This summer term the block seminar named "The engineer as manager" took place during the excursion week. Since 2009, this seminar, which is highly attractive for students, has been offered by Dr. Joachim Schläper in the Institute of Communication Systems twice a year.
At the International Conference on Military Communications and Information Systems 2018 in Warsaw, our graduate Souradip Saha, M.Sc., has been awarded with the Award Best Paper by Young Scientists for his contribution named “Bit Interleaved Polar Coded Modulation with Iterative Decoding”. This publication is directly related to his master thesis, which was supervised in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics (FKIE).
The seminar Selected Topics in Communications Engineering is jointly organized by IENT and IKS. This year, participating students worked out different aspects of the topic "Scene Analysis for Audio-Visual Content". Apart from the technical and scientific contents, also presentation skills were practiced. Eventually, participants informed each other about their results in technical lectures.
Invited by the Aachen Symphony Orchestra, we contributed to the Future Lab Gala this year. The challenge was to inspire the Aachen audience for the subject of communication systems. In this, for us quite unusual format we reported in a generally understandable way about our current research topics, in particular about our cooperation project with the Aachen Symphony Orchestra.
The joint project of the IKS and the Symphony Orchestra Aachen will be part of the program at the Future Lab Gala 2018 in the Aachen theatre. In this event, scientists report vividly and comprehensibly on their latest research topics.
