WiDeS shows strong presence at ICC in London

The IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) is one of the two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, and as so often, WiDeS had a massive presence at this prestigious event. A total of 9 papers (6 at the main conference, and 3 at the workshop on localization), and a keynote in the workshop on small cells showcased the productivity of the group. Three WiDeS members were there to present the work (unfortunately visa issues prevent some others to go): PhD students Vishnu Ratnam and Sundar Aditya, and Professor Andy Molisch. The presented papers at the main conference were
 
 “Ultrawideband MIMO Channel Measurements and Modeling in a Warehouse Environment”, 
“Experimental Demonstration of 16-Gbit/s Millimeter-Wave Communications Link using Thin Metamaterial Plates to Generate Data-Carrying Orbital-Angular-Momentum Beams”.
 “Linearization-based Cross-Layer Design for Throughput Maximization in OFDMA Wireless Ad-hoc Networks”
“Capacity Analysis of Interlaced Clustering in a Distributed Antenna System,”
“Experimental Measurements of Multipath-Induced Intra- and Inter-Channel Crosstalk Effects in a Millimeter-Wave Communications Link using Orbital-Angular-Momentum Multiplexing,
 “Experimental Demonstration of Nanosecond-Accuracy Wireless Network Synchronization”,

and the Localization Workshop papers:
 “Tracking and positioning using phase information from estimated multi-path components”
“Tracking and positioning using phase information from estimated multi-path components”,
 “Ultrawideband MIMO Channel Measurements and Modeling in a Warehouse Environment”, 
The keynote, presented in the “Small Cell” workshop, was on Femto-caching and device-to-device collaboration for wireless video network”
