*Opportunistic Mobile Social Networks *

*Abstract: *
Portable devices with increasing storage and communication capabilities 
becomes more common everyday. For delay-tolerant applications, these 
devices may exploit human mobility and
local contacts, bypassing infrastructure to extend services and increase 
capacity. This talk presents a couple of issues related with the theory 
and practice of such opportunistic mobile networks. The notion of the 
diameter of a network is revisited with regard to time, as we provide 
evidences that the small world effects are relevant even under an 
optimal delay. We then describe a practical case of mobile social 
application that is being tested this week among participants of a 
conference. Questions and discussions about this topic are highly
