WNCG Alum Chun-Hung Liu wins IEEE Best Paper Award

Recent WNCG Alumnus Prof. Chun-Hung Liu won the Best Paper award at the 2014 IEEE Workshop on Heterogeneous and Small Cell Networks, held in conjunction with IEEE Globecom in Austin, Texas.   His paper was entitled "Adaptive Downlink CoMP in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks with Imperfect Overhead Messaging”, which is on utilizing several base stations to coordinate their transmissions to boost signal power and reduce other-cell interference, while having imperfect and limited connections between them. Prof. Liu was the sole author.

WNCG Welcomes IEEE Globecom 2014

IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference. The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists and researchers and industry leaders from all around the world.

Texas Wireless Summit 2014 Explores the Tera Era

Prof. Joydeep Ghosh receives $496K from NSF

Much of life involves setting priorities. In the age of information overload, the need to select relevant information and prioritize is greater than ever. Ranking product choices, identifying items of greatest relevance and interest and setting priorities are widespread issues in economics, health informatics and online networks. 

Prof. Andrea Alù selected for U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

Prof. Andrea Alù was selected to participate in the 2014 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. Participation in the symposium is based on a rigorous application and selection process determined by the organizing committee. Each year, 100 engineers under the age of 45 meet for an intensive multi-day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in the areas of next generation robotics, materials for batteries, impacts of shale gas and oil on the economy, environment, energy sustainability and technologies for the heart.

Student Francesco Monticone receives Honorable Mention in IEEE Student Paper Competition

WNCG student Francesco Monticone received an Honorable Mention in the Student Paper Competition at the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting held in Memphis, TN in July 2014.

The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and the U.S. Committee of the International Union of Radio Science (USNC-URSI) cosponsor the symposium. The joint meeting provides an international forum for the exchange of information on state-of-the-art research in antennas, propagation, electromagnetics and radio science.

WNCG Shines During ACM SIGMETRICS 2014

Hosted by WNCG Profs. and General Chairs Sanjay Shakkottai and Sujay Sanghavi, ACM SIGMETRICS featured speakers from across the globe. The week-long conference focused on performance evaluation and methods for computer networks and systems. From student presenters such as Sharayu Moharir, Siddhartha Banerjee, Subhashini Krishnasamy to Prof. François Baccelli taking home the SIGMETRICS achievement award, WNCG played an active role in this year's conference at UT Austin. 

Data Driven Insights for Health Informatics

The move to Electronic Health Records and rapidly expanding availability of health-related information, from billing data body sensors, is providing unprecedented opportunities for innovative data driven solutions to problems in personalized medicine and population health. However, there are many formidable challenges in using EHR data that have limited their utility for clinical research so far, including diverse populations, heterogeneous and noisy information, longitudinal data, interpretability, domain constraints, and privacy concerns.
