One third of the Internet population accesses online resources using wireless technologies. On the other hand, the Internet is accounted for around 2% of carbon emissions in the atmosphere. As a consequence, a clear need emerges towards design of green solutions for wireless access and networking, to optimize power usage.
The seminar will introduce the challenges related to energy efficiency in wireless networks and present some novel approaches to address the main issues. Concrete examples will be used, taken from the current activities of the EU GREENET research project.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Fabrizio Granelli is an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer for 2012-13, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) at the University of Trento (Italy). From 2008, he has held the position of Deputy Head of the Academic Council in Information Engineering.
He received his “Laurea” (M.Sc.) degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Genoa, Italy, in 1997, with a thesis on video coding, was awarded the TELECOM Italy prize, and received his Ph.D. in Telecommunications from the same university in 2001. Since 2000 he is carrying on his research and didactical activities (currently an Associate Professor in Telecommunications) in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science – University of Trento (Italy). He was the coordinator of the Networking Laboratory from 2006 to 2010. In August 2004 and August 2010, he was a visiting professor at the State University of Campinas (Brasil).
He is author or co-author of more than 130 papers published in international journals, books and conferences. His main research activities are in the field of networking, with particular reference to performance modeling, cross-layering, wireless networks, cognitive radios and networks, green networking and smart grid communications.
Dr. Granelli is the guest-editor of the ACM Journal on Mobile Networks and Applications special issues on “WLAN Optimization at the MAC and Network Levels”, “Ultra-Wide Band for Sensor Networks”, and “Recent Advances in IEEE 802.11 WLANs: Protocols, Solutions and Future Directions”, a guest-editor of the ACM TOMACS special issue on “Modeling and Simulation of Cross-layer Interactions in Communication Networks”, and guest-editor of the Hindawi Journal of Computer Systems, Networks and Communications special issue on “Lightweight Mobile and Wireless Systems: Technologies, Architectures and Services”.
He was Co-Chair of 10th and 13th IEEE Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD’04 and CAMAD’08). Dr. Granelli is the Founder and General Vice-Chair of the First International Conference on Wireless Internet (WICON’05) and General Chair of the 11th and 15th IEEE Workshop on Computer-Aided Modeling, Analysis, and Design of Communication Links and Networks (CAMAD’06 and CAMAD’10). He is TPC Co-Chair of GLOBECOM 2007-2009 and 2012 Symposia on “Communications QoS, Reliability and Performance Modeling”.
He was a voting member of the IEEE SCC41 for standards IEEE P1900.1 and IEEE P1900.2, and he’s currently a voting member of the IEEE ComSoc Education Board.
He was an officer (Secretary 2005-2006, Vice-Chair 2007-2008, Chair 2009-2010) of the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Communication Systems Integration and Modeling (CSIM), and Associate Editor of IEEE Communications Letters (2007-2011) and Journal of Wireless Communications and Networking (2008-2011).
He is a Senior Member of IEEE and Associate Editor of IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials and Wiley International Journal on Communication Systems.
