The 2018 Wireless @ Virginia Tech Symposium was held on Friday, April 27 at the Executive Briefing Center of the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington. More than 110 participants enjoyed the day filled with keynotes, faculty research presentations, posters, demos, and networking.
DARPA Program Manager Dr. Thomas Rondeau started the day with an inspirational talk connecting software radio to science fiction; VP of Samsung Research America Dr. Charlie Zhang made an exciting presentation on making 5G networks a reality; and NIST’s Chief Cybersecurity Advisor Donna Dodson brought to life the multi-faceted challenges of security the internet of things in the real world. Meanwhile, building on the themes of our keynote speakers, a dozen Virginia Tech faculty made presentations about ongoing research activities in wireless, and more than 52 posters were presented, mostly by Virginia Tech students. In the midst of all of that, symposium participants were able to discuss the latest advances in wireless over coffee breaks, snacks, and lunch. Feedback on the event has been extraordinary, and we look forward to building upon the success of this event next year!
