Cooperative Communications and Networking Technologies and System Design

Dates: 11-13 July 2023
Location: Vardhaman College of Engineering, Shamshabad, Hyderabad, Telangana, India

Organized By: IEEE Vardhaman College of Engineering Student Branch & IEEE Communication Society  Chapter- Hyderabad Section

Program Chair: Dr. JVR Ravindra

About the Program

This ComSoc School Series event will focus on strengthening the foundation of students’ knowledge in the usage of high-end Cooperative Communication and Networking Technologies, System Design in 5G techniques.  One of the goals of this event is to provide continuing motivation to work on the Two user Cooperative Transmission Scheme and for the design of new products or processes, troubleshooting and management of its overall life-cycle which is ubiquitous in modern industry. Often times by the end of their academic career, students will have limited exposure to these methods and thus when they join the industry, companies must spend valuable time and resources to train these graduates on various communication methods that are used in their respective fields. To address this vital gap area of engineering education, the event program aims to produce graduate engineers who will have expertise in using modern communication methods for a wide variety of industrial applications.

In this Comsoc School Series Event, students will be provided with opportunities to:

  • Network in the area of high-end Cooperative Communication and Networking Technologies, System Design in 5G techniques areas to industry members.
  • Gain knowledge to bridge the gap between Industry and Educational Institution.
  • Hear talks and participate in demonstrations by industry experts

Program Topics

(Subject to change)

  • Review of Wireless Communications and MIMO Techniques
  • Two-User Cooperative Transmission Schemes
  • Fundamental Limits of Cooperative and Relay Network
  • Cooperation Relaying in OFDM and MIMO Systems
  • Networking and Cross-Layer Issues in Cooperative Networks
  • Medium Access Control in Cooperative Networks
  • Cooperative Communications with Multiple Sources
  • Planning for the Panel discussion on Women in Leadership in Communications with the WICE Execom and Past Presidents in Comsoc and Past Chair of WICE
  • Talks on Leadership and IEEE Comsoc Membership/ WICE Membership Driven Activities.

Detailed program agenda coming soon.
