Dr. Abdul Salam has published a new book entitled "Internet of Things for Sustainable Community Development."

The publisher is Springer Nature. Dr. Salam was advised by Susan J. Rosowski Professor Mehmet Can Vuran, whom he has been working with in the Cyber-Physical Networking lab since 2013. Currently, he is an assistant professor in department of Computer and Information Technology, Purdue University.

This book covers how Internet of Things (IoT) has a role in shaping the future of our communities. The author shows how the research and education ecosystem promoting impactful solutions-oriented science can help citizenry, government, industry, and other stakeholders to work collaboratively in order to make informed, socially-responsible, science-based decisions. Accordingly, he shows how communities can address complex, interconnected socio-environmental challenges. This book addresses the key inter-related challenges in areas such as the environment, climate change, mining, energy, agro-economic, water, and forestry that are limiting the development of a sustainable and resilient society -- each of these challenges are tied back to IoT based solutions.
