ISR News Story

John Baras gives distinguished lectures in China

On March 23, 2011, Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) gave an invited distinguished lecture to the Department of Electronic Engineering of Tsinghua University, in Beijing, China. Tsinghua University is the premier science and technology University of China. The lecture, “Component-Based Networking and Design of Wireless Network Protocols,” was part of the Tsinghua Information Forum.

On the same day, Professor Baras gave an invited distinguished lecture in the Institute of Systems Science (ISS) of the Chinese Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS), in Beijing, China. The title of his lecture was “Network Science Principles and Cooperative Networked Systems.” The Institute of Systems Science is a world-recognized research center of excellence in systems science, and is mainly engaged in basic research in systems science, mathematics and interdisciplinary subjects related to systems science as well as application oriented basic research.

During both of these visits Professor Baras met with faculty, researchers and students and discussed collaboration programs between ISR and the University of Maryland with both institutions. As a result of his efforts, ISR is in the process of completing collaboration agreements with both Tsinghua University (the Departments of Automation and Electronic Engineering will be the major participating units) and the Chinese Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (the Institute of Systems Science will be the major participating unit). These collaboration agreements will facilitate exchange visits by faculty, researchers, postdoctoral fellows and students, as well as the undertaking of joint research and educational programs.
