Wireless communication has been considered as a major driving force for various emerging systems and new technologies. In pursuit of even higher communication bandwidth or even broader service range, the investigations of next generation wireless communication system has drawn ever increasing attention these days. Starting from system specs, algorithm, DSP, circuit design to chip implementation, the design of a wireless communication system, however, requires massive domain knowledge and many state-of-the-art design techniques. This leads to a much higher entry barrier than many other research topics. It is thus valuable for the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) to sponsor a summer school program, which provides a comprehensive coverage on the basics, the advanced design issues and the future trends of the next generation wireless communication systems for those students and professionals interested in this area.This summer school is encouraged and supervised by IEEE CASS to carry out this mission. Following the success of the first IEEE CASS Summer School held in Kaohsuing this year, this new program aims to provide both an objective and clear overview and an in-depth analysis of the state-of-the-art research on a variety of emerging digital wireless communication systems. In particular, transceiver designs and their circuit / chip implementations will be emphasized.

Summer School Planning

The summer school will be held in National Chung Hsing University, Taichung, Taiwan starting from Aug. 14 – Aug. 17, 2012. During the 4-day time span, 7 lectures will be delivered by 7 distinguished experts in these fields. Each lecture is 3-hour long and addresses a specific design topic in wireless communication systems. This school provides a valuable opportunity for students, early-stage researchers and young scholar in the CAS society to receive a jump start in the research area of wireless communication circuits and systems. It can also serve an arena for the new comers to get acquaintance with the established experts and for those researchers to communicate their research results.
