LNT & DLR Summer Workshop on Coding (2016)

The workshop on July 26, 2016 has researchers and visitors of DLR and LNT discuss recent advances in channel coding, modulation, and random access. The workshop consists of technical talks, coffee breaks for discussions, and a visit to a beer garden to network and enjoy summertime in Munich. The workshop will be held at the Institute for Communications Engineering of the Technical University of Munich. Please register by sending an Email to georg.boecherer@tum.de.

We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!

Gianluigi Liva, Georg Böcherer
