A husband and wife team in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The Ohio State University learned their research will receive top honors at a Paris conference this week.

Assistant Professor of Practice, Irem Eryilmaz, and Associate Professor Attila Eryilmaz won Best Paper for their proposal submitted to the 15th International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad Hoc and Wireless Networks (WiOPT) taking place in Paris May 15-19.

Their research is titled, “Discounted-Rate Utility Maximization (DRUM): A Framework for Delay-Sensitive Fair Resource Allocation.”

The work introduces a systematic new means for providing fair service to mobile users that are running delay-sensitive applications.

"This framework enables the principled design of new resource allocation solutions for current and future wireless technologies that are envisioned to serve increasingly more delay-sensitive applications for entertainment, control, and healthcare purposes," Atilla said.

WiOpt is co-sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society, IEEE Information Theory Society and IFIP.  It welcomes original papers related to modeling, performance evaluation, and optimization of wireless networks. 

The scope of the conference covers all types of wireless networks: cellular, ad hoc, content-driven, delay-tolerant, mesh, metropolitan, sensor, cognitive, vehicular, robotic, Internet of Things, virtualized, etc.
