WNCG alumni, Prof. Chan-Byoung Chae, along with his students and colleagues from Canada, recently received the IEEE INFOCOM 2015 Best Demo Award. They received the award for their project entitled “Molecular MIMO Communication Link.”
WNCG Prof. François Baccelli and X. Zhang have proposed a new model for shadowing. This model, which is based on the Poisson-Manhattan line process, generates correlated and log-normal shadowing fields. In a paper to be presented at INFOCOM 2015, this model is used for the analysis of urban wireless networks, where the locations of the nodes and the shadowing are known to be highly correlated. This shadowing model is tractable in that the distribution of the interference observed at a typical location and the joint distribution at different locations have closed form expressions.
