Graph Query Layer: Fast and Flexible Access to Graph Structured Data

[ May 29, 2012; 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm. ] I will demonstrate the power of complex network properties as an important aspect of building a forwarding protocol in opportunistic networks. We have explored new communication paradigms using dynamic interconnectedness between mobile devices (i.e. opportunistic networks), where we have exploited human contact networks built from real-world device connectivity traces for modelling social network structures. This empirical study of contact networks shares many issues with network-based epidemiology, and we have extended our work towards understanding the epidemic spread of infectious diseases.
