Ghassane Aniba received a PhD degree in telecommunications from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique—Énergie, Matériaux et Télécommunications (INRS-EMT), Montreal, Canada, in 2010, and a Dipl.-Ing. degree in telecommunications engineering from the Institut national des postes et télécommunications (INPT), Rabat, Morocco, in 2002. In 2010, after a postdoctoral position at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, he joined École Mohammadia d'ingénieurs (EMI), Rabat, Morocco, where he is currently an associate professor in electrical and telecommunications engineering. He was the chair of the cooperative techniques and relays session at the 20th International Conference on Telecommunications in 2013. He is the principal coordinator of the IRESEN MicroCSP project (2014–2017) within the InnoTherm III call for projects. His current research interests include smart grids, traffic modeling in green cognitive networks, cooperative wireless networks and wireless sensor networks.
Project: Development of a Book on Signals and Systems
Goal of the project:
Based on the famous book Signals and Systems, 2nd ed., coauthored by A. V. Oppenheim and A. S. Willsky, the aim of this project is to begin a new, updated edition of the book that includes an online ebook version with animated and dynamic illustrations using Wolfram technology.
Summary of work:
The main objective is to update and convert all included figures and concepts to animated and living figures and demonstrations, which can be changed dynamically by the professor or students. This will be a huge improvement in the new edition, and will encourage more students and professors to adopt this high-tech book.
Results and future work:
Some large sections were converted, including new animated illustrations, in addition to a sample slideshow that will be used next year in my teaching. This work was presented to Professor Oppenheim, who was impressed by the technology and even asked to get access to it online. Future work includes the development of more animations on signal processing, and even starting our own book on the subject using Wolfram technology.
