Institute IMDEA Networks annually holds a by-invitation-only thematic workshop in Madrid. The workshop accompanies a meeting of our Scientific Council comprised by prominent researchers. In addition to talks by Scientific Council members, the workshop includes invited talks by external experts in the research theme of the workshop. The goal of the 2012 workshop is to foster discussion on a critical aspect of research in networking: data.
The workshop program contains talks about research in Networking where data collection, data correlation from different sources and data processing play a specific role for the research being developed.
A profound understanding of the properties of services provided over the Internet no longer only requires data from Internet core and edge networks, but also from infrastructures, which play more and more dominant roles in the Internet. Data-centers and cloud computing deployments, peer-to-peer networks, content distribution networks infrastructures, as well as applications using these technologies in novel ways or wearing specific end-user properties, have, indeed, not only radically changed the perception of what the Internet is, but they have also modified the input of the Internetworking problem.
The content of the workshop is thus aimed at presenting recent research results that scientifically emphasize this aspect of the evolution of the Internet and/or how research about the Internet should be carried on, taking this evolution into account. The discussion of results showing how data-oriented research has been made more difficult in Today’s Internet and those advocating for new ways of measuring and evaluating the Internet is, hence, one of the main focus of the workshop.
