A systems approach to network coding and random coding

26 Jun

Prof. Dr. Nick Maxemchuk, Columbia University of New York City (USA); Chief Researcher, IMDEA Networks; Prize 2006 IEEE Koji Kobiyashi Computers and Communications.


A systems approach to network coding and random coding:

  • Explain how network coding is used in wireless networks
  • Show an example of random coding to implement network coding

This talk on network and random coding is of particular interest to researchers tackling wireless, P2P and multipath routing.

Who is Nicholas F. Maxemchuk?

Dr. Nicholas F. Maxemchuk, a networking pioneer, holds a permanent double appointment as Professor at the world-leading Columbia University of New York and as Chief Researcher at IMDEA Networks.

Many of Dr. Maxemchuk’s far-sighted contributions in computer-communications networking have been years ahead of their time and have led to the development of groundbreaking new systems. His invention of dispersity routing in the 1970s, for example, has recently been applied to ad hoc networks. In 2006 his achievements in the field were recognized with the award of the prestigious 2006 IEEE Koji Kobiyashi Computers and Communications Award.

Dr. Maxemchuk holds an MSc in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Systems Engineering, both from the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining Columbia University and IMDEA Networks, Dr Maxemchuk held the positions of Technology Leader at AT&T Research labs and, prior to that, was the Head of Distributed Systems Research Department at AT&T Bell Laboratories.

As well as owning 30 patents and publishing three books, he has co-authored over 100 publications. His strong reputation as an eminent scientist has earned him many editorial and advisory positions with organizations including the IEEE, ACM, NSF Expert Group and the United Nations. He has published three award winning papers and had two of his publications voted into the Communication Society 50th Anniversary Issue. He is a member of the Board of Governors of the Armstrong Foundation and also works as a Consultant on Data Networks in Transportation Networks for The National Academies/Transportation Research Board.
