Guest Talk "Massive-Scale Parallel Network Simulations, Past, Present and Future"

We're pleased to announce a guest talk by George Riley, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology.


When: Friday, March 1st, 2013, at 10am
Where: i4 seminar room, building E1, room 4105, 1. floor
Title: "Massive-Scale Parallel Network Simulations, Past, Present and Future"

Abstract:
Discrete event simulation tools for analyzing performance of computer networks have been available for decades, dating back to the early days of the venerable ns-2, continuing through GTNetS, SSFNet, ROSSNet, and most recently ns-3.  At each step along the way various developers and researchers have reported on "large-scale" simulation experiments using these tools.  As the available hardware platforms grow in scale, the scale of of network simulation experiments have grown similarly.  In this talk, we will discuss the various reported "large-scale" or "massive-scale" experiments, the approach used to achieve the larger scale and the drawbacks of the experiments.  Finally, we will try to look a bit in to the future to see where this field might be in the coming years.

Short Bio:
Dr. Riley received his Ph.D. from the Georgia Tech College of Computing in August 2001, and joined the faculty of ECE at that time. Mr. Riley received a MSCS from Florida Tech in 1996, and a BSEE from University of Alabama in 1972. Prior to enrolling at Tech in 1996, Mr. Riley was president and CEO of Infoware, Inc. of Cocoa Beach Florida. From 1987 to 1996 Infoware provided software and system design services to the United States Air Force at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida. During that time, Infoware designed, implemented, and deployed numerous systems in support the missile launch activities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, including a communications front-end processor for real-time data gathering and a real-time distributed flight safety display system. Concurrently, from 1984 to 2000, Mr. Riley was also vice-president and co-owner of CAM Systems Inc. of Atlanta Georgia. CAM systems developed, under Mr. Riley's direction, a suite of PC based software tools for residential property management.
