Every Spring, Texas ECE’s Awards Banquet celebrates the achievements of the department’s outstanding students and faculty. Three WNCG members were among those honored at this year’s event, which was held last week on May 6.
The spring semester is in full swing, and as WNCG continues on the forefront of research, the group has welcomed a new Director. Prof. Constantine Caramanis began his three-year term as WNCG Director at the start of the new calendar year. Prior to that, he served as the group’s Associate Director.
With Caramanis stepping into the new role, Prof. Alex Dimakis was chosen among WNCG faculty to serve as Associate Director. WNCG’s leadership system allows the Associate Director to learn the ropes over the course of the term before serving their own term as Director.
WNCG will host the 17th Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) on November 12, 2019.
Planning for TWS has just begun, but you can expect an exciting list of high-profile industry and academia speakers, as in previous Summits. Past events have typically been attended by more than 350 leading members of industry and academia each year.
The Engineering Education and Research Center at The University of Texas was abuzz with over 200 participants gathered for Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) on November 6. This year’s theme was “AI and the Mobile Device.”
Held annually by WNCG, TWS brings together leading figures in industry, academia, and government to discuss the latest developments in information systems technology. “AI and the Mobile Device” marked the 16th summit hosted by the group.
It's no secret that WNCG produces stellar industry and academic professionals. Here's where WNCG students and alumni are headed this summer for internships and employment.
WNCG faculty member Constantine Caramanis was one of five associate professors in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department (ECE) promoted to full professor this spring.
Caramanis joined UT ECE and WNCG in the fall of 2006; he is currently the WNCG’s assistant director. His research interests include: Decision-making under uncertainty, Statistical learning and data driven decision-making, Large scale networks and computation, and Adaptive Control and Optimization.
On November 6 and 7, WNCG hosted the Texas Wireless Summit (TWS). TWS is the group’s annual conference. TWS brings together leading figures in industry, academia, and government to discuss the latest developments in information systems technology. The theme for this year, “What Started Here Has Changed the Wireless World,” was a celebration of the 15 years since the creation of WNCG, founded by Professor Ted Rappaport.
The 2017 Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) will take place November 6-7, 2017, and feature sessions and panels on diverse topics including millimeter wave networks, the future of automated vision and navigation, software defined networking and applications of machine learning.
Prof. Sanjay Shakkottai received a 2017 Qualcomm Faculty Award. The award supports key professors and their research at leading universities across the country. This program connects Qualcomm with top academic researchers in hardware, software, and systems to help track the latest discoveries and facilitate new collaborations between industry and academia.
How electromagnetic, acoustic and optic waves interact with materials creates a foundation for various scientific and technological phenomena. With the invention of metamaterials over the last decades, wave matter interactions not found in nature have opened new possibilities for manipulating wave types across different frequencies.
