Another of the essential pieces of this conference are the sessions of authors of recognized prestige in the field of investigation of the event. For this edition, we have already confirmed assistance from proffesors Moe Win and Sofiène Affes.
We will also be honored to hear a talk from Prof. Moe Win. He is Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His research encompasses fundamental theories, algorithm design, and network experimentation for a broad range of real-world problems. His current research topics include network localization and navigation, network interference exploitation, intrinsic wireless network secrecy, adaptive diversity techniques, and ultra-wideband systems. He received the IEEE Communications Society Edwin H. Armstrong Achievement Award.
His presentation entitled Network location and navigation: Signal processing opportunities, seeks to deepen to importance of network localization and navigation, a new paradigm that exploits a combination of wideband transmission and spatiotemporal cooperation. The author’s work has addressed this problem from three perspectives: theoretical framework, cooperative algorithms, and network experimentation. This talk will provide an overview of his recent research results in this exciting field.
We will also guest, Sofiène Affes, who has a Ph.D. degree (Hons.) in signal processing from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France, in 1992 and 1995, respectively. He was a Research Associate with INRS, Montreal, QC, Canada, until 1997, an Assistant Professor until 2000, and an Associate Professor until 2009. He is currently a Full Professor and Director of PERSWADE.
In his statement entitled Cost-, Spectrum-, and Energy-Efficient Distributed Collaborative Beamforming Designs for Real-World Applications will present novel DCB designs, obtained in closed form, that do not require any data exchange between terminals, yet properly cope, as dictated by a broad range of applications, with both scattered and interfered multi-antenna dual-hop transmissions under different power constraints. We also analyze the performance of these new DCB designs in terms of SNR and link-level throughput, both by newly established theoretical closed-form expressions and simulations to illustrate their spectrum, power, and computational-cost efficiencies in real-world operating conditions that account for various implementation imperfections.
