Carleton University, Canada

Dr. Viviane Yargeau

MCGill University, Canada

Dr. Riadh Habash

From wearable and mobile communications to power lines and appliances, electromagnetic (EM) energy plays a significant part in many of the innovations that we take for granted everyday. A basic force of nature, this nonionizing energy can be harnessed and used, but still holds the potential to be risky. The question remains, how safe are EM technologies? Especially a new generation of higher frequency telecommunication technologies are being added to the current 2G, 3G, 4G frequencies to offer an array of frequencies that will accumulate enough bandwidth to power future wireless multimedia and the Internet of Things. This speech will present a cutting-edge knowledge and research findings on environmental implications of EM energy comprising low frequency fields and radio frequency radiation including some of the available literature on 5G technologies which are far less investigated for human and environmental effects.

Riadh Habash is an engineering educator and Research Chair on Electromagnetic Energy and Health at the McLaughlin Centre for Population Health Risk Assessment, University of Ottawa. The author of several books and research papers; recipient of the National Wighton Fellowship and several university interdisciplinary initiatives awards; taught for more than 35 years at various universities worldwide.

Topic of Keynote: Environmental Implications of Electromagnetic Energy: The Recent 5G Myth

Keynote Abstract

Dr. Viviane Yargeau

Viviane Yargeau is the Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering at McGill University, an Associate Member of the McGill School of Environment and the Senior Scientific Advisor of Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. She obtained her PhD from Université de Sherbrooke and worked on various initiatives at that institution for two years before joining McGill in 2004. She established the Controlling Contaminants of Concern (3Cs) laboratory, which is now internationally recognized for research on the fate and effects of contaminants in the environment and in engineered systems. Prof. Yargeau holds a MELS Teaching Chair. She has contributed to creating awareness about the presence and impact of trace contaminants in water and to the development of improved wastewater treatment technologies, such as ozonation, for the protection of our water resources. She is often invited to collaborate in international projects where she actively participates in the development of new tools to monitor water quality and generates data from Canada that contributes to global data bases on water quality. She also serves as Editor for the Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, and she is a member of the Board of Directors for the private sector firm, Earth Alive Clean Technologies commercializing two products she co-invented. She has several collaborations at McGill, as well as across Canada, and in Mexico and Europe, both in academia and with industry.

Topic of Keynote: Bioassays: New Tools Engineers Need in their Toolset

Keynote Abstract

The organizing committees of two co-located events, RTESE'19 and ICCSTE'19, have decided to allow registrants of either conference to attend sessions from both events. As a result, we encourage attendees to study the program for both conferences and attend the sessions which they may find relevant/interesting.
For more information about the RTESE'19 Conference, please view the Conference Flyer.
