  1. 1. Individual Differences in Multitasking : Support for Spatiotemporal Offloading

    Author : Ivo Todorov; Timo Mäntylä; Fredrik Jönsson; Patrik Sörqvist; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; multitasking; cognitive offloading; cognitive functions; individual differences; executive functions; spatial ability; sex differences; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : In both the private and work spheres, multitasking among three or more activities has become and is continuing to evolve as a pervasive element of everyday life, and recent technological advances only seem to be exacerbating the process. Despite attempts to understand the mental processes that let humans successfully multitask, little is known about the functional cognitive level at which these mental processes take place. READ MORE

    Abstract : Link speeds in networks will in the near-future reach and exceed 100 Gbps. While available specialized hardware can accommodate these speeds, modern networks have adopted a new networking paradigm, also known as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), that replaces expensive specialized hardware with open-source software running on commodity hardware.

  3. 3. System Design for Opportunistic Networks

    Author : Sylvia T. Kouyoumdjieva; Gunnar Karlsson; Andrea Passarella; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; opportunistic communication; system design; mobility; energy-saving mechanisms; device-to-device communication; mobile data offloading; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Device-to-device communication has been suggested as a complement to traditional cellular networks as a means of offloading cellular traffic. In this thesis we explore a solution for device-to-device communication based on opportunistic content distribution in a content-centric network. READ MORE

  4. 4. Resource Allocation for Mobile Edge Computing Systems

    Author : Ming Zeng; Viktória Fodor; Gunnar Karlsson; Di Yuan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; mobile edge computing MEC ; orthogonal multiple access OMA ; non-orthogonal multiple access NOMA ; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The rapid development of mobile information industry has led to the emergence of various mobile applications in areas such as industrial automation, health care or transportation. These applications often require heavy computations with strict latency requirement, which may surpass the processing abilities of the mobile devices. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance Analysis in Wireless HetNets: Traffic, Energy, and Secrecy Considerations

    Author : Georgios Smpokos; Nikolaos Pappas; Vangelis Angelakis; Qinghua Wang; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : To this day, most of the communication networks are characterized by a "monolithic" operating approach. Network elements are configured and operate without any reconfiguration for long time periods. Softwarization, whereby dedicated elements are being replaced by more general-purpose devices, has been lately challenging this existing approach. READ MORE
