An ECE faculty member and an ECE alumnus were the two featured speakers at the Conference on Information Sciences and Systems (CISS), a prestigious conference now in its 44th year that is held in mid-March each year, alternating between Princeton University and Johns Hopkins University. CISS 2010 was took place on March 17-19, 2010 at Princeton University.

Cynthia Kim Professor of Information Technology Anthony Ephremides (ECE/ISR) gave one of the two plenary talks. The title of his talk was "Simply Cooperative." In the talk, Prof. Ephremides described some new ways in which he and his students are approaching the very topical and current issue of cooperative wireless networking.

The other plenary talk was given by electrical engineering alumnus Rajiv Laroia (M.S. '89, Ph.D. '92), Senior Vice President for Engineering at Qualcomm, a member of the ECE Advisory Board and the Clark School Board of Visitors, as well as an inductee of the Clark School Innovation Hall of Fame for his innovations in wireless communications technology. Dr. Laroia's talk, titled "Proximate Internet,"described a new type of peer-to-peer communication technology based on direct communication between physically proximate peers without the need of any infrastructure.
