Weekly Seminar: “Graph Signal Processing: Stationary Graph Signals and Topology Inference”

13 July 2016 - 13 July 2016
Speaker: Alejandro Ribeiro, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT: A network can be understood as a complex system formed by multiple nodes, where global network behavior arises from local interactions between connected nodes. Often, networks have intrinsic value and are themselves the object of study. In other occasions, the network defines an underlying notion of proximity or dependence, but the object of interest [...]

Weekly Seminar: “BATS: Network Coding in Action”

11 July 2016 - 11 July 2016

ABSTRACT: Network coding can significantly improve the transmission rate of communication networks with packet loss compared with routing. However, using network coding usually incurs higher computational and storage costs in the network devices and terminals. For example, some network coding schemes require the computational and/or storage capabilities of an intermediate network node to increase linearly [...]

Weekly Seminar: “The use of unmanned aerial vehicle for geo-hydrological processes analysis and monitoring”

07 July 2016 - 07 July 2016
Speaker: Daniele Giordan, Instituto di ricerca per la Protezione Idrogeologica (IRPI), Italy

ABSTRACT: In the remote sensing research, recent technological developments have resulted in increase in field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), becoming more common and widespread in civil and commercial context. In particular, the development in photogrammetry and in technologies associated (i.e. RLS digital cameras and GNSS/INS systems) allows the use of UAV platforms for various [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Microwave propagation through atmosphere: the role of the tropospheric spatial and temporal variations of water vapour distribution. Analysis of experimental data obtained by times series of SAR images and GPS data”

25 April 2016 - 25 April 2016
Speaker: Giovanni Nico, Ph. D.

ABSTRACT: The problem of how the atmospheric characteristics affect the propagation of microwaves is of main concern in several Remote Sensing techniques, especially for SAR interferometry and GPS signal reconstruction. Microwave propagation through atmosphere is mainly affected by the spatial and temporal variations of water vapour distribution in troposphere. In this talk some experimental results [...]
