Jiaxiao Zheng received the Best Student Paper Award at the 17th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc and Wireless Networks (WiOpt 2019). The conference took place this summer in Avignon, France.
Prof. Robert Heath delivered a keynote speech at IEEE Communication Society’s 2018 International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC).
Due to the superposition and broadcast nature of the wireless medium, unmanaged interference results in diminishing data rates in wireless networks. With a recently developed network coding strategy, however, it was demonstrated that interference is no longer adverse in communication networks, provided that it can sagaciously be harnessed. This approach of exploiting interference has opened the possibility of better performance in the interference-limited communication regime than traditionally thought possible.
