Giovanni Pau is the ATOS/Renault smart mobility Chair Professor at the University Pierre at Marie Curie, Paris France. He holds the Italian Laura in Computer Science and the PhD in Computer Engineering awarded by the University of Bologna in 1998 and 2002 respectively. Before Joining UPMC Dr. Pau was a Senior Research Scientist at the UCLA Computer Science Department where he still retains the position of Adjunct Professor.
Dr. Pau’s core research interests are in Network Systems with focus on Vehicular Networks and pervasive mobile sensor systems. He designed and built the UCLA campus vehicular testbed and the UCLA/MPI urban sensing testbed designed to enable hands-on studies on vehicular communications and urban sensing. His research contributions lead to the VERGILIUS and CORNER simulation suites designed to support mobility and propagation modeling in urban environments. More recently, Dr. Pau designed and developed VNDN the Named Data Network (NDN) protocol stack specifically adapted to work on mobile-to-mobile scenarios.
Dr. Pau designed and developed VNDN the Named Data Network (NDN) protocol stack specifically adapted to work on mobile-to-mobile scenarios. Dr. Pau’s research interest include ICN architectures for Connected Vehicles as well as machine-to-machine communications, such as In-vehicle networks and pervasive sensing scenarios.
We plan to investigate NDN as instrument to finally enable V2X communications. We believe NDN has the right architectural components to cope with the a dynamically
partitioning networks, coping with fragile links and disruption tolerant scenarios.
Papers will be uploaded to the named-data.net web site as usual.
