Multiagent Communications and Networking Lab

MCNL members (May 2022)

Multiagent Communications and Networking Lab headed by Prof. Hyunggon Park is a research entity in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, College of Engineering, Ewha Womans University.

Our research has focused on machine learning based distributed decision making strategies for multi-agent network systems, intelligent and automatic resource management strategies for 5G network systems, efficient and robust data streaming strategies using network coding, big data analytics for Internet of Things (IoT) and data stream mining systems based on machine learning, fairness and optimality paradigms for resource management. All information about our current projects, with brief description of the results and the links to current publications, can be found on Research page.

We are actively recruiting graduate students and postdocs. If you are interested in our group, please send me an email with your CV (or resume).

Active Projects

  • Graph Neural Networks for Inter-separable Sparse Networks in 5G/B5G
    • Funding Agency: National Research Foundation (NRF), Ministry of Science and ICT
    • Principal Investigator (100,000 USD/year, Mar. 2020 - Feb. 2023)
    • Summary: With the goal of building inter-separable sparse networks based on graph neural networks in 5G (5th Generation)/B5G (Beyond 5G) in a 5G/B5G network environment, we intend to develop a network data analytics and inference engine based on machine learning algorithms, an inter-separable sparse network algorithm that can independently support vertical services and an inter-separable network platform.

  • Supervised Agile Machine Learning Techniques for Network Automation based on Network Data Analytics Function
    • Funding Agency: Institute for Information & Communication Technology Promotion (IITP), Ministry of Science and ICT
    • Principal Investigator (400,000 USD/year, Apr. 2019 - Dec. 2021)
    • Summary: For 5G network architecture that aims to provide multiple services based on network slicing in single physical network, network automation is essential. For this, we intend to develop algorithms that can analyze network data based on supervised machine learning, design a framework that enables rapid conversion (agile) of a network that can provide customized services, and automatically configure an adaptive and flexible optimal network for services in realtime. For this, we develop an algorithm that can determine the optimal network based on a deep neural network (DNN) and design a DNN to SDN (DNN2SDN) framework.

    • Funding Agency: Ewha Womans University
    • Faculty Participant (100,000 USD/1.5 year, Jul. 2019 - Dec. 2020)
    • Summary: We intend to develop a Korean language processing model that can diagnose the types of language processing impairment in the elderly by applying connectionism model and machine learning.




May 2020: A journal paper, "Non-iterative Coordinated Beamforming for Multicell MIMO Heterogeneous Networks" authored by Prof. Minhae Kwon and Prof. Hyunggon_Park , is published in Wireless Personal Communications. In this paper, we propose a low complexity algorithm for designing non-iterative beamforming vectors that can improve the signal to noise ratio in multicell MIMO heterogeneous networks.
