We are happy to announce that our recent research work “COSCO: Container Orchestration using Co-Simulation and Gradient Based Optimization for Fog Computing Environments”, accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems ( This work introduces a new framework that uses coupled simulation in tandem with gradients to inputs in a deep surrogate… Read more »

Paper accepted in IEEE/ACM TON

Our recent work Performance analysis of list-based caches with non-uniform access about stochastic modelling of caches has been accepted for publication in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. This is a collaboration with Nicolas Gast (INRIA). The journal paper extends an earlier work published at INFOCOM 2018. Abstract: List-based caches can offer lower miss rates than single-list… Read more »

Vacancy: post-doc in real-time cloud monitoring data analysis

Our group is seeking to fill a post-doctoral vacancy related to real-time anomaly detection and analysis of cloud monitor data. Applications are solicited from applicants with a relevant background in machine learning, real-time algorithms, or distributed systems. Applicants with a theoretical track-record in anomaly detection will also be considered.

New paper in MASCOTS (FaaS sizing)

Our recent work COCOA: Cold Start Aware Capacity Planning for Function-as-a-Service Platforms about modelling and sizing FaaS platforms taking into account cold-starts has been accepted in IEEE MASCOTS 2020, congratulations to Alim Ul Gias! Abstract: Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) is increasingly popular in the software industry due to the implied cost-savings in event-driven workloads and its synergy… Read more »

Paper accepted in IEEE Access (Spark anomaly detection)

Congratulations to Ahmad Alnafessah for our recently accepted paper TRACK-Plus: Optimizing Artificial Neural Networks for Hybrid Anomaly Detection in Data Streaming ! The paper is published in IEEE Access. Abstract: Software applications can feature intrinsic variability in their execution time due to interference from other applications or software contention from other users, which may lead… Read more »
