Dr Vasilis Sourlas, Prof. Leandros Tassiulas of Yale University, USA, Dr Ioannis Psaras and Prof. George Pavlou received the best paper award at the IFIP Networking 2015 international conference that took place on the 20-22 May 2015 in Toulouse, France. IFIP Networking is a key yearly event in networking and one of the top networking conferences. It has maintained an acceptance rate mostly between 20-25%, with this year’s rate being 23.8%.

Dr Sourlas, together with his PhD supervisor Prof. Tassiulas, have collaborated with us for some time and Dr Sourlas finally joined the department and our group as EU Marie Curie Fellow in January 2015. This work was done in collaboration with EPSRC Fellow Dr Ioannis Psaras and Prof. George Pavlou. The research behind the paper is in the area of Information Centric Networking (ICN), which is an area in which we have been doing pioneering research, defining partly this relatively new research field. The paper details are as follows:
