ECE graduate student Soummya Kar's paper, "Topology for Global Average Consensus," placed third in the Best Student Paper contest at the Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers last week. The research, submitted under the array processing and statistical signal processing area, addresses the problem of network topology optimization for fast consensus algorithms in large sensor networks. Kar's advisor, ECE Professor José Moura, co-authored the study.
The conference is held annually at the Asilomar beach retreat in Pacific Grove, California, and focuses on work in theoretical and applied signal processing, according to the event's website. It is organized in cooperation with the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and ATK Mission Research, both located in Monterey, CA. The IEEE Signal Processing Society is a technical co-sponsor.
