Papers by Ruoshui Liu et al. and Bogdan Roman et al. were accepted at PIMRC'09

Friday 17 July 2009

Two papers have been accepted for publication in the proceedings of the 20th IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor, Mobile and Radio Communications (PIMRC). The first paper, entitled "Frequency diversity measurements at 2.4 GHz for wireless sensor networks deployed in tunnels" is a joint work between Ruoshui Liu, Yan Wu, Ian J. Wassell and Kenichi Soga. The authors of the second paper, whose topic is "Evaluation of multi-carrier burst contention and IEEE 802.11 with fading during channel sensing" are Bogdan Roman, Ioannis Chatzigeorgiou, Ian J. Wassell and Frank Stajano. This year, PIMRC will be held in Tokyo, Japan, between the 13th and 16th of September.
