Adjunct Professor Anwar Walid Receives 2022 IEEE INFOCOM Test of Time paper Award

May 18, 2022

The award was given for the paper “Distributed Caching Algorithms for Content Distribution Networks," published in 2010 with co-authors Sem Borst and Varun Gupta. The IEEE INFOCOM Test of Time Paper Award recognizes papers published 10 to 12 years ago in the INFOCOM proceedings that have been most cited and widely recognized to have a significant impact on the research community. The 2022 winning paper provides optimization solutions for the management of large networks of geographically distributed caches used for the efficient and timely delivery of video contents to end users. This is achieved using data-driven algorithms for distributed cache management that adapt to the changing dynamics of content popularity and ingestion rate.
