Keynote Presentations

I have initiated, invented, and managed the activities of six novel architectures for networking, computing and storage.
The results of these activities have been published within the following collections of papers and patents (more than 120 journa and conference papers and 45 US and European patents, in a rough chronological order):

I. "GREEN INTERNET": Optical Fractional Lambda Switching for optical networks with optimized scalability and power requirements. [Related to IP-FLOW]
II. Remote authentication of software during execution for protection on servers, networks and content. [related to the "TrustedFlow" part of IP-FLOW]
III. Global IP packet switching with pipeline forwarding, optimized for steaming media applications.
IV. Embedding of virtual rings in arbitrary topology networks, optimized for large-scale distributed computing.
V. Ring networks with spatial bandwidth reuse, fairness, traffic integration, etc.
VI. Optical hypergraph for combining multiple passive optical stars with synchronization and pipeline forwarding. [See also Ph.D. Thesis] Education and Professional Positions
