Brian Meskill, a TSSG PhD student working in the FAME strategic research cluster recently presented a paper at the 2012 IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2012) in Hawaii, USA. NOMS is the IEEE and IFIP’s premier conference in network operations and management and explores the hottest areas of information and communications technology.
The paper presents Brians work on revenue maximising server selection and admission control for IPTV Content Servers which is conducted under the supervision of Dr Brendan Jennings and Dr Alan Davy. This work looks at efficiently using the resources of an IPTV Content Provider to maximise the revenue generated whilst ensuring important Quality of Service (QoS) targets are satisfied.

The 9th International Conference on Engineering Autonomous and Autonomic Systems (EASE) was recently held in Novi Sad, Serbia at the Park Hotel (11th-13th April). Dr. Steven Davy was invited to give a talk on the topic of Autonomic Communications to this highly multi-disciplinary conference. His talk focused on the motivation for new techniques in the management of Future Internet and that autonomic principles, such as those explored in the FAME SRC, can be profitably applied.

Annie Ibrahim Rana recently presented her conference paper at the 26th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA-2012), which was held at the Fukuoka Institute of Technology (FIT), Fukuoka, Japan, March 26-29, 2012.
AINA is one of the most important international conferences sponsored by the TCDP of the IEEE Computer Society. AINA-2012 was held in Fukuoka on March 26, 2012. The conference covered theory, design and application of computer networks and distributed computing and information systems. Aside from the regular presentations, the conference included keynote addresses with speakers from both industry and academia. There were also more than 20 workshops in conjunction with conference.

LTE+ has the potential to truly deliver mobile high speed wireless access and radically change�
business organisation and service delivery. To address the research and commercial opportunities for Ireland in the LTE+ area FAME, together with the CTVR, is organising a one day workshop in Dublin on Thursday, May 27th. The workshop will offer an informal setting in which researchers, telecommunications networks operators, service providers, and government bodies can gather to identify the next steps for Ireland towards LTE+. The agenda for the day can be downloaded: lte_workshop_agenda.
in an interview with the Irish Times, Jeong Kim, President of Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent, cited active collaboration with academic research groups as one of the main reasons for the success of Bell Labs Ireland over the past 5 years. Bell Labs Ireland last week announced plans to expand its research team from 27 at present to 70 over the coming years.
Academic members of the FAME SRC are actively collaborating with researchers from Bell Labs Ireland on topics relating to the use of semantic interoperablility techniques in network and services management systems.
