Presentation abstract

Dr. Neri will give a presentation on “Research topics and issues faces in TREND, the FP7 Network of Excellence on Energy-Efficient Networking“: TREND (Towards Real Energy-efficient Network Design) is a European project aiming at integrating the activities of major European players in networking, including manufacturers, operators, research centers, to quantitatively assess the energy demand of current and future telecom infrastructures, and to design energy-efficient, scalable and sustainable future networks.
The talk will briefly overview the TREND project, including both technical activities, and plans for interactions with other projects focused on energy-efficient networking, and for dissemination and outreach. Selected research topics aiming at reducing the power consumption of networking infrastructures will be highlighted.


Fabio Neri is Full Professor at the Electronics Department of Politecnico di Torino. His research interests are in the fields of performance evaluation of communication networks, high-speed and all-optical networks, packet switching architectures, energy efficient networking, and queuing theory.

He leads research activities on optical networks and on switching architectures at Politecnico di Torino. He coordinated the participation of his research group to several national Italian and European research projects. He was the coordinator of the FP6 Network of Excellence e-Photon/ONe on optical networks, and is currently the coordinator of the FP7 TREND Network of Excellence on energy-efficient networking. He has co-authored over 200 papers published in international journals and presented in leading international conferences.

Dr. Neri participated to the technical program committees of several conferences, including IEEE Infocom and IEEE Globecom. He was technical co-chairman of the Optical Networks and Systems Symposium at IEEE Globecom 2008, and general co-chairman of ECOC 2010. He served in the editorial board of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, and is co-editor-in-chief of the Elsevier Optical Switching and Networking Journal.
