Securing interconnected devices has become a vital but error-prone task. Unfortunately, vulnerabilities can be present in both the design and implementation of the network protocol that devices use to communicate. This project explores three areas to better secure network protocols. First, research will be done on techniques to discover logical implementation flaws in network protocols implementations. This will be done by relying on software ...

Network architectures and protocols for efficient ad hoc collaboration between heterogeneous networked objects Ghent University
In the Internet-of-Things, an increasing number of heterogeneous devices will be co-located
in the same area. Current networking approaches are not designed to support efficient direct communication between co-located devices from different networks. To optimize these
heterogeneous networks, ad hoc cooperation between co-located devices of different network
technologies is needed.
To this end, this project develops ...
Characterization of brain-brain and brain-body interactions in the context of stress regulation and meditation: New perspectives for the development of biofeedback protocols assisting meditative practice KU Leuven
Towards standardized and validated test protocols for mechanical characterization of biological tissue. KU Leuven
Quantitative characterization of the mechanical behavior of biological tissue is crucial to understand mechanics-related pathologies (aneurysm formation, osteoporosis,…), to design medical implants and to develop novel disease treatment strategies. Unlike for non-biological tissues such as polymers and metals, standardized test protocols don’t yet exist for the mechanical testing of biological materials. As such, approaches, if even reported ...

Stochastic modelling and performance analysis of energy efficient protocols for wireless networks Ghent University
This reseacrh project aims at the development of new stochastic models and queueing models for (components of)WiMAX networks and appropriate techniques for the corresponding performance analysis. We envisage the study of queueing models with multiple servers and server vacations in the presence of both uplink and downlink traffic. Moreover we will study queueing systems in tandem in order to model relay nodes. Such performance models are very ...
