Prof. Mung Chiang is the recipient of the Alan T. Waterman Award, the highest honor for young researchers given by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Prof. Chiang's textbook entitled "Networked Life: 20 Questions and Answers" has been selected for the 2012 PROSE Award in Engineering and Technology by the Association of American Publishers.
EE Profs. Paul Prucnal and Mung Chiang are among nine recipients for this year's Princeton's Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund.
Prof. Mung Chiang has recently co-chaired the workshop for the National Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD), a program under the U.S. National Science and Technology Council, on Complex Engineered Networks.
Prof. Mung Chiang has recently published a bestseller book entitled “Networked Life: 20 Questions and Answers” which explores the technology behind the multi-trillion dollar Internet and wireless industries. Driven by twenty real-world questions, this book goes in depth on the Internet and explains the hidden workings of our networked lives. More details can be found here.
Princeton University is experimenting during the Fall semester with several courses on the coursera platform, including two from the Electrical Engineering Department: ELE475 Computer Architecture by David Wentzlaff and ELE381 Networks: Friends, Money, and Bytes by Mung Chiang. For more information about coursera, please see the Daily Princetonian article.
Prof. Mung Chiang, EE postdoctoral research associate Soumya Sen and Grad Student Felix Wong recently published an article on the use and abuse of Tweets about movies, analyzing all the tweets around the world about Oscar-nominated movies during February 2012. The set of interesting results have been widely covered in online media outlets such as WSJ blogs, Yahoo blogs, Technology Review, Mashable and many more.
Prof. Mung Chiang, EE postdoctoral research associate Soumya Sen, Grad Student Carlee Joe-Wong and Tian Lan *10 received the 2012 IEEE INFOCOM Best Paper Award for their paper "Multi-resource allocation: Fairness-efficiency tradeoff in a unifying framework." INFOCOM is IEEE's flagship conference in networking. Sixteen papers were selected as finalists from over 1500 submissions and one paper selected as the winner of the best paper award.
Prof. Mung Chiang has been selected to receive the IEEE 2012 Kiyo Tomiyasu Award for demonstrating the practicability of a new theoretical foundation for the analysis and design of communication networks. The IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award recognizes outstanding early to mid-career contributions to technologies holding the promise of innovative applications.
Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and Skype have become household names as demand soars for movies, television shows, amateur videos, and video calls delivered via the Internet and mobile networks. As a result, this enormous thirst for moving pixels is fast outpacing the capacity to supply video to viewers' screens. A team of Princeton researchers led by Mung Chiang, a professor of electrical engineering, is grappling with the problem by exploring ways to make global networks more efficient.
