Talk by Dr. Octavia DOBRE (IEEE Fellow and Professor at Memorial University, Canada) on 2 May 2023

It has been a great pleasure for the EECE Dept. at Cairo University to welcome Dr. Octavia DOBRE (IEEE Fellow & Professor at Memorial University, Canada) and her accompanying delegate, within the department premises. Professor DOBRE and her delegate met with EECE Staff in the Council Meeting Room at 4.00 pm where she kindly made a brief presnetation of Memorial University and its Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Then, Professor DOBRE made a very interesting and comprehensive presentation - that was attended by EECE Staff and EECE students - with the following details:

Date and Time: Tuesday, 2 may 2023 - 05:15 pm

Place:  Hall 8202 (Hammam Lecture Room)

Full Duplex Communications for the Next Generation Wireless Networks

Abstract :

With work on the 3GPP Release 18 ongoing, 5G-Advanced is on its way. An unprecedented proliferation of new Internet-of-everything services is continuing, such as extended reality, aerial vehicles, automation of industry, and connected autonomous systems, leading to the digital transformation of the society. In the last few years, the research community has started to look toward the next generation (6G) of wireless network, which aims to bring us closer to the fully connected, intelligent digital world of the future.

This talk will briefly discuss the vision for 6G wireless networks, and then focus on the full duplex technology which theoretically doubles the sum rate and enables reduced latency. In particular, different machine learning-based methods will be presented to tackle the critical self-interference problem in full duplex transceivers. Results from measurements will be presented. The talk will conclude with directions for future investigation in the next generation wireless networks.
