Research in Telecom

Synopsis of the research area

Academic Research

The deliverable of academic research are research papers published in journal and conference proceedings. The research shall have innovative ideas with theoretical foundation. The results should have the potential for research grants. The topic may be pursued by students to pursue a PhD degree.

Application Research

The deliverables of application research are invited talks, tutorials, and conference papers. The research is to identify practical values and applications to the industry. The major justification is not innovation but practicality for the cost and benefit of a new technology. The topic may be pursued by students for a Master project (TDC696) or an independent study project (TDC597).
