  • Ying Wu awarded Phononics Young Investigator 2017

    Sunday, June, 11, 2017 Prof. Ying Wu received the 2017 Phononics Young Investigator Award as the Phononics community gathered in Chansha, China, for the 4th International Conference on Phononic Crystal/Metamaterials, Phonon Transport/Coupling and Topological Phononics, on June 4-9 2017.

  • Cocoon finally out: Professor Marco Canini together with VMware, Samsung, and Microsoft craft the ultimate SDN ally

    Monday, May, 29, 2017 Cocoon was developed by Prof. Marco Canini in a joined effort with Leonid Ryzhyk, project leader at VMware, along with researchers at Samsung, Microsoft, and other industry players.  Compared to previous existing verification tools, Cocoon gives to designers the ability to specify a high-level view of the network. In this way, it is possible to capture the correct network behavior verifying that the network implementation is equivalent to the high-level specification.
  • One size does not fit all: an innovative analytical tool will help pave the way for tailor-made health care

    Wednesday, May, 24, 2017 Ph.D. student Imene Boudellioua, from the Bio-Ontology Research Group of the Computational Bioscience Research Center of KAUST, established the startup GenomeFit, a computational tool intended to facilitate clinical decisions by providing diagnostic for the screening of genetic disorders and the analysis of drug effects on patients carrying genetic mutations. The startup was recently granted funding by TAQADAM University Startup Accelerator (KAUST) to further develop their service and their business model.  
  • Hesham ElSawy wins IEEE Communication Society

    Monday, May, 22, 2017 Dr. Hesham ElSawy took part in the IEEE Communication Society 2017, where he received the "Best Survey Paper Award" for his comprehensive survey paper, titled “Stochastic Geometry for Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Multi-Tier and Cognitive Cellular Wireless Networks: A Survey”. The study proposes a much easier taxonomy able to extend and simplify the realm of stochastic geometry application to communication networks.​
  • A talk with PhD student Sabrina Vettori: Catastrophic events are forecastable, after all!

    Monday, May, 15, 2017 Environmental disasters occur daily and hit almost every country around the world, taking a heavy toll on lives and economies. According to the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, every year there are around 350 reported disasters causing more than 20,000 deaths and affecting the life of almost 100 million people with an overall economic damage of 66.5 billion US$. But this can change.
