Tsiropoulou wins best paper at international IEEE conference

September 23, 2019 - by Kim Delker

Eirini Eleni Tsiropoulou, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of New Mexico, has won a best paper award at an international conference for reformulating the way resource management is performed in 5G networks and beyond.


Her paper, titled “Redesigning Resource Management in Wireless Networks based on Games in Satisfaction Form,” was selected as best paper at the 12th Wireless and Mobile Networking Conference (WMNC 2019) in Paris, France, earlier this month.

WMNC 2019 provided a forum for discussion for researchers, practitioners and students interested in new developments in mobile and wireless networks, services, applications and mobile computing.

Tsiropoulou’s paper was co-authored by UNM electrical and computer engineering Ph.D. student Pavlos Athanasios Apostolopoulos, as well as Mr. Panagiotis Promponas and Prof. Symeon Papavassiliou, research collaborators from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, where Dr. Tsiropoulou has established a strong collaboration over the years and a pipeline of Ph.D. students joining ECE, UNM.

The research is part of Tsiropoulou’s National Science Foundation-funded project, NeTS: Real-life modeling for EFficient RESource management in Heterogeneous multi-user systems - REFRESH.

“In this work, we proposed a novel framework in order to redesign the way resource management is performed in 5G networks and beyond. The proposed framework is based on game theory and the games in satisfaction form,” Tsiropoulou said.

Tsiropoulou manages the PROTON Lab, located in the third floor of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Building. She is an expert in the field of game theory, and her work focuses on research in resource management in interdependent systems with multiple applications in several areas, such as 5G and 6G networks, Internet of Things, public safety, mobile edge computing and other related topics that will become increasingly critical as technology advances in new directions in years to come.
