22nd Asian School on Computer Science


The 22nd Asian School on Computer Science was organized as a pre-AINTEC tutorial in November, 2011.   AINTEC is an ACM SIGCOMM in-cooperation conference and is partially supported by SIGCOMM. 


22nd Asian School on Computer Science
Performance Evaluation for Computer Networks

Hosted by the Internet Education and Reasearch Laboratory (intERLab),  AIT and
the Department of Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kasetsart University

20-21 February 2012
Room 204, Computer Engineering Building
Kasetsart University
Bangkhen, Bangkok



The Asian School of Computer Science is conducted annually by Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. The purpose of the school is to provide short courses conducted by leading experts in the computer science fields enabling local participations from the Asia Pacific region.


The 22nd School will cover mathematical and statistical   networks by internationally renowned researchers in the field,  Professor Don Towsley of the University of Massachusetts and Professor John C.S.Lui of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.


Professor Don Towsley is currently a Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. Dr. Towsley's research interests include network measurement, modeling, and analysis.   He is one of the founders of the Computer Performance Foundation. Dr. Towsley has received the 2007 IEEE Koji Kobayashi Computer and Communications Award , the 2007 ACM SIGMETRICS Achievement Award, the 2008 ACM SIGCOMM Award, the 1999 IEEE Communications Society William Bennett Award, and several conference and workshop best paper awards. He has twice received IBM Faculty Fellowship Awards, and is a Fellow of the IEEE and the ACM.


Professor John C.S. Lui is currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received his PhD in Computer Science from UCLA. He later joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has been a visiting professor in computer science departments at UCLA, Columbia University, University of Maryland at College Park, Purdue University, University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Universit degli Studi di Torino in Italy. Currently, he is leading a group of research students and post docs in the Advanced Network and System Research Group working on network research problems which span both in system and in theory/mathematics. His current research interests include communication networks, network/system security, network economics, network sciences, cloud computing, large scale distributed systems and performace evaluation theory. More information on Prof John C.S. Lui is available at www.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/~cslui.


The 22nd ASCS will cover topics including probability, queuing theory, queuing networks, Introduction (probability, random variables, stochastic processes and Markov Chains), Queuing theory (M/M/1, M/G/1, Matrix geometric,..etc), Queuing networks, Markov Decision ProcessesOrdinary Differential Equation Models and Bounds,  Kelly Framework and application to TCP modeling,  Stochastic Differential Equations and applications to TCP modeling,  Mean field models – viruses, linear preferential attachment,  Chernov bounds (large deviation) -  capacity of wireless networks, Measurements and statistical inferencing.


The Asian School on Computer Science welcomes participation from networking researchers and graduate students.
