10/11/2018 - 13:00 An increase in wireless application demand has put the radio frequency spectrums used for wireless communication in a crunch for space, often resulting in slower response times. CSL researchers are trying to combat this issue.
10/10/2018 - 11:15 For many people, ‘the cloud’ describes a misunderstood space where photos and documents are stored. To ITI researchers, the cloud is the future of electric grids.
10/10/2018 - 10:45 In collaboration with the Semiconductor Research Corporation, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) has announced CSL Professor Naresh R Shanbhag as one of two winners of its 2018 University Research Awards. Shanbhag will receive his award at the SIA Annual Award Dinner on November 29, 2018, in San Jose, CA.
NCPRE-based Confronting Challenges in Academic Units Consortium surveys professional development for academic leaders, calls for action10/08/2018 - 13:30 The Confronting Challenges in Academic Units Consortium presents a new resource, Academic Leadership Development. This white paper surveys professional development programs for those new to leadership positions in academia.
09/27/2018 - 08:45 Each year, dozens of students submit their work to the ACM SIGCOMM Conference Student Research Competition. Last month, after three rounds of competition, third-year doctoral student Suraj Jog was announced as the overall winner of his division.
09/26/2018 - 16:00 One of the most unique evolutionary aspects of humans is the ability to cooperate flexibly in large numbers. As part of his new research project CSL Professor Pramod Viswanath is trying to mimic how trust among humans drives societies, as an inspiration for building new blockchain technology with applications in cryptocurrencies.
