Oregon State University - Tech Talk
November 24th
11:00 AM (1 hour)

Oregon State University has arranged a Tech Talk by Associate Professor, Dr. Arun Natarajan.  The topic fits very well with our MTT charter, and Dr. Natarajan has graciously allowed us to publicize his talk to our MTT / EDS colleagues.  The logistics for this virtual meeting are arranged by Oregon State University, and a Zoom link is provided in this announcement.

This event is free, and no pre-registration is required.

This talk is part of the Oregon State University Tech Talk series, and it will be posted (along with earlier Tech Talks) at this URL

Watch for other MTT / EDS society presentations to be announced shortly!

Oregon Comsoc: Connecting Space Assets to the Internet - Challenges and Solutions
December 10th
5:00 PM (1.5 hours)


Abstract:  Data communications between Earth and spacecraft, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offers a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of spacecrafts however gives rise to mobility management issues.


This talk will discuss various mobility management solutions for extending the Internet connection to spacecrafts.  The talk with provide an overview of the network layer-based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare it with the transport layer-based solution that has been developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Network in motion is an extension of the host mobility protocols for managing the mobility of networks which are in motion, such as those in airplanes and trains. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.


Bio: Mohammed Atiquzzaman obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1984 and 1987, respectively.  He currently holds the Edith J Kinney Gaylord Presidential professorship in the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma.


Dr. Atiquzzaman is the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Networks and Computer Applications, the founding Editor-in-Chief of Vehicular Communications, and serves/served on the editorial boards of many journals including IEEE Communications Magazine, Real Time Imaging Journal, International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems and Journal of Sensor Networks and International Journal of Communication Systems. He co-chaired the IEEE High Performance Switching and Routing Symposium (2003, 2011), IEEE Globecom and ICC (2014, 2012, 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006), IEEE VTC (2013)  and the SPIE Quality of Service over Next Generation Data Networks conferences (2001, 2002, 2003). He was the panels co-chair of INFOCOM’05, and is/has been in the program committee of many conferences such as INFOCOM, Globecom, ICCCN, ICCIT, Local Computer Networks, and serves on the review panels at the National Science Foundation.


Dr. Atiquzzaman received IEEE Communication Society's Fred W. Ellersick Prize, IEEE Distinguished Technical Achievement Award, IEEE Satellite Communications Technical Contribution Award, and NASA Group Achievement Award for "outstanding work to further NASA Glenn Research Center's effort in the area of Advanced Communications/Air Traffic Management's Fiber Optic Signal Distribution for Aeronautical Communications" project. He is the co-author of the book “Performance of TCP/IP over ATM networks” and has over 350 refereed publications, available at


His current research interests are in areas of transport protocols, wireless and mobile networks, ad hoc networks, satellite networks, power-aware networking, and optical communications. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. Air Force, Cisco, Honeywell, Oklahoma Department of Transportation and Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.
