Title of talk
Seamless Data Communications in Space Networks

Data download from spacecrafts, such as satellites, have traditionally been carried out through dedicated links. Shared links using Internet Protocol-based communication offers a number of advantages over dedicated links. The movement of spacecrafts however give rise to mobility management issues.
This talk will discuss various networks layer and transport layer solutions for mobility management in space networks, including host mobility and networks in motion which is applicable for satellites, planes, trains, automobile etc. In the case of network in motion, rather than handing off individual hosts, it is more efficient to handover the networks between access points. This results in the handoff being transparent to the hosts and less control traffic in the resource challenged wireless networks. The talk will provide an overview of the network layer based solution being developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and compare with the end-to-end based solution (SINEMO) being developed at University of Oklahoma in conjunction with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for on networks in motion. The application of networks in motion will be illustrated for both terrestrial and space environment.

Mohammed Atiquzzaman (Senior Member, IEEE) obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1984 and 1987, respectively.  He currently holds the Edith J Kinney Gaylord Presidential professorship in the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma.

Dr. Atiquzzaman is the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Networks and Computer Applications, the founding Editor-in-Chief of Vehicular Communications, and serves/served on the editorial boards of many journals including IEEE Communications Magazine, Real Time Imaging Journal, International Journal of Communication Networks and Distributed Systems and Journal of Sensor Networks and International Journal of Communication Systems. He co-chaired the IEEE High Performance Switching and Routing Symposium (2003, 2011), IEEE Globecom and ICC (2014, 2012, 2010, 2009, 2007, 2006), IEEE VTC (2013)  and the SPIE Quality of Service over Next Generation Data Networks conferences (2001, 2002, 2003). He was the panels co-chair of INFOCOM’05, and is/has been in the program committee of many conferences such as INFOCOM, Globecom, ICCCN, ICCIT, Local Computer Networks, and serves on the review panels at the National Science Foundation. He is the current Vice Chair of IEEE Communication Society Technical Committee on Communications Switching and Routing.

Dr. Atiquzzaman received IEEE Communication Society's Fred W. Ellersick Prize, and NASA Group Achievement Award for "outstanding work to further NASA Glenn Research Center's effort in the area of Advanced Communications/Air Traffic Management's Fiber Optic Signal Distribution for Aeronautical Communications" project. He is the co-author of the book “Performance of TCP/IP over ATM networks” and has over 270 refereed publications, available at

Title of talk
Epidemic Protocols for Extreme-scale Computing [slides]

Communication and computing in extreme-scale systems is hindered by the lack of scalable and fault tolerant global communication and synchronisation methods. Epidemic protocols adopt a bio-inspired communication strategy which is based on a similar mathematical model of the exponential and incontrollable spread of infectious diseases. Epidemic protocols are suitable for large and extreme-scale, distributed and dynamic systems. They can be adopted to disseminate information and for data aggregation in extreme-scale distributed environments using randomised communication. Their advantages over global communication schemes based on deterministic overlay networks are their inherent robustness, scalability and full decentralisation. Epidemic protocols can be adopted for fault-tolerant communication and computation in very large and extreme scale systems, such as Peer-to-Peer networks, the Internet of Things and exascale supercomputers. The talk provides an overview of Epidemic protocols, discusses their applications and presents recent advances.

Giuseppe Di Fatta is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Reading, Reading, UK, where he is the Director of the MSc in Advanced Computer Science. In 1999, he was a research fellow at the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI), Berkeley, CA, USA. From 2000 to 2004, he was with the High-Performance Computing and Networking Institute of the National Research Council, Palermo, Italy. From 2004 to 2006, he was with the University of Konstanz, Konstanz, Germany. His research interests include data mining, scalable algorithms, distributed and parallel computing, and multidisciplinary Big Data applications (e.g., the analysis of human brain MRI Data). He has published over 70 articles in peer-reviewed conferences and journals. He serves in the editorial board of the Elsevier Journal of Network and Computer Applications (JNCA). He has organised and chaired international workshops and conferences in data mining, distributed systems and computer networks, and is the co-founder of the IEEE ICDM Workshop on Data Mining in Networks (DaMNet).
