18th Joint Workshop on Communications and Coding (JWCC)

On March 13-15, 2017, doctoral students and professors from the TUM chairs LNT, LÜT, COD, from University of Stuttgart and from Graz University of Technology will get together for the 18th Joint Workshop on Communications and Coding (JWCC), informally known as the Coding & Skiing workshop. JWCC is a somewhat different conference. It combines our favorite activities: research and winter sports. The 2017 event will be held at Gasthof Grimmingblick on the Planneralm in Austria.
