Keynote: "Should I Work on Wireless Networks?" Advice for Early-Career Graduate Students

Kyle Jamieson, University College London (UCL)

Slides (pdf)

Chair: Davut Incebacak


This talk is aimed at early-career graduate students who are in the process of making the decision of where to focus their doctoral studies. Reviewing the basics of the field, I will describe what makes wireless networks hard and exciting, what constitutes a good research question in wireless networks, and what defines success in wireless research. At the end of the talk I will propose four heuristics for choosing interesting wireless research problems.
