Experts from around the world attend ICCSPA’19 held at AUS
Academics and industry experts from around the world came together to share their latest research and findings at the 2019 International Conference on Communications, Signal Processing and their Applications (ICCSPA’19) that began on March 19 at American University of Sharjah (AUS). The aim of the three-day conference was to provide researchers and practitioners with a platform to present their research work as well as to network with colleagues from different regions.
The event covered a wide range of topics related to wireless and mobile communications, 4G, 5G and beyond wireless networks, cognitive radio systems, cooperative radio, multimedia communications and networking biometrics, image and video processing, biomedical applications and compressive sensing, among others. The conference, which included two keynote addresses, five invited talks, and nine technical sessions, featured 41 papers presented over the course of the event.
Addressing the delegates, Professor Kevin Mitchell, Acting Chancellor of AUS, said:
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to American University of Sharjah for the third International Conference on Communications, Signal Processing and their Applications. As with the dynamic nature of these disciplines, this conference has grown over the past years and we are proud to see that it is now attracting top researchers and practitioners from across the world. This dynamism has propelled us on to developing our programs and facilities further, to enable our graduates to enter the workforce confidently and sustain a meaningful career in the industry.”
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Naif Darwish, Acting Dean of the College of Engineering at AUS and Professor of Chemical Engineering, said:
“We are very pleased to see such distinguished academics and experts congregate at AUS for this conference. The topics discussed here are of immense importance and will play a vital part in how the future is shaped. I sincerely hope that the research shared over the next couple of days will engender new ideas, concepts and products.”
The first keynote address on the opening day of the conference was delivered by Professor Hossam Hassanein from Queen’s University School of Computing, Canada, and was entitled Collaborative Caching in Next Generation Wireless Networks. Professor Kainam Thomas Wong from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China, delivered the second keynote address entitled Polarization in Wireless Communications and in Wireless Sensing.
As Co-Chairs of the conference, Professors of Electrical Engineering at AUS, Dr. Mohamed Hasan and Dr. Hasan Mir said:
“In its third edition, ICCSPA19 is expected to further enhance networking opportunities for faculty, graduate students and senior undergraduate students with academics and industry leaders from all over the world. ICCSPA19 provides a venue for promoting collaboration among local and international researchers. It also inspires AUS students in pursuing careers involving advanced research. To help meet the goals of ICCSPA, this year we invited a number of international companies to the conference to give presentations about their activities and products related to communications and signal processing.”
The five invited talks as part of the conference included: 3GPP 5G New Radtio Technology Overview, Deployment Scenarios and Keysight 5G Workflow Solutions, by Ashish Jain from Keysight Technologies; The Relevant Capstone, by Dr. Abd-Elhamid M. Taha from Alfaisal University, KSA; Non-Linear Device Characterization and X-parameters, by Vishal Gupta from Keysight Technologies; GNSS Signal Processing and Future Applications, by Dr. Mohamed Tamazin from Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport, Egypt; and A Platform-Based Approach to Advanced Wireless Research by Michel Nassar, National Instruments.
The conference, which was sponsored by IEEE, Keysight Technologies and Motabaqah Trading, continued through March 21.
