SBASSE Auditorium 10-201

Department of Electrical Engineering presents

IEEE Communication Society Workshop on Intelligent Communication Networks

Date: August 7–10, 2018
Venue: SBASSE Auditorium 10-201, LUMS
Time: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm

The event will be organised in line with international summer schools conducted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Communications Society. As the event title suggests, the theme this year will revolve around the emerging use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in the design of next-generation communication networks. Targeting graduate students and researchers alike, the objective of the event is to equip the audience with the technical tools required to carry out cutting-edge research in this important direction. The event will attempt to achieve this objective through concerted teaching sessions coupled with tutorial-type technical talks and seminars. The event will also include a session where selected graduate students will present the ideas behind their thesis, and get valuable feedback from seasoned international researchers.

The primary target audience of the event is

  • Graduate students (MS/PhD)
  • Researchers and faculty members
  • Professionals from the industry

The event will provide a platform for graduate students, faculty members, and industry professionals from across the country to share ideas in the emerging research area of the use of artificial intelligence in designing future generation communication networks. Most importantly, it will provide an opportunity to graduate students from across the country to not only hone their fundamental concepts but also to explore the important research directions being pursued across the globe.
