The University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), Spain wishes to appoint 1 Post-Doctoral contract to work in the EU Project ENABLE-S3 during 24 months. The ENABLE-S3 Project (European Initiative to Enable Validation for Highly Automated Safe and Secure Systems, H2020-ECSEL-2015-2-IA-TWO-STAGE, Grant Agreement 692455) funded by the Horizon 2020 Program for the period 2016-2019, is dedicated to pave the way for accelerated application of highly automated and autonomous systems in the mobility domains automotive, aerospace, rail, maritime and health, through provision of highly effective test and validation methodology and platforms that will save significant fractions of field tests. Virtual testing and verification and coverage oriented test selection methods will enable certification of these systems with reasonable efforts and project results will be considered for standardization of such systems. In particular, this contract will deal with the development of digital integrated systems for space application in two areas: hyperspectral image compression and autonomous navigation systems based on image processing.

IUMA has recently obtained from the Dirección General de Investigación Científica y Técnica, Subdirección General de Fondos Europeos para la Investigación, Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (MINECO), a project to fostering the infrastructures and scientific-technical equipment, from the State Scientific Infrastructure and Equipment Subprogram. The project is entitled "Hyperspectral acquisition system of high spatial and spectral resolution images" (UNLP13-3E-2211), whose Principal Investigator is Gustavo Marrero Callicó. This project has been financed with FEDER funds and thanks to this project it has been possible to increase the laboratory equipment for the acquisition and processing of hyper-spectral images.
Last week IUMA signed an agreement of collaboration with the School of Aerospace Science and Technology from the Xidian University, China. Prof. Li and Prof. José F. López, both representing their respective institutions, signed this agreement which will involve exchange of researchers and students focused on investigations in the field of ICTs in general and space technology in particular.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Bormin Huang has joined the IUMA faculty as Research Professor. Prof. Huang received his M.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, in 1992, and his Ph.D. degree in the area of satellite remote sensing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998. He joined the Space Science and Engineering Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison, in 1998 and was awarded by Intel to establish the Intel Parallel Computing Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He served as Honorary International Chair Professor with the National Taipei University of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan and as an Overseas Chair Professor with Xidian University, Xi’an, China. He has been serving as Guest Professor of several universities in China. His research interests include remote sensing science and engineering, satellite data compression and communications, high-performance computing, and deep learning (DL). He has over 200 journal and conference publications.
