Chen, Blunt Chair International Events


By Michelle Ward

Xue-wen Chen serves as the conference chair for the IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics & Biomedicine to be held in November. The multidisciplinary conference brings together academic and industrial scientists from computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics and statistics. It will provide a platform to discuss issues and present research.

Chen, the director of ITTCs Bioinformatics and Computational Life-Sciences Lab, is co-chair with Sun Kim, an associate professor at Indiana University and bioinformatics program director.

ITTC investigator Shannon Blunt served as the vice chair of the 2009 International Waveform Diversity & Design Conference. The February conference in Orlando, Florida, brought together researchers from diverse backgrounds to facilitate the exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas and research. Recent advances in hardware technology are enabling a much wider range of designs to be explored for sensor and communication systems. The conference examined the emerging and compelling changes in system requirements such as more efficient spectrum usage, higher sensitivities, greater information content, transmitter/receiver agility, and improved robustness to errors

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
