Seminar on spectrum sensing methods

07.05.2014 17:34

Today I gave a short seminar on spectrum sensing at the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School. It contained a quick overview of the topic: what spectrum sensing is, what are the most common methods that are used in the context of dynamic spectrum access and how they can be implemented in practice.

Spectrum sensing methods and implementations title slide.

I couldn't go into much detail in the short time provided, but I've written a paper that goes with the talk and covers a bit more. The version on the School's website has reasonably unreadable formatting, so I'm publishing my original copy here. Of course, you can also download the slides.

When I first attended one of these seminars, I was somewhat surprised by the format. I haven't seen anywhere else that questions from the audience are written on slips of paper that are then passed over to the speaker to read and answer.

I sometimes attend seminars on interesting topics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics across the street from IJS. For example, there the Q&A is a normal human discussion between peers. The presentations are around 45 minutes while here I've heard a comment that they should be shortened to only 15 minutes.

I'm not sure about the reasoning behind these choices at IPS, but I can say that I like the common version better. If not for anything else, because I would not be hesitant to invite people that don't need mandatory attendance to join us.
