Fall Quarter (2006-07).


11/13/06 Note the SPECIAL TIME AND PLACE for our first talk of the year, November 16
11/13/06 Recently, there has been tremendous interest throughout the country in the arena of Clean Slate Networking. At Stanford alone, at least 18 faculty members have been observed assisting the project in its goal of producing "unconventional, bold, and long-term research that tries to break the network's ossification."

As such we are delighted to announce that for Fall and Winter Quarters of the 2006-2007 school year, the Stanford Networking Seminar will host a special series of Clean Slate talks. You can look forward to an excellent series of speakers with special emphasis on addressing the questions on how to redesign a global communications infrastructure. This includes - but is not restricted to - topics on network architecture, physical layer technologies, security, and economics & policy.

What is it?

The goal of the Stanford Networking Seminar is to
  • Build a year-round forum for students and researchers to learn about current trends and new results in networking research.
  • Bring together Stanford networking researchers with disparate interests.
  • Provide a forum for networking researchers with diverse perspectives to collectively discuss current networking research.
It features outstanding networking researchers from academia and industry talking about topics that range from network and communications protocols to distributed system applications and network security.

In the fall and winter quarters the seminar takes place on Thursdays in Gates 104. Free lunch (sometimes with drinks) is offered from 12:15-12:40 PM followed by a presentation until no later than 1:30PM. The remainder of the time is reserved for discussion. Currently it is not possible to take this seminar for credit in the fall and winter quarters.

Directions to the Gates Building:  If we have reserved a "G" parking permit for you (for instance, if you are the speaker), you should park right behind the Gates building.  If not, you can follow these driving directions and park at the "parking structure 1".

Recommended prerequisites for both versions of this seminar are CS244a, CS244b.
