UC San Diego at RFIC 2009

“This year, UC San Diego has 11 (out of 140) papers at the RFIC 2009 conference, which is much more than any other university,” said Larry Larson, Professor and Chair, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. (See below for entire list of UC San Diego papers).

“Our success at this conference is a direct result of the investment that UC San Diego has made over many decades in the field of wireless communications. The RFIC field requires an interdisciplinary team, because it requires innovation in the areas of electronic devices, integrated circuit theory, electromagnetic theory and communications systems. The broad skills of the UCSD faculty have made this extraordinary level of research innovation possible,” said Larson.

The next highest school was National Taiwan University with 6. UC Berkeley had 4 and MIT had 2.
