The Department of Electronic Engineering’s academic forum in celebration of Tsinghua University’s 112th anniversary was held at the Tsinghua University Electronic Engineering Building from April 22nd to 23rd. Yu Wang, Director of the Department of Electronic Engineering, and Ji Wu, Vice Director of the Department of Electronic Engineering, were present and delivered speeches. Over twenty experts and scholars from sister universities and research institutions in China attended the forum and presented academic reports. They held profound discussions on academic research and cutting-edge issues in the fields of information and communication engineering, and electronic science and technology, committed to exploring the opportunities and challenges in the development of these disciplines in the new era.
Yu Wang delivering a speech
Yu Wang reflected on the history of the Department of Electronic Engineering and expressed what motivated the department to hold the academic forum as part of the university’s anniversary celebrations. Yu Wang stated that industrial development in various fields of electronic science and technology is currently constrained and limited by other countries. Overcoming technological bottlenecks has become an urgent issue for China's scientific and technological development. He articulated the hope that through the academic forum, leading scholars in China can actively exchange thoughts, gain inspiration, foster collaboration, and achieve more significant achievements for the country in electronic science and technology.
Ji Wu delivering a speech
Ji Wu conveyed that, in recent years, electronic information technology has been increasingly penetrating into various fields as it rapidly develops. As a basic discipline in engineering disciplines, electronic information technology has been intersecting extensively with a broad range of disciplines such as science, engineering, medicine, humanities, and management, and has become a crucial driving force for the development of many disciplines and industries. The forum served as a platform for in-depth learning and communication among faculty and students, providing significant support for information and communication engineering discipline development and the cultivation of high-level talents.
The academic forum in celebration of the 112th anniversary of the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University was organized by the Department of Electronic Engineering and was divided into two sub-forums based on disciplines: the Information and Communication Engineering Sub-Forum and the Electronic Science and Technology Sub-Forum. The core objective was to facilitate the exchange of innovative research achievements and to explore cutting-edge academic topics in the field of electronic information. The forum particularly focused on addressing the technological bottlenecks in China's scientific and technological development, in order to achieve integrative development of electronic science and technology in the modern era, thereby supporting the nation's strategy of innovation-driven development.
The Information and Communication Engineering Sub-Forum centered around comprehensive exchanges on important needs and key technologies in the field of information and communication engineering. Participating scholars and experts presented on topics such as the basic theory and latest technology research progress in 6G extreme connectivity; an integrated sensing, communication and computation wireless network for intelligent machines; research on acoustic feature-driven audio recognition technology; low-orbit communication satellites supporting direct connection with mobile phones and space-ground integration; standards and applications of immersive media coding technology; AI joint source-channel coding; the development of deterministic resilient networks; thoughts and practices on the future development of wireless communications; precision measurement technology and applications of spread spectrum signals; key technologies and applications of aviation information networks; and cooperative control theory of cluster systems and its application in aircraft clusters.
The Electronic Science and Technology Sub-Forum focused on discussing the trends and development directions of future electronic information technologies. Participating scholars and experts presented on various topics, including microdisplay devices and AR near-eye display optics; surface-enhanced Raman microfluidic chip technology and its biomedical applications; microwave chemistry principles and their applications; integrated sensing and communication in optical fibers, research on three-dimensional frequency-selective surfaces; power amplifier circuits for integrated suspended lines; strategic considerations on electronic materials and devices in China; preparation and application of ultra-low loss hollow-core anti-resonant fibers; and opportunities and challenges for the integrated development of electronic science and technology in the modern era.
