Networking Seminars at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis

These seminars give the opportunity to researchers and PhD students to present their work in the field of telecommunication networks. At INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, this research is leaded by three projects:
  • MASCOTTE, for the development of methods and tools, with particular emphasis on the design of telecommunication networks.circuit-switched networks and mobile networks (graph theory, parallel algorithms,...);
  • MAESTRO, for the modelling and performance evaluation of networks (queueing theory, Markov chains,...);
  • PLANETE, for the design, implementation, and evaluation of Internet protocols and applications.
  • Each week, a member of one of these three projects or an invited speaker gives a presentation of one hour, with a particular emphasis on the general problem considered and on the technics used. These seminars are intended for a large and non-specialist audience.
