Tongji - Yale Joint Laboratory has shown latest achievements in SIGCOMM


August 22, Chen Xinxin, Wang Xin, Xiang Qiao from Tongji - Yale Joint Laboratory SNLab participated in the Annual Meeting of data communications professional group of the 29th SIGCOMM (Association for Computing Machinery, ACM for short), which took place in Florianopolis , Brazil. SIGCOMM Association annual meeting is a flagship conference of ACM in the field of communication networks, as well as a leading international conference in the field of communication networks.


The annual meeting lasted for 3 days, bringing top experts in the field of today's networks together. A total of 41 long papers, 21 poster papers and 19 prototype were discussed and presented at the meeting, which include software-defined network (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), WAN traffic engineering, network monitoring and diagnostics, dispatching and allocating of resources in data center network, as well as wireless communications and other important research area in the area of network.


SNLab published two posters in this conference, which are FAST: A Simple Programming Abstraction for Complex State-Dependent SDN Programming , which presented a state-driven network automation software-defined network control plane state programming model; and  magellan: Generating multi-table Datapath from Datapath Oblivious Algorithmic SDN Policies , which designed the magellan system for software-defined high-level programming language network control plane automatically converted to meet the data plane multi-stage pipeline flow table different hardware settings.


This is the first time Tongji University participates in the event. Two piece of work are well received and caused heated discussions in academic area, and has also attracted the attention of HP, Google, VMWare, Huawei, Barefoot and other industry giants. Members of the lab has expanded the horizons of the future research work by communication and discuss with the experts.
