This workshop will bring together a group of researchers working in specialized problem areas at the interface between mathematics/statistics and networking research to discuss recent progress and outline the main challenges associated with measuring, simulating, modeling, and analyzing large-scale, heterogeneous, and complex internetworks such as the global Internet. Topics will include modeling of component technologies such as network protocols and routers, modeling and simulation of large-scale networks, and measurement of network traffic and performance. Mathematical topics include stochastic modeling, statistical inference, and dynamical systems.

Note that there is a reception followed by a public lecture on January 7, the first day of the short course preceding this workshop. The reception runs 5-6:30 pm and the public lecture, by Steven H. Strogatz, Sync: The Emerging Science of Spontaneous Order begins at 7pm, Smith Hall 100.
