Online Talk on “An Introduction to Optimization in Wireless Networks”
Dr. Joaquin Escudero Garzás, Visiting Professor, University Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), Spain
The need for optimizing resource management (e.g., transmit power, channels, users) has been a constant concern in mobile communication networks and has exacerbated in 5G, where massive number of users and wide range of services are expected. The talk will provide fundamentals on the optimization process and the differences between continuous and integer optimization. The talk will also discuss some approaches to resource allocation with application in MIMO systems, dynamic spectrum allocation, OFDM communications, and spectral efficiency in 5G.
J.J. Escudero-Garzás received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). He is currently with the Department of Signal Theory and Communications, UC3M. From 1997 to 2002, he worked for Spanish telcos as a Provisioning Engineer and as the Head of the Communications Network Maintenance Department. He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2010-2012), and a Visiting Researcher with the University of Virginia (2013), the University of Florida (2017), and Texas A&M University (2018-2019). He has published around 40 contributions in international journals and conference proceedings. He has participated in 5 international research projects (3 of them in the USA) and more than 15 national projects and contracts with the industry. His research interests include optimization of wireless communication systems and resource management for 5G networks.
