PhD position at CentraleSupélec (Rennes, FRANCE)


Topic: Hybrid precoded index modulation schemes for downlink Sub-THz MU-MIMO systems

Keywords: Beyond 5G, Signal processing, Sub-THZ band, Hybrid Beamforming, Spatial Modulation, MU-MIMO

The general target of this PhD is to propose efficient Hybrid precoded beam (HB) structures in downlink spatial modulation, using available Sub-THz channel state information (CSI) knowledge. The techniques to be proposed should enable Sub-THz communication in a multi-User MIMO context and should target at minimizing the energy consumption at the base station.

Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship on sub-THz communications. The scholarship is jointly funded by Centrale-Supélec, Rennes and IMT-Nord-Europe, Lille (France).

Interested candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering or related discipline,
  • Strong background in communication theory, signal processing,
  • Good knowledge of mathematical optimization,
  • Good programming skills (Python, Matlab),
  • Good written and communication skills in English.

SCA22: The 7th Smart City Applications International Conference

Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco

Castelo Branco, Portugal, October 19-21, 2022

 

The Seventh International Conference on Smart City Applications is a multidisciplinary forum co-organized by the Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco (IPCB) in the partnership with Mediterranean Association of Sciences and Technologies (Medi-AST).

The event aims to bring together research scientists and engineers to discuss and exchange both experimental and theoretical results, novel designs, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the area of smart cities.

List of topics:

  • information technologies and computer science
  • geo-smart information systems
  • smart building and home automation
  • smart environment and smart agriculture
  • smart education and intelligent learning system
  • smart economy and digital business
  • smart healthcare

The conference proceedings will be published as a book in the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems series and will be submitted for publication in SCOPUS, INSPEC and Web of Science.

PhD and Post-doc positions at the University of Brussels (ULB)

Wireless synchronization and fingerprinting

28 GHz localization and mapping

About the project

The SYNCH-NET project aims at solving multiple bottlenecks in wireless localization networks:

  1. Over-the-air synchronization of wireless anchor nodes for TDOA-based localization networks, using additional signal dimensions such as CFO.
  2. RF fingerprinting of radio devices in order to allow for short-term tracking while preventing long-term identification
  3. Using 28 GHz beamsteering arrays for node localization and environment mapping.

In this context, we have two open positions (one PhD student and one postdoc) for a duration of two years. PhD candidates will be encouraged to apply for an additional PhD fellowship.

Entry requirements

PhD position:

  • Sc. or M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering or related field
  • Good knowledge of telecommunications and radio systems

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an interview. The position will remain open until filled.

Massive open online course on “Ultra-Dense Networks for 5G and its Evolution”

Many of the new mobile communication devices will be things that power and monitor our homes, city infrastructure and transport. Controlling drones thousands of miles away, performing remote surgeries or being immerse in video with no latency will also be a huge game changer. Those are some of the few things that make the fifth generation (5G) a revolution expected to be a thrust to the economy and that make it the focus of all the players in the telecommunications field nowadays. To that end, the design and density of deployment of new networks is also changing becoming denser, what introduces new challenges into play. What else will it add to previous generations? The MOOC about Ultra-dense networks for 5G and its evolution has been prepared by the researchers of a European MSCA ITN, named TemUp5G, and introduces the most important technologies that support 5G mobile communications, with an emphasis on increasing capacity and reducing power, that facilitates the deployment of small cells. The content spans from aspects of communication technologies to use cases, prototyping and the future ahead, not forgetting issues like interference management, energy efficiency or spectrum management. The aim of the MOOC is to fill the gap in graduation and post-graduation learning on content related to emerging 5G technologies and its applications, including the future 6G. The target audience involves engineers, researchers, practitioners, and students.

The TeamUp5G MOOC “Ultra-dense networks for 5G and its evolution” is now online with the participation of all the TeamUp5G early stage researchers and several supervisors.

The MOOC is integrated by 6 modules focused on the following subjects:

Module 1 – Ultra-dense networks and small cells

Module 2 – New transmission technologies

Module 3 – Interference management and energy efficiency

Module 4 – Spectrum sharing and carrier aggregation

Module 5 – Use cases and prototyping

Module 6 – The future ahead
