Distributed Cloud Computing (Dagstuhl Seminar 15072)

Authors: Yvonne Coady, James Kempf, Rick McGeer, and Stefan Schmid

Published in: Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 5, Issue 2 (2015)


Abstract
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 15072 "Distributed Cloud Computing". A distributed cloud connecting multiple, geographically distributed and smaller datacenters, can be an attractive alternative to today's massive, centralized datacenters. A distributed cloud can reduce communication overheads, costs, and latency's by offering nearby computation and storage resources. Better data locality can also improve privacy. In this seminar, we revisit the vision of distributed cloud computing, and identify different use cases as well as research challenges.

10372 Abstracts Collection and Report – User-Centric Networking

Authors: Jon Crowcroft, James Kempf, Paulo Jorge Mendes, and Rute Sofia

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 10372, User-Centric Networking (2011)


Abstract
In the latest years the highly nomadic lifestyles that Internet users experience, and the strong entanglement between society and technology, lead to the appearance of community networks where the end-user has, most of the times, an active role in terms of sharing Internet access. Such networks range from basic functionality, such as the ability to create a wireless (ad-hoc) network on-the-fly with a simple PC (e.g., Internet Connection Sharing functionality from Microsoft), or more elaborate cases of commercial success, e.g. FON. Wireless networks provided by end-users are expected to grow, despite the limitations imposed by traditional operator-centric Internet communication models. In this new scenario the end-user (or a community of end-users) is a micro-operator in the sense that he/she shares his/her subscribed broadband Internet access based on some incentive scheme. Besides Internet access sharing, being a micro-operator also means providing other network functionality, such as local mobility management and store-cache-forward mechanisms, based on the right set of incentives as well as on adequate information concerning the way people interact and move.
