Today we're unveiling our startup, Veriflow, which is for the first time bringing the mathematical power of formal verification to protect network infrastructure. I feel very lucky to work with such an awesome team. Check out our new web site!
Veriflow’s mission is to apply mathematical verification to networks, preventing outages and breaches that lead to astronomical losses.

This result will make a splash.
Scientists looked to dark streaks that form each summer on the slopes of Martian mountains, craters and canyons.

SOSR 2016 Call for Papers

http://opennetsummit.org/conference/

Software Defined Networking (SDN) refactors the relationship between network devices and the software that controls them. Opening up the interfaces to programming the network enables more flexible and predictable network control, and makes it easier to extend the network with new functionality. SDN is employed in a large and growing number of experimental and production settings spanning enterprise data centers, campus networks, telcos, clouds, and online service provider networks. A variety of new applications have been developed, including network virtualization, responsive traffic engineering, dynamic access control, and seamless mobility support.

The Symposium on SDN Research (SOSR) is the premiere venue for research publications on SDN, building on past years' successful SOSR and HotSDN (Hot Topics in Software Defined Networking) workshops. This year, SOSR will be co-located with the Open Networking Summit (ONS) and the USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation (NSDI'16), providing greater opportunity for industry and academia to jointly explore and debate recent developments related to all aspects of SDN.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit both long (12-page) and short (6-page) papers. SDN has matured to the point that large complex systems have been built and have experienced broad deployment. We hope to encourage submission of more detailed systems and experience papers by accepting long papers to the conference.

Important Dates

• 5pm PST Monday October 26 (midnight GMT):  Abstract registration
• 5pm PST Friday October 30 (midnight GMT):  Paper submission
• December 18:  Notification
• February 12:  Camera ready
• March 14-15: Symposium

PC Chairs: Martin Casado and Brighten Godfrey

We're hiring!
 
CS@Illinois is hiring!  We invite applications for several tenure-track faculty positions, at all ranks and all areas.  The advertisement includes a long list of areas of "particular emphasis"; that list accurately reflects both the intellectual scope of the search and the number of faculty slots we hope to fill.

Separately from this tenure-track search, we are also planning a search for multiple teaching faculty.

I am once again the chair of the faculty hiring committee. (Wheeee!) Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  But if you're wondering whether you and/or your PhD students should apply, the answer is yes!
Faculty Positions. College of Engineering: Professor (Open Rank) – Computer Science. The Department of Computer Science (CS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for faculty positions at all levels and in all areas of CS, but with particular emphasis in the ...

Social progress happens when people realize the thing they thought would destroy civilization merely became another box on a census form.
