E2EMON 2008 & NOMS 2008

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

On the 6th of April, the 6th IEEE Workshop on End-to-End Monitoring Techniques and Services (E2EMon 2008) took place at Salvador, da Bahia, Brazil. E2EMon is a workshop focusing on advances in end-to-end (e2e) monitoring technology, and particularly new distributed monitoring techniques for emerging technologies such as grid, overlay, peer-to-peer (p2p) and ad-hoc networks, e2e path measurements, and monitoring for security. At the workshop we exchanged ideas and experiences with other researchers, concerning the next-generation of monitoring systems.

The keynote speech was titled “Monitoring on the Next Generation Internet” and was presented by Philippe Owezarski (LAAS). Apart from the keynote speech 12 papers were presented consisting of 8 technical and 4 short papers. On behalf of the DCS laboratory of ICS FORTH we presented 3 papers, one technical and two short. The technical paper was titled “Evaluation of Compression of Remote Network Monitoring Data Streams” by Peter I. Politopoulos, Evangelos P. Markatos, Sotiris Ioannidis and the two short papers were titled “Monitoring Three National Research Networks for Eight Weeks: Observations and Implications” by Demetris Antoniades, Michalis Polychronakis, Nick Nikiforakis,and Evangelos P. Markatos and “When AppMon met Stager” by Nick Nikiforakis, Demetres Antoniades, Evangelos Markatos, Sotiris Ioannidis.


FORWARD in “The Future of the Internet”

Friday, April 18th, 2008

The FORWARD project participated in the event “The Future of the Internet: Perspectives emerging from R&D in Europe” organized by the Slovenian Government, in the context of the Slovenian Presidency of the EU 2008, which was held in Bled, Slovenia between 31 March-2 April 2008. The aim of the conference and the associated workshop was to foster the exchange of ideas and emerging solutions towards a coherent approach for excellence and innovation in the future Internet.

During the two-day technical workshop sessions, representatives of European research projects funded by the 7th Framework Programme discussed emerging concepts and ideas in groups themed around the topics of Networks, Services, Content, Security, and Experimental Facilities. Some of the challenges outlined in the Security session included identity management, trust, vulnerabilities and threats in emerging platforms, experimental facilities, as well as legislation and economics and their links with security. In the Security, Privacy and Trust session, Sotiris Ioannidis from FORTH-ICS participated in the panel that discussed “Cross-issues in Network Infrastructures and Experimental Facilities” .

The FORWARD project also signed the Bled Declaration titled “Towards a European approach to the Future Internet” which calls on European Internet scientific and economic actors, researchers, industrialists, SMEs, users, service and content providers, to “redesign the Internet, taking a broad multidisciplinary approach, to meet Europe’s societal and commercial ambitions.”
