PhD thesis Defense: Subset selection in signal processing using sparsity-inducing norms

In the context of this PhD thesis defense, Luis Blanco presents his work realized at CTTC. This dissertation deals with different subset selection problems in wireless communications systems. These type of problems have a combinatorial nature, which makes them computationally intractable for medium and large-scale sizes. In particular, two different types of problems are addressed [...]

PhD thesis Defense: Estimation and Control in Energy Harvesting Wireless Communication Networks

In the context of this PhD thesis defense, Miguel Calvo-Fullana presents his work realized at CTTC. Long thought to be an unattainable ambition, self-sustainable and green-powered wireless networks are rapidly becoming a reality. This is driven by recent hardware improvements in what is known as Energy Harvesting (EH). This technology makes it possible for devices [...]

Weekly Seminar: “FLOSS for research: exploitation strategies and business models”

21 July 2017 - 21 July 2017
Speaker: Óscar David Sánchez Jiménez, Prince Felipe Research Center

ABSTRACT: The potential of Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) as a way to increase competitiviness has been emphasized by many studies as well as public policies and funding programs. While many research and innovation projects and organizations adopt FLOSS in order to foster the dissemination of their results, the translation to marketable products and services remains [...]

PhD thesis Defense: Polarization and Index Modulations: a Theoretical and Practical Perspective

In the context of this PhD thesis defense, Pol Henarejos presents his work realized at CTTC. Radiocommunication systems have evolved significantly in recent years in order to meet present and future demands. Historically, time, frequency and more recently, spatial dimensions have been used to improve capacity and robustness. Paradoxically, radiocommunications that leverage the polarization dimension [...]

Weekly Seminar: “OTFS: A New Generation of Modulation Addressing the Challenges of 5G”

18 July 2017 - 18 July 2017
Speaker: Christian Ibars Casas, Cohere Technologies (USA)

ABSTRACT: A new two-dimensional modulation technique called Orthogonal Time Frequency Space (OTFS) modulation designed in the delay-Doppler domain is introduced as a waveform ideally suited to new 5G use cases. Through this design, which exploits full diversity over time and frequency, OTFS coupled with equalization converts the fading, time-varying wireless channel experienced by modulated signals [...]
