[September 1, 2018] For each home game at Notre Dame, our group provides WiFi for the University Relations tent on Irish Green. For a high profile game such as the Michigan game, there are a few more challenges with the crowd density as well as nearby other tests. Our WiFi gear has been newly re-racked in our WiFi “cart” as you can see below.
The WiFi seemed to fare OK though there are certainly some nice improvements that we can make for the next home game both to the cart as well as how we mount gear to the side of the tent. More to come over the next few weeks with respect to the WiFi service and general performance estimates as we start to deploy our Fast Mobile Network Characterization app across the tent and various scattered Raspberry Pis in the tent.
[August 17th, 2018] A hearty congratulations to Dr. Lixing Song who is freshly starting his new job at Rose Hulman in the Department of Computer Science as a newly minted faculty member.
[August 17th, 2018] A welcome to Shangyue Zhu and Alamin Mohammed who are joining our research group this fall. Both will be helping out with Project Tesserae in the short term and then branching out into their respective research areas.
[August 1st, 2018] Great conference at ICCCN 2018 in Hangzhou, China. Had a chance to catch up with lots of familiar faces now having attended ICCCN for the past 7 years straight. Great to meet up with my former student, Qi Liao, who also had a paper at ICCCN. On Wednesday, I presented our base work on Fast Mobile Network Characterization (FMNC) which was an invited paper at ICCCN. A really solid work done by my student that has laid the foundation on much of our work in this area.

[June 15, 2018] Great workshop in Amsterdam for NOSSDAV 2018. I had the pleasure of presenting my student Lixing’s paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” at the workshop in addition to serving as a session chair for the first session. Very well attended workshop and lots of great questions.
[June 1, 2018] I will be joining the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing as an Associate Editor. Looking forward to serving the community in this new exciting role.
[April 24, 2018] Congrats to Lixing Song on getting his paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” accepted to appear at NOSSDAV 2018 in Amsterdam in June.
[April 15, 2018] I am happy to announce that I will be serving on the inaugural editorial board for the soon to be launched IEEE Networking Letters. Many thanks to George (EiC) and Christos (Associate EiC) for the invite.
[April 19, 2018] I had the privilege of serving on a panel on Machine Learning in Networking at INFOCOM 2018. The panel was exceptionally well attended (pictures soon). One key outcome is that we will be putting together a survey paper on machine learning in networking as a basic overview. Fantastic panel and great audience questions.
[February 28th, 2018] A very nice piece by Jess Arnold from ABC57 on the security of Amazon Alexa and other always-on devices entitled “Privacy and security: asking Amazon Alexa if your data is secure“.
