Subject: [Nrg-l] Remainder - Friday December 14 @ 10am
Invited Speaker: Agustin Chaintreau
Opportunistic Mobile Social Networks
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 encouraged.
