Computer Science Colloquium, October 30

On Friday, October 30,  the Computer Science Department will host its second colloquium of the Fall 2020 semester. Dr. Uddipan Das of the Computer Science Department at TCNJ will give a technical talk entitled “Quality-aware Data Management in Smart Grid Communication Networks.  An abstract of his talk can be found below.

Please join CS faculty and students via Zoom from 12:30 – 1:30 PM for this talk.

You must sign in with your TCNJ credentials. Waiting room will be enabled.

The inclusion of various intelligent electronic devices such as smart meters for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) in Smart Grids is expected to result in intermittent or frequent communications network congestion if additional network infrastructure investments are not made. One approach to deal with such a data volume challenge in smart grids without additional investments to increase network capacity is to aggregate data streams within the underlying communication network whenever network congestion happens. However, this needs to be done carefully so as not to significantly impact the smart grid applications that need the data. In this talk, I will present my research on data management in capacity-constrained communication networks of AMI in Smart Grids considering the requirements of Quality-of-Service (QoS). I will discuss my research contributions in this area to deal with the challenge of managing data traffic while keeping a balance between data granularity and network latencies.

Uddipan Das is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at The College of New Jersey. He graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Wichita State University in 2020. Previously, he earned his M.E. degree in Software Engineering from Jadavpur University and B.Tech degree in Computer Science and Engineering from West Bengal University of Technology. His primary research interest centers around the design and development of data-driven algorithms and systems in smart cities; specifically, data management in smart electric power grid communication networks and smart environments for navigation and wayfinding for people with disabilities. He has published peer-reviewed research publications in the top-tier journal and conference venues, and he serves as a reviewer for the IEEE Systems Journal, IEEE ICDCS, IEEE NAPS, and IEEE IGSC, etc. He is a member of IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Power & Energy Society.
