TOPIC Scalable Analytic Solutions to Some Networking Problems 
AREA Communications & Networks  
SPEAKER Professor Moshe Zukerman, City University of Hong Kong 
DATE 24 July 2015, Friday 
TIME 10:00 am to 11:00 am 
VENUE Seminar room E5-03-21, Engineering blk E5, Faculty of Engineering, NUS 
FEES No Charge 

In this talk, several networking research problems will be presented for which scalable models and analyses can provide useful answers. This will include an optimization problem that aims to minimize cost of a multilayer network model that considers stochastic traffic composed of heavy tailed flows. It will enable decisions on flow size dependent routing and the choice of dynamic optical circuit switching.

In addition, it will include a discussion on models and related performance analyses of optical networks and enable evaluation of the trade-off between capacity dimensioning and wavelength conversion.

Moshe Zukerman received his B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management and his M.Sc. in Operation Research from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. degree in Engineering from The University of California Los Angeles in 1985. During 1986-1997 he served in Telstra Research Laboratories (TRL). During 1997-2008 he was with The University of Melbourne. In Dec 2008, he joined City University of Hong Kong where he is a Chair Professor of Information Engineering. He has served on the editorial boards of various journals such as IEEE JSAC, IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Communications Magazine, Computer Networks and Computer communications, and on numerous technical program committees of national and international conferences. Prof. Zukerman has over 350 publications in scientific journals and conference proceedings. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and has served as a member and Chair of the IEEE Koji Kobayashi Computers and Communications Award Committee.
