Welcome to the ELIS website.
ELIS, the Electronics and Information Systems department, is one of the largest departments of the Faculty of Engineering at Ghent University. It is also one of the three departments with their main activities in the fields of electronics, computer science and ICT. In particular in these technical fields, the evolution in industry and society is taking place faster than ever.

On March 12, Dr. Pieter Buteneers (UGent - Reservoir Lab) will give a TEDx talk about his research on interpreting brain signals with machine learning, a branch of artificial intelligence. He currently uses Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) to analyze human brain signals in real-time, for example, in the case of early detection of epileptic seizures or to allow paralyzed people to communicate.
He is joined on the stage by Hugo Mercier, Carolyn Declerck and Michael Shermer, a well know TED speaker. The talk is followed by a discussion on Reasonable Doubt organised by Het Denkgelag.
Ghent will blaze with light for the third time at the Light Festival from 29 January until 1 February 2015. The long-awaited third edition of this festival will run for four days with a festival route even longer than last time, along which you can see all kinds of light sculptures, spectacular projects and installations by contemporary national and international artists. Students will demonstrate experiments with light and Ghent University has created an interactive route with scientific light installations in the UFO building. Enjoy the walk and experience the surprising variety of light creations.
CMST - and partners - have created an installation using smart textiles and smart plastics.
The Liquid Crystals & Photonics group will show an installation about 3D displays, explaining how a 3D image can be created and observed.
Dr. Francis wyffels (Faculteit Ingenieurswetenschappen en Architectuur - Vakgroep Elektronica en Informatiesystemen) is laureaat van de Hermesprijs voor maatschappelijke en wetenschappelijke dienstverlening. Met deze jaarlijkse onderscheiding wil de UGent het kwaliteitsstreven en de blijvende inzet van al haar medewerkers belonen en stimuleren. Francis wyffels verdient deze prijs omwille van zijn onnavolgbare bezieling voor wetenschapscommunicatie en het aantrekkelijk maken van de STEM-disciplines. Zijn robotprojecten trekken wereldwijde aandacht en inspireren jeugdige ingenieurs en wetenschappers in spe.
