Abstract: In this talk, I will give an overview of the recent R&D activities related to networking at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), a research unit of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation. Such research activities concern mainly network monitoring, characterization, modeling, and analysis; network science; and the application of networking technologies in health informatics. In particular, the talk will cover three representative on-going projects of such research areas: (i) a methodology for the analysis of the workload dynamics of a mobile phone network due to large-scale events; (ii) a framework for the distributed assessment of network centrality in complex networks; and (iii) a transformational system for the development of mobile healthcare applications. Short bio: Artur Ziviani is a researcher at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), a research unit of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI) located in Petrópolis, Brazil. In 2003, he received a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the LIP6 laboratory of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6) - Sorbonne Universités, Paris, France, where he has also been a lecturer during the 2003-2004 academic year. He received a B.Sc. degree in Electronics Engineering in 1998 and a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (emphasis in Computer Networking) in 1999, both from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil. From September 2008 to January 2009, he was a visiting researcher at INRIA in France. Currently, he serves on the Editorial Board of the following international journals: IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, Computer Networks (Elsevier), and International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC); besides being a member of the Steering Committee of JISA - Journal of Internet Services and Applications (Springer). His current research interests include self-organizing networks, network measurements, network science, and the application of networking technologies in health informatics. He is a Member of SBC (the Brazilian Computer Society), an Affiliated Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, and a Senior Member of both IEEE and ACM.
