During my stay at Bell Labs, Holmdel NJ, USA (July 26 – September 27, 2010), I worked in the group of Dr. Markus Hofmann on extending the paradigm of content-centric networking towards its applicability for more general services. This resulted in the novel concept of Service-Centric Networking (SCN). Two papers have been published at the 6th GI/ITG KuVS Fachgespräch Future Internet at Hannover and the 4th International Workshop on the Network of the Future at Kyoto. The paper is available here. Moreover, I gave invited talks on SCN at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the session on Information-Centric Networking at the Future Internet Assembly in Budapest.
At Lancaster University, UK (September 19 – November 12, 2010), I worked with several people in the Infolab21 Department, namely Proff. David Hutchison, Geoff Coulson, and Andreas Mauthe. In the area of mobile sensor networks, we came up with a novel approach to integrate emulated mobile sensors into a wireless sensor network testbed, allowing to perform experiments using real-world sensor network applications in an emulated mobile and wireless network environment. The concept has been published at the 6th Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks at Kiel. The proceedings of the workshop are available here. A publication on extensions of Service-Centric Networking is still in preparation. During my stay at UK, Prof. Simon Dobson invited me for a visit at University of St. Andrews and a talk on “Design and Evaluation of an Adaptive and Energy-Efficient MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks” in the seminar on Wireless Sensing on November 11, 2010.
From November 28 to December 18, 2010,
Finally, I visited Prof. Bharat Bhargava and the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University at West Lafayette IL, USA, from January 24 to February 2, 2011. First, I gave an invited talk on “User and Machine Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure for Distributed Testbeds” in the CERIAS seminar. Second, I talked about the “Design and Evaluation of an Adaptive and Energy-Efficient MAC Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks” in the Computer Science Colloquium.
