This paper considers the problem of jointly estimating two independent continuous-valued parameters sent over a Gaussian multiple-access channel (MAC) subject to the meansquare error (MSE) as a fidelity criterion. We generalize the parameter modulation-estimation analysis techniques proposed by Merhav in 2012 to a two-user multiple-access channel model to obtain outer bounds to the achievable region in the plane of the MSE's of the two user parameters, as well as the achievable region of the exponential decay rates of these MSE's in the asymptotic regime of long blocks.
