WNCG Alum Chun-Hung Liu wins IEEE Best Paper Award

Recent WNCG Alumnus Prof. Chun-Hung Liu won the Best Paper award at the 2014 IEEE Workshop on Heterogeneous and Small Cell Networks, held in conjunction with IEEE Globecom in Austin, Texas.   His paper was entitled "Adaptive Downlink CoMP in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks with Imperfect Overhead Messaging”, which is on utilizing several base stations to coordinate their transmissions to boost signal power and reduce other-cell interference, while having imperfect and limited connections between them. Prof. Liu was the sole author.
