Dr. Aris Pagourtzis delivers talk at GIK TeleCoN Research Centre

Dr. Aris Pagourtzis, Associate Professor, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NUTA), Greece, delivered a talk on "Energy-Efficient Broadcasting in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks" at the Telecommunications and Networking (TeleCoN), Research center, GIK Institute.


Engr. Jehangir Bashar, Rector GIK Institute said that the Institute Research Center strives to involve outstanding academic staff from all over the world. “We give great importance to focus on result-oriented research activities,” he said.


Dr. Pagourtzis received the Dipl. Ing. degree in electrical engineering and Dr. Eng. degree in electrical and computer engineering from NTUA, Athens, Greece, in 1989 and 1999, respectively. He has previously held academic posts in the University of Ioannina, Greece; University of Liverpool, U.K.; ETH Zürich, Switzerland; and University of Athens, Greece. Dr. Pagourtzis is a member of EATCS and the Technical Chamber of Greece. The main research interests of Dr. Pagourtzislie in the areas of algorithms for optical networks, distributed protocols for ad hoc radio networks, computational complexity of counting problems, and algorithmic game theory.


During the talk at TeleCoN, Dr. Pagourtzis discussed deterministic broadcasting protocols in wireless ad hoc networks where nodes have limited energy resources, demonstrated how this can be modelled by setting an upper bound on the number of transmissions available to each node, and presented an almost oblivious protocol.

The work of Dr. Pagourtzis was discussed at length by the members of TeleCoN Research Centre. A number of interesting research avenues emerged for collaboration with Dr. Pagourtzis as a result of this discussion.
