IEEE Best Student Paper Award at Vehicular Technology Conference in Porto

We are very happy that Benjamin Sliwa has received the Best Student Paper award of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC) Spring-2018, which took place in June in Porto, Portugal (see photo). The VTC is the flagship conference of the Vehicular Technology Society within the IEEE and is typically attended by approx. 600 international scientists with a focus on wireless and mobile communications. The contribution "Efficient Machine-type Communication using Multi-metric Context-awareness for Cars used as Mobile Sensors in Upcoming 5G Network" has been co-authored by further CNI members Robert Falkenberg, Johannes Pillmann and Christian Wietfeld jointly with Thomas Liebig from the Computer Science department. It was selected from over 200 papers of the conference with PhD students as first author. The paper reports on key results of the research of the projects B4 "Analysis and Communication for Dynamic Traffic Prognosis" and A4 "Resource efficient and distributed platforms for integrative data analysis" within the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 876). The results of the paper demonstrate the significant potential of machine-learning for the optimization of mobile networks.
