Professor Jie Wu is Chair and Laura H. Carnell Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University, USA. Prior to joining Temple University, he was a program director at the National Science Foundation and Distinguished Professor at Florida Atlantic University. His research interests include wireless networks, mobile computing, routing protocols, fault-tolerant computing, and interconnection networks. Dr. Wu’s publications include over 600 papers in scholarly journals, conference proceedings, and books. He has served on several editorial boards, including IEEE Transactions on Computers and Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing. Dr. Wu was general co-chair for IEEE MASS-2006, IEEE IPDPS2008, and IEEE DCOSS-2009 and was program co-chair for IEEE INFOCOMM-2011. He served as general chair for IEEE ICDCS-2013. He was an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Visitor and the chair for the IEEE Technical Committee on Distributed Processing (TCDP). Currently, Dr. Wu is an ACM Distinguished Speaker and a Fellow of the IEEE. He is the recipient of 2011 China Computer Federation (CCF) Overseas Outstanding Achievement Award.

A paramount concern in dynamic wireless networks is efficient utilization of limited resources. The dynamic nature of wireless networks makes it difficult to use limited resources in a cost-efficient way. The traditional single utility model, such as link quality, is inadequate for addressing this problem. In this talk, a composite utility model is presented together with a routing application in dynamic wireless networks. In this model, both cost and link quality are integrated into a single network utility metric together with the benefit of successful packet delivery to measure  routing optimality. Efficient centralized and distributed algorithms are presented. Finally, several extensions of the basic model are discussed.
