Information Engineering Research Group Symposium 2018

Date: Friday 21 Sept 2018, 13:30-17:00

Venue: Room D2.02, Engineering Building, University of Warwick

The Information Engineering Research Group at the University of Warwick has extensive expertise and experience in developing fundamental theory and applications relating to the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in image and video, bioinformatics, health informatics, optical and wireless communication, and biophysical communication engineering. The Group’s research activities actively address issues around global and personal security, healthcare for the 21st century, and optimisation of wireless communications and biophysical communications. These have included developing solutions to challenges in eHealth, machine learning, molecular communication, video surveillance and wireless relaying/sensing. Further details of the Group’s research activities are available at

The Symposium aims to publicise the Group’s current research activities to industry and other interested organisations. It also aims to inform interested parties of various means of accessing available state and other funding opportunities for setting up collaborative research and development with the Group.

Please register HERE if you would like to attend the symposium (which is free of charge).
