HITS focus on Computer Science presentations at national conference2016-06-10
On 1-2 June this year’s version of SNCNW, Swedish National Computer Networking Workshop, was arranged in Sundsvall. Computer Science at Karlstad University participated with four paper presentations, of which three was linked to the research profile HITS.
SNCNW is a national conference on computer communication and networking where researchers have the opportunity to present their work and meet other researchers from academia and the industry.
- SNCNW constitutes an excellent forum for researchers from all over Sweden to build a good national network. The conference is especially important for doctoral students who get a chance to build their research networks and present their projects in a smaller and friendlier context,” says Anna Brunström, professor of computer science at Karlstad University.
Together with Karl-Johan Grinnemo, senior lecturer in computer science at Karlstad University, Anna Brunström attended SNCNW 2016 and presented the following four papers:
- NEAT - A New, Evolutive API and Transport-Layer Architecture for the Internet. Karl-Johan Grinnemo (Karlstad University, Sweden), Anna Brunstrom (Karlstad University, Sweden), Tom Jones (University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom), Gorry Fairhurst (University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom), Per Hurtig (Karlstad University, Sweden), David Ros (Simula Research Laboratory, Norway)
- Getting What You Want When You Want It: Deterministic Network Emulation. Johan Garcia and Per Hurtig (Karlstad University, Sweden)
- Stream-aware Scheduling to Improve Latency for Signaling Traffic using CMT-SCTP. Johan Eklund, Karl-Johan Grinnemo and Anna Brunstrom (Karlstad University, Sweden)
- Measurement and Analysis of Network Performance in Virtualized Environment. Dejene Boru Oljira, Javid Taheri, Karl-Johan Grinnemo and Anna Brunstrom (Karlstad University, Sweden)
HITS focus on paper presentations
Three of the four papers are linked to the research profile HITS, High Quality Network Services in A Mobile World, which is run by computer science at Karlstad University. In conjunction with Swedish IT companies, the HITS researcher’s work are to produce new knowledge and technical solutions that can contribute to innovations in our increasingly mobile world.
SNCNW is an annually recurring conference that has been arranged at several different places in Sweden since 2003. In 2004 and also last year, Karlstad hosted the conference:
- We’ve been a driving force in organising the conference since its start and I’m a member of the organising team, says Anna. The conference is a good place to get a national view of the field. It’s also a pleasure to meet others working with computer communication and networking in Sweden.
