7th International Conference on Imaging for Crime Detection and Prevention (ICDP 2016)

This conference brings together researchers, industry, end-users, law-enforcing agencies and citizens groups to share experiences and explore areas where additional research, development and better working practices are needed, identify possible collaboration and consider the societal impact of such technologies. ICDP (and its predecessor IDSS) has traditionally been a special meeting point of different disciplines (computer science, social science, engineering, management, etc.) and an opportunity for a wide range of stakeholders to discuss the many different aspects of the application of imaging technologies in this socially crucial domain.

Two Madrid universities (Carlos III and UPM) and the EU LASIE project co-sponsored by the IET, IEEE (UK and Ireland Social Implications of Technology Chapter, plus AES10, CAS04 and SC28 from the Spain Section), the BMVA, Queen Mary University of London and University College London are working together to organize this well-known event.

Madrid, November 23-25th 2016


7th International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN 2016)

Locating devices in indoor environments has become a key issue for many emerging location‐based applications (LBA) in different fields. However, contrary to what usually happens outdoors with well‐developed GNSS technology, nowadays there is no overall and easy solution. Despite a large‐scale deployment of such location systems is not available yet, this strategic topic is called to lead technological innovations of great impact on the daily activities of people in the coming years, in areas such as health and independent living, leisure, security, etc. Since the first edition, IPIN 2010, held in Zurich (Switzerland), this conference has been an excellent forum to bring together researchers, developers and service providers in positioning and indoor navigation. The 2016 edition will be held in the University of Alcalá, Spain.


Start: October 4, 2016

End: October 7, 2016

La Rama de Estudiantes del IEEE de la Universidad de Vigo participa en la organización de la II Competición de Robots

La Escuela de Ingeniería Industrial de la Universidad de Vigo en colaboración con la Rama de Estudiantes del IEEE ha organizado el pasado viernes 29 de abril la II Competición de Robots. Esta segunda edición constituye una prueba puntuable dentro de la Liga Nacional de Robótica de Competición (LNRC).

En esta edición, han participado más de 900 estudiantes procedentes de 40 centros educativos de toda Galicia. 156 equipos han participado en la categoría WALL-E, dirigida a estudiantes de la ESO y de Bachillerato y otros 15 en la categoría R2D2 dirigida a estudiantes universitarios y de Formación Profesional. Dentro de cada categoría, los estudiantes se enfrentaron a la prueba de rastreo individual y de sumo.

En la categoría de WALL-E para estudiantes de 1º a 3º de la ESO resultó ganador el IES Pedras Rubias de Salceda de Caselas, para estudiantes de 4º de la ESO resultó de nuevo ganador el IES Pedras Rubias de Salceda de Caselas. En el caso de estudiantes de Bachillerato, el primer premio se lo llevó el IES Frei Martín Sarmiento de Pontevedra.

En la categoría de R2D2, resultó ganador APT GET Grupo, del Colegio La Paz de A Coruña, el segundo premio lo recibieron Os Tumbafentos, de la Escuela de Ingeniería Industrial de la Universidad de Vigo y el tercero lo recibió el Colegio Montecastelo de Vigo. Cada uno de ellos obtuvo 100, 75 y 50 puntos, respectivamente, para su clasificación en la Liga Nacional de Robótica de Competición.

Por último, también se entregó un premio al robot más original. En este caso, el premio lo compartieron el IES Auga da Laxe de Gondomar y el IES Canido de Ferrol.
