  • First learn then earn: optimizing mobile crowdsensing campaigns through data-driven user profiling

    Karaliopoulos, Merkourios; Koutsopoulos, Iordanis; Titsias, Michalis (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    We study the optimal design of mobile crowdsensing campaigns in terms of the aggregate quality of contributions attracted for a set of tasks. The interaction of the campaign with users is realized through a mobile app interface that recommends tasks to users and offers them incentives. The main contribution is a novel perspective on the payment distribution problem faced by the crowdsensing campaign organizer in light of originally unknown individual user preferences. Contrary to common pract...

    Optimized Cooperative Streaming in Wireless Mesh Networks

    Information Technology and Sustainability in the Information Society

    Fuchs, Christian (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    The sustainability concept has developed in a policy context. Its main relevance has been in policy forums such as the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. In the realm of information and communication technologies (ICTs), sustainability has played a policy role in the context of the World Summit on the Information Society. This article asks: How can we think of sustainability and ICTs in the context of a critic...

    Community wireless networks, intermediary liability and the McFadden CJEU case

    Giovanella , Federica; Dulong de Rosnay , Melanie (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    International audience; This article focuses on the possible implications of the McFadden decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on the development and sustainability of community networks (CNs). CNs provide internet connectivity through open wi-fi, normally based on distributed infrastructure and wireless technologies, that enable users to create an open, community owned and run, network.CNs constitute a grassroots alternative to commercial internet service providers (...

    Making Community Networks economically sustainable, the guifi.net experience

    Baig, Roger; Dalmau, Lluís; Roca, Ramon; Navarro, Leandro; Freitag, Felix; Sathiaseelan, Arjuna (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Community networks have flourished around the world as a complementary model for enabling access to the Internet and its services. Nevertheless there is still an on-going debate on how to make them sustainable and scaleable beyond the voluntary effort and non-refundable contributions. The approach taken by Guifi.net has been to enable professional activity and to develop a set of tools to ensure the reinvestment of a fraction of the benefits of this professional activity. This has contributed...

    Peer to party: Occupy the law

    Dulong De Rosnay , Mélanie (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    International audience; In this paper I infuse political and legal theory with peer to peer decentralized design features. This experiment studies how property and liability, two core legal institutions attached to individual persons, react and can be transformed (like chemical elements) when applied a peer to peer, distributed design. This empirical and evolutionary approach of hacking the law, seen as a regulatory system, is then applied to the peer production of law itself, as a political ...

    Practical Service Placement Approach for Microservices Architecture

    Selimi, Mennan; Cerda-Alabern, Llorenc; Sanchez-Artigas, Marc; Freitag, Felix; Veiga, Luis (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Community networks (CNs) have gained momentum in the last few years with the increasing number of spontaneously deployed WiFi hotspots and home networks. These networks, owned and managed by volunteers, offer various services to their members and to the public. To reduce the complexity of service deployment, community micro-clouds have recently emerged as a promising enabler for the delivery of cloud services to community users. By putting services closer to consumers, micro-clouds pursue not...

    Community sharing of spare network capacity

    Dimogerontakis, Emmanouil; Meseguer, Roc; Navarro, Leandro; Ochoa, Sergio F.; Veiga, Luis (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    In several community scenarios, people share benevolently their spare broadband Internet access connectivity with other people who cannot afford it. Although laudable, this sharing process can negatively affect the service received by the primary users, thus jeopardizing the continuity of this community service. In this paper we propose the use of a gateway that separates the traffic of the primary users from that of the secondary users, the beneficiaries of this sharing. We analyze the impac...

    Alternative Communications Networks Throughout History : netCommons Deliverable number: D5.1

    Trudel , Dominique; Tréguer , Félix (2016)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    This report explores the history of alternative communication technologies and networks (“alternets”). It focuses on three historic formations of alternets: 1) the community telephone networks of the late 19th and early 20th century, 2) the Free Radio movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s, and 3) the first generation of community networks providing Internet access in the 1990’s. For each of these movements, the deliverable offers case studies of specific alternets in various countries, mostly in ...
  • Topologies Collected From 3 Community Networks

    Leonardo Maccari (2018)
    Publisher: Zenodo
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    This data-set contains graph topologies of several networks that were analysed in two scientific works and used in several more.  The data in the 'topologies' folder contains two sets of data: The '2014' folder contains about 5000 snapshots of three community networks, namely Freifunk Wien, Freifunk Graz and ninux Rome.  This data-set was collected between 2014 and 2015 and is at the base of the work "A week in the life of three large Wireless Community N...

    Survey on Internet attitudes

    Publisher: Zenodo
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    The dataset on Alternative Internet survey is part of the research on Alternative Internets carried out in the project netCommons: Network Infrastructure as Commons H2020 EU project (Grant Number 688768, project URL: http://netcommons.eu). The netCommons project aspires to study, support and further promote an emerging trend, community-based networking and communication services that can offer a complement, or even a sustainable alternative, to the global Internet’s current dominant mo...
