Clarkson University Student & Professors Win Best Paper Award at HONET Conference

Clarkson University researchers received the Best Paper Award at the High Capacity Optical Networks and Emerging/Enabling Technologies (HONET) international conference this winter.

HONET Best Paper AwardThe paper, "Energy Efficient Virtual Machine Migration Revisited: Service Level Agreement Assurance and Minimum Service Disruption with Available Hosts," came out of a term project by electrical engineering alumnus Phil Glasser '15 of Liverpool, N.Y.

Glasser was researching green virtual machine migration for data centers with minimum disruption as a graduate student in Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Burak Kantarci's cloud systems and networks course.

Kantarci moved the research forward, working with Associate Professor of Computer Science Jeanna Matthews and collaborator Tolga Soyata, an assistant professor of research, electrical and computer engineering at the University of Rochester.

The paper proposed a virtual machine migration approach that reduces service level agreement violations by running virtual machines in a data center with more available physical hosts as opposed to shutting down idle hosts to save energy.

The annual HONET conference is sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the IEEE Communications Society. HONET brings together professionals and practitioners from academia, industry and government around the world to share knowledge and experience in the field of information and communication technologies, photonics and energy for global partnerships and collaborations aiding economic growth to support peace and prosperity around the world.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through more than 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences, education and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
