IMDEA Networks Institute is one of the 7 IMDEA Research Institutes created in 2006 as a non-profit public Research Institute, with the objective of performing excellent research, carrying out technology transfer, and attracting talented researchers to the region of Madrid, Spain. IMDEA is a growing, English-speaking institute, whose multinational team is engaged in cutting-edge fundamental science in all areas of networking.
IMDEA Networks counts with a number of prestigious researchers experienced in participating in EU and national funded projects, such as MONROE, Flex5Gware, mmMagic, eCousin, iJOIN, CROWD, FLAVIA, GeoNet, Cloud4BigData, HyperAdapt, E2NET, TIGRE5 and Clouds. It is worth to mention the recently awarded ERC Consolidator Grant SearchLight.
Research members from the IMDEA team involved in this project have a strong publication record, including publications in top-level journals and conferences and good experience in technology transfer to industry.
IMDEA Networks will lead WP5 (Data collection, visualisation and analysis), and will be in charge of tasks T5.2 and T6.4. The expertise of IMDEA networks will be mainly employed for application characterization, workload modelling and decomposition, QoS modelling, data gathering and efficient data analytics. For the latter, in particular, IMDEA will consider big data analysis and machine learning techniques successfully employed in previous projects.
In addition, IMDEA will carry over its experience with the implementation of software and protocols on real devices in order to help with the reproduction of artificial workload data for simulation purposes. Finally, IMDEA will be involved in the validation of the use cases against selected performance metrics.
