Title: Content-oriented Publish/Subscribe Systems and its Application in Disaster Scenarios

From the conventional client/server model to peer-to-peer (P2P) and content distribution networks (CDNs), a variety of solutions have been developed towards efficient content distribution over the Internet. Information-centric networking (ICN) is a next paradigm for content distribution, which provides substantial flexibility for users to obtain information without knowing the source of the information or its current location. I will describe some of the work we are currently doing in the COPSS/GreenICN project which aims to build a content-oriented publish/subscribe infrastructure which supports large-scale and time-sensible ICN applications such as disaster notification where the battery, communication and computation capacity are scarce. Using trace-driven simulation, we demonstrate that COPSS can achieve scalable and efficient content-centric pub/sub-based content delivery, providing considerable performance improvements over traditional server-based system.
Speaker's short bio:
Prof. Xiaoming Fu received his Ph.D. in computer science from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2000. He was then a research staff at the Technical University Berlin until joining the faculty at the University of Goettingen, Germany in 2002, where he has been a professor in computer science and heading the Computer Networks Group since 2007. He has spent research visits at universities of Cambridge, Columbia, UCLA, Tsinghua, Nanjing, Fudan, Uppsala, and UPMC. Prof. Fu's research interests include network architectures, protocols, and applications. He is currently an editorial board member of IEEE Communications Magazine, IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management, Elsevier Computer Networks, and Computer Communications, and has served on the organization or program committees of leading conferences such as INFOCOM, ICNP, ICDCS, MOBICOM, MOBIHOC, CoNEXT and COSN. He has served as secretary (2008-2010) and vice chair (2010-2012) of the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC), and chair (2011-2013) of the Internet Technical Committee (ITC) of the IEEE Communications Society and the Internet Society. He has been involved in FP6 ENABLE, VIDIOS, Daidalos-II and MING-T projects and is the coordinator of FP7 GreenICN, MobileCloud and CleanSky projects. Prof. Fu is a recipient of the ACM ICN 2014 Best Paper Award, IEEE LANMAN 2013 Best Paper Award and the 2005 University of Goettingen Foundation Award for Exceptional Publications by Young Scholars. He is an IEEE Senior Member and an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer.
