Share

The 3rd Summer School of Antennas, Propagation, and RFID Applications was organized by the Romanian IEEE AP-S/RFID Jt Chapter.
The Summer School will be held at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca on September 21 - 23, 2021.


The 3rd Summer School of Antennas, Propagation, and RFID Applications was organized by the Romanian IEEE AP-S/RFID Jt Chapter.
The Summer School was held at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca on September 21 - 23, 2021.

Welcome messages were given by Prof. Florin-Ioan Oniga, Vice-Rector for research and digital infrastructure at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Prof. Tudor Palade, Head of the research center for radio communications, Assoc. prof. Grigore Stamatescu, Secretary of the IEEE Romania Section, and Prof. Razvan Tamas, Chair of the IEEE Romania Section - Antennas and Propagation Society / CRFID Joint Chapter.

The topics of the first and third days included:
- Antenna and radiowave propagation measurements,
- Massive MIMO structures for 5G applications,
- 3D television,
- Radiowave propagation through the atmosphere, 
- Antenna optimization by using genetic algorithms,  
- Radar image processing,
- Radar cross section,
- Antenna theory, 
- Wireless sensor networks,
- Radars for air surveillance,
- Radio surveillance of the space debris. 

The second day of the event included a visit and a hands-on workshop on satellite finding and tracking techniques at the Research and Training Laboratory on Space Science and Technology at Marisel, animated by Prof. Paul Dolea. An ad-hoc student competition was held, aiming to test the abilities to use different types of coordinates. A satellite finder was awarded to Mihai Hertz from Constanta Maritime University.

Twenty-three students (undergraduate and postgraduate) from the main technical universities in Romania attended the Summer School, as well as five engineers from different companies.

Two prizes were awarded to the students, co-sponsored by the IEEE AP-S, the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, and CDS - Control Data System Cluj-Napoca, owned and led by an A&P engineer, Ovidiu Ratiu.

  1. The "Costin Miron" prize was awarded to Stefan Vasile.
  2. The "Lelia Festila" prize was awarded to Ioana Lungu.

Attendance certificates were delivered to all participants.
