>Dear IEEE ComSoc Member or friend,
>The IEEE Northern Virginia Communications Society is privileged to
>its 2003-2004 season with a very topical talk. Dr. John Fite, a
>principal engineer at the MITRE Corporation in McLean, VA, will
>multi-user detection, or MUD, and give some updated results of
>in this field. In recent years, multi-user detection (MUD) techniques
>have been developed to increase user capacity and improve
>quality-of-service of cellular systems. Multi-user detection
>exploit known signal properties and parameters to separate signals
>occupying the same frequency, bandwidth, and time. The use of MUD
>techniques results in a much more efficient re-use of RF frequencies.
>John will present a brief tutorial of MUD algorithms and describe the
>recent advances using multi-stage chip-level cancellation methods,
>emphases on computationally efficient algorithms that work against
>long-code, asynchronous CDMA signals operating in a highly overloaded
>The meeting will be at Northrop Grumman, 12011 Sunset Hills Road,
>Reston, VA. (NOTE: This is a change from the IEEE Scanner, which
>it would be at the MITRE Corporation building, in McLean, VA.)
>We will have a light dinner beginning at 6:00 p.m., and our speaker
>begin around 6:45 p.m. The meeting will wrap up by 8:00 p.m.

>good head count so we dont buy more food than we have to, so please
>make sure you RSVP if you want dinner.
>At our last ComSoc meeting we discussed helping defray the IEEE
>organizations contribution for dinner costs. At the time a few of
>thought that a notional contribution would be acceptable. If you
>to help out by supporting this dinners costs, bring $3 and well
>free-will offering basket available if you want to help out. The
>should NOT stop you from attending! If you dont have money come
>and learn something, and bring money when you have a few bucks in
>ON LINE RESOURCES:
>You can always get the on-line schedule of local IEEE events here:
>The Northern Virginia IEEE community has a wonderful new tool that we
>will be using increasingly more often:
>Membership is free to IEEE members, so please log in and get an
>account. (Have your IEEE membership number handy.) Once you get an
>IEEE Virtual Communities account, make sure you become a member at
>National Capitol Area (NCA), which is our area. Once there, you can
>a calendar of events. This Virtual Communities thing is pretty neat.
>could see us doing a lot of decision-making and poll-taking over the
>Internet in the not too distant future. There is even an on-line
>feature. We will use this NCA Virtual Community to publish our
>schedules of future events, pictures, documents such as meeting
>and other things. This is just starting, so get in and start using
>now, and watch this tool evolve over time. Im very excited about
>and I think you will be too.
