ESoA third in a series course on Antennas and Propagation for Body-Centric Wireless Communications

1 July 2013

Time: 9:00 - 12:00am
Venue: EECS Computer Science Building Queen Mary, University of London Mile End London UK E1 4NSThe European School of Antennas (ESoA) presents a third course in a series on Antennas & Propagation for Body-Centric Wireless Communication. The course addresses the main issues related to body-centric wireless communications from antennas and radio propagation prospective including measurement techniques, statistical analysis, analytical and numerical studies and system-related aspects of such communication networks. The course will introduce the current state-of-the-art and potential development in the area including challenges and theoretical limitations. Concepts such as diversity antennas, textile electronics, mm-wave systems, Ultra Wideband communications, etc. will be covered in this course with relation to theoretical and practical aspects. The course will also include a lab session organised and run by CST! More on the following link http://www.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/group/antennas/ESoA_BCWC.html
