Talks and Tutorial

SBRC 2012 has the pleasure to announce the invited talks and tutorials:

Talk 1

Speakers: Fabrício Tamusiunas and Poliana Reis, NIC.br
Title: Measuring the Quality of the Backbone between Autonomous Systems in Brazil: Problem Tracking (in portuguese)
Schedule: Tuesday, May 1st, 09am - 10am

Abstract: Since March 2011, the CGI.br (Brazilian Internet Steering Committee) has been measuring the quality of data communication between brazilian Autonomous Systems, with the participation of tens of ASes of the brazilian Internet. With this original project in Brazil, it is possible to trace the quality of data communication over the brazilian backbone, allowing a detailed assessment of the quality between its infra-structure and that of its participants. This talk will show how providers can benefit from the collected data.

Bios: Fabrício Tamusiunas is a project manager, working in the CEPTRO/NIC.br on projects related to Internet quality measurement. He has also worked in the academy before, at UFRGS.
Poliana Reis has a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering with emphasis on Tecommunications from the Instituto Nacional de Telecomunicações and a Master degree in Computer Science from IME. Poliana currently works at NIC.br on projects related to Internet quality measurement.

Talk 2

Speaker: Christophe Diot , Technicolor
Title: Challenges in Digital Services Delivery: The Cloud vs. The Crowd
Schedule: Tuesday, May 1st, 10:30am - 12pm

Abstract: The universal answer to home service delivery these days seems to be "The Cloud", even though nobody really agrees on what "The Cloud" is. In order to bring some transparency to the Cloud, we identify what are the challenges in digital home services delivery, discuss the strengths and limitations of a pure cloud approach, and finally propose an hybrid solution relying both on data centers and home devices to better serve home users. We discuss the research and technology challenges that have to be solved to deploy this digital service delivery architecture.

Talk 4

Speaker: Deep Medhi, University of Missouri-Kansas City
Title: Multi-layer Networks, Network Virtualization, and System Stability
Schedule: Tuesday, May 1st, 4pm - 5:30pm

Abstract: Network deployment architecture is multi-layered in nature, for example, IP over DWDM. In recent years, this architecture is further extended due to services that use overlays and network virtualization. Similarly, below IP, additional functionalities such as OTN (optical transport network) are being interjected between IP and DWDM. In such multi-layer networks, usually each layer operates its routing and traffic engineering function in different time scales. In this talk, I will discuss the impact on network optimization and design, protection and restoration, and potential impact on system stability with the disappearance of time-scale of changes in each layer.

Talk 7

Speaker: Christophe Diot, Technicolor
Title: Pocket Switched Networks: Mobility at work
Schedule: Wednesday, May 2nd, 2pm - 3pm

Abstract: Departing from most simulation based works performed in academia, we survey 5 years of pioneering work in the area of opportunistic ad-hoc communication taking both an experimental and analytical approach. The presentation has two parts: We present first the major findings that we have made on human mobility and on the feasibility of opportunistic ad-hoc communication. We then describe our research on epidemic communication in social communities. We show that the key parameter in opportunistic content dissemination is the density of contact, and that the social characteristics of the nodes have very little impact. We discuss the overall idea of content mobility and identify directions for future research.

Talk 8

Speaker: Scott Shenker, University of California - Berkeley
Title: Software-Defined Networking: History, Hype, and Hope
Schedule: Thursday, May 3rd, 10:30am - 12am

Abstract: Software-Defined Networking (SDN) has all the signs of a fad: massive hype in the trade rags, an increasing number of academic papers, and widespread confusion about what SDN really means (Isn't it just OpenFlow? Isn't it all about centralization? Isn't it all just hot air?). This talk will try to dispel some of this confusion by discussing how SDN arises from a few natural abstractions for the network control plane.

Bio: Scott Shenker spent his academic youth studying theoretical physics but soon gave up chaos theory for computer science . Continuing to display a remarkably short attention span, his research over the years has wandered from computer performance modeling and computer networks to game theory and economics. Unable to hold a steady job, he currently splits his time between the U. C. Berkeley Computer Science Department and the International Computer Science Institute.

Tutorial

Speaker: Deep Medhi, University of Missouri-Kansas City
Title: Internet Routing
Schedule: Monday, April 30th, 2pm - 5pm

Abstract: Routing in the Internet in its simplest form plays the role of carrying information between two end devices. Due to the structure of the Internet being federated, many components need to play together to make routing between two end devices work, and more importantly, make it work efficiently. In this tutorial, I’ll present an overview of Internet routing. Topics to include are: basics of intra- and inter-domain routing, BGP and policies, Internet routing architecture, Internet exchange points, and issues such as IP prefix hijacking. Also, emerging approaches such as LISP (locator-ID split) and its use in the Internet routing architecture will be presented.
