S-IbrahimThis seminar builds on your basic knowledge of computer networks from an introductory computer networks class or equivalent. It covers mathematical and algorithmic foundations of the essential networking functions of data transfer, transfer control, and management. Essential concepts of some techniques, such as optimization, control theory, queuing theory, and their application to networks are covered.

Architectural considerations for building networks that are resilient, scalable, secure, and market-driven, are discussed.


  • Introduction
  • Basics of Performance Evaluation
  • Naming, Addressing, and Communication Principles
  • Connection Management and Transport Principles
  • Routing Principles and Protocols
  • Flow/Congestion Control Principles and Protocols
  • Control Theoretic Modeling and Architectural Implications

Duration: 15 hours

Who is Ibrahim Matta?

Ibrahim Matta received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1995. He is a professor of computer science at Boston University. His research involves transport and routing protocols for the Internet and wireless networks; feedback-based control design and analysis; architectures for protocol design and large-scale traffic management; modeling and performance evaluation. His current projects include recursive and energy-efficient network architectures and protocols. He published over 100 peer-reviewed technical papers, and was guest co-editor of four special journal issues. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 1997. He is the Technical Program Co-chair of the upcoming 2012 IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications, and the TPC co-chair of the 10th International Conference on Wired/Wireless Internet Communications. He has recently been the TPC chair of the IEEE ICCCN 2011 Track of Network Algorithms and Performance Evaluation, and TPC co-chair in 2011 of the flagship workshop of the IEEE Technical Committee on Computer Communications. He served on many program committees, including those of ICNP, Infocom, MobiCom, and MobiHoc. He was on the Editorial Board of the Computer Networks Journal, General Chair of WiOpt’06, TPC co-chair of ICNP’05, TPC co-chair of SenMetrics’05, Internet Co-chair of Infocom’05, Publication Chair of Infocom’03, and Tutorial and Panel Chair of Hot Interconnects’01. He was co-organizer and TPC co-chair of the EU-US NeXtworking’03. He is a senior member of both the ACM and the IEEE.
