CSE Theory Seminar

Video-on-Demand Scheduling
Osama Khan
3:30pm-4:30pm, February 9, 2005, ITEB 366

The talk will focus on some protocols that assist in the transfer of movies. We will also discuss the effect of bandwidth, memory and finally the optimal schedulling protocol proposed by looking at a model. Some concepts of networking will also be touched upon. Universally composition is a new framework for defining the security of cryptographic protocols. This framework guarantees security even when the protocol is used as a component of an arbitrary distributed system. In this talk, I will present the motivation behind the framework, and provide a high-level overview of the basic components.

Based on "Optimally Scheduling Video-on-Demand to Minimize Delay when Sender and Receiver Bandwidth May Differ," by Will Evans and David Kirkpatrick
