To present her first paper (!) on “Looking Glass of NFV: Inferring the Structure and State of NFV Network from External Observations“. Congrats to Yilei!
In Penn State Today (March 4, 2019), the top story titled “Researchers look for successful end to power grid failures” is about our newly started NSF project Coupled cAscade Modeling, Prevention, and Recovery (CAMPR)!
This paper complements our INFOCOM’19 paper on NFV Topology Inference, by focusing on a subproblem called “weight inference problem” that infers the categories of edges in the ground truth topology and the sum edge weight in each category, both from end-to-end multicast measurements. Congrats to Yilei for your second paper and keep up the good […]
Our paper “Adaptive Federated Learning in Resource Constrained Edge Computing Systems” has been accepted to the Special Issue of IEEE JSAC on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Networking and Communications! This is the journal version of our earlier INFOCOM paper, in collaboration with Dr. Shiqiang Wang, Dr. Theodoros Salonidis, and Dr. Christian Makaya at […]
Yilei’s paper on “Looking Glass of NFV: Inferring the Structure and State of NFV Network from External Observation”, Vaji’s paper on “Service Placement and Request Scheduling for Data-intensive Applications in Edge Clouds“, and our collaborator Stephen’s work on “Service Placement with Provable Guarantees in Heterogeneous Edge Computing Systems“, all funded by DAIS ITA. Congratulations to […]
The paper considers a hot problem, fast rule updates, in the context of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) from a novel perspective of path selection. The solution essentially load-balances among switches to minimize update time at the straggler switch. See details at TNSM’18.
At the DAIS ITA Annual Fall Meeting this week (9/10-12/2018), we presented two papers and three posters based on our ITA-funded projects and related projects. These are based on four long papers currently under submission, so stay tuned. First-time formal presentations for Hanlin and Yilei, good job! Besides interesting discussions, we also had a great […]
The first is about a new application domain of network tomography where there might be malicious nodes that can manipulate measurements to mislead network tomography. The second is a joint proposal with Dr. Nilanjan Chaudhuri and Dr. Tom La Porta to study mechanisms of failure cascading in interdependent power-communication networks, as well mechanisms to prevent […]
Our paper titled “Online Mechanism Design using Reinforcement Learning for Cloud Resource Allocation” is accepted to the AAMAS-IJCAI Workshop on Agents and Incentives in Artificial Intelligence (AI^3) 2018. This is a cross-border, cross-project work with Prof. Sebastian Stein at University of Southampton that is funded by the DAIS-ITA program. The paper talks about how to […]
Diman successfully defended her thesis on May 23 (yes, this post is delayed). She will start in July as a post-doc at HP Labs, working on some very interesting projects on SDN. Best luck, Diman!
