Title: NRG Meeting: Distributed Algorithms for Network Size Estimation  
(Nabeel Akhtar)
In distributed systems where no entity has global knowledge about the  
network, estimating the size of the network is a core functionality for  
many distributed applications; such estimate is used for many purposes such  
as parameter value setting or network monitoring. The past decade has been  
marked by a tremendous shift in the scale and dynamism of distributed  
systems. One of the most striking consequences is that most traditional  
algorithms for distributed network-size estimation are no longer relevant  
in such a context.
In this talk, I will discuss different types of distributed algorithms for  
estimating network size in peer-to-peer (P2P) and Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks  
(VANETs). I will also show how network dynamics affect the performance of  
the algorithms and how these algorithms can be adapted to deal with such
