High Spectral Efficiency for Future Wireless Communications

The  IEEE Kingston Joint Communications and Computer Chapter is proud to sponsor the following IEEE lecture:



Date:        Wednesday, December 13th, 2017.

Time:       2:00 – 3:00PM

Venue:     WLH302 , Walter Light Hall, Queens University, Kingston.

Speaker:  Prof. Claude D’Amours, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Ottawa

Abstract: Much research is focused on increasing spectral efficiency of current wireless systems to contribute to the large increases in capacity required for future wireless communication systems.  New research is focusing on non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), Spatial modulation and multiplexing, error control coding and multiuser detection as methods to increase spectral efficiency.  In this talk we will examine different methods based on CDMA or SC-FDMA techniques as well as MIMO technology to improve spectral efficiency.

Speaker Bio: Claude D’Amours completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Ottawa in 1995.  He was employed at the Communications Research Centre as a Systems Engineer in 1995 before joining the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at RMC later that year.  He joined the School of Information technology and Engineering, later named the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, at the University of Ottawa in 1999.  He was the Vice Dean of Undergraduate Studies from 2007-2011 and has been the Director of the School since 2013.  His research areas focus on physical layer technologies for future wireless communications.


This seminar is open to the general public with free admission and refreshments. For further information, please contact Dr. Francois Chan
