Wireless Communications & Information Processing (WCIP) Group belongs to Digital Telecommunications Systems and Networks Laboratory of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. It was established in 2004 by Prof. George K. Karagiannidis as Wireless Communications Systems Group (WCSG). In August 2020 its name changed to Wireless Communications & Information Processing (WCIP) Group in order to cover new areas of research as signal processing for biomedical engineering, molecular communications, etc.
WCIP currently consists of one (1) Professor, one (1) postdoctoral researcher, five (5) PhD students, several visitor PhD students and more than ten MSc students. It is a dynamic and particularly active research group that has published hundreds of scientific and technical papers as well it hold several patents.
WCIP conducts fundamental and applied research in the broader fields of Telecommunications Systems and Signal Processing, both independently and by means of more than 30 international collaborations. In particular, the research interests and experience of the WCIP spans a variety of research areas:
- Wireless Communications (RF and Optical): Wireless Communications Theory, Wireless power transfer, Machine Learning for Wireless Communications, Wireless Security, Wireless Caching
- Communications and Signal Processing for Biomedical Engineering: Machine Learning for Biomedical Engineering, Stochastic Processes in Molecular Biology, Molecular Communications
