Ok, I know it seems unbelievable that a hat trick of best student paper awards could actually happen in one year but it did…

Please join me in congratulating Kaibin Huang (special mention to Bishwarup Mondal, former student) for winning the best student paper award in Communication Systems at GLOBECOM in San Francisco for the paper

K. Huang, B. Mondal, R. W. Heath, Jr., and J. G. Andrews, “Multi-Antenna Limited Feedback for Temporally-Correlated Channels: Feedback Compression,'’ accepted to Proc. of IEEE Global Telecommunications Conf., Nov. 27 - Dec. 1, San Francisco, CA, USA.

The award decision was based on (i) paper evaluations and (ii) on the oral presentation. There was a group of judges that made the final decision on oral presentations.

Great job Kaibin! I think there is a cash award that will naturally be spent on a gift for his wife and something for us.
