Just found out today that we won an award for the ITMANET program! This is early news and the amount isn’t finalized yet but the budget submitted was more than $6M dollars. The mission of the ITMANET program is to develop and exploit more powerful information theory concerning mobile wireless networks. Our proposal, led by Prof. Jeff Andrews and with several Co-PI’s including Sanjay Shakkottai and Peter Stone from UT Austin, Dina Katabi from MIT, Aylin Yener from Penn State, Randal Berry and Dongning Guo from Northwestern, Michael Neely from USC, Nihar Jindal from U Minnessota, Syed Jafar from UC Irvine, and Martin Haenggi from Notre Dame, was built around a concept called non-equilibrium information theory. My role involves research on feedback in multi-hop networks, MIMO multi-hop protocols, the MIMO relay channel, as well as some experimental work. More information will come in the next few weeks. Needless to say this underscores the need to put more energy on multi-hop research problems in WSIL.
