This week, Globecom 2023 will be taking place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. On top of paper presentations and workshops, Prof. Muriel Médard will be giving a keynote alongside six other experts in the field of global communications. Below are the presentations that are related to Muriel’s work and/or she will be attending during this conference:

  • Dec 6th, from 11:30 – 12:00 PM: Keynote #4, given by Professor Muriel Médard
    • Located in Hall 8 (A,B) in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre
    • Abstract: What is the role of standards in future communications? In this talk, we present a vision of standards to help ensure both reliability and room for innovation. We argue that standards can successfully concentrate on purely functional matters, relying on modular APIs, rather than being prescriptive about methods, which often embed highly inefficient legacy technologies at a time when such waste is no longer tenable. We provide concrete illustrations of the possibilities of this construct, based on reliable transport with network coding and on universal decoding chips.
  • Dec 6th, from 2:00 – 3:30 PM: CT3: Age of Information
    • Room 403
    • Title: “Using channel correlation to improve decoding – ORBGRAND-AI.” Ken R. Duffy (Northeastern University, USA); Moritz Grundei (Technische Universität München, Germany); Muriel Médard (MIT, USA)
    • 5th paper presenting
  • Dec 8th, from 9:00 – 12:30 and 2:00 – 3:30 PM: WS16:3: Channel Coding 3
    • Room 406
    • Presentation title: “Guessing Random Additive Noise Decoding with Quantized Soft Information,” Peihong Yuan (MIT, USA); Ken R. Duffy (Northeastern University, USA); Evan Gabhart and Muriel Médard (MIT, USA)

Please note that all times in this post are in Malaysia’s timezone, or GMT +8. Two papers have already been presented, one by collaborator Kevin Galligan, who discussed the paper “Upgrade Error Detection to Prediction w/ GRAND” in the Coding Theory 1 session, as well as a Technical Session that discussed “Soft Detection Physical Layer Insecurity.” GlobeCom is packed with events, so be sure to check out more about the program at this link here!
