WiDeS at IEEE-ICC in Dresden
June 14-18th, 2009

One of the flagship events of the IEEE Communications Society, the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) took place in Dresden, Germany, from June 14-18. WiDes was present with 3 papers: power optimization for "split-and-combine relaying"; a model for MIMO car-to-car propagation channels; and a performance analysis of antenna selection algorithms in time-variant channels. In addition, Andy Molisch from WiDeS, together with Dr. Jeff Tao (Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs) and Prof. Neelesh Metha (Indian Institute of Science) gave a well-attended tutorial on the fundamental technologies for fourth-generation wireless systems and their implementations in the most important standards - LTE, Wimax, and 802.11n.
