WINC was established in 2007 with the focus on technology development and education in all aspects of wireless systems, networking and applications. WINC provides the perfect mix for multi-disciplinary research spanning diverse areas ranging from theoretical foundations; e.g.: communications theory, information theory, optimization theory, and queuing theory, to system and algorithm design, networking protocols, and applications e.g., wireless networking, mobile computing, and mobile applications. Through its strong performance and track record, WINC established a unique position as a regional center conducting world-class research in wireless, optical and secure communications technologies and applications. This led to having strong and stable collaboration ties with international, regional and national academic institutions and industrial partners.
