ICCS members, Dr Tongyang Xu and Hedaia Ghannam, have both had papers accepted to the 'recent results' section of the International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications.

The recent results section of the international symposium enables the post-deadline submission of results that have resulted from recent experiments and are of importance to the field. 

Both sets of work are the result of colaborative efforts within ICCS and where undertaken under the supervision of the Institute director Professor Izzat Darwazeh.

Dr Xu's findings address signal interference in the wireless transmission of Internet of Things data, specifically enabling successful data transmission on NB-IoT with up to 100% frequency offset.

Ms Ghannam's work has investigated the transmission of a signal over multiple frequencies, her findings show how the efficient distribution of power over these sub-carrier frequencies can lead to more reliable data transmission.

Professor Darwazeh, Director of ICCS said:

The acceptance of this work in the recent results section of such a prestigious conference really is an acolade to both Hadaia and Tongyang aswell as the entire institute. It shows that work we do has real current significance and is truly state-of-the-art. Hedaia and Tongyang should be very proud of their work​​​​​​.​​​​

The IEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications will be held from the 9th to the 12th of September 2018 in Bologna, Italy.

The overall theme of the symposium will be "Towards a Connected World of People and Things", aligning well with the work of ICCS.
