AtlantTIC organizes the “4th International Workshop on Cooperative Wireless Networks (IEEE Wimob – CWN 2017)”

· from 8 to 11 October, 2017

The fourth Workshop organized by AtlantTIC on cooperative wireless networks will take place from October 9 to 11 in Rome, Italy, at the 13th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2017).

The aim of this Workshop is to provide a space for technicians and researchers in which they will present new ideas and contributions in the field of cooperative wireless networks, a key element for the advancement of the Internet of the Future. The concept of cooperation can be applied to a wide range of technologies, systems and applications, with the objective of efficient use of spectrum (cognitive radio), extension of network coverage (cooperative diversity, multi-hop relay) , Better performance and reliability (network coding, cross-layer protocols) and user safety (vehicular networks, emergency networks), among other aspects. For the first time, in this edition, it incorporates to the set of topics of interest the cooperation in networks defined by software, the UPN networks in which the users participate in the network giving their resources, and the cooperation in the Internet paradigm of the Things ( IoT).

CWN workshop chairs are Cristina López Bravo and Beatriz Lorenzo.

He worked for MagiQ Technologies (New York) to initiate the project of commercial realisation of quantum key distribution.

Returning to academia in 2001, he built up and lead an Emmy-Noether Research Group at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, during which time he did his habiliation (2004).

Currently he is a Professor at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) and in the Physics department at the University of Waterloo and runs the Optical Quantum Communication Theory Group.

Title: Quantum Cryptography: Why and How.

Speaker: Prof. Norbert Lütkenhaus.

Seminar: Practical Quantum Key Distribution with Continuous Variables

Sala acristalada (A-010) | Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo) · on April 20, 2017

Quantum mechanics is a well established theory that can explain a lot of phenomena occurring at very small scales. The consequences of quantum mechanics are not always intuitive but they play a fundamental role in the evolution of technology
towards atomic scales in order to develop more versatile and efficient devices. At the same time, it is possible to take advantage of these effects (many of which are not observable in the macroscopic world) and use them to process information in ways which are not possible with classical physical theories. Welcome to the world of quantum information!

Quantum information (QI) adopts a physical approach to information in order to take advantage of some quantum properties (entanglement, uncertainty, superposition…). The most well known promises of QI are quantum computers and quantum key distribution (QKD). Quantum computers are able to perform some tasks more efficiently than their classical counterparts while QKD allows the establishment of a key between different parties that remains secure no matter the resources of the attacker.

The talk will cover the basic quantum mechanics to grasp the most general QI algorithms. The current trends of QKD and their implication in the modern world will be discussed. A more technical approach will be taken to explain QKD, specially the continuous variable version (CV-QKD) which is very attractive for integration and mass production.

Luis Trigo Vidarte is an engineer coming from the University of Vigo (Spain). After spending four years working at Gradiant (Galician R&D ICT Center) he got attracted to quantum mechanics and he is currently working towards a PhD in Paris (Institut d’Optique Graduate School and Université Pierre et Marie Curie). The topic of his PhD is high performance continuous variable quantum key distribution (CV-QKD), specially regarding new protocols, integration and extension to free space (with satellite communications in mind).

Title: Practical Quantum Key Distribution with Continuous Variables

Speaker: Luis Trigo Vidarte

Place and time: A-010 Room| Escuela Ingeniería Telecomunicación (Vigo), on Thursday 20 april from 15:30h to 17:00h.

Signal processing, the core of 5G

Signal processing is at the core of the emerging fifth generation (5G) cellular communication systems, which will feature revolutionary changes in the physical layer. The objective of this summer school is to teach the main physical-layer techniques for 5G from a signal-processing perspective. The lectures will provide background on 5G wireless communication concepts, and their formulation from a signal processing perspective. Emphasis will be placed on showing specifically how cutting-edge signal processing techniques can be used in 5G.

The lecture topics include: Massive MIMO, mmWave communications, positioning, and massive machine-to-machine (M2M) communication. Through the course of the lectures, connections will be made to core signal processing topics, including channel estimation via compressed sensing, while also introducing the mathematics associated with the analysis and optimization of communication systems.
