Lattice Codes for the Multiple-access Relay Channel
BY Prof. Hsuan-Jung Su
Dept. of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University
In this talk, we consider the multiple-access relay channel (MARC), in which multiple users transmit messages to a common destination with the assistance of a relay. In a variety of MARC settings, the dynamic decode-and-forward (DDF) protocol is very useful due to its outstanding rate performance. However, the lack of good structured codebooks so far hinders practical applications of DDF for the MARC. We will introduce two classes of lattice codes (for coding at the users as well as the relay) for the MARC aiming at good rate performance and tradeoff between performance and complexity, respectively. A new K-stage coset decoder will also be proposed for the lattice codes to approach the rate performance achievable by unstructured codebooks with maximum-likelihood decoding. Finally, practical short length lattice codes with linear relay coding are designed, which facilitate efficient lattice decoding. When the channels from the users to the relay are weak, DF-based protocol may fail to decode all users at the relay. We then consider lattice coding based on the compute-and-forward (CMF) protocol, where the relay only needs to decode an integer weighted-sum of the users’ lattice codewords, re-encode it with a modulo-based operation, and forward the corresponding codeword. We relax the restriction in the existing works which requires the users to mute when the relay is transmitting. Simulation results show that the proposed schemes outperform existing schemes in terms of outage probabilities and the achievable rates in a variety of channel settings.
Dr. Hsuan-Jung Su is a Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering, National Taiwan University. He is currently visiting Princeton University. Before joining the National Taiwan University in 2003, Dr. Su was with the Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, Holmdel, New Jersey, where he received the Central Bell Labs Teamwork Award in 2002 and the Bell Labs President’s Gold Award in 2003 for his contribution to the 3G wireless network design and standardization. Dr. Su has served on the organizing committees and TPCs of many international conferences, including being the Finance Chair of IEEE ICASSP 2009, the Finance Co-Chair and a TPC Track Chair of IEEE VTC 2010 Spring, a TPC Co-Chair of WPMC 2012, a TPC Co-Chair of IEEE GreenCom 2014, and a TPC Co-Chair of WOCC 2015. He is also an Area Editor of the Physical Communication (PHYCOM) journal (Elsevier), and currently the Chair of IEEE Information Theory Society, Taipei Chapter, and the Secretary and Treasurer of the IEEE Communications Society Asia-Pacific Board. Dr. Su received the B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering from the National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan, in 1992, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1996 and 1999, respectively.

Integer Linear Programming Based Statistical Techniques for Causal Inference
BY Md. Noor-E-Alam
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
This talk will address a topic in a cutting edge field, which is operations research techniques applied to problems in data analytics. This is an emerging interdisciplinary field of research, as organizations are fiercely struggling to realize valuable information from large-scale data that are being accumulated continuously in business, healthcare, Internet marketing, and governance. These observational data are increasingly used for understanding important cause and effect relationships. For example, we might want to know whether a particular drug causes a significant side effect or whether a public health policy has a profound impact on health status, or we might want to know whether a view of an Internet advertisement results in an increased chance of purchase. This research developed a methodological frameworks to solve such critical problems with ILP based statistical techniques. One of the key idea is to develop robust techniques to handle uncertainty in data driven decision making, particularly as applied to healthcare. This involves development of mathematical models and their solution techniques using operations research methods.
Noor is working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, affiliated with Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), Operations Research Center (ORC), and Sloan School of Management. He has completed his PhD in Engineering Management in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta (UofA) in 2013. His previous works on "multi-criteria decision making" and "advanced integer linear programming techniques for large-scale grid based location problems" have appeared in several top-tier journals, including "European Journal of Operational Research" and "Knowledge-Based Systems". His current research interests lie in the intersection of operations research and data analytics, particularly as applied to healthcare, manufacturing systems and supply chain. Prior coming to the UofA, he served as a faculty member (first as a Lecturer and then as an Assistant Professor) in the Department of Industrial and Production Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET). He also previously received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Industrial and Production Engineering from BUET. He is the receipt of many prestigious awards including NSERC PDF and Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Scholarship.

Babbio 122, Stevens Institute of Technology
ABSTRACT: Naomi Oreskes will discuss her blockbuster book Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming, which documents how a loose-knit group of high-level scientists and scientific advisers, with deep connections in politics and industry, has misled the public on the dangers of tobacco, acid rain, the ozone hole, DDT and global warming. The book, co-authored with Erik Conway, has inspired a major documentary from Sony Pictures. Nobel Laureate and former Vice President Al Gore said that "anyone concerned about the state of democracy in America should read this book.”
BIOGRAPHY: Naomi Oreskes is a professor of the History of Science and an affiliated professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. She received her PhD at Stanford in 1990 in the Graduate Special Program in Geological Research and History of Science. In her 2004 paper published in Science, "Beyond the Ivory Tower: The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change,” Oreskes analyzed nearly 1,000 scientific journals to directly assess the magnitude of scientific consensus around anthropogenic climate change. The paper was famously cited by Al Gore in his film An Inconvenient Truth and led Oreskes to testify in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Oreskes is the co-author of the 2014 book The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View from the Future, which looks back at the present from the year 2093.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Science Writings and the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology.

Howe School Alliance for Technology Management Roundtable
Operating at faster speed – ‘higher velocity’ – is often associated with organizational success. Yet organizations “slow down,” for a number of reasons. As Steven Spear proclaimed in The High Velocity Edge, highly successful organizations in a wide variety of fields can be distinguished from less successful ones in terms of the speed at which they “create and deploy useful knowledge.” Attempts to increase velocity, however, have also been associated with taking unnecessary risks, and often require difficult cultural and systemic changes.
