    Gossip-based service monitoring platform for wireless edge cloud computing

    Apolonia, Nuno; Freitag, Felix; Navarro, Leandro; Girdzijauskas, Sarunas; Vlassov, Vladimir (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Edge cloud computing proposes to support shared services, by using the infrastructure at the network's edge. An important problem is the monitoring and management of services across the edge environment. Therefore, dissemination and gathering of data is not straightforward, differing from the classic cloud infrastructure. In this paper, we consider the environment of community networks for edge cloud computing, in which the monitoring of cloud services is required. We propose a monitoring pla...

    Gaps and bumps in the political history of the internet

    Tréguer , Félix (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    International audience; In the past years, there has been a growing scholarly attention given to “digital rights contention”, that is political conflicts related to the expansion or restriction of civil and political rights exerted through, or affected by, digital communications technologies. Yet, when we turn to history to inform contemporary debates and mobilisations, what we often find are single-sided narratives that have achieved iconic status, studies focusing on a handful of over-quote...

    Pouvoir et résistance dans l'espace public : une contre-histoire d'Internet (XVe -XXIe siècle)

    Tréguer , Félix (2017)
    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)
    Taking contemporary debates on freedom of expression and privacy in the digital age as a starting point, this thesis revisits the history of the Internet at the intersection of legal history, political theory and history of science and technology. Through a long-time study of the clash between power and resistance strategies associated with communication technologies, it aims to contribute to the history of the public sphere and of digital activism. From the inception of the printing press on...

    Projects: EC | netCommons (688768)

    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...

    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, Mélanie (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...
  • 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...
