WRC student receives best poster award in AusCTW 2016
Mr Tri Pham, a PhD student in WRC, received the best poster award in the 2016 Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW) held at Monash University, Melbourne. AusCTW brings together researchers and post-graduate students in telecommunication for two and a half days of technical presentations and networking. Students are to submit their original and unpublished research contributions in the form of papers, which are subjected to peer reviewing process. If accepted, students present their works in the form of technical posters. Tri's poster in designing advanced receiver for 4G-LTE network was awarded the best poster based on its technical contribution and clarity. Tri was also awarded the travel grant for traveling to the AusCTW 2016 and the 2016 Australian Information Theory School (AusITS).
