Distributed Computing

Dr. Wathiq Mansoor, Professor of Computer Engineering, is a leading regional expert on web semantics and distributed systems. He has recently completed the editing of a book titled "Web Based Information Technologies & Distributed Systems,"  which is devoted to the emerging and novel concepts of architectures and methodologies for creating an interconnected world.


According to Mansoor, distributed systems enable information to be exchanged easily and tasks to be processed collaboratively.  Communities of users with similar interests can be formed transcending borders, while addressing the increasingly pervasive security threats. The book is based on a collection of best papers from the WITDS Track at the 2008 IEEE SITIS Conference, and the book chapters are newly extended versions of the original papers. The book contains four parts; the first part is devoted to Ad Hoc and Routing Protocols where novel algorithms are proposed for ad hoc networks; the second part focuses on security and policies and the various innovative solutions; the third part covers efficient algorithms for web services; the fourth part features the various intelligent systems for agent systems, smart home environment, and service-driven applications. Dr. Mansoor had also written a book chapter on the implementation of adaptive seamless non-broadcast routing algorithms for wireless mesh networks. The Chapter was published by Springer in March 2010, as part of the book "Advanced Techniques in Computing Sciences and Software Engineering."
