Secrecy performance of wireless powered communication network

Inkyu Lee
School of Electrical Engineering, Korea University

Abstract: In this talk, we first review radio frequency (RF) based wireless power transfer techniques. Then, we examine a multi-user wireless powered communication network (WPCN) with an energy harvesting (EH) jammer. In the presence of an eavesdropper, a hybrid access-point (H-AP) first broadcasts an energy signal to EH users in an energy transmission (ET) phase, while each of them subsequently transmits its individual message to the H-AP in a time division multiple access manner during an information transmission (IT) phase. At the same time, the EH jammer simultaneously generates artificial noises to keep the messages confidential. We propose an efficient time allocation method for ET and IT phases so as to minimize the secrecy outage probability in the absence of the eavesdropper's instantaneous channel state information. Finally, we evaluate the performance of our proposed solutions through simulations.

Advanced Electronic and Photonic Materials and Devices for Next-Generation Integrated System

Seongjae Cho
Assistant Professor, Department of Electronics Engineering, Gachon University

Abstract: Recently, high-speed and low-power capabilities of electronic system are more increasingly required due to the growing demand on mobile electronic appliances and ultra-fast processing units. Although functional materials and devices have been suggested and studied in wide variety for the goal, Si compatibility has been considered as one of the indispensable prerequisites in realizing the technologies, owing to cost-effectiveness and high maturity of Si processing. In this talk, Si-compatible materials, with a particular interest in Group-IV materials, and electronic/photonic devices having implementation feasibility on the platform are demonstrated. Various aspects of the new technologies are addressed covering atomic-level simulation, device design, and circuit-level compact modeling, and system performance prediction by showing theoretical and experimental results. A perspective on the advanced Si integrated system touched by light lies throughout the talk.

Graph signal processing: Recent progress and applications

Yuichi Tanaka
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology / JST PRESTO

Abstract: Graph signal processing (GSP) is an emerging field of signal and information processing. It aims to analyze, compress, learn, and restore data located on complex (and possibly large-scale) networks. There are many potential applications in sensor networks including IoT, smart grid, biomedical engineering, machine learning, computer vision/graphics, pattern recognition, bioinformatics, and geographic information systems. In this talk, I will first introduce fundamentals of graph signal processing such as graph Fourier transform and filtering on graphs. Then some recent works in GSP in the graph spectral (graph Fourier) domain will be presented, which include wavelet/filter bank design, graph signal denoising, sensor placement in the GSP perspective, and EEG signal classification.
