March 03, 2022

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Dr. Mohammed Jasim, assistant professor of electrical engineering at the University of Mount Union, recently received the Best Paper Award at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC) held in Las Vegas in January.

The piece was titled, “Efficient Load Migration Scheme for Fog Networks” and was co-authored by Dr. Nazli Siasi, assistant professor of cybersecurity at Christopher Newport University, and Dr. Nasir Ghani, professor of electrical engineering at the University of South Florida. The paper was presented in the International Workshop on Secure Function Chain and Federated AI as part of the conference.

“The work focuses on efficient resource utilization and load management across fog datacenters that receive traffic from Internet of things (IoT) devices,” said Jasim. 

Jasim explains the group’s research aims to improve network capacity and quality of experience for users that demand delay-sensitive applications such as online gaming, teleconferencing and video streaming, all incredibly omnipresent in the world today. 

“This is a tremendous accomplishment by Dr. Jasim and demonstrates the quality of our engineering faculty and their research,” said Dr. Chad Koach, associate professor and director of Mount Union’s School of Engineering.
