  • Application-driven network management with ProtoRINA 

    Wang, Yuefeng; Matta, Ibrahim; Akhtar, Nabeel (IEEE, 2016)
    Traditional network management is tied to the TCP/IP architecture, thus it inherits its many limitations. Additionally there is no unified framework for application management, and service providers have to rely on their ...
  • Pricing differentiated brokered internet services 

    Ghasemi, Maryam; Matta, Ibrahim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Price war, as an important factor in undercutting competitors and attracting customers, has spurred considerable work that analyzes such conflict situation. However, in most of these studies, quality of service (QoS), as ...
  • On distributed virtual network embedding with guarantees 

    Esposito, Flavio; Di Paola, Donato; Matta, Ibrahim (2016-02)
    To provide wide-area network services, resources from different infrastructure providers are needed. Leveraging the consensus-based resource allocation literature, we propose a general distributed auction mechanism for the ...
  • An analysis of acceptance policies for blockchain transactions 

    Neumayer, Seb; Varia, Mayank; Eyal, Ittay (2018)
    The standard acceptance policy for a cryptocurrency transaction at most exchanges is to wait until the transaction is placed in the blockchain and followed by a certain number of blocks. However, as noted by Sompolinsky ...
  • Reinforcement learning for UAV attitude control 

    Koch, William; Mancuso, Renato; West, Richard; Bestavros, Azer (2018)
    Autopilot systems are typically composed of an "inner loop" providing stability and control, while an "outer loop" is responsible for mission-level objectives, e.g. way-point navigation. Autopilot systems for UAVs are ...
  • Active network alignment: A matching-based approach 

    Malmi, Eric; Gionis, Aristides; Terzi, Evimaria (2017)
    Network alignment is the problem of matching the nodes of two graphs, maximizing the similarity of the matched nodes and the edges between them. This problem is encountered in a wide array of applications---from biological ...
  • Finding low-tension communities 

    Galbrun, Esther; Gionis, Aristides; Golshan, Behzad; Terzi, Evimaria (2017-11-06)
    Motivated by applications that arise in online social media and collaboration networks, there has been a lot of work on community-search and team-formation problems. In the former class of problems, the goal is to find a ...
  • Community-aware network sparsification 

    Gionis, Aristides; Tatti, Nikolaj; Rozenshtein, Polina; Terzi, Evimaria (2017-06-11)
    Network sparsification aims to reduce the number of edges of a network while maintaining its structural properties; such properties include shortest paths, cuts, spectral measures, or network modularity. Sparsification has ...
  • Opinion dynamics with varying susceptibility to persuasion 

    Tsourakakis, Charalampos; Kleinberg, Jon; Parkes, David; Abebe, Rediet
    A long line of work in social psychology has studied variations in people's susceptibility to persuasion -- the extent to which they are willing to modify their opinions on a topic. This body of literature suggests an ...
  • Workload characterization of the shared/buy-in computing cluster at Boston University 

    Klausner, Yonatan; Liao, Christopher; Simhon, Eran; Bestavros, Azer; Starobinski, D. (2016)
    Computing clusters provide a complete environment for computational research, including bio-informatics, machine learning, and image processing. The Shared Computing Cluster (SCC) at Boston University is based on a ...
