SPAN lab researcher Jessica Croft presented her paper, "Robust Uncorrelated Bit Extraction Methodologies for Wireless Sensors" at the 9th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN 2010) conference in Stockholm, Sweden on April 13, 2010. Her paper was one of only 20 papers accepted out of 117 submitted papers to IPSN, a 17% acceptance rate.
Prof. Neal Patwari will be the publicity chairperson for the 9th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) 2010. Naturally, he wants you to be there! The IPSN conference will take place from April 12 - 16, 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden. As in the previous two years, the conference will be part of Cyber-Physical Systems Week (CPS Week), which brings together five leading conferences - RTAS, IPSN, HSCC, CPSC and LCTES - as well as several workshops and tutorials on various aspects on the research and development of cyber-physical systems. The paper submission deadlines for IPSN 2010 are as follows:
Two papers from the SPAN lab that were accepted to the 2009 Virginia Tech Wireless Symposium have been posted to the publications page in PDF format. They are:
Dustin Maas and Neal Patwari's abstract entitled "Location Distinction in a MIMO Channel" has been accepted to the Virginia Tech 2009 Wireless Symposium. This paper shows that location distinction techniques can be applied to a MIMO channel and that the performance of these techniques in a MIMO channel is significantly better than that of a SISO channel.
Joey Wilson and Neal Patwari's abstract entitled "Regularization Methods for Radio Tomographic Imaging" has been accepted to the Virginia Tech 2009 Wireless Symposium. This paper applies regularization methods such as Tikhonov, H1, Truncated SVD, and Total Variation to the radio tomographic imaging problem, and shows how each method results in different image characteristics.
