The ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communications (SIG-COMM) has been a major research forum for fifty years. This community has had a major impact on the history of the Internet, and therefore we argue its exploration may reveal fundamental insights into the evolution of networking technologies around the globe. Hence, on the 50 t h anniversar...

In low-power low-rate wireless networks, IEEE 802.15.4 is a standard protocol for communication. Devices in such networks are usually battery-operated so radio-transceiver component in such networks are typically of low range but mostpower consuming. Proper antenna orientation, distance between nodes and channel selection are among the ways to achi...

Teachers play a central role in education. However, there are many factors like non-teaching activities given to teachers besides the teaching workload, and the low or insufficient qualification of teachers, which can lower the quality of education imparted by teachers, especially in the developing countries. In this paper, we have proposed a volun...
