IEEE Communications Society Heinrich Hertz Award for Best Communications Letter

The award “is given to an outstanding manuscript published in any letter journal financially sponsored or co-sponsored by the Communications Society during the previous 3 calendar years which opens new lines of research, envisions bold approaches to communication, formulates new problems to solve, and essentially enlarges the field of communications engineering.  Recipients need not be IEEE members.”  Jeff and Harpreet were recognized for their paper “Downlink Rate Distribution in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks under Generalized Cell Selection”, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, Volume 3, No. 1, pp. 42-45, February 2014. Harpreet is an assistant professor at Virginia Tech.
Jeff and Harpreet will receive the award at the IEEE ICC 2016  conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in late May.
