Mary Adedoyin has received the best student paper award at the 28th Annual IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (IEEE PIMRC 2017) held at Hotel Bonaventure, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from 8th to 13th October 2017, under the theme “Engaged Citizens and their New Smart Worlds”. IEEE PIMRC is one of the premier conferences in the wireless research arena and has a long history of bringing together academia, industry and regulatory bodies. Today, it has become one of IEEE Communication Society’s flagship conferences in telecommunications. IEEE PIMRC 2017 accepted 620 papers from over 50 countries for oral presentation at the conference. The regular technical sessions are divided into four tracks:
The paper, titled "QoS-Aware Radio Resource Allocation for Ultra-dense Heterogeneous Networks" falls under track 3 and proposes a QoS-aware radio resource allocation algorithm for a cognitive femtocell to minimize cross-tier and co-tier interference, and to provide QoS guarantees for different users in ultra-dense heterogeneous wireless networks. Mary Adedoyin co-authored the paper with her supervisor, A/Prof. Olabisi Falowo.
