Two papers at CWIT

I have two papers at this week's Canadian Workshop on Information Theory in Kelowna:

1. Lu Cui and Andrew W. Eckford, "The delay selector channel: Definition and capacity bounds"
Session: Coding and Information Theory I, Wednesday May 18, 9:00-10:40 AM

This is work from Lu's master's thesis [PDF]. The "delay selector channel" is a discrete-time channel model that captures some of the features of molecular communication with Brownian motion. The main contribution of this paper is a closed-form lower bound on the channel capacity.

2. Josephine P. K. Chu, Andrew W. Eckford, and Raviraj S. Adve, "Distributed optimization of the Bhattacharyya parameter in wireless relay networks"
Session: Relay Assisted Communication, Thursday May 19, 2:00-3:20 PM

This is work from Josephine's Ph.D. thesis. We give an iterative, distributed solution to the non-convex multi-source, multi-relay resource allocation problem, where the objective is to optimize the Bhattacharyya parameter for each source's transmission.

Paper PDFs will be posted shortly. I will be in Kelowna and presenting both papers.
