Join us Friday at 12:00 for the weekly pizza talk. This week the pizza talk is in room PKI 377. The pizza talk is an informal event to showcase research being done around PKI.

This week's topic is:

Chip Interleaved Multirate and Multimedia Transmission in Self-Encoded Communication System with Iterative Detection over Fading Channels
Liang Chi

In a SEMM system, multiple applications transmit their information simultaneously with different bit rates. The spreading method of each application is self-encoded spreading spectrum (SESS), where the spreading codes are derived from the previously transmitted bits rather than a pseudorandom code generator. Block chip interleaving is employed at the transmitter to combat deep fading over the channels. At the receiver, a decorrelation scheme separates the combined signals to reduce the crosstalk between different applications and provides a better estimation for the despreading sequence. Interference cancelation (IC) is also adopted to improve both the correlation detection and iterative detection (ID) performance.

At the banquet the IEEE chapter awarded a plaque to the outstanding Computer and Electronics Engineering faculty member. Votes from all students were collected from each class. Seniors' votes had a weight of four, juniors' three, etc.

This years winner was Roger Sash, who is also the chapter adviser. This years runner-up was Dr. Lim Nguyen.

Past winners:
2007- Dr. Hamid Sharif
2006- Roger Sash

2009-2010 Officer

Starting in May the following officers were installed:

President (Chair)- Nicholas Spintig
Vice-President (Vice-Chair) Zachary Booth
Secretary- Scott Kenealy
Treasury- Ronnie Tyson
Parts Manager- Aaron Mills

Good luck to the officer team, may they keep the chapter involved and interesting.
