2019 Research Review


Village 15


Theresa Lachman


Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 20 for our annual Center for Wireless Communications Research Review, a thoughtful and provocative discussion of some of the most promising innovations for a more connected world.  Hear directly from CWC researchers about current and ongoing CWC research into Circuits for 5G communications, mmWave, Networking, Wireless AR/VR, Connected Health, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, the path to 6G networks and more. Student lightning talks and a poster session round out the agenda. CWC Board Members, colleagues and guests, along with faculty and students, are all invited to join us at UC San Diego’s Village 15 for this day-long look at new applications and user experiences made possible by the exciting new developments in connected technology. Registration is now open!
