Monmouth University is proud to announce that Professor Mohammad S. Obaidat (IEEE Fellow and SCS Fellow) of the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering has published recently two books:Pervasive Computing and Networking (Wiley 2011) and Cooperative Networking (Wiley 2011). Both books can serve as excellent textbooks for graduate and senior undergraduate courses.

Pervasive Computing and Networking provides a comprehensive guide to topics, both ongoing and emerging, in pervasive computing and networking such as pervasive computing and systems, pervasive networking security, and pervasive wired and wireless networking and communication. It can be an ideal reference for practitioners and researchers working in the area of communication networking and pervasive computing and networking. For more info, visit:

Cooperative Networking discusses the issues involved in cooperative networking, namely, bottleneck resource management, resource utilization, servers and content, security, and more. In addition, it addresses instances of cooperation in nature which actively encourage the development of cooperation in telecommunication networks. This book is an ideal reference for researchers and practitioners working in the field. For more info, visit

In addition, Professor Obaidat gave the main Distinguished Keynote Speech
