Brief Bio
Andreas Ahrens received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rostock in 1996. From 1996 to 2008, he was with the Institute of Communications Engineering of the University of Rostock, from which he received the Dr.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. habil. degree in 2000 and 2003, respectively. In 2008, he became a Professor for Signal and System theory at the Hochschule Wismar, University of Technology, Business and Design, Germany. His main field of interest are error correcting codes, multiple-input multiple-output systems and iterative detection for both wireline and wireless communication.


The need for new wireless as well as optical communications systems to cope with the demand of new services which call for higher performance, larger throughputs, wider bandwidths and low bit-error-rate, requires the development of new technologies and techniques. Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems have attracted a large research activity because the possibility to increase the channel performance without increasing the transmit power and the bandwidth. Several issues concerning the deployment of MIMO systems are open and require the contribution of the research community. Hence, further research efforts must be involved in the development of wireless as well as optical MIMO systems in order to contribute to the development of future communication systems.
