  • Abstract: SDN's logically centralized control provides an insertion point for programming the network. While it is generally agreed that higherlevel abstractions are needed to make that programming easy, there is little consensus on what are the "right" abstractions. Indeed, as SDN moves beyond its initial... more
  • Abstract: The emerging software-defined networking (SDN) technology decouples the control plane from the data plane in a computer network with open and standardized interfaces, and hence opens up the network designers' options and ability to innovate. The wide adoption of SDN in industry has motivated the... more
  • Abstract: This paper focuses on the optimal sensor placement problem for the identification of pipe failure locations in large-scale urban water systems. The problem involves selecting the minimum number of sensors such that every pipe failure can be uniquely localized. This problem can be viewed as a... more
