Domenic Forte, an ECE graduate student attending the NASA/ESA Conference on Adaptive Hardware and Systems (AHS) on June 6-9 in San Diego, won the AHS 2011 Best Student Paper Award.

Domenic and his advisor, Prof. Ankur Srivastava, collaborated and presented the paper, titled “Adaptable Video Compression and Transmission Using Lossy and Workload Balancing Techniques.”

Domenic Forte is in his fourth year of Ph.D. work at the University of Maryland, studying Computer Engineering. His research interests include Dynamic Energy and Thermal Management, Video and Image Processing, and Sensor Networks. Domenic’s advisor, Ankur Srivastava, is an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of Maryland College Park. His research focus is in the VLSI Design Automation and Embedded Systems area.

The purpose of the AHS Conference is to bring together leading researchers from the adaptive hardware and systems community to exchange experiences and share new ideas in the field. The conference expands the topics addressed by the precursor series of NASA/DoD Conference on Evolvable Hardware, held between 1999 and 2005. B & A Engineering Systems sponsored the award for best student paper. The conference was technically sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (IEEE-CAS) and is organized in cooperation with ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM-SIGDA).
