Members of IMDEA Networks’ scientific council and invited speakers
20 May 2019 - 13:30 to 21 May 2019 - 13:00 (Madrid Time)

MR-1S1 [Torres] & MR-1S3 [Quevedo], IMDEA Networks Institute, Avda. del Mar Mediterráneo 22, 28918 Leganés – Madrid

In this workshop a group of renowned experts will deliver keynotes and participate in panels to assess where networking research stands today, and more important, where it is heading in the future. We will discuss developments in both traditional networking application domains such (SDN, 5G, and IoT) and new tools for them (Machine Learning, Blockchain) as well as new direction going beyond traditional networking (data protection, algorithmic discrimination & bias, news & (dis)information spread). The workshop will also include invited talks covering the broader environment in which networking research exists, including business trends and development in telcos and ICT services in general, policy issues, as well as innovation and tech transfer.
