ATLANTA, June 2015 – Dr. Danda B. Rawat, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Director of CWiNs lab at Georgia Southern University, delivered an invited talk at the 2015 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (CTS 2015), June 1 – 5, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA entitled: “Context-aware Collaboration, Computation and Communications in Emerging Wireless Networks.” The talk detailed recent research results and an ambitious new research agenda on the real-time context-aware collaboration, computation and communications in emerging wireless networks. This new agenda intends to address important questions about how emerging wireless networks are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically based on their operating situations to complete mission-critical assignments.
Dr. Gustavo Maldonado of the CECM department led a group of 11 undergraduate students and 2 graduate assistants from Georgia Southern on a fascinating study abroad program in conjunction with the Universidad Anahuac Mayab in Mexico for a month starting May 18, 2015. The students learned modern land surveying techniques, including laser scanning, then were allowed to model the Temple of the Seven Dolls at the Dzibilchaltun Maya ruins. They used a laser scanner and a quadricopter as well as data interpretation to create a 3D point-cloud model of the temple with very high precision.
