increasing demand of data transfer and other important operations such as switching, signal regeneration, single bit pattern recognition, clock recovery, addressing, header recognition, data encoding/encryption, and so on. All optical processing also shows a better performance in core optical networks and omits the requirement for complex and expensive optoelectronic conversion. The semiconductor optical amplifier is the best choice to implement the logical circuits because of its nonlinear characteristics, simplicity, stability, compact size, and compatibility with different modulation formats even at high bias currents. Moreover, the optical amplifiers are not only used for logical operation, it can also be used in long haul communication system to boost the signals. Also, currently used hybrid optical amplifier is an enabling and promising technique for future DWDM multi-terabit systems to minimize the impairments due to fiber nonlinearities and to enhance the gain bandwidth and/or gain flatness. So there is great demand of optical amplifiers in optical communication system to full fill the various related operations.

Title of the Talk - Free Space Optical Communication
Abstract –The year 2015 is being celebrated as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). The celebration of IYL 2015 is to raise awareness of how optical technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to worldwide challenges in; energy, education, agriculture, communications and health. The talk will be focused on the evolution of optical communication, optical communication system concept and details, challenges & constraints in optical communication and research opportunities this area offers.

Title of the Talk - Analysis prospective of RF heating effects on human tissue
Abstract –The effect of radio frequencies on human brain can be analyzed by modeling a head model. The heating effect of RF has two faces, one face in favor of human being and other against the health. The power absorbed and rise in temperature of various tissues of head will be discussed. In determining the temperature rise the effect of blood flow and transfer of heat from tissue into space can be taken into account.
