Support for most of my research projects comes primarily from the National Science Foundation and from industrial partners; most recently Google and in the past companies such as Comcast, Huawei, Sprint Labs, Nortel Networks, and Siemens (see Past project pages for details).
Fall 2019: CSE 473 - Introduction to Computer Networks
Fall 2020: CSE 538 - Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computer Systems. Note: that the wiki has been modified to account for the hybrid nature, i.e., accessible both online and in-person of the course this semester. So, both its format and structure are somewhat different from that used in other years.
August 2020: Our new project titled “CNS Core: Small: Exploring the Benefits of Non-Work-Conserving Networking,” NSF CNS-2006530, was just awarded. I’m looking forward to start working on it and will be looking for a new student.
August 2020: The Technical Program of the ICNP 2020 conference was just finalized. We ended accepting 30 papers out of 185 submissions with papers going through a thorough review process and a comprehensive shepherding phase to ensure the highest quality publications. Peter Steenkiste and I are grateful to all members of the Technical Program Committee who worked tirelessly to select an outstanding technical program. We are looking to seeing you all (mostly virtually) at ICNP in October.
March 2020: I am serving, together with Peter Steenkiste, as Program co-Chair for the ICNP 2020 conference. That will be held in Madrid, Spain, in October. Please consider submitting to the conference. It is single-track and of high quality. The abstract registration deadline is 11:59pm EDT (midnight) on May 19, 2020, with full papers due by 11:59am (noon) on May 26, 2020.
December 2019: The paper titled "Pricing (and Bidding) Strategies for Delay Differentiated Cloud Services" co-authored with my Ph.D. student Jiayi Song has been accepted for publications in the ACM Transactions on Economics and Computation (TEAC). Here is a temporary link to the paper, while waiting until the final version is available on the ACM DL.
August 2019: The 2019 ACM SIGCOMM conference was successfully held for the first time in China in Beijing. Our thanks to Jianping Wu and Wendy Hall, the two General Chairs, as well as Yong Cui and Xiangyang Li, the two vice-Chairs for a very successful conference that shattered past attendance records. If you go to the conference Program page, you will find links to the papers and their slides as well as streamed videos from all the sessions. Enjoy!
Our IPv6 Monitoring project gathered several years of data on IPv6 adoption and tracked basic web performance when accessing web sites over either IPv6 and IPv4 to determine if and why differences were present. Most of the data remains 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. The insight derived from the data gathered as part of this project was ultimately documented in a paper titled “Migrating the Internet to IPv6: An exploration of the when and why,” co-authored with M. Nikkhah and published in 2016 in the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking.
