ECE 293. Distinguished Speakers in Communication Theory and Systems

Qualcomm Institute and the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department present the first seminar series on communication theory and systems. Speakers will cover topics in diverse areas, including wireless, optical, location, storage and networking. The goal of this series is to promote the development and use of theory informed by the most recent advancements in the field. Industry speakers, prominent in theory and practice, will share their research and insights each week.
