  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan; Gerla, Mario (2024-02-28)
    Vehicular Ad hoc Networks, also known as VANETs, enable vehicles that are not necessarily within the same radio transmission range to communicate with each other. VANETs also allow vehicles to connect to Roadside Units ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan (2024-02-28)
    Intervehicular communication lies at the core of a number of industry and academic research initiatives that aim at enhancing the safety and efficiency of transportation systems. Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) enable ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan; Gerla, Mario (2024-02-28)
    Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) enable vehicles to communicate with each other but require efficient and robust routing protocols for their success. In this paper, we exploit the infrastructure of roadside units (RSUs) ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan (IEEE, 2024-02-24)
    Data Acquisition and delivery in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) is an important topic that has received very little attention. We proposed a system in which roadside units (RSUs) were exploited to satisfy the various ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan (2024-02-28)
    The strong capabilities that exist in a Vehicular Ad hoc Network (VANET) has given birth to the concept of Vehicular Clouds, in which cloud computing services are hosted by vehicles that have sufficient resources to act ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan; Saghir, Mazen A.R.; Hajj, Hazem; Awad, Mariette (2024-02-28)
    In a previous work, we presented a system which combines active solid state drives and reconfigurable FPGAs (which we called reconfigurable active SSD nodes, or simply RASSD nodes) into a storage-compute node that can be ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Artail, Hassan; Saghir, Mazen; Hajj, Hazem; Awad, Mariette (2024-02-27)
    Cloud computing is the future paradigm that will dominate the visualization and processing of web data. Achieving high performance in storing and processing huge amounts of data in the cloud has been a major research concern ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Wakim, Pilar (2024-02-27)
    A breakthrough in the development of online learning occurred with the utilization of Learning Management Systems (LMS) as a tool for creating, distributing, tracking, and managing various types of educational and training ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Malluhi, Qutaibah M.; Ouzzani, Mourad; Tang, Mingjie; Gribskov, Michael; Aref, Walid G.; Prakash, Deo (2024-02-27)
    Data curation activities in collaborative databases mandate that collaborators interact until they converge and agree on the content of their data. In a previous work, we presented a cloud-based collaborative database ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Malluhi, Qutaibah M.; Ouzzani, Mourad; Tang, Mingjie; Gribskov, Michael; Aref, Walid G. (2024-02-27)
    Collaborative databases such as genome databases, often involve extensive curation activities where collaborators need to interact to be able to converge and agree on the content of data. In a typical scenario, a member ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Hamie, Ali; Hamze, Mohamed (2024-02-27)
    Mobile ad-hoc networks are wireless self-organized networks in which mobile nodes can connect directly to each other. This fact makes such networks highly susceptible to security risks and threats, as malicious nodes can ...
  • Hamzeh, Wael; Mershad, Khaleel; Vetokhin, Siarhei (2024-02-26)
    The higher education sector in Lebanon has undergone significant changes in the past twenty years, with a rapid increase in the number of higher education institutions that differ greatly in their missions, methodologies, ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel (2024-02-27)
    Software-defined networking (SDN) is becoming the most dominant method for network management. By decoupling the control plane from the data plane, SDN provides a centralized view and more flexibility, scalability, and ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Damaj, Abdulhadi; Wakim, Pilar; Hamieh, Ali (2024-02-27)
    A breakthrough in the development of online learning occurred with the utilization of Learning Management Systems (LMS) as a tool for creating, distributing, tracking, and managing various types of educational and training ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel (2024-02-26)
    Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have evolved as one of the most important research topics in the last decades. A new paradigm of combining WSN with cloud computing has led to what is called Sensor-Cloud, in which the cloud ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Cheikhrouhou, Omar; Ismail, Leila (2024-02-26)
    The Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is a distributed network that enables vehicles to connect to each other and to various infrastructure and smart devices, in order to exchange data and provide important services. The highly ...
  • Mershad, Khaleel; Hamieh, Ali (2024-02-26)
    Digital data are usually divided into structured and unstructured types. Although unstructured data are becoming a significant part of digital data, there are still a large number of organisations that save their data into ...
