(Oct. 9) Molecular Communications: Theory, Practice and Challenges

Last updated :2017-10-09

Topic: Molecular Communications: Theory, Practice and Challenges
Speaker: Prof. Lie-Liang Yang
( University of Southampton)
Moderator: Prof. LIU Xingcheng
Time: 9:00-12:00 am, Monday, October 9, 2017
Venue: 101 Lecture Room, School of Electronics and Information Technology, Guangzhou East Campus, SYSU

Molecular Communications (MC) has been recognized as an attractive solution for information exchange between nano-machines and in nano-scale networks operated in fluid environment. By taking its potential advantages of bio-compatibility and low energy consumption, MC is expected to find a lot of applications in the areas where the operation of conventional electromagnetic based communications is inefficient and/or impractical. Potential applications of MC may include health-care, intelligent drug delivery, environment monitoring, military, industry applications, Internet of Nano Things (IoNT), etc. This tutorial lecture will provide a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art of MC. The fundamentals of MC and the channel modelling, information modulation, transceiver techniques, error-control, multiple-access, etc. in diffusive MC will be addressed. We will emphasize the similarity and difference between MC and the conventional electromagnetic based communications. Furthermore, the challenges and opportunities of MC will be discussed.

Professor Yang’s Bio:
Lie-Liang Yang received his PhD degree in communications and electronics from Northern (Beijing) Jiaotong University, Beijing, China in 1997.
