Beiyu Rong wins Best Student Paper Award at WiOpt

Beiyu Rong recently won the Best Student Paper Award at the prestigious 8th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc, and Wireless Networks (WiOpt) in June. The paper, “Stable Throughput, Rate Control, and Delay in Multi-Access Channels,” represents an important step in linking information theoretic and networking concepts and points to new possibilities towards a stronger coupling between the two fields.

Beiyu co-authored the paper with her Ph.D. advisor Tony Ephremides (ECE/ISR).

Beiyu recently successfully defended her Ph.D. dissertation and this fall will become a postdoctoral fellow in a special joint program between the University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University.
