Best research paper awarded by the International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computing

12 September 2019

University of Buckingham PhD student, Ali Al-Ameri and his supervisor, Professor Ihsan Lami have published a paper in the International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computing, which was held at the London Metropolitan University on the 19-20th August 2019. With the conference being both IEEE and Springer sponsored, its principle focus is on cloud and edge computing.

Their paper, “SOSE: Smart Offloading Scheme using Computing Resources of Nearby Wireless Devices for Edge Computing Services”, was awarded as the best paper. With recognition, they therefore received the award and certificate for attending and presenting their project. The work was to provide a solution to offload sub-tasks of any Cloud-service to nearby devices, on-the-go, by forming an “edge computing resource”. This is achieved by using short-range wireless connectivity to network between any available cooperative end-devices in the vicinity of the node executing the computation task.

This conference allowed Ali Al-Ameri, who attended the event, the opportunity to network with like-minded researchers and exchange ideas about the future trends of this topic area.

Buckingham’s School of Computing courses allow students to develop their knowledge and understanding of Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Internet of Things, Augmented / Virtual Reality alongside Web and Mobile Applications Development.

Attending conferences gives students the opportunity to achieve awards and showcase their research on a global platform. This also builds their confidence in presenting to a wider range of academics from different specialisms and backgrounds. Events such as these, the School of Computing ensures that students across all multi-disciplinary areas are given opportunities to enhance their professional skills in preparation for the work environment.
