For the third time in 2017 members of the Seoul National University (SNU) and the Institute of Communications (INT) of the TUHH met for a joint workshop to intensify the exchange and the partnership between the research groups. After visiting Hamburg in January and August 2017, this time a delegation of four Ph.D. students and Prof. Bauch travelled to Seoul. The workshop was held from the 30th of November to the 1st of December and is part of a German-Korean Partnership Program (GenKO), which is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF).
Prof. Jae Hong Lee and Prof. Byonghyo Shim hosted the fourth workshop of this German-Korean Partnership Program at SNU. The first talk was a tutorial about the “Information Bottleneck method” and its application in communications opening the first session which was complemented by two related talks given by students from TUHH. In total nine additional interesting presentations about versatile fields of research like maritime communication, energy harvesting, 5G and compressed sensing result in a diverse workshop which was instructive for everybody. The talks were accompanied by in-depth technical discussions.
Between the session and in the afternoon the hosts complemented the scientific program with several social events to continue the technical and inter-cultural discussions in a relaxing atmosphere. Especially during the lunch breaks, everyone enjoyed the beautiful view over Seoul and the surrounding landscape from the nicely located SNU facilities.
