Communication and Computer Networks Seminar - Open Courses (INF110)

George Xylomenos



The goal of this course is to expose students to the problems of the current Internet architecture and introduce the concepts of Information-Centric Networks. This will take place by studying a set of research papers on the origins of the Internet, the issues it is facing today in various areas and the various approaches taken to rectify them in an Information-Centric manner. The course is designed to prepare students for research in the area of Information-Centric Networking.
