The IEEE VTS-UKRI Chapter held a meeting on the 19 April at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. This meeting was in collaboration with European Wireless 2013, www.ew2013.org, which took place at the University of Surrey on the previous three days. The topic of the meeting was “Physical Layer Techniques for 5G Wireless Access Networks”, under which a guest lecture was given by Dr. Tadashi Matsumoto, of the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. Various other lectures and discussions on this topic were also held, as well a social activity taking place.
The meeting was held in the “BB” building of the Stag Hill Campus, which can be located at the following link: www.surrey.ac.uk/files/pdf/campusmap.pdf.
