The publication “Multi-Hop-Aware Cooperative Relaying” by Helmut Adam, Christian Bettstetter, and Sidi Mohammed Senouci received the Best Student Paper Award at the 69th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC).
Helmut Adam is working towards his dissertation in the area of cooperative relaying, a new wireless communication technique promising significant gains in throughput and energy-efficiency. The awarded paper proposes a concept to exploit routing information in the relay selection protocol. The work is an outcome of a bilateral project between the University of Klagenfurt and France Telecom’s Orange Labs.
VTC is the semiannual conference of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. VTC Spring 2009 took place in Barcelona from 26 to 29 April 2009, featuring 656 research papers, several panels and invited talks.
