Exploring Computer Science: Alabsi Featured in National Publications

Bemidji State University’s Dr. Hamdan Alabsi, assistant professor of business administration, co-authored two research papers that were recently printed in national publications.

His paper, “A Novel SQLite-Based Bare PC Email Server,” was published in the book “Beyond Databases, Architectures and Structures – Paving the Road to Smart Data Processing and Analysis.” The paper discusses the unique features that come with using a SQLite-based mail server that runs on a bare PC with no operating system. The SQLite database is used for storing mail messages, and mail clients can send and receive email and share files using any internet browser as in a conventional system.

Alabsi also published “An API for Bare Machine Computing Applications,” in the Institute of Electrical and Electronics EngineersSoutheastCon. The paper explains how computing systems run with an operating system or kernel.
