Communications and information systems

The following faculty members participate in research related to communications and information systems:

The research area of Communications and Information Systems (CIS) focuses on the most challenging and relevant problems in communications science and information systems. The research sub-areas of the CIS professors spread in all aspects of communications and information systems from theory to practice, including information theory, stochastic processes, statistical signal processing, coding and network codes, multimedia compression, pseudorandom sequences, cryptography, signal and image processing, digital communications, spread spectrum communications, wireless communications, wireless/Internet networking, broadband networks, optical networks, cooperative and cognitive networks, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, space-time communications, wireless security, and communication security. Many of the professors in this area server or have served as Associated Editors (or Chief Editor) for IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, on Communications, on Wireless Communication, and on Vehicular Communications, there are four Canada Research Chairs, and two University Research Chairs. CIS faculty holds several research grants from the federal government, provincial government, and the industrial partners. It offers a wide range of graduate courses in communications, wireless communications, coding, information theory, networks, signal processing, multimedia, and security. As a result, doctoral graduates are well prepared to absorb the latest advances in the field as well as contribute to these advancements and innovations.
