5G Electromagnetic Fields: exposure levels and safety standards


The presentation will provide a brief introduction to 5G and what it means for electromagnetic (EMF) exposure based on the results of assessments of 5G networks (commercial and pilot) conducted in Australia and overseas.  The international EMF exposure guidelines were updated in March 2020 and one of the major changes was to provide more detailed guidance for frequencies above 6 GHz. Independent public health agencies say that no health risks are expected for 5G but myths and misinformation continue to be spread on social media, including suggestions of a link between wireless technologies and COVID-19. Pointers will be provided to reliable sources of information.

IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) Student Poster Competition

The deadline for submitting an abstract for the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) Student Poster Competition is October 2, 2020. Students are invited to send ideas or designs for developing projects/products supporting the Key focus areas of GHTC 2020 including (but are not limited to): Affordable & Clean Energy Agriculture & Food Security Clean Water & Sanitation Connectivity & Communication in Support of Development Good Health and Well Being Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response & Recovery Quality Education Other Related United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Action plans are now in place to support a Hybrid Conference (combining both physical and virtual participation) should the impact of COVID-19 prevent some presenters and delegates travelling to attend the conference.   Contest:  https://ieeeghtc.org/2020/ghtc-2020-student-poster-contest/     For additional information please contact Mostafa Mortezaie: mortezaie@ieee.org Download event flyer: IEEE Flyer_Student_Poster_GHTC-2020  

IEEE CITISIA 2020 conference

Charles Sturt University Sydney Campus

The “Conference on Innovative Technologies in Intelligent Systems & Industrial Applications” (CITISIA) is a student conference that aims to provide students of higher learning institutions with a platform for presenting their own projects. It is also a measure of recognition of students’ professional and technical achievements – by industries and international organizations such as IEEE. This conference is designed to facilitate exchanges of ideas through communication, networking, and learning from others, for students and IEEE Chapters in terms of greater collaboration.
