We had the pleasure to be part of the Dagstuhl seminar Towards Climate-Friendly Internet Research, which took place on July 7–9, 2021. This was the first online Dagstuhl seminar we attended. While the online format was caused by the Corona pandemic, it actually made a lot of sense to hold the seminar in an online format given that the event was largely focused on the question how we can reduce the carbon footprint of the academic community, the network operator communities, and the standardization communities.
We helped to organize a Dagstuhl seminar on Using Networks to Teach About Networks, which took place March 12–15, 2017. During the seminar, we discussed the different approaches to teach computer networking and how to best use of online resources to better educate students. For details, see the seminar report.
We helped organize a Dagstuhl seminar on Global Measurements: Practice and Experience from January 04–07, 2016. This was a followup of the seminar on Global Measurement Framework. The second seminar aimed at discussing the practical experience gained with building global measurement platforms. It brought together people who are actively involved in the design and maintenance of global measurement systems, who do research on the data delivered by global measurement systems, and who use data derived from global measurement systems in order to manage networks or services or as input for regulatory decisions.
Our research group is taking an active leadership role in the organization of some key scientific events this year: We are involved in the organization of the demo track of the IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Management (IM 2015), which takes place in Ottawa (Canada) in May 2015. We co-chair the technical program committee of the 11th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM 2015), which takes place in Barcelona (Spain) in October 2015.
We participated in a Dagstuhl seminar on Global Measurements Framework from November 17-20, 2013. The seminar discussed challenges in running large-scale measurement platforms, the associated privacy issues, with a particular focus on how to make it more useful by regulators, Internet service providers, and network users.
