Wednesday 5th April 2017 at Pan-European University, FI PEU - room Aula Magna
10:30 Registration open
11:00 – 12:30 WG meeting 1 / Scientific planning & management session
12:30 – 13:30 Lunch Break
13:30 – 14:50 Training school session #1Evolutionary Optimization in Electromagnetics
          Dr. Petr Kadlec, Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic15:00 – 16:30 Training school session #2 – Stochastic Electromagnetic Fields
          Abstract:  The lecture will cover both single-objective and multi-objective optimization fundamentals. The formulation of an optimization task will be demonstrated on problems from computational electromagnetics. FOPS (Fast Optimization Procedures: software will be available for demonstration purposes.
15:00 – 16:30 Training school session #2 – Stochastic Electromagnetic Fields
          Dr. Johannes Russer, Technical University of Munich, Germany
          Abstract:  Accurate characterization and modeling of noisy electromagnetic fields is important to protect electronic devices and systems from critical levels of electromagnetic interference. Stochastic electromagnetic fields can be described by consideration of the field auto and cross-correlations. Characterization techniques for stationary stochastic electromagnetic fields originating from noise sources with Gaussian probability distribution and for cyclostationary problems, as encountered frequently in high speed digital circuits, is discussed in this tutorial.
16:30 – 17:00 Coffee break
17:00 – 18:00 WG meeting 2 /  Disc ssion on Measurement Input & Output Data. Conclusion

20:00 Dinner Downtown

Thursday 6th April 2017 at Slovak University of Technology, FEI STU  - room B704 Combined with International Seminar on Mobile Communications
10:30 – 11:30 Training school session #3 / Seminar Lecture 1 - 5G myths and realities
          Dr. Matus Turcsany from Ericsson Slovakia Note: This relates most to the IC1407 standardisation WG.
          Abstract:  Traditional techniques for characterizing the electromagnetic spectrum assume it is composed of stationary waves with constant and measurable phase. Due to the time dependent nature of intentional and unintentional emissions from modern digital electronics and communications, ambient electromagnetic fields often do not exhibit a stationary phase. A new approach and new standards are needed to quantify these fields which essentially behave in a stochastic way. This talk will outline the work undertaken by IC COST 1407 “ACCREDIT” to address this problem.
11:30 – 13:00 Training school session #4 / Seminar Lecture 2 - Guide for Near-field Characterization of Unintentional Stochastic Radiators
          Prof. Dave Thomas, University of Nottingham, UK
          Abstract:  In the talk we will discuss the drivers and expectations behind 5G. We will also touch the economics of the mobile industry, the role of LTE in the 5G ecosystem and talk about the different approaches the operators are taking to introduce 5G with a special attention to the comparison of Europe versus rest of the world.
13:30 – 15:00 WG meeting 3, Lunch Break, networking and informal discussions (Bratislava Downtown)
15:00 Closing
