Title: On the entropy of wireless networks


  As the era of 5G and the IoT looms, the densities and complexities of wireless networks are increasing at an astonishing rate.  It is particularly interesting, and rather unsettling, that this evolution is taking place without a full understanding of whether or not this scaling is sustainable, or even possible.  The reason for this omission is primarily due to the fact that, until now, the engineering community has not had a quantitative framework for analyzing wireless network properties such as scalability, complexity, topological uncertainty, and stability.  In this talk, we will introduce such a framework by developing the formalism of spatial graph entropy in the context of wireless communication networks.  After providing a pedagogical introduction to this topic, we will present a number of analytical results reported over the last two years, and propose potential uses for the new formalism to enhance wireless network performance.


  Prof. Justin P. Coon received a BSc degree (with distinction) in electrical engineering from the Calhoun Honours College, Clemson University, USA and a PhD in communications from the University of Bristol, UK in 2000 and 2005, respectively. In 2004, he joined Toshiba Research Europe Ltd. (TREL) as a Research Engineer working in its Bristol based Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL), where he conducted research on a broad range of communication technologies and theories, including single and multi-carrier modulation techniques, estimation and detection, diversity methods, system performance analysis and networks. He held the position of Research Manager from 2010 - 2013, during which time he led all theoretical and applied research on the physical layer at TRL. Prof. Coon was a Visiting Fellow with the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol from 2010 - 2012, and held a position as Reader in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the same university from 2012 - 2013. He joined the University of Oxford in 2013 where he is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Engineering Science and the Emmott Fellow and Tutor in Engineering at Oriel College.  Prof. Coon is the recipient of TRL's Distinguished Research Award for his work on block-spread CDMA, aspects of which were adopted as mandatory features in the 3GPP LTE Rel-8 standard. He is also a co-recipient of two best paper awards. Prof. Coon has published in excess of 150 papers in leading international journals and conferences, and is a named inventor on more than 30 patents. He has served as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (2007 - 2013), IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology (2013 - 2016), IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (2016 - present), and IEEE Communications Letters (2017 - present).  Prof. Coon has also serves as a technical co-chair for several IEEE conferences (including ICC and VTC).  His research interests include communication theory, signal processing for communications, information theory, and network theory. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications and a Senior Member of the IEEE.

Title: Node Deployment in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks


  Wireless networks of the future, such as the Internet of Things, are envisioned to be highly heterogeneous. In many applications, one is interested in optimally deploying a network of nonidentical nodes to a certain area of interest. These networks may include a multitude of connected autonomous nodes in one or more tiers. We formulate these deployment problems as quantizer design problems where different distortion measures should be associated with different quantization indices. We discuss fundamental design challenges like the best spatial deployment of nodes to minimize the energy consumption or maximize the sensing accuracy while guaranteeing network connectivity. This is done by developing a quantization theory of heterogeneous reproduction points. We will discuss the characteristics of such a heterogeneous quantization theory and show that some of the standard results of the traditional quantization theory, including Gersho's conjecture, do not hold.


 Dr. Hamid Jafarkhani is a Chancellor's Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Irvine, where he is also the Director of Center for Pervasive Communications and Computing and the Conexant-Broadcom Endowed Chair. Among his awards are the IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications, the IEEE Communications Society Award for Advances in Communication, and the IEEE Eric E. Sumner Award. Dr. Jafarkhani is listed as a highly cited researcher in http://www.isihighlycited.com. According to the Thomson Scientific, he is one of the top 10 most-cited researchers in the field of computer science during 1997-2007. He is the 2017 Innovation Hall of Fame Inductee at the University of Maryland's School of Engineering, a Fellow of AAAS, an IEEE Fellow, and the author of the book Space-Time Coding: Theory and Practice.
