Keynote - Mobile Computing: the Next Decade and Beyond (Abstract)
Prof. Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Carnegie Mellon University, Outstanding Contributor Award)
9:00 AM to 10:15 AM
Mahadev Satyanarayanan

Prof. Mahadev Satyanarayanan is an experimental computer scientist who has pioneered research in mobile and pervasive computing. One example of his work is the Coda File System, which supports distributed file access in low-bandwidth and intermittent wireless networks through disconnected and bandwidth-adaptive operation. The Coda concepts of hoarding, reintegration and application-specific conflict resolution are seen in the hotsync capability of mobile devices today. Key ideas from Coda were also incorporated by Microsoft into the IntelliMirror component of Windows 2000 and the Cached Exchange Mode of Outlook 2003. Other examples of Satya´s work include Odyssey (which explored operating system support for application-aware adaptation to overcome resource limitations in mobile computing) and the Internet Suspend/Resume system (a hands-free approach to mobile computing that leverages virtual machine technology). Satya is a co-inventor of many technologies central to mobile and pervasive computing, such as cyber foraging, data staging, lookaside caching, and translucent caching. He is also a co-inventor of the Diamond approach to interactive content search of non-text data (such as smartphone photos) in bandwidth-limited environments. Early in his career, Satya was a principal architect and implementer of the Andrew File System (AFS) which pioneered scalable file caching and enterprise-scale information sharing. AFS was commercialized by IBM, is in widespread use today as OpenAFS, and has heavily influenced the NFS v4 network file system protocol standard. Satya is the Carnegie Group Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He received the PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon, and Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. He is a Fellow of the ACM and the IEEE. He was the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Pervasive Computing and the founding program chair of the HotMobile workshop series.
