Asst. Prof. Ertuğrul Başar to be Presented the Best Paper Award by ICC 2016
May 17, 2016

ITU Electronics and Communication Engineering Department Asst. Prof. Ertuğrul Başar, Erdal Panayırcı from Kadir Has University, Murat Uysal from Özyeğin University and Harald Haas from Edinburgh University will be presented with the Best Paper Award by IEEE International Conference On Communications 2016 (ICC 2016) to be held on 23-27 May 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, for the paper titled “Generalized LED Index Modulation Optical OFDM for MIMO Visible Light Communications Systems”.
The paper completed by Başar proposes a generalized light emitting diode (LED) index modulation scheme for multiple input light communications (VLC) systems. The proposed scheme generalizes the LED index modulation concept to transmit complex signals through VLC channels by separating these signals into their real-imaginary and positive-negative parts. The proposed VLC system achieves considerably better performance than the existing optic systems.
We congratulate Asst. Prof. Ertuğrul Başar on winning the Best Paper Award at IEEE International Conference On Communications 2016, the most prominent conference on telecommunications in the world with a very broad participation, and wish him continued success.
