eWear student

symposium 2017

Welcome to eWear student society symposium website

We are excited to invite you to present your research at the first e-WEAR student annual symposium on September 7th at Stanford University.

This is a great opportunity for the Stanford community to get familiar with your research. Be open for inspiring discussions, generation of ideas and opportunities for collaborations.

This one-day symposium consists of several invited talks from students/postdocs, confirmed keynote speakers from Instabeat, Nokia Bell Labs and Royole (we are also in the process of having more speakers from start-ups and Stanford community), the day will be completed by a poster session and reception.

We are also looking for volunteers helping to organize the symposium; Please indicate your interest in the registration form.


Registration is free for Stanford community!

Only 150 places available, register now!

Keynote speakers

Dr. Bill Liu

Royole's Next-Generation Human Machine Interfaces based on Flexible Electronics

Dr. Bill Liu is the Founder and CEO of Royole Corporation, a leading innovator and manufacturer of next-generation human-machine interface technologies and products such as advanced flexible displays, flexible sensors, and smart devices.

Dr. Liu founded Royole with his Stanford friends in 2012 with the mission to improve the way people interact with and perceive the world. Royole has a market valuation of USD $3B as of Cotober 2016, making it one of the world’s fastest-growing technology start-ups.

Technology milestones include the world's thinnest full-color flexible display with a thickness of 0.01mm and a bending radius of 1mm (2014), the world's first foldable 3D virtual mobile theater (2015), and the world's first curved car dashboard based on flexible electronics (2016).

As the company Founder, Dr. Liu was named 35 Innovators Under 35 by MIT Technology Review in 2017, Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2017 and Top 10 Most Innovative Entrepreneurs in the US and China by Forbes in 2015, amongst several other prestigious awards.

Michael S. Eggleston

From Advanced Optical Sensing to Extrasensory Perception: The Future Human Sensory Interface

Michael S. Eggleston received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Physics from Iowa State University (2009) and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley (2015). In 2015, he joined Bell Labs where he is currently leading research into new optical sensing techniques and integrated photonic sensing systems that will enable low-cost continuous health and environmental monitoring. His research interests include on-chip light sources, advanced-functionality integrated optical systems, and optical methods for remote bio-sensing and health monitoring.

Hind Hobeika

The vectorial universal fit challenge: how to fit Instabeat on every swimming goggle and every head shape.

Hind invented, developed and sold the first version of Instabeat in 56 countries. She has been invited around the world to speak about the product and the future of technology in swimming, most notably at the White House, Harvard Arab Weekend Conference, TED Talent, World Economic Forum in China. She was also selected as top five Arab innovators under 35 by MIT Tech Review and among the 100 Women on the BBC List. To date, Instabeat has raised a total of $6M in venture funding.
