Engineering Professor and Student Win Best Paper Award

An electrical engineering professor and a student received the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Long Island Systems, Applications and Technology (LISAT) Conference’s “Best Systems Track Paper Award” for research investigating solutions to increase the capacity of wireless networks. The award was presented at the IEEE LISAT Conference last month at Farmingdale State College.

Professor Wing Kwong, Ph.D  and Roy Salmanovich ‘20 wrote “On the Design of Synchronous-Symmetric Channel-Hopping Sequences for Cognitive Radio Ad Hoc Wireless Networks” which studies the development of modern wireless technologies to support Internet-of-Things and 5G mobile systems and provides a technological solution to increase the amount of data that can pass through wireless communication networks and allow large numbers of users to communicate. The paper will be published as part of the LISAT Conference’s proceedings in the IEEE Digital Library, Xplore.

The pair did their research as part of Hofstra’s 2018 ASPiRe (Advanced Summer Program in Research), which allows students to work with faculty on sophisticated research projects.

“It was a great honor to be recognized by the IEEE and an
invaluable experience working with Professor Kwong,” Salmanovich said.  “I will be graduating next May and hope to be
involved in research and contribute to the advancement of technology throughout
my career.”

Dr. Kwong and Professor Guu-Chang Yang, PhD of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the National Chung Hsing University of Taiwan, will continue their research this summer. They plan to set up an experimental testbed in Hofstra’s Advanced Communication Lab with the help of a new ASPiRe program student.

“The DeMatteis School ASPiRe program provides an excellent opportunity for faculty and students to work side-by-side on state-of-the-art research,” Dr. Kwong said.  “And, it taught Roy how to apply knowledge acquired in the classroom and advanced technology to develop solutions to real-world problems which will certainly make a positive, lasting effect to his future career.”
