About this event


(Ultra) low latency communications are becoming increasingly important as fundamental communication technology for most of emerging low-latency applications. Traditionally, the focus of wireless communication system had been on increasing the system throughput and the performance analysis and design methods had been developed for the said focus. However, if the system is constrained by its experienced latency, a paradigm shift in the analysis would be required. In this talk, I cover some of the useful mathematical tools for such systems and some of the insight we can get from using these methods.



Leila Musavian  received her Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications from Kings College London, UK, in 2006. She is currently working as a Reader and the school deputy director of research at the School of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, University of Essex.  Prior to that, she was a Lecturer at InfoLab21, Lancaster University (2012-2016), Research Associate at McGill University (2011-2012), and post-doctoral fellow at INRS-EMT, Canada. Her research interests lie in Radio Resource Management for next generation wireless networks, low latency communication, URLLC, CRNs, Energy Harvesting, energy-efficient transmission techniques, cross-layer design for delay QoS provisioning and 5G systems. She is an editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, Executive Editor of Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies and Associate Editor of Wiley’s Internet Technology Letters.
