09:00 – 09:15 Introduction and welcome by the PhD school chairs
09:15 – 10:45 Tutorial I (1) – Network Monitoring
Stuart Clayman is a Principal Research Fellow, in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London, UK. His tutorial will get students exposed to the challenges of building and deploying a distributed monitoring system. He will start by presenting the pros and cons of centralized versus decentralized monitoring. He will then provide hands-on training on configuring the different components of a distributed monitoring architecture, based on the testbed implementation he has been running for the last 10 years as part of different European projects.
10:45 – 11:15 Coffee Break
11:15 – 12:45 Tutorial I (2) – Network Monitoring
12:45 – 14:00 Lunch Break & Poster Session: Group 1
14:00 – 15:30 Tutorial II (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.

09:00 – 10:30 Tutorial III (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.

14:00 – 15:30 Tutorial IV (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.
