Student wins prestigious ECE award
Queen's graduate student Saeed Moradi has won the 2008 Best Student Paper Award at the 21st Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE). Co-authors of the paper are professors Tamas Linder (Mathematics and Statistics) and Saeed Gazor (Electrical and Computer Engineering).
The winners were also invited to publish the full version of their paper in a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
In Multiple Description Coding by Successive Quantization, the authors discuss two new design methods for wired or wireless communications. These methods could have implications for transmission of information through communications networks, including techniques to overcome channel impairments and provide more reliability when sensitive multi-media data (such as speech and video) are transmitted.
Saeed Moradi obtained his Master's degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in August 2007. He is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto.
The best paper award was granted at the CCECE 2008 conference, which was held May 4-7, 2008 in Niagara Falls, Canada. CCECE is the flagship conference for researchers, students, and practicing engineers in the area of Electrical and Computer Engineering, from Canada and around the world.
