DIMACS Workshop on Signal Processing for Wireless Transmission

October 7-9, 2002
CoRE Building Auditorium, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ.

Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on Computational Information Theory and Coding.

In contrast to the voiceband telephone channel, the wireless channel suffers from interference from other users and from fading due to destructive addition due to multipath propagation. The aim of this workshop is to explore the ultimate limits that information theory puts on spectral efficiency, as well as the best means of striving toward that efficiency. Multiuser detection and ``Dirty Paper Coding" are among the key signal processing countermeasures that promise substantial improvements over existing systems. This workshop will investigate such approaches from both a link and network level perspective. The enhancements from multiple antennas will also be explored, including means of space-time coding.
