Support for most of my research projects comes primarily from the National Science Foundation and from industrial partners; most recently Comcast, and in the past companies such as Sprint Labs, Nortel Networks, and Siemens (see individual project pages for details).
June 2013: Steven Weber presented a poster at the W-PIN+NetEcon 2013 Workshop in Pittsburgh, which described some preliminary results on the impact of correlation in user affinities when bundling network services. An extended abstract is available here.
December 2012: The paper entitled “Online Opinion Formation and Social Interactions,” co-authored with L. Yan, K. Hosanagar, Y. Tan, and S. Venkatesh, was presented at the WITS 2012 Workshop, Orlando, FL, December 2012.
October 2012: The paper entitled “A Distributed Routing Protocol for Predictable Rates in Wireless Mesh Networks,” co-authored with B. Arzani and A. Ribeiro, was presented at the 2012 IEEE ICNP Conference, Austin, TX, October 2012.
Our IPv6 Monitoring project has now been gathering data on IPv6 adoption for several years. It has also been tracking basic web performance when accessing web sites over either Ipv6 and Ipv4 to determine if and why differences may still be present. Most of the data is available on the project web site that also boasts a “query” page that allows you to customize the type of data you want to retrieve. (See the project's original introductory presentation -the audio unfortunately only starts about 7 mins into the presentation- given at the Summer 2010 ESCC/Internet2 Joint Techs conference). The project started as a joint project with Comcast and was subsequently supported by an NSF grant that enabled us to better explore the data we were gathering as well as improve the web interface that provides access to the data.
