Over the past few years there has been quite a lot of interest in wireless sensors and the applications of this technology in a variety of areas (e.g. environment, bridge control, etc). Researchers have been experimenting with platforms such as the TinyOS (known as the Berkeley Mote) in which applications are written in NesC.
Over the past two years (starting in Fall 2006) I have integrated mobile devices, such as the BlackBerry, into my Computer Science courses. Janice J. Heiss has interviewed me about this work: Teaching Mobile Computing to Generation C. Any feedback is welcome. Q.
I have attended the O'Reilly Open Mobile Exchange (OMX), which is a one-day event organized for the first time as part of the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON2008). I came to OSCON primarily for OMX and I am glad I did -- it was a wonderful event full of useful information -- many thanks to the organizers and speakers.
The 10th O'Reilly Open Source Convention will take place between July 21-25 in Portland, Oregon.
I have attended the General Session this morning. Several applications were demoed showing the power of JavaFX.
I am excited to be at JavaOne again this year, and Iâ€™ll be watching for interesting stuff around Java ME and Web Services. I arrived in San Francisco around noon and attended some of the afternoon sessions of CommunityOne â€“ this yearâ€™s event is much bigger than the previous year and included many more concurrent sessions.
The Centre for Mobile Education Research (Univ. of Guelph) and Research In Motion Limited (RIM) are pleased to announce the first Faculty Summit on Mobile Devices in Computer Science (CS) Education.
This event is for faculty members interested in integrating mobile devices into their courses and across the CS curriculum.
I have just returned from ACM SIGCSE (the 39th ACM Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education) which was held in Portland, Oregon.
I haven't posted anything in my blog for the past six months not because I didn't have anything interesting happening in my life but rather I have been super busy with work!
I am delighted to announce the availability of my new edited book on "Cognitive Networks" that has just been published by Wiley.
With forewords by Joseph Mitola III and Sudhir Dixit.
From the back cover
Cognitive networks can dynamically adapt their operational parameters in response to user needs or changing environmental conditions.
