Congratulations to Nancy Jia, graduate student in electrical and computer engineering (ECE), on winning second place in the student paper competition at the 2016 Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers. Her paper, titled, “On the Impact of Blockage on the Throughput of Multi-tier Millimeter-Wave Networks,” was co-authored by ECE graduate student David Ramirez, and Huawei employees Lei Huang and Yi Wang. The students are advised by Behnaam Aazhang, J.S. Abercrombie Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
ECE graduate students and faculty also participating at the conference are: Zhiting Cai, Kaipeng Li, Clayton Shepard, Abeer Javed, Ryan Guerra, Jian Ding, Lin Zhong, Professor Joseph Cavallaro, and Professor Ashutosh Sabharwal. Recent graduate Niranjan Gowda ’15 also presented, as did undergraduate June Chen.
ECE graduate John Treichler ’70, delivered the 50th Anniversary Asilomar Distinguished Lecture, titled, “Fifty Years of the Asilomar Conference, and its role in the Flowering of DSP Technology.” Treicher is CTO of Raytheon Applied Signal Technology. Earlier this year, he was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering.
The Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers is a yearly conference held on the Asilomar Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA, USA. The IEEE Signal Processing Society is a technical co-sponsor. It provides a forum for presenting recent and novel work in various areas of theoretical and applied signal processing.
