演讲题目: An overview of networking research at Microsoft Research Asia
Microsoft Research at Beijing, China is one of the best computer science research labs in the world. In this talk, we will introduce a few networking and mobile systems research projects. Ranging from network switches to software radio to mobile phones, these projects exemplify how we conduct research in the Labs. We pick problems that are cool and interesting, but are extremely hard and sometimes moon-shooting, and yet have important practical implications. Some of them have won best paper awards in the best conferences of the field. Some of them have been used by researchers worldwide and have influenced industrial developments. Some have even had a TV talk show made for it.
