Short Bio:
Ekram Hossain (http://www.ee.umanitoba.ca/~ekram) is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Victoria, Canada, in 2001. Dr. Hossain's current research interests include design, analysis, and optimization of wireless/mobile communications networks, cognitive radio systems, and network economics.  He has authored/edited several books in these areas. Dr. Hossain currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, an Editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications - Cognitive Radio Series and IEEE Wireless Communications.  Also, he serves on the IEEE Press Editorial Board (for the term 2013-2015). Previously, he served as the Area Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications in the area of  ``Resource Management and Multiple Access'' from 2009-2011 and an Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing from 2007-2012. Dr. Hossain has won several research awards including the University of Manitoba Merit Award in 2010 (for Research and Scholarly Activities), the 2011 IEEE Communications Society Fred Ellersick Prize Paper Award, and the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference 2012 (WCNC'12) Best Paper Award. He is a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society for the term 2012-2013. Dr. Hossain is a registered Professional Engineer in the province of Manitoba, Canada.

Lecture #1: Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Multi-tier and Cognitive Cellular Wireless Networks
Abstract: Multi-tier architecture with small cells such as femtocells, picocells, macrocells, and metrocells, overlaid with traditional macrocells is considered as a promising option to improve the network coverage and capacity of the next generation cellular wireless networks. Also, in such multi-tier networks, cognitive radio concepts will likely to be used by these small cells to improve the radio spectrum utilization. In this context, modeling, analysis, and design of multi-tier and cognitive cellular networks is increasingly attracting the attention of the research community.  Recently, stochastic geometry models have been shown to provide tractable yet accurate performance bounds for multi-tier and cognitive cellular wireless networks. Given the need for interference characterization in multi-tier cellular networks, stochastic geometry models provide high potential to simplify their modeling and provide insights into their design.  In this seminar, I will present a review of the stochastic geometry models for single-tier as well as multi-tier and cognitive cellular wireless networks. I will also present a taxonomy based on the target network model, the point process used, and the performance evaluation technique. To this end, I will discuss the open research challenges and future research directions.

Lecture #2:  Radio Resource Management in Multi-tier Cellular Wireless Networks
Abstract:  One of the major challenges for next generation wireless communication systems is to improve the indoor coverage and provide high-data-rate services to the users in a cost-effective manner and at the same time, to enhance the network capacity. In this regard, small cells such as femtocells, picocells, macrocells, and metrocells, are considered as a promising option for the mobile operators to improve the network coverage and to provide ubiquitous high-speed connectivity to the end users or User Equipments (UEs). This gives rise to a hierarchical cellular network architecture. However, deployment of small cells in a hierarchical cellular network poses many challenges among which resource management (i.e., interference management, admission control, load balancing) is the most significant one. This lecture will provide an overview on the radio resource management problem in small cell networks considering both CDMA (e.g., 3G) and OFDMA (e.g., LTE, WiMAX) small cells, and review the state-of-the-art research on this topic. Several major open research issues and directions for future research on resource allocation and self-reconfiguration in small cell networks will be also discussed.
