Multi-functional Integrated System Technology (MIST): An NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center Webinar

August 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Emerging trends in IoT involve integrating sensors, wireless, power, and computing at the MIST computing node towards low-latency, adaptive, and decentralized sensor networks to support the scale-up of smart, interconnected systems.

MIST’s unique research portfolio comprises numerous technical experts in a wide range of technology fields ranging from novel materials and processing technologies to devices/transducers, packaging, and multi-physics modeling.

Learn more about MIST’s current and past research projects.

About MIST

The MIST Center’s mission is to facilitate the integration of novel materials, processes, and devices and circuits into multi-functional systems and tools needed for future mist computing nodes.  In partnership with member companies and agencies, we are innovating more than Moore technologies for smart systems in the Internet of Things era.

Who Should Participate?

Representatives from

  • Technologists and leaders at companies and government agencies who are interested in joining like-minded engineers and professionals who share a common need and vision to scout, evaluate, and internalize promising emerging technologies for smart systems for Internet of Things.
  • Other interested parties

Webinar Overview

This webinar will provide insight into MIST’s operations, funding, intellectual property, project selection and management.


Toshikazu Nishida, MIST Center Director, is Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida. He also holds an affiliate appointment in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.  His research interests include high performance multifunctional semiconductor devices and systems, low power ferroelectric memory and device technologies, and novel three-dimensional fabrication.

David Arnold, MIST Center UF Deputy Director, is the George Kirkland Engineering Leadership professor in the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Florida, as well as the director of the Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group (IMG). He also holds an affiliate appointment in the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering. His research interests focus on magnetic thin/thick films and magnetic micro/nanostructures; magnetic microsystems and electromechanical transducers; and compact (<100 W) power/energy systems.

Shelby Powell, MIST Center Coordinator, joined the MIST Center in March 2016 and serves each of the center’s three sites. He has extensive marketing and project management experience, and has created and managed communications campaigns nationally. He has a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the University of Florida.
