socialnets

In December 2009 I started work on the Socialnets project, working with Walter Colombo, Stuart Allen, Roger Whitaker and occasionally Matthew Williams.

Our work initially focused on cooperation and trust between nodes in opportunistic networks and adaptive strategies for sharing content of different value between them. This work was presented at IAT2010 and SASO2010.

We also carried out an examination of a micro-blogging protocol to be used to disseminate small pieces of information through a population of mobile nodes. This work has recently been published in Ad Hoc Networks. A further paper on this topic completed as a collaboration with other Socialnets researchers at the University of Athens was published in Pervasive and Mobile Computing.
