PhD Student Paper Accepted for ICCCN 2011

Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley (CMUSV) PhD student Jiang Zhu’s paper “Towards Accountable Mobility Model: A Language Approach on User Behavior Modeling in Office Wi-Fi Networks” has been accepted by the IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN 2011). The ICCCN is one of the top conferences in the area of computer networks. This year’s ICCCN event attracted a record high number of submissions. After a rigorous review process, only the highest quality submissions were accepted to the main conference.

Jiang Zhu’s work is sponsored by CMUSV’s CyLab research grant on Accountable Mobile Computing. His paper applies machine learning and behavior modeling techniques in solving important security and accountability problems in mobile computing. His research introduces a very novel approach of modeling user’s mobility traces for anomaly detection. The same model can also be applied in patient monitoring and reporting in healthcare.

“I am glad the CMUSV community is publishing papers at these top-tier conferences,” said supervising Professor Joy Zhang. “It demonstrates the quality of the research here and will continue to attract talent.”

“Since the day I arrived on campus, I felt the difference at CMUSV. In this small community, everything comes with a personal touch,” said Jiang Zhu. “Thanks to the attention we receive from advisors, faculty and staff members, we are given everything we need to succeed. With frequent and fruitful interactions with professors and other students, I made progress I could have never made otherwise. I enjoy my SV experience very much.”
