(Communication Networks (ComNet

All Research Groups

Overview

Our mission is to address the research problems within the context of communication networks. The research trends vary from network design perspective to real-time event simulation. The group have international collaborations with world leading researchers. The research group of Communication Networks (ComNet) is a growing group in the Computer Science Department – University of Kerbala.
