Mr. Uji

 On January 20th, Keyaki Uji (a 4th-year student in the Department of Informatics at the KGU School of Science and Technology, Miwa Laboratory) won an award for research excellence at the 5th Communication Quality Workshop, sponsored by the IEICE (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers) Technical Committee on Communication Quality.
 This award is given to people who have delivered outstanding research presentations. The paper, entitled “Method for Finding Links to be Protected to Decrease Probability of Fragmentation of Network by Failures” (Keyaki Uji, Hiroyoshi Miwa) relates to ways to improve the reliability of entire networks. The research formulated this as a discrete optimization problem and clarified its mathematical properties. Furthermore, Uji designed an effective algorithm and demonstrated the validity of that algorithm through numerical simulations.
