Masked LARk: Masked Learning, Aggregation and Reporting worKflow

TLDR
A secure multi-party compute (MPC) protocol that utilizes ”helper” parties to train models, so that once data leaves the browser, no downstream system can individually construct a complete picture of the user activity.

Enhanced collision resolution and throughput analysis for the 802.11 distributed coordination function

TLDR
The proposed algorithm aims to reduce the collision probability without affecting the channel access time and delay, and shows that both the saturation throughput and maximum throughput of the algorithm are higher than those of BEB and EIED.

Mitigating the effect of negative link correlation on contention mechanism of MAC protocols in wireless sensor networks

: The existence of link correlation has been empirically validated, and different exemplary works exploit the link correlation in the designing of various network protocols. In this work, the authors

Collision Avoidance Methodology in Internet of Things and Wireless Ad hoc Network

TLDR
A busy tone-based medium access control scheme to avoid problems in fully as well as non-fully connected environment and the problems concerning wireless communication, which affects the performance of networks and their solutions are discussed.

An energy efficient IS-MAC based on distributed coordination function (DCF) for wireless passive sensor networks

TLDR
A new MAC algorithm is proposed on the concept of S-MAC issues which have contentions window (CWs) according to carrier - sense his secure in S- MACI & IS-MACI algorithm and capable to modify CW based on the system traffic, energy spent reduced in IS- MAC (Improved Sensor MAC).

IPBM: an energy efficient reliable interference-aware periodic broadcast messaging protocol for MANETs

TLDR
The proposed interference awareness mechanism of IPBM, in which the transmission power of the units is increased at certain periods, significantly reduces the packet loss caused by the interference problem and IPBM achieves an important amount of increase in the link reliability as well as in goodput among the evaluated solutions.

MAC Protocols for Wireless Mesh Networks with Multi-beam Antennas: A Survey

TLDR
The paper first discusses some basic information in designing multi-beam antenna system and MAC protocols, and then presents the main challenges for the MAC protocols in wireless mesh networks compared with the traditional MAC protocols.
