Talk: "An NFV system to support service provisioning on UAV networks” - Speaker: Borja Nogales, from UC3M.
Agenda
Where: Classroom C4-021B and meet.google.com/nvc-qepq-axz

Title: "An NFV system to support service provisioning on UAV networks”

Abstract: We will describe the design an implementation of an NFV system capable of deploying moderately complex network services over a wireless ad-hoc network of resource-constrained compute nodes. The system design targets aerial networks built by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and it relies on container virtualization to support the execution of network functions within constrained environments, as well as on mobile ad-hoc networking to support the underlying end-to-end network communications. The presentation will also cover the implementation experience from developing this NFV system, which is based on relevant and widely-adopted open-source technologies in the NFV arena such as ETSI Open-Source MANO (OSM) and OpenStack. In addition, we will present the integration of this system into a distributed NFV testbed spanning three different remote sites in Spain, i.e., Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), and Universidad del País Vasco (UPV-EHU). The goal of this testbed is to explore synergies among NFV, UAVs, and 5G vertical services, following a practical approach primarily governed by experimentation.

Title: "Multi-agent navigation of autonomous vehicles and parking problems"
Abstract:  Intelligent autonomous vehicles navigating in a smart city environment need to find a parking spot, but the task of efficiently using parking resources is at odds with the selfish nature of competing agents. If we model the problem through game theory, we can evaluate the efficiency of a distributed decision mechanism. At the same time, we
also gain insight on the complexity of identifying efficient solutions and hint that the overall problem is difficult to solve without compromising the inherent selfish objective of each individual vehicle.
Bio: Leonardo Badia  received both the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. in information engineering (with highest mark) from the University of Ferrara, in year 2000 and 2004, respectively. In March 2011 he joined the faculty of the University of Padova, where he is presently an Assistant/Adjunct Professor. Leonardo Badia also held several research and teaching collaborations at various titles (lecturing and/or participations to research projects) with the Italian Universities of Padova, Pisa, Ferrara, and the IMT Advanced Studies Institute in Lucca, and also the Consorzio Ferrara Ricerche, also in Ferrara, Italy. He is author of more than 120 scientific papers published in international peer-reviewed journals or conferences. He presently serves on the Editorial Boards of the IEEE Transactions on Communications and the IEEE Wireless Communications Letters.

Title: "A Game of One/Two Strategic Friendly Jammers Versus a Malicious Strategic Node"
Abstract: This talk presents some research applications in the context of friendly jamming, where jamming is performed by the legitimate network to defeat a malicious transmitter. We will see how game theory is able to find interesting and sometimes counterintuitive behaviors when analyzing this jamming problem in the presence of one or multiple jammers.
