Following is the text of press release issued by Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS)


Dr. Ihsan Ayyub Qazi, Assistant Professor in the LUMS Department of Computer Science, along with two of his students, Syed Mohammad Irteza (PhD student, Department of Computer Science), and Ghufran Baig (RA, Department of Computer Science) have published a paper in ACM SIGCOMM 2014; the world's most prestigious research conference on computer networks.

This is the first time a paper involving a University from Pakistan has been published in ACM SIGCOMM. The research was carried out in collaboration with Dr. Fahad R. Dogar (Microsoft Research), Ali Munir (Michigan State University), and Dr. Alex Liu (Michigan State University).

Their work addresses a key challenge faced by large-scale cloud applications (e.g., web search, advertising systems, and financial systems), which is 'network resource allocation'.

This usually means determining how to share a data center network among competing network flows dynamically where the end goal may be to minimize response times, meet deadlines or achieve fair sharing.

Their work proposes a new transport framework called PASE for supporting large-scale online services. PASE vastly improves performance over the state-of-the-art protocols and is readily deployable, as it does not require any changes to the existing infrastructure.
