    Welcome to the first issue of the Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering produced under Witold Kinsner of the University of Manitoba and Xavier Maldague of Laval University, recently appointed Co-Editors by IEEE Canada. The Journal is the flagship of IEEE Canada (IEEE Region 7). This issue of the CJECE features six reviewed papers: two regular papers on communications and a specia... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a novel audio watermarking scheme based on spread spectrum techniques is proposed. This technique embeds a digital watermark within an audio signal using the instantaneous mean frequency (IMF) of the signal. Audio watermarking offers a solution to data piracy and helps to protect the rights of the artists and copyright holders. The proposed content-based algorithm aims to satisfy an...

    An important application of image processing and computer vision is the development of intelligent systems for traffic monitoring, management and optimization. This paper presents a system for real-time detection of moving vehicles approaching an intersection from sequences of colour images acquired by a stationary camera. The proposed approach is developed in the context of traffic-light control ... View full abstract»

    One of the central problems in software engineering is the inherent complexity. Since software is the result of human creative activity, cognitive informatics plays an important role in understanding its fundamental characteristics. This paper models one of the fundamental characteristics of software, complexity, by examining the cognitive weights of basic software control structures. Based on thi... View full abstract»

    When a soft-in soft-out (SISO) iterative multiuser detector cooperates with a bank of SISO single-user decoders, the multiuser system performance can be shown to converge to that of the single-user system. In this paper, a novel SISO iterative detector which employs a decorrelator on the output of soft interference cancellation is proposed. By making use of the advantages of decorrelating detectio...

    This paper presents a theoretical analysis of a noncoherent multitone code division multiple access (MT-CDMA) system with diversity combining in terms of average bit error rate performance. The study is carried out for both slow Rayleigh and Ricean fading frequency-selective channels with differential binary phase-shift keying (DBPSK) modulation in the indoor environment. The investigation conside... View full abstract»

    (Paper written in French) This paper contains two parts: In the first part the Hertz vectorial potential is introduced and its possible use in solving electromagnetic diffusion problems common in electrical engineering is considered. Links between this potential and other commonly used potentials are established, and a formulation procedure using three vectorial equations is proposed. This approac... View full abstract»
