Tutorial Sessions

On Sunday, 1 May  2011, there will be a series of tutorials covering a wide range of related topics. The tutorials include both the fundamental topics of frequency and timing at a level suitable for practitioners new to the field, and more advanced and specialized topics related to specific areas. As such, the tutorials aim to provide useful knowledge to the beginners in the community, as well as those with extensive experience. Additional information and topics will follow. Previously presented tutorial topics may be found at http://www.ieee-uffc.org/fc.
