Researchers Win Best Paper Award for Content Distribution Framework

A team of researchers from Northeastern University, MIT, and EURECOM won the best paper award at the 21st International Symposium on Modeling and Optimization in Mobile, Ad-hoc, and Wireless Networks (WiOpt 2023) for their paper on “Joint Optimization of Storage and Transmission via Coding Traffic Flows for Content Distribution.”

The team included Northeastern ECE student Yuanyuan Li, PhD’23, Northeastern ECE professors Stratis Ioannidis and Edmund Yeh, as well as professor Derya Malak from EURECOM, France, and professor Muriel Médard, NEC professor of software science and engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Their paper provided a flow-based coded caching framework that jointly optimized delivery rates, cross coding, and cache contents allocation as a function of demand and the network’s topology.

WiOpt, which is co-sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society and of the IEEE Information Theory Society, showcases state-of-the-art research contributions from different areas within the networking field, and was co-hosted by the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) this year.
