	Invited Speaker: Agustin Chaintreau
	
	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 encouraged.

	Place: Grad Lounge
	Time: 10am
