Title of Speech: Reliability Computing for Modern Networks
 
Abstract:  Recent advances in science and technology have made modern networks more powerful and sophisticated than ever. The increasing level of sophistication and automation not only increases the complexity of these networked systems, but also increases the dependencies among components within these systems. As a result network reliability modeling and analysis become more challenging than ever. In this talk I will explain the use of reliability analysis for the purpose of robust and cost-effective network system design, followed by an introduction to several challenging research problems on reliability computing for modern networks, such as storage area networks, body area networks, and wireless sensor networks.
