Tutorial on Molecular Communication at IEEE GLOBECOM

I will be helping to deliver a tutorial on molecular communication at this year's IEEE GLOBECOM in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The full title is "Molecular Communication: Methods, Simulations, and Experiments" It will be presented with Andrew Eckford (York), Yansha Deng (KCL), and Nariman Farsad (Stanford). The tutorial will be held on Sunday, 9 December from 2pm-5:30pm.

Abstract: This tutorial introduces the emerging field of molecular communication wherein chemical signals are used to connect "tiny" machines such as living cells, synthetic biological devices and swarms of micro-scale robots. The tutorial begins with an overview of molecular communication systems and how they are modeled; each has a Transmitter, the Propagation Channel, and the Receiver, just as in a conventional communication system. Specific channel and noise models are presented and the derivation of channel impulse responses is discussed. Signal processing via chemical and genetic circuits is described. An overview and demonstration of specialized simulation tools is provided. The tutorial concludes with a discussion of the recent experimental implementations of molecular communication, and some of the most important open problems in this exciting new area.

My section of the tutorial will be on simulation methods, and will include a demonstration of the AcCoRD simulator.
