ECE Team wins Best Paper Award at 2017 IEEE/IFIP WONS Conference


A team of ECE researchers working with Professor Dario Pompili have won the Best Paper Award at the 2017 IEEE/IFIP Wireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference (WONS), which was held in Jackson Hole, WY. The paper titled “Collaborative Multi-bitrate Video Caching and Processing in Mobile-Edge Computing Networks” was coauthored by ECE graduate students Tuyen Tran, Parul Pandey, Abolfazl Hajisami along with Dario Pompili.

WONS, now in its thirteenth edition, is a high quality forum to address challenges such as how to make smart use of novel technologies when multiple technologies or a mix of permanent services and on-demand networking opportunities are available to a network node, how to provide robust services in highly dynamic environments, how to efficiently employ and operate heavily resource-constrained devices, and how to develop robust and lightweight algorithms for self-organization and adaptation.

Congratulations to Dario and the ECE PhD student team of Tuyen (Harry), Parul, and Abolfazl on this recognition!
