ITR Hosts Key International Visitor

With a commitment to international collaborations and operating on the world stage, ITR this week hosts Professor Gerhard Kramer, Alexander von Humboldt Professor and Head of the Institute for Communications Engineering, Technical University of Munich.

Professor Kramer will be at the Mawson Lakes campus from July 30 through August 3 to work with Dr Ingmar Land on their joint ARC Discovery Project: Compression of distributed data: Bridging the gap between theory and practice.

In bushfire and tsunami early warning systems, environmental monitoring and healthcare applications, distributed sensors collect and transmit correlated data.  This research project will design novel data compression algorithms that exploit this correlation to dramatically increase the performance of existing networks and enable new applications.

Gerhard Kramer was awarded the Vodafone Innovations Prize in 2011 for research that has advanced mobile communications. In 2010 he received an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship endowed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

ITR is delighted to host Professor Kramer, he will be presenting a seminar Tuesday July 31 at Mawson Lakes.
