HOBOKEN, N.J. ― Dr. Kodavayur P. Subbalakshmi, Associate Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology, will serve as a panelist at the May 2008 IEEE International Communications Conference to be held in Beijing, China.

Subbalakshmi will be featured on the panel, "Cognitive Radio Wireless Networking: An Emerging Frontier," on May 21st, along with Dr. Joseph Mitola III, MITRE, USA; Professor Jon Crowcroft, University of Cambridge, UK; and Professor Joseph Evans, University of Kansas.

"Cognitive radio wireless networking has become a true paradigm-shifting technology in the telecommunications field, which is something that does not happen very often," said Subbalakshmi. "This special panel aims to provide a unique platform to discuss not only the existing research themes and the status of cognitive radio and networks, but also to create a roadmap for the future."

The panel brings together the key-players from the academy, industry and standardization bodies around the world with varied backgrounds and expertise, while targeting multiple significant aspects of the cognitive wireless systems and technologies, including a broad range of communications, networking, implementation, and radio spectrum regulatory policy reform issues. The recent worldwide standardization efforts and achievements in IEEE 802.22 and IEEE 1900 Working Group will be highlighted as well.

Dr. Subbalakshmi's research interests lie in the areas of information and network security, cognitive radio networks and wireless and multimedia networking and coding. She is the Chair of the Special Interest Group in Multimedia Security, IEEE Technical Committee on Multimedia Communications (MMTC), IEEE COMSOC. She is also the secretary of the MMTC. She is a recipient of the Stevens Technogenesis® Award for Research and Technology Contributions in 2007, as well as a Stevens President's Research Recognition Award, 2003. She was visiting researcher at IRISA (Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systèmes Aléatoires), INRIA, France, in October 2007. She has organized and served as the Program Co-Chair for several IEEE symposia in her areas of interests as well as an Associate/Guest Editor of several journals. Her research is funded through grants from NSF-CyberTrust, US Army as well as other government and corporate sponsors. Subbalakshmi is also a co-founder and Vice President of InStream Media LLC, an interactive media company.

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
