About Inaugural Talk
On Opportunities and Challenges in Ad Hoc Wireless Networking
In the last few years, there has been a big interest in Ad Hoc
Wireless Networks as they have tremendous military and
commercial potential. An Ad Hoc Wireless Network is a wireless
network, comprising of mobile nodes (which can also serve as
routers) that use wireless transmission, having no infrastructure
(central administration such as a Base Station in a Cellular
Wireless Network or an Access Point in a Wireless LAN).
Ad Hoc Wireless Networks can be set up anywhere and anytime
as they eliminate the complexities of infrastructure setup.
Ad Hoc Wireless Networks find applications in several areas.
Some of these include: military applications (establishing
communication among a group of soldiers for tactical operations
as setting up of a fixed infrastructure in enemy territories or
in inhospitable terrains may not be possible), collaborative
and distributed computing, emergency operations, wireless
mesh networks, wireless sensor networks, and hybrid
(integrated Cellular and Ad hoc) wireless networks.
This talk provides a comprehensive overview of the major issues
that influence the design and performance of Ad Hoc Wireless
Networks and also solutions to these issues.
About the Speaker
C. Siva Ram Murthy received the B.Tech. degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Regional Engineering College (now National Institute of Technology), Warangal, India, in 1982, the M.Tech. degree in Computer Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India, in 1984, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India, in 1988.
He joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at IIT, Madras, as a Lecturer in September 1988, and became an Assistant Professor in August 1989 and an Associate Professor in May 1995. He has been a Professor with the same department since September 2000. He has held visiting positions at the German National Research Centre for Information Technology (GMD), Bonn, Germany, the University of Stuttgart, Germany, the University of Freiburg, Germany, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Switzerland, and the University of Washington, Seattle, USA.
He is the co-author of the textbooks Parallel Computers: Architecture and Programming, (Prentice-Hall of India, New Delhi, India), New Parallel Algorithms for Direct Solution of Linear Equations, (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York, USA), Resource Management in Real-time Systems and Networks, (MIT Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA), WDM Optical Networks: Concepts, Design, and Algorithms, (Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, USA), and Ad Hoc Wireless Networks: Architectures and Protocols, (Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, USA). His research interests include parallel and distributed computing, real-time systems, lightwave networks, and wireless networks. He has published more than 200 technical papers in these areas.
Dr. Murthy is a recipient of the Sheshgiri Kaikini Medal for the Best Ph.D. Thesis from the Indian Institute of Science, the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) Medal for Young Scientists, and Dr. Vikram Sarabhai Research Award for his scientific contributions and achievements in the fields of Electronics, Informatics, Telematics, and Automation. He is a corecipient of Best Paper Awards from the 1st Inter Research Institute Student Seminar (IRISS) in Computer Science, the 5th IEEE International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems (WPDRTS), and the 6th and 11th International Conference on High Performance Computing (HiPC).
