The Broadband Wireless Access and Applications Center (BWAC) is a multi-university research and development center connecting the wireless industry and government agencies with faculty and students at the University of Arizona (Lead), The Catholic University of America, University of Mississippi, University of Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. The purpose of BWAC’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB) meeting is to foster regular interactions and long-term relationships among the partners, prioritize cooperative research directions, and adapt the research activities and student training to address market needs.
Our current research themes are:
- Massive Spectrum: Aggregation, Coexistence, Millimeter Waves
- Resilient Wireless Networking: Disaster Recovery, Security
The theme for the current 2017 Fall IAB meeting, hosted by the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame is ‘Large Scale Experimental Wireless‘ and is aligned with NSF’s Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR: www.advancedwireless.org) to foster fundamental research and development to enable future advanced wireless networks through city-scale experimental research platforms.
This year’s meeting objectives include:
- Provide expert seminars on ‘Large Scale Experimental Wireless’
- Provide a forum to share updates on current research projects
- Facilitate further collaboration towards multi-site projects solving complex challenges
- Facilitate planning for center growth and Phase II transition
- Poster Session – Student lead discussions
