Into the MIST (Multi-functional Integrated System Technology): An NSF Industry-University Cooperative Research Center Webinar (2019)

November 7, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

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?

  • 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 parties such as those who are interested in alternate computing for machine learning/AI applications, thermal management, electronic, magnetic and photonic devices.

Webinar Overview

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


MIST Center Director

Avik Ghosh is an electrical and computer engineering and physics professor at the University of Virginia, as well as the director of the new UVA site for the MIST Center. He has over 100 refereed papers and book chapters and a book published from World Scientific in the areas of computational nano-electronics and low power devices, including 2D materials, molecular electronics, subthermal switching, nanomagnetic materials and devices, photodetector modeling, neuromorphic computing and nanoscale heat flow. Ghosh earned his doctorate in physics from the Ohio State University and did his postdoctoral fellowship in Electrical Engineering at Purdue University. He is a fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP), senior member of IEEE and has received the IBM Faculty Award, the NSF CAREER Award, a best paper award from the Army Research Office, the Charles Brown New Faculty Teaching Award and UVA’s All University Teaching Award. His group’s research on observing negative index behavior in graphene was voted by Physics World as one of the top-10 breakthroughs of 2016.

MIST Center Coordinator

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.
