Network Architectures: Internet Routing (Seminar, WS 2012/13)
The Internet influences our life more and more:
Many of us use electronic mail instead of writing with pen and paper;
homebanking and ordering books over the web are in everyday life; and
elections via Internet are in field tests. Furthermore, the
interconnectedness gets denser and the day is near that every coffee
maker is programmable through the internet and every car connects to
its manufacturer for diagnosis.
This seminar deals with recent findings and scientific research papers concerning Internet routing. Topics range from improvement of routing algorithms, such as for the Internet, wireles mesh networks, or overlay networks, over topology detection and emulation to traffic engineering or secure routing.
- The mandatory preparatory meeting takes place on 19 October 2012, 2:00 p.m. in room TEL 1118/19.
