Tutorials on "Wireless Communications and Networking with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" by Dr. Saad


Dr. Walid Saad has given several tutorials on "Wireless Communications and Networking with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles", at the following conferences: IEEE MILCOM 2017, IEEE PIMRC 2017, IEEE ISCC 2017, IEEE GLOBECOM 2016. These tutorials cover some of the fundamental results that Dr. Saad's group has had in this area, particularly based on the following key papers:
