Security Seminar: OpenSession

Armour College of Engineering Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department is hosting a seminar featuring Klara Nahrstedt, Professor and Associate Head of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, from 4 – 5 pm on Thursday, April 10, 2014 in the IIT Tower Auditorium. Nahrstedt will present her lecture “OpenSession: SDN-Assisted Session Management for Interactive Teleimmersive Systems.”

OpenSession aims to improve interactivity, resource utilization and scalability by decoupling application layer data and control plane functionality, and partially offload the data plane functionalities to network layer switches. The control of network switches during the session run-time happens via OpenSession which leverages the Software-Defined Networking (e.g., OpenFlow) assistance. The experiments with the cross-layer control session-network control are very encouraging, since OpenSession improves 3DTI interactivity and resource usage at the data plane.

For more information regarding the seminar, email or call Dr. Joohee Kim in ECE at 312.567.8649. This event will earn students Engineering Themes credit in Security.
