The Wireless System Research Group (WiSeR) at McMaster University (previously WiSeR@UH) conducts research of social impacts on a variety of communication, networking, data analytics and system issues in Cyber Physical Systems and social networks. Our focus is on advancing the fundamental understanding and development of efficient robust solutions. Our projects span core system building blocks, data and network management tools and services, mathematical principles, and application of wireless communication and networking to scientific, industrial and health-care disciplines. Our research has been supported by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)National Science Foundation (NSF)UH Grants to Enhance and Advance Research (GEAR)Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)

Qiang's work on active learning for mobile crowdsensing accepted in INFOCOM'17

This work presented a new framework for acquiring user-annotated data in mobile crowdsensing.

ShareCrowd Funded by NSERC SPG

in crowdsensing, funding, mobile computing

The project aims to develop novel algorithmic, data analytics and system solutions to lowering the barriers to participation and monetization in mobile crowdsensing. It is a collaborative project with Dr. Ruihai Wu from McMaster School of Business and Dr. Kui Wu from University of Victoria, and in partnership with OverAir Proximity Technologies and CompuClever Systems Inc.

We are currently looking for motivated post-doc researcher and graduate students to be involved in the project.
