Education & Training

IEEE ComSoc School Series logo

Intensive Learning and Networking

The IEEE ComSoc School Series Program is designed to help kick-start the careers of new professionals, Ph.D. candidates, and researchers in wireless communications.  Programs for these events consist of lectures by world leading professors, industry leaders and executives. Each event features a highly interactive classroom environment with an intense focus on learning the cutting-edge trends in communications technology.  Past event activities also included laboratory tours, demonstrations, hands-on workshops and networking activities.

We are pleased to offer these unique activities to enhance the education of IEEE ComSoc Student Members. Seats in the ComSoc School Series events are limited and availability runs out fast, so students are encouraged to apply early.

Eligibility Requirements

Participants in ComSoc School Series events must:

  • be an IEEE Communications Society Student or Graduate Student Member
  • not have previously attended a ComSoc School Series events (including Summer or Autumn School)
  • be proficient in spoken and written English

In addition, application to a ComSoc School Series event requires a brief reference from the applicant’s thesis advisor or manager.

Please note: As a U.S. based organization, IEEE must comply with applicable U.S. government regulations that may affect an applicant’s eligibility to participate in these events. For more information please visit IEEE OFAC Sanctions Programs and/or contact your event organizer.

Best Readings in Network Localization and Navigation

This Best Readings covers different aspects of NLN, including fundamental theory, cooperative algorithms, operation strategies, and network experimentation. Fundamental theory provides performance benchmarks and tools for network design. Cooperative algorithms provide a way to achieve drastic performance improvements with respect to traditional non-cooperative positioning. To harness these benefits, system designers must develop efficient operation strategies. Furthermore, network experimentation is essential to compare different cooperative algorithms under common settings. The selected articles aim to provide researchers and practitioners with a comprehensive view on all the aforementioned aspects that are essential for the design and operation of efficient NLN.
