Department of Computer Engineering Faculty Members Received the “Best Paper” Award at IEEE CAMAD
Nov 21, 2016

21st IEEE International Conference on Computer-Aided Modeling and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD) was held in Toronto, Canada. The conference is known as one of the most prestigious events in the field of computer aided modeling and design.

Computer Engineering Associate Professor Berk Canberk, ITU, and research assistants in his team, Gökhan Seçinti and Müge Erel, and Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Associate Professor Kaushik Chowdhury, Northwestern University, received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE (CAMAD) 2016 Conference for their co-authored paper entitled “Dynamic Power Adjustment and Resource Allocation Framework for LTE Networks”.


The paper is the outcome of a joint research by Assoc. Prof. Berk Canberk’s team and Prof. Chowdhury’s team. The paper, given the highest score among the 109 papers evaluated by the IEEE Communication Systems Integration and Modeling Technical Committee (CSIM-TC), develops a resource allocation algorithm for higher energy efficiency in 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) networks. The paper also proposes a new mathematical model for energy saving, which is a critical issue in LTE wireless networks. Findings of the paper are expected to make a novel contribution at an international level in terms of modeling, design, and service provisioning of next generation 5G communication networks.
