ECE Group Wins Best Paper Award at 2008 IEEE GLOBECOM

Prof. John Baras (ECE/ISR) and co-authors Vahid Tabatabaee, an assistant research scientist at Maryland, ECE graduate student George Papageorgiou, and ECE alumnus Nicolas Rentz (M.S.

The three co-authors are all former or current advisees of Dr. Baras.

The paper, "Performance Metric Sensitivity Computation for Optimization and Trade-off Analysis in Wireless Networks," introduces new methods combining reduced loss network models for wireless MAC interference combined with automatic differentiation to design multi-hop wireless networks that meet performance specifications. GLOBECOM is the premier telecommunications event for industry professionals and academics from companies, governmental agencies, and universities around the world. More than 1000 papers were presented at GLOBECOM this year.
