Canadian University Dubai Professor wins Best Workshop accolade at international engineering conference

August 28th, 2019: Dr. Adel Ben Mnaouer, Professor of Engineering at Canadian University Dubai, has been awarded the prize for Best Workshop at the International Wireless Communications & Mobile Computing Conference, hosted recently in Tangier, Morocco.

One of eight specialized workshops taking place at the conference, Dr. Mnaouer’s session was organized under the theme ‘Energy Efficient Networking Systems and Protocols for WSNs and IoT (E2NSP 2019)’. It brought together leading researchers in the field of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) to share their insights on energy efficient approaches to powering systems that support devices and applications associated with the Internet of Things (IoT).

The Best Workshop prize was awarded to Dr. Mnaouer in recognition of the high-quality of papers presented during the session and the contribution it made to furthering research and academic thought in the field, under his chairmanship. Dr. Mnaouer was himself selected through the rigorous peer review process to present three of his papers at the event, including his research on maximizing the lifespan of wireless systems for water pipeline monitoring.

Now in its 15th year, the International Wireless Communications & Mobile Computing Conference brings together innovator, researchers, scientists and industrial engineers fromacross the globe to tackle a broad spectrum of current and emerging challenges in state-of-the art fields of wireless networks, wireless communications, and mobile computing. 

Backed by technical sponsor, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the annual conference is gaining growing recognition as an important platform for information exchange within this domain of breakthrough technology. The 2019 event attracted over 900 paper submissions and saw over 300 participants attend the week-long convention. 

Speaking about the workshop, Dr. Mnaouer said, “As wireless sensor networks become ever more pervasive in both industrial and societal settings, the issue of energy efficiency is of utmost importance. This workshop revealed some of the emerging technologies that have the potential to deliver effective energy management and I am grateful to all the presenters who shared their research to create what was recognized as a stand-out session during this international conference.”
