Dr. Ned Mohan
Oscar A. Schott Professor of Power Electronic Systems
and Morse-Alumni Distinguished Professor
University of Minnesota

Dr. Ned Mohan: Ned Mohan (LF-IEEE) joined the University of Minnesota in 1975, where he is Oscar A. Schott Professor of Power Electronic Systems and Morse-Alumni Distinguished Professor. He received his Bachelor's degree from the Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur in 1967. His PhD in Electrical Engineering and Master's in Nuclear Engineering are from UW-Madison. He has written six textbooks; all together, they have been translated into nine languages. He has graduated fifty PhDs. His area of research is in power electronics applied to power systems and he holds several patents.
Ned Mohan received the H.T. Morse Distinguished Teaching Award for undergraduate education from the University of Minnesota in 2007. He has received 2008 IEEE-PES Outstanding Educator Award, 2010 IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award, 2010 UWIG Achievement Award from Utility Wind Integration Group, 2011 Distinguished Alumnus Award from IIT-Kharagpur (India), and 2012 IEEE Power & Energy Society Ramakumar Family Renewable Energy Excellence Award. In 2013, he received the Innovative Program Award from the ECE Department Heads Association made up of over 250 U.S. universities. In 2014, he received the Distinguished Graduate Teaching Award from the University of Minnesota and the IEEE Nari Hingorani FACTS Award from the IEEE Power & Energy Society.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Regents Professor and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Power Engineering Education in the Age of Climate Crisis – A Holistic View
Climate change is the gravest threat facing humanity. Power engineering and its education have an important role to at least delay, if not avert, the catastrophes ahead. However, as reported by ASEE, in the EE part of ECE, student enrollments are declining nationwide just when we need them the most.
Most young people are now very much aware of climate change and its consequences, and thus it is a great opportunity to create a pipeline of young students to recruit them into power engineering to pursue their undergraduate and graduate studies. This would require a holistic view where we integrate power systems that is needed for the delivery of power, power electronics that is ubiquitous and is used in all aspect of energy generation, transmission and end-use, and electric machines that are the primary users of electricity specially if we are to transfer as much of energy use to electricity and generate that by renewables.
This presentation will present one view of doing such integration mentioned above and how can it be done in a collaborative manner using the educational technologies on hand.

Madjid Fathi
Professor and Head of KBS
University of Siegen, Germany

Madjid Fathi is a professor and Head of KBS & KM (Knowledge Based System & Knowledge Management) institute at the EECS Department at the University of Siegen, Germany. He obtained his M.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Ph.D. degree (Dr.-Ing.) both from the University of Dortmund, Germany, in 1986 and 1991, respectively. Accordingly, he obtained Habilitation degree (Post-Doctorate) at the University of Ilmenau, Germany, in 1998. Before he got the Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Siegen he was visiting scholar at Florida State University and from 2003 at LMM (Lab for Micromechanics - Prof. Garmestani) Georgia Institute of Technology.
Since 2004, he is in Siegen. He was Visiting Scholar with Professor Zadeh father of Fuzzy Logic at U.C. Berkeley dept. of EECS joined the BISC (Berkeley Initiative of Soft Computing) from Sep/2012 to Sept/2013. As head of KBS he leads a large academic team of researchers and educators which has, thus far, resulted in over 90 theses. His research interests are focused on AI, Knowledge Based Systems (KBS), knowledge management and their applications in medicine and engineering, knowledge transfer, organizational learning, and knowledge discovery from text (KDT).
He is the editor of "Integration of Practice-Oriented Knowledge Technology" (2013) and "Integrated Systems, Design and Technology" (2011) published by Springer, as well as three text books (the last one has been published in October 2019 with the title: Computer-Aided Writing by Springer) and five edited books. He, with his students, has published with more than 270 publications including 30 Journal publications, and obtained four paper awards. He got the European Award Cut-e prize 2015. He is a senior member of IEEE as well as member of editorial board of five respective journals. He is the founder of Alzheimer Knowledge Platform.

From Documents to Knowledge Graph – New Avenues for Document Driven Knowledge Graph Construction
Knowledge Graph is a powerful tool for knowledge management, search, and information retrieval from structured and unstructured data. In industrial applications, this requires technological progress on the one side, and the skills of integration processes of document content from different areas on the other side. In addition to the content to be retrieved automatically from databases, human experience from employees, in the form of lessons learned, must also be considered. The handling of different data types, the possibility of storing larger capacities of data in the graph must be ensured and, above all, the representation of the document contents must occur in a suitable form. For the knowledge representation of knowledge graphs, the Multidimensional Knowledge Representation (MKR) technique can be used as a tool to integrate text analysis results into the knowledge graph. This approach will be presented in the talk together with other document-centric variants of knowledge graph construction and explained on the basis of different projects.

Vitaly Herasevich
Professor of Anesthesiology and Medicine
Mayo Clinic

Vitaly Herasevich, MD, PhD, MSc is a Professor of Anesthesiology and Medicine in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Division of Critical Care, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. He has been involved in medical informatics for over 20 years, with a specific concentration on applied clinical informatics in critical care and perioperative environment.
Dr. Herasevich codirects the Clinical Informatics in Intensive Care laboratory that works to decrease complications and improve outcomes for critically ill patients through applied clinical informatics and quality improvement. He is interested in studying and developing clinical syndromic surveillance alerting systems ("sniffers"), clinical data visualization (novel patient-centered EMR), and health care predictive and prescriptive ambient intelligence. He is co-inventor of number of technologies including AWARE platform. Dr. Herasevich has coauthored over 100 articles and book Health Information Evaluation Handbook (now in second edition). He is Senior Member at IEEE, Fellow of Society of Critical Care Medicine and American Medical Informatics Association active within professional societies and served SCCM Tele-ICU committee as chair.
