Short Biography of the speaker:

Hussein Abdel-Wahab received the Ph.D in 1976 and the MS in 1973 both from the University of Waterloo in Computer Communications and the BS in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University in 1969. Currently he is a full professor of computer science at Old Dominion University. In addition he is an adjunct professor of computer science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a faculty at the Information Technology Lab of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Prior to that he held faculty positions at North Carolina State University, the University of Maryland and Rochester Institute of Technology. He served as a consultant to many organizations including IBM, MCNC and MITRE Corp. He is the principle investigator in designing and implementation of XTV, a pioneer X-window based Teleconferencing system. His main research interests are collaborative desktop multimedia conferencing systems, and real-time distributed information sharing. His research has been supported by NSF, ONR, IBM, MCNC, MITRE, ARPA among others. He is a senior member of IEEE Computer Society and a member of the Association for Computing Machinery.

Abstract of the course:

Increased desktop processing power and network bandwidth have made feasible distributed multimedia collaborative systems. Such systems are characterized by video, audio and data exchanges. While there has been much research and development of protocols and services for video and audio transmission, less work has been focused on data sharing particularly when the data is being generated by an application in real time and in turns controlled by one or more of the participants in the collaborative session. This series of seminars describes the principles, protocols and implementation for sharing desktop applications in a distributed collaborative session. Examples of such systems are X Teleconferencing and Viewing (XTV) and Java Collaborative Environment (JCE) which have been implemented at Old Dominion University will be described in these series of seminars.

Topics:

1. Introduction to sharing desktop applications

2. Principles of sharing desktop applications

3. Protocols for sharing desktop applications in a distributed collaborative session

4. Implementation of sharing desktop applications in a distributed collaborative session

5. Examples: X teleconferencing and Viewing (XTV) and Java Collaborative Environment (JCE)
