Brief Biography

Patricia holds a B.S. in Information Systems from the CUCEA University of Guadalajara and a M.S. in Information Technologies. Her M.S. degree was achieved in November 2004 with the thesis research work “Study of a quality of service system to optimize the transmition of multimedia data flows in a distributed architecture ”. Since November 2001, she has been working in the Department of Information Systems like research assistant with the PhD. research Victor M. LARIOS. Her work is oriented to Quality of Service, multimedia applications in network, distributed architectures, and P2P. Since September 2007, Patricia started her PhD in Information Technologies under the direction of Dr. Victor M. LARIOS and the Co-direction of Patrice TORGUET working in P2P architecture to support a massive multiuser environment.

Title: P2P Networking Strategies to Support Massive Online Multiuser Virtual Environments.

Abstract: Networked Virtual Reality technologies can help communities and companies of geographically distant users to collaborate in richer interactive environments. This project proposes a distributed architecture to support massively multi-user virtual reality environments providing interactive objects to handle collaborative actions among communities of users. The virtual environments developed under the DVRMedia2 framework aims to support better interaction based in peer to peer (P2P) networking technologies. To get that support, the virtual worlds are divided in regions related to the 3D environment and creating partitions of the network managing each region. The Voronoi diagrams are a strategy to connect regions and place load-balancing algorithms on each network partition to reduce the use of network bandwidth. A problem that could be present in this architecture is that each peer or user contributes to the system and some of them must have more responsibilities to manage regions, then if a peer managing a region is disconnected, the system should identify other peer to transfer the necessary data to delegate the region management in a peer’s partition.
