Titel: Algorithms for Flexible Networks: Opportunities and Challenges
Networked systems are becoming increasingly flexible, along three main dimensions: routing (enabler: software-defined networking), embedding (enabler: virtualization), and topology (enabler: reconfigurable optical technologies). This introduces great optimization opportunities but also new algorithmic challenges. In particular, these additional flexibilities can render network operation more complex. In this talk, I will give some examples of such opportunities and challenges, and will discuss open research problems. I will then sketch the vision of “self-adjusting networks”: networks which optimize and repair themselves in a more autonomous manner.
