During the past half year, the Xi’an ComSoc Chapter arranged several seminars for students and young members. The discussion topics were mainly about wireless communications, electronic healthcare, communications security, and so on.

In addition to the seminars, we also invited three Distinguished Lecturers to conduct lectures for the students and young scholars.

On May 15, 2015, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Prof. Nei Kato from the Tohuko University, Japan gave a lecture on ‘Device-to-Device (D2D): Research Trends and Future Perspectives’ to the students. More than 30 students and teachers attended the lecture.

On June 24, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Prof. Pradeep Ray from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia gave a lecture on ‘Cooperative Service Management in Healthcare Sector: Emerging Trends and Future Challenges’ to students and scholars from Xidian University and also to our chapter members.

Prof. Pradeep Ray also visited the study group of Prof. Yang Gang and had a discussion about the issues related to E-Health. The researchers hoped that they can have full collaboration with Prof. Pradeep Ray in the study of E-Health.

On July 6, 2015, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Prof. Zhu Han from the University of Houston, USA gave a lecture on ‘Cooperative Game Theory for Cognitive Radio’. Many students attended the lecture and had good discussions with Prof. Zhu Han.

The students developed many advanced study topics and study methods from those seminars and lectures.
