08:50 – 09:00  Introduction and welcome by the PhD school chairs

09:00 – 10:30Tutorial I (1) – Measuring Routing Performance, a P4 practice with Source Routing 

Pascal Méridol is an Associate Professor at the University of Strasbourg. His research interests fall in the area of IP measurements and monitoring, Internet mapping, and routing. His tutorial will be about Measuring Routing Performance (Measuring Routing Performance, a P4 practice with Source Routing (SR)). Indeed, Measuring routing systems is complex for many reasons, in particular when probing the whole Internet and its numerous domains. However, not only their scale is a challenge, the protocols in use are difficult to predict and monitor as they evolve in time and can involve complex effects. In this lecture, students will take the example of SR and how it can implement basic segment lists in P4 (emulation with BMv2 and mininet). They will first review options enabled with SR and P4, looking at many routing problems and use-cases. The idea will be to develop basic primitives to monitor paths deployed with SR, i.e., verify connectivity, routes, latency and check the protocol performance and behavior in general.

10:50 – 12:20 Tutorial II (1) – Privacy-preserving Data Processing 

Luca Vassio is an Assistant Professor, in the Department of Control and Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Torino. His research interests include big data analysis, complex networks, machine learning and data mining. During his tutorial he will introduce to students the basic concepts of privacy-preserving data processing, introducing the main motivations, challenges, and opportunities of anonymization techniques. He will focus on k-anonymity (and its variants) as a classical approach to anonymizing tabular data, and give an overview of differential privacy as a flexible technique for performing privacy-preserving queries. During the tutorial, students will get their hands on a real case-study and learn how to anonymize a dataset before publishing or querying it using Python code and modern libraries.

09:00 – 10:30Tutorial III (1) – Future of Network Monitoring

Kevin Vermeulen is a Full Researcher at Laboratoire d’analyse et d’architecture des systèmes (LAAS), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Toulouse, France. His work focuses on building networked measurement systems to better understand and improve the Internet. His lecture will focus on novel techniques for network monitoring.

Photo Ítalo Cunha is an associate professor at the Computer Science Department at UFMG, Brazil.  He developed his Ph.D. research at Technicolor Research and Innovation, and graduated from Université Pierre et Marie Curie in 2011.  His research focuses on improving network performance, reliability and security.  His contributions provide better visibility on Internet topology and routing dynamics; help network operators troubleshoot failures and performance problems; support identification and mitigation of cybersecurity threats; and empower novel networking and security research

14:00 – 15:30 Tutorial IV (1) – BGP Data Analysis 

Cristel Pelsser holds a chair in critical embedded systems at UCLouvain. From 2015 to 2022 she was a full professor at the University of Strasbourg (France) where she led a team of researchers focusing on core Internet technologies. She spent nine years as a researcher working for ISPs in Japan. Her aim is to facilitate network operations, to avoid network disruptions and, when they occur, pinpoint the failures precisely in order to quickly fix the issues, understand them in order to design solutions to prevent recurrence. Cristel received the PhD degree from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Belgium. Her talk will be focused on BGP data analysis.
