Workshop on Internet Topology and Economics | November 12-14, 2012

November 12-14, 2012 at Georgia Tech

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: Constantine Dovrolis (School of Computer Science, GaTech), Prasad Tetali (School of Mathematics & School of Computer Science, GaTech), Alex Fabrikant (Google), Michael Schapira (Hebrew University & Google), and Andrey Raigorodsky (Yandex Corporate, Moscow State University & Moscow Inst. of Physics and Technology)


Workshop Theme

The Internet is composed of tens of thousands of interconnected diverse, self-owned smaller networks, called Autonomous Systems (ASes). These ASes engage in strategic decision making to maximize their profits, reliability and performance. The business agreements (e.g. peering and transit) between these ASes play a major role in how the Internet is structured today and how it evolves over time. This important aspect creates a strong connection between networking research, economics and game-theoretic network formation models.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together these different communities from research (Internet Topology Measurement, Economics, Theoretical Computer Science, Network Science) and related industry (ISPs, Content Providers, CDNs etc.) to help narrow the gap between research and operational practice.
