Thesis defense

Giovanni Neglia is defending his Habilitation Thesis (HDR: Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches). Date and hour: Monday, February 27th, 15.00 Place: Euler Violet, Inria Title: Delay Tolerant Networks: from modeling to optimization Abstract: In this talk, I will present my contribution to the field of Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs). DTNs are mobile wireless networks that are only intermittently connected, because the network is sparse, or because paths are highly unstable and may change or break while being discovered (due to…
