Student Researcher Xueshi Hou Wins 2019 IEEE Jack Neubauer Memorial Award

Thursday, Oct 3, 2019

CWC congratulates student researcher Xueshi Hou for winning the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society 2019 Jack Neubauer Memorial Award. This award recognizes her paper 'Vehicular Fog Computing: A Viewpoint of Vehicles as the Infrastructures' as the best systems paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology.

Emerging vehicular applications demand powerful communication and computational support. The existing solutions depend heavily on deployment of costly additional infrastructure. This paper proposes a new solution: vehicular fog computing (VFC), a computational architecture that makes use of the tremendous number of vehicles in urban areas . VFC employs both moving and parked vehicles as communication and computation infrastructures, improving connectivity, capacity and reliability. 

Xueshi Hou is a Ph.D. student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UC San Diego, advised by Professor Sujit Dey. Her research interests include multimedia, virtual reality, mobile computing and wireless communications.
