  • The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has announced that it is honoring Professor Piotr Indyk and Professor Dina Katabi for their innovations in computing technology. Indyk has been named one of the recipients of the Paris Kanellakis Theory and Practice Award, which honors specific theoretical accomplishments that have had a significant and demonstrable effect on the practice of computing. Katabi has been honored as one of the recipients of the Grace Murray Hopper Award, which recognizes the outstanding young computer professionals of the year.
  • In a "fireside" chat forum, Wireless@MIT co-directors and professors in the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, Dina Katabi and Hari Balakrishnan discussed spectrum and wireless policies with US Federal Communications Commission head Julius Genachowski at the Kirsch Auditorium in the Stata Center, Thursday, March 7, 2013.
  • On Wednesday, March 6 at 4:00 PM, Julius Genachowski, Chairman of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will answer questions about wireless spectrum - including spectrum sharing, spectrum access and allocation, and the impact of the spectrum crunch on the wireless industry - during a Fireside Chat with Professor Hari Balakrishnan and Professor Dina Katabi, co-directors of the MIT Center for Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing (Wireless@MIT). Stata Center, Kirsch Auditorium, 32-123.
  • Trying to build a new circuit that would use an emerging technology called compressed sensing has taken on a renewed focus under the work of members of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT including EECS graduate student Omid Abari. With researchers in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT (RLE) and in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) Obari is seeking to balance theory with chip building realities using new evaluation algorithms to allow creation of the ideal circuit.
  • Yury Polyanskiy, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science in the MIT EECS Department (since July 2011) and principal investigator in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT, has been selected for a Career Award by the National Science Foundation. His work titled "Information Theory Beyond Capacity" will advance the state-of-the-art in the fundamental limits of delay-constrained wireless communication, as well as develop abstract topics in information theory on complex graphs.

  • Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan announced on Jan. 21, 2013, the appointment of Professor Gregory Wornell for the Sumitomo Electric Industries Professorship of Engineering. Greg Wornell is a recognized leader in the fields of signal processing and information theory.
  • In celebration of its 40th anniversary, the EE Times is recognizing the innovators who made the electronics industry what it is today and particularly the visionaries who are creating new paths. Several members of the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department are among the ten visionaries selected including Rodney Brooks and Wireless@MIT. Read more.
  • The MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department held a reception, October 18, to celebrate the official launch of the new SuperUROP undergraduate research program. Members of the inaugural class of the SuperUROP program, sponsors (and donors), MIT administrators who contributed to its implementation, and EECS faculty mentors and guests, joined EECS Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan in the Stata Center R&D Dining area to celebrate. Read more and view photos of the event and the 6.UAR class held just before the reception.
  • Muriel Médard, professor of electrical engineering in the EECS Department at MIT and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) has led a team to develop a new way to guarantee more reliable wireless reception. The team has improved wireless bandwidth tenfold by eliminating resending of dropped packets of data, often the source of network clogging. Read more in the Oct. 23, 2012 Technology Review article by David Talbot titled "A Bandwidth Breakthrough. A dash of algebra on wireless networks promises to boost bandwidth tenfold, without new infrastructure."
