The World at cfaed: Calendar / Portrait Series of Our International Scientists
As last year, we produced a glossy calendar. We extended the dimensions to bold 46x46 centimeters, and featured the splendid photography style of Jürgen Lösel once more. The topic of our 2015 calendar is "The World at cfaed". In addition, we started a new series with the same topic on our website, introducing the people shown in the calendar. While the calendar presents the people in a very condensed style, the website series is for those who want to read more! The calendar is still available at the PR office. It's free for all cfaed members as well as cooperating partners and network partners. And here you can download it as a PDF file.
Program Office Moved - New Phone Numbers
cfaed Program Office has moved. You can now find us at the historic monument "Ida Bienert Villa", Würzburger Str. 46, 01187 Dresden. For the first time, all administrative cfaed staff is united under one roof! Some of the phone numbers at our program office have changed once again. Please refer to the website to find the changes in detail. To show the location, follow the TUD Campus Navigator.

Grand Professor Week @ cfaed
In mid-November, cfaed organized a "Grand Professor Week". This event ran under the frame of the Cluster's Grand Professor Program which is one of the most important tools of cfaed's unique career development program. Four of our Grand Professors were on site: Prof. James Cordy, Prof. Helene Kirchner, Prof. Heinrich Meyr and Prof. Itamar Willner. The GPW also included an exhibition and a PhD Students Welcome Day. The GPW started with two scientific talks: Prof. Michael Schröter, cfaed Carbon Path Leader, talked about "CNTFET-based HF electronics - State-of-the-art and future prospects". Grand Professor Itamar Willner introduced us to “DNA Nanotechnology: From Basic Concepts to Potential Applications”. Last but not least, our Grand Profs left behind some words of advice for our PhD students. Find out more by clicking the video!

Prof. Gerhard Fettweis Receives IEEE WTC Recognition Award and Dresden Congress Award
Each year, the IEEE Wireless Communications Technical Committee (WTC) recognizes one or two colleagues with outstanding achievements and contribution in the area of "wireless communications systems and networks" through the "WTC Recognition Award." In October 2014, the Award Selection Committee selected cfaed coordinator Prof. Gerhard Fettweis as the winner of the 2014 WTC Recognition Award. Congratulations! The award plaque was presented to Gerhard during the WTC meeting at the GLOBECOM 2014, the IEEE Global Communications Conference, which was held from 8 Dec - 12 Dec 2014 in Austin, Texas, USA. In November, also the prestigious Dresden Congress Award was once more presented to Prof. Fettweis. The awardees were honored at the ceremony for their success in attracting internationally successful conferences and workshops to Dresden. Prof. Fettweis received the award for the VTC2013-Spring, for which he was General Chair in June 2013.

German Prize for IT-Security 2014 Goes to Prof. Hermann Härtig's Team
A team including cfaed investigator Prof. Hermann Härtig came in third at this year’s IT-Security prize awarded by the Horst Görtz Foundation. Every other year, a jury of IT-experts awards the prize for innovations in the areas of IT-security, cryptography, system and network security as well as defense of cyber attacks. In this year, 66 teams had submitted applications of which 11 were shortlisted. Members of Prof. Härtig's team include Adam Lackorzynski (TUD spinoff Kernkonzept GmbH), Matthias Broll and Dr. Aubrey-Derrick Schmidt (both T-Systems International GmbH) as well as Dr. Christoph Peylo (Trust2Core GmbH). By adapting the L4Re microkernel for mobile platforms, two operating systems can run at the same time which enables an open user space compartment to send e.g. private mails and a secure business area where communication is only possible via a VPN tunnel.
