Short Bio

Prof. Awerbuch's research is focused on theory online and distributed decisions making and application of this theory to networks, and distributed systems. Prof. Awerbuch is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Algorithms. He has been a co-chair of the 1995 ACM Mobile Conference on Mobile Computing (MobiCom 95), and has been a member of program committees for ACM PODC (1989) and ACM STOC (1990, 1991).

As a consultant to IBM's T.J. Watson Networking Group, he has participated in the design of protocols for IBM's novel high-speed network (PARIS/plaNET), which is a part of the AURORA gigabit testbed. The work of Awerbuch, Cidon, and Kutten (1990) has been recognized with the Outstanding Innovation Award of IBM's Research Division and has been adopted as standard for IBM's wide-area and metropolitan-area networks.
