iCore Workshop: 23 December 2015 (Wednesday)
Title: "Wireless Information and Power Transfer"
Venue: Dennis Gabor Seminar Room, 611, level 6, EEE Dept. @ Imperial College

The workshop is dedicated to the hot topic of Wireless Information and Power Transfer (WIPT), which has received significant attention in academia in the past few years. In order to strengthen the research activities in the UK on WIPT, we gather prominent UK researchers in the field to share their recent research progress. The workshop will cover WIPT from both communication/signal processing and RF/circuit perspectives and is aiming at bringing those two communities closer to each other.
