The 2018 Wireless @ Virginia Tech Research Symposium will be a day-long event including exciting keynote and research presentations on the latest advances and research in wireless communications and networking from special guests from industry and government plus Virginia Tech’s own faculty experts. In addition to these presentations, the day will feature posters highlighting the latest work in wireless communications, demonstrations, and opportunities for networking with other attendees, keynote speakers, Virginia Tech faculty, and Virginia Tech students.
Our program this year will center around three themes: 5G and beyond 5G cellular networks; Internet of Things and Cyber-physical System Security; and Next Generation Software Defined Radios. Our keynote speakers will be Dr. Thomas Rondeau, Program Manager at DARPA; and Dr. Charlie Zhang, Vice President at Samsung Research America. Third speaker TBA at a later date.
Research presentations will also be conducted by more than a dozen Wireless @ Virginia Tech faculty. Posters will be presented by Wireless @ Virginia Tech faculty and students, students from the Hume Center at Virginia Tech, and the Virginia Tech Applied Research Corporation. There will also be a small number of hands-on demonstrations.
