This program supports research into all aspects of communication science and technology in order to facilitate the efficient representation and transmission of information to approach theoretical limits more closely than ever before. This includes efficient representation of information sources, computationally efficient retrieval of information, modern modulation and coding techniques exploiting the temporal and spatial redundancy of channels, power-aware techniques, resource allocation algorithms working across network layers, physical layer security methods, and so on.
Mobile wireless network applications, optical communication technologies, multimedia information sources, and quantum information processing possibilities are all motivating new communication techniques of interest to the program. Also of interest are interdisciplinary projects, particularly at the interface between communication and other CISE programs in which new perspectives can contribute to communications issues.
