Prof. Bo LI received the Best Paper Award from IEEE Communications Society, Technical Committee on Multimedia Communications for 2009. Congratulations!
The award-winning paper, B. Li, S.-S. Xie, G. Y. Keung, J.-C. Liu, I. Stoica, H. Zhang and X.-Y. Zhang, "An Empirical Study of the Coolstreaming+ System," was published in IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, Special Issue on Advances in Peer-to-Peer Streaming System, 25(9):1-13, December 2007. S.-S. Xie, G. Y. Keung, J.-C. Liu and X.-Y. Zhang are Bo Li's current or former PhD students.
The system Coolstreaming was credited as the first large-scale Peer-to-Peer live media streaming system in the world. The work initially published in IEEE INFOCOM (2005) has not only been highly referenced (Google Scholar citations 721 so far or 896 under a slightly different title), but also spearheaded a momentum in the Internet video broadcast industry, with no fewer than a dozen successful companies such as PPLive, PPStream, Sopcast, UUSee and YahooBB (Japan) adopting the same mesh-based pull streaming technique to deliver live media content to millions of daily users. The technology was licensed to Nokia Corp. through the university R&D Corp. The Keyword Coolstreaming had over 2,000,000 entries on Google search.
The Award was established in 2004 to recognize members' contributions on technical achievement in multimedia communications. Read more about the Award.
