Workshop on Wireless Vehicular Communications

November 30, 2012

On behalf of the IEEE VT Society and the VT/COM/IT Sweden Chapter Board a one-day Workshop on Wireless Vehicular Communications was arranged.

Like last year, wwvc2011external link, the program included peakers from Lund University, Chalmers University of Technology, and Halmstad University. This year the invited talk was given by Andreas Festag, chief researcher at NEC Laboratories Europe, Network Laboratories in Heidelberg, Germany

Host was Elisabeth Uhlemann
Vice-chair VT/COM/IT Sweden Chapter
CERES and ELLIIT, Halmstad University

Andreas Festag, NEC, Germany Chief researcher at NEC Laboratories Europe, Network Laboratories in Heidelberg, Germany.  He received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2003 from the Technical University Berlin. Andreas has worked on various research projects for wireless and mobile communication networks. His research is concerned with architecture, design and performance evaluation of wireless and mobile communication systems; currently focused on vehicular communication.  He actively contributes to the CAR-2-CAR Communication Consortium and to ITS standardization in ETSI Technical Committee ITS. He is senior member of IEEE.

Fredrik Tufvesson, Lund University Received his Ph.D. in 2000 from Lund University in Sweden. After almost two years at a startup company, Fiberless Society, he is now associate professor at the department of Electrical and Information Technology, Lund University. His main research interests are channel measurements and modelling for wireless communication, including channels for both MIMO and UWB systems. Beside this, he also works on distributed antenna systems, radio based positioning and with his company, Hepkie, on radio based search and rescue equipment.  Fredrik is currently associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and has authored and co-authored around 30 journal papers and 90 conference papers.

Taimoor Abbas, Lund University Received his M.Sc. degree in Electronics in 2006 from Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad, Pakistan and M.S degree in Wireless Communications in 2009 from Department of EIT Lund University, Sweden. He has been with Ericsson research (November 2008 to April 2009) for his master thesis titled ‘Multi-Model Approach for System Identification in Digital Communications Receivers’. Currently he is pursuing his PhD with radio systems group at the Department of EIT, Lund University Sweden. His research interests are estimation and modeling of radio channels for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications and MIMO systems. 

Keerthi Nagalapur, Chalmers University of Technology Did his bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering in India and completed his master’s degree in Communication Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden in September 2012. He worked on four and eight-dimensional modulation formats in his master’s thesis carried out at Ericsson, Mölndal.  He joined the Communication Systems Group at Chalmers University of Technology as a PhD student in October 2012 under the supervision of Erik Ström and Fredrik Brännström and is working on MIMO signal processing for vehicular communications in the Chase V2X project.

Annette Böhm, Halmstad University Received her BSc in Information and Communication Technology and MSc in Computer Systems Engineering from Halmstad University and her Licentiate of Technology degree from Örebro University in 2003, 2004 and 2009, respectively. She is currently working on her PhD in the area of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) where her research focus is on Medium Access Control and real-time aspects of ITS safety applications.

Magnus Jonsson, Halmstad University Holds a chair in Real-Time Computer Systems at Halmstad University since 2003, where he also is the head of the Computing and Communications Laboratory and vice-director of CERES – The Centre for Research on Embedded Systems. From 2012 he is the steering group chairman of the EIS research environment, the largest research environment at Halmstad University. He has published ca 90 scientific papers and book chapters, and has made significant contributions in the areas of real-time communication, real-time and embedded computer systems, wireless and vehicular communication and optical interconnection networks. Prof. Jonsson received the Ph.D. degree from Chalmers University of Technology in 1999. He is the current or past advisor of nine Ph.D. students with eight licentiate degrees and four PhD degrees reached. He has been deeply involved in the start-up of the PhD education at Halmstad University and has several formal roles in it. Prof. Jonsson has served on the program committees of over 30 conferences and served as an international liaison co-chair for the 28th Int. Conf. on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2008). He is a senior member of IEEE and ACM.

Slawomir Nowaczyk, Halmstad University Received his MSc degree in Computer Science at Poznan University of Technology, Poland in June 2002 and his PhD degree at Lund University in May 2008. After that he held an Assistant Professor position at AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, Poland, before joining the Redi2Service project at IS-Lab as an Assistant Professor in November 2012. His main research interests are in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and in the ReDi2Service project he is working on analysing on-board data from trucks and buses for diagnostics and predictive maintenance.
