Scottish Networking Event (SCONE) #19
The 19th Scottish Networking Event was held at the University of Aberdeen on 20 February 2018. SCONE is the Scottish Networking Event, an informal gathering of networking and systems researchers in and around Scotland.
The SCONE meetings aim to provide a safe place for Scottish PhD students and researchers to practice presenting their ideas, and to discuss and get feedback on works in progress. The agenda comprised six short talks:
- "TCP Star: A New Congestion Control for Mobile Networks" by Morteza Kheirkhah (Aberdeen)
- "Group Communications in NB-IoT: Architecture, Procedures and Evaluation" by Galini Tsoukaneri (Edinburgh)
- "Evolving APIs to Support UDP Transport" by Tom Jones (Aberdeen)
- "On the Potential of TV White Space Spectrum to Enable a Low Cost Middle Mile Network Infrastructure" by Mohamed Kassem (Edinburgh)
- "Measuring path transparency in the Internet" by Iain Learmonth (Aberdeen)
- "Shape-Based Clustering in Wireless Sensor Networks" by Ijeoma Okeke (Aberdeen)
Following the talks, the remainder of the meeting was devoted to one-on-one discussion between PhD students and the more established researchers, to give time to talk about ongoing work, and the process of doing research. The meeting concluded with community announcements, followed by drinks and dinner.
