Zheng Jason Song
Assistant Professor Computer and Information Science Department
University of Michigan--Dearborn
I received my second PhD in Computer Science (with a focus on distributed systems and software engineering) from Virginia Tech USA in 2020, and the first PhD (with a focus on wireless networking and mobile computing) from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications China in 2015. I worked as a software engineer at Sina for one year after I graduated as a master from China Agriculture University in 2009. I received the Best Paper Award from IEEE Edge in 2019 and NSF CRII award in 2021.
Our paper "A Meta-Pattern for Building QoS-Optimal Mobile Services out of Equivalent Microservices" has been accepted to Service Oriented Computing and Applications
Serve on IEEE ICCCN'24 and IEEE/ACM IWQoS'24 TPC.
One paper was accepted to MADWeb 2024.
Our paper ``Towards Distributed Learning to Support Situational Awareness for Robotic Team Augmented Humanitarian Disaster Response" won the best paper award at IEEE CCWC'24.
I was invited to serve as a reviewer for NSF GRFP.
Our paper "From Tight Coupling to Flexibility: A Digital Twin Middleware Layer for the ShakeAlert System" was accepted by the Digital Twins workshop at IEEE/ACM SEC'23.
Our paper "Mobilizing Personalized Federated Learning in Infrastructure-Less and Heterogeneous Environments via Random Walk Stochastic ADMM" is accepted by NeurIPS'23.
