Anuj Sehgal presented a poster discussing the effects of climate change and anthropogenic ocean acidification on underwater acoustic communications at IEEE Oceans in Sydney and his poster did win the runner up position in the student poster competition.
This Saturday, the running enthusiasts of the Computer Networks and Distributed Systems group did join the first running competition in 2010, the Vegesacker Citylauf. Our goal was to find out where we stand after the long winter and how we cope with a slightly more challenging trail (four times uphill and downhill). Overall we did pretty well, several minutes of improvement for some of us on the 10km distance!
A research center called the "Center of Advanced Systems Engineering" is being established at Jacobs University. Our group has been leading this effort during 2009, from the proposal writing phase through the proposal evaluation phase and up to the formulation of business plans. Since the beginning of 2010, we are now in the implementation phase where many organizational details are being worked out. While this keeps us all very busy, we are convinced that the centers will provide great benefits for research and graduate education at Jacobs University.
Today, a Network Security workshop took place at Jacobs University. We were hosting the workshop as part of the EU FP7 project EMANICS. Key topics of this workshop were privacy and anonymization technologies such as Tor. Thanks to all participants for their contributions to the successful workshop and sorry for those who missed the excursion following the workshop…
This Sunday, the team of running enthusiasts of the Computer Networks and Distributed\ Systems group did their second 10km run as part of the SWB Marathon 2009. The goal was to improve our performance relative to the first 10 km run along the Lesum river and the team had great success. Several minutes of improvement for each runner!
We organized a group retreat in Denmark and we had almost perfect weather.
