Institution Background

The mission of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics is to contribute to Hungary’s economic advancement, effective research, development and innovation through the pursuit of education, learning, and scientific research in the fields of technology, economics, natural and social sciences at the highest levels of excellence.

In consonance with these aims BME is a research university that has high reputation among youngsters, has excellent professors and lecturers and is internationally acknowledged for its scientific work. The close connection between theory and practice is evident throughout the degree programmes as they involve strong theoretical foundation and efficient practical training shaped by the requirements of the industry and the society.

Both as a participant of international research programmes and as a leader of Hungarian research initiatives BME’s activities cover the entire innovation chain: basic and applied research, technological and economical product and service development, complex quality management and utilizing research results.

BME is an active partner in EU funded projects in FP5, FP6, and FP7 frameworks in ICT and other technology related research fields.

 

Research Group Background

Our reearch group focuses on economics-inspired system design, energy efficiency of large scale distributed systems, energy efficient data centre design, security and privacy issues in Cloud Computing, and sustainability issues of the Future Internet.

Some recent projects we participated in:

 

–       COST Action IC0804 as Co-chair of the working group “Characterization of performance-energy saving trade-off”,

–       FP7 IP EARTH project which deals with energy efficiency of future wireless networks

–       National projects in the field of energy efficient networking and smart grids

–       EC funded CIRRUS support action on privacy and security issues in Cloud Computing

 

 

Tuan Anh Trinh received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME). After receiving his PhD, he worked as a visiting scientist at Ericsson Research, Budapest, Hungary for one year. He then founded and is the Head of the Network Economics Group at BME. His recent research interests include economics-inspired system design, energy efficiency of large scale distributed systems, energy efficient data centre design, and sustainability issues of the Future Internet. He is involved in the COST Action IC0804 as Co-chair of the working group “Characterization of performance-energy saving trade-off”, and in the FP7 IP EARTH project which deals with energy efficiency of future wireless networks as well as other national projects in the field of energy efficient networking and smart grids. He is a co-guest editor of the Special Issue on Energy Efficiency in Large Scale Distributed Systems in Future Generation Computer System journal and the Special Issue on Socio-Economic Aspects of Next Generation Networks in Telecommunications Systems journal. He is a member of the Program Committee of a number of international conferences, including the ACM SIGCOMM E-Energy Conference, IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on Green Networking and Smart Grids. He has been involved in the Program Committee and co-organized the “Economics of Privacy” session in the Future Internet Assembly in Budapest. He has been invited as a visiting scientist at Ericsson Research Budapest (Hungary), British Telecom (UK), Viettel Corporation (Vietnam), Eurecom Institute (France), University of Luxembourg (Luxembourg), among others. He also serves as a member of the Scientific Board for the EC funded CIRRUS suport action on security and privacy issues in Cloud Computing.

He is a professional member of the ACM and an affiliate of the IEEE Computer Society.

His Erdős number is 3 (Paul Erdős -> Imre Ruzsa -> Sándor Molnár -> Tuan Anh Trinh; Paul Erdős -> István Joó -> László Györfi -> Tuan Anh Trinh).
