Marco Gruteser elected Chair of ACM SIGMOBILE

Professor Marco Gruteser has been elected chair of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Mobile Computing (ACM SIGMOBILE). ACM SIGMOBILE is the international professional organization for scientists, engineers, executives, educators, and students dedicated to all things mobile.

As exemplified by the inaugural test-of-time awards, its members have pioneered: medium access mechanisms that underpin Wi-Fi and IoT sensor communications, positioning systems used in factories and every smart phone, file system caching techniques that inspired Dropbox, as well as congestion control and mesh networking techniques for faster and more ubiquitous wireless broadband data access.

SIGMOBILE also sponsors and is responsible for a series of highly selective international conferences in the field of mobile computing, including MobiCom, MobiSys, MobiHoc, UbiComp, and Sensys.

Congratulations on this recognition of professional achievement, Marco!
