Clark, N.J. resident to Present Research at Computer Science Symposium

UNION, NJ - Francis Kendall of Clark, N.J., a mathematics major at Kean University, will present his research, SPF-Net: A Scalable Protocol for Flexible Sensor Networks, at the 33rd IEEE Sarnoff Symposium in Princeton, N.J., from April 12 - 14. The annual conference brings together an international group of telecommunications experts from industry, universities and government to discuss research and innovations in communications delivery and system design.

Conducted with Dr. Patricia Morreale in the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Kendall’s research led to the development of a protocol specification which can work on top of existing wireless sensor nodes. Kendall’s protocol is scalable and adaptable, and is an ideal platform for future applications development in the Kean University Network Laboratory and elsewhere. Kendall’s research will also be published in the conference proceedings.

Founded in 1855, Kean University has become one of the largest metropolitan institutions of higher education in the region, boasting a richly diverse student, faculty and staff population. While Kean continues to play a key role in the training of teachers, it is also a hub of educational, technological and cultural enrichment, offering more than 50 undergraduate degrees and more than 45 options leading to a master’s degree, doctorate, professional diploma and/or state certification(s). Five undergraduate colleges and the Nathan Weiss Graduate College now serve more than 15,000 students.
