UT ECE Professor and WNCG member Gustavo de Veciana and collaborators Ángel Cuevas and Manuel Urueña from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid are recipients of the best paper award at the ACM International Conference on Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Wireless and Mobile Systems October 2010.
Their work entitled Dynamic Random Replication for Data Centric Storage develops a new energy efficient approach to store and retrieve information in distributed wireless (sensor) networks. This research was funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Dr. de Veciana spent his sabbatical leave from U.T. Austin at the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies, IMDEA Networks, in 2008, during which this research collaboration was initiated. He is currently serving on the Scientific Council for this research center.
