MobiHoc 2014 Best Poster Award for Feixiong Zhang


Feixiong Zhang, an ECE WINLAB Ph.D. student working with Prof. Yanyong Zhang received the Best Poster Award at the 15th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc Networking and Computing (MobiHoc 2014) conference for his presentation on content delivery in the MobilityFirst architecture.

The poster title was "Enabling Mobile Content-Oriented Networking in the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture".

ACM MobiHoc is the premier international symposium dedicated to addressing challenges emerging from wireless ad hoc networking and computing. The highly selective technical program has traditionally brought together a unique blend of researchers and practitioners thereby influencing the direction of a broad spectrum of wireless networking research.

The MobilityFirst project was started in 2010 with funding from the National Science Foundation's Future Internet Architecture (FIA) program.

The MobilityFirst project is founded on the premise that the Internet is approaching an historic inflection point, with mobile platforms and applications poised to replace the fixed-host/server model that has dominated the Internet since its inception. This predictable, yet fundamental, shift presents a unique opportunity to design a next generation Internet in which mobile devices, and applications, and the consequent changes in service, trustworthiness, and management are primary drivers of a new architecture.
