Summer School 2018 in December

6th International Summer School on International Summer on Network Performance Evaluation and Modelling

The summer school is organized for researchers and PhD students in the area Communication Networks. Master students in their final year can also apply for participation, but need a letter of recommendation from their supervisor.

The objective of the summer school is to give a sound basis or refresh skills and expertise in tools and mathematical approaches used for modelling, optimization and evaluation of communication networks. This is in particularly useful for PhD students and researchers looking for approaches and tools to evaluate and validate their innovations and new algorithms in communication networks.

This year's summer school will take place at Hamburg University of Technolog (TUHH) from December 10th to December 14th.

We could secure tutorials from well-known experts:
  1. Data Center Networking, Torsten Runge (TUHH)
  2. Machine Learning in Communication Networks, Anna Förster (Univ. Bremen)
  3. Structured Markov Chains, Ivo Adan (TU Eindhoven)
  4. Reliability modelling in 5G Networks, Frank Fitzek (TU-Dresden)
  5. Optimization  - Peter Buchholz (TU Dortmund)
  6. Simulation Result Analysis, Andreas Timm-Giel (Hamburg University of Technology)
