                      PH.D. COURSE

           STREAMING VIDEO FOR WIRELESS NETWORKS

                 Prof. K.J. Ray Liu
      Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and
              Institute for Systems Research
      University of Maryland, College Park, MD

    COURSE OBJECTIVE:
    The objective of this course is to introduce the major
    standards and signal processing methods necessary for
    video streaming systems in wireless networks. This
    includes the MPEG family of standards for transporting
    video, images, audio, speech and graphics through a
    network, and carrying out joint source and channel coding
    for a wireless channel.

    The course is scheduled as a series of lectures before
    noon and exercise work on selected course material in the
    afternoon.

    COURSE PERIOD: Thursday 17 - Wednesday 23, May 2001.

    THE LECTURER:
    Dr. Liu is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
    Department and Institute for Systems Research of University of
    Maryland, College Park.
    He has a Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Los Angeles,
    in electrical engineering. His research interests span broad aspects
    of signal processing and communications including signal processing
    algorithms and architectures, image and video processing, wireless
    communications and networking, and medical and biomedical technology.
    He holds five US patents and has published over 200 papers.
    Among others he received the Best Paper Award from IEEE 50th
    Vehicular Technology Conference (IEEE VTC), Amsterdam, 1999.
