Dear router, let me make that decision for myself: extending DTN messages with routing and delivery software codes
Carlos Borrego Iglesias,
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona –
Delay and Disruption Tolerant Networking is extremely useful when source and destination nodes are intermittently connected.
Active DTN introduces software code to improve DTN performance. DTN implementations use application-specific routing algorithms to overcome those limitations. However, current implementations do not support the concurrent execution of several routing algorithms. A solution to this problem is extending the messages being communicated by incorporating software code for forwarding, delivery, lifetime control and prioritisation purposes. Our proposal stems from the idea of moving the routing/delivery algorithms from the host to the message. This solution is compatible with Bundle Protocol (BP) and facilitates the deployment of applications with new routing and delivery needs. Additionally, a secure geographic routing protocol that learns about the mobility habits of the nodes of the network will be presented. This routing protocol uses information about the usual whereabouts of the nodes to make optimal routing decisions and makes use of homomorphic cryptographic techniques from secure multi-party computation to preserve nodes’ privacy while taking routing decisions.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
