Organizers: Annotation:
As Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology approaches maturity, the scientific community is now turning its attention to more advanced applications of quantum networks at metropolitan and international scales, such as distributed/delegated quantum computing and quantum sensor networks, requiring end-to-end entanglement of qubits, quantum memories, and varying degrees of fault tolerance. To make a leapfrogging advance, the co-existence of upcoming quantum networks with classical networks is also becoming more focal, with a significant impact at the physical level (i.e., the sharing of a telco fiber or rack space in an exchange point) and from a logical perspective (i.e., the integration with control/management planes of an Internet Service Provider or the interplay with classical jobs to be executed in a High-Performance Computing infrastructure). In this panel, we will discuss the research and development trends currently occupying the top positions of the priority list to make the Quantum Internet a real thing, with a tangible impact on industry, science, and society.

A memorial plaque to Onykiy Boris Nikolaevich was unveiled

February 20, 2024
NRNU MEPhI
Moscow, Russia
Overview:

On February 20, 2024, in the 5th building of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI at the Department of Analysis of Competitive Systems of the Institute of International Relations, the grand opening of a memorial plaque to the former rector of the university Boris Nikolaevich Onykiy took place, dedicated to the 85th anniversary of his birth.

Boris Nikolaevich Onykiy is an outstanding Russian scientist, professor, Doctor of Science, rector of MEPhI (1997-2007), president of National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (2008-2015), founder and first head of the department of analysis of competitive systems (2005-2020). Boris Nikolaevich’s career is inextricably linked with MEPhI and the USSR Ministry of Medium Engineering. His contribution to the development of MEPhI is associated both with the preservation of the university in the difficult 90s and with the opening of the first Faculty of Information Security in the Russian Federation, the Economic Analytical Institute, and the Institute of International Relations.

Sculptor Alexander Mironov managed to masterfully convey not only the image of Boris Onykiy, but also symbolically capture the key milestones in Boris Nikolayevich’s life path - the Riga Nakhimov Naval School, MEPhI, the Central Institute for Advanced Studies of the Ministry of Medium Machine Building, the Academy of Cryptography of the Russian Federation and many others.

The opening ceremony of the memorial plaque was attended by relatives, friends and associates of Boris Nikolaevich, each of whom had warm words of gratitude and appreciation for him.

Oleg Nagornov, First Vice-rector of MEPhI, noted that "Boris Nikolaevich made an invaluable contribution not only to the development, but also to the existence of MEPhI. He had a difficult time in the history of MEPhI. He was able to hold this ship, for which we express our great gratitude to him."

Vladimir Korenkov, Scientific Leader of the Meshcheryakov Laboratory of Information Technology of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, noted that Boris Onykiy was able to contribute to many different scientific fields: "He was a symbol of cooperation between the JINR Laboratory of Information Technology, MEPhI and CERN ", co-founder of the Dubna School, many of whose students have already become prominent scientists themselves, who they preserve and multiply the knowledge and principles laid down by Boris Nikolaevich. More recently, I became aware that the JINR University Centre was established in 1993 on the initiative of Boris Nikolaevich. I would like to thank everyone present and wish his followers, students, and students great success, but first of all all the best to his wonderful family."

A warm, family atmosphere prevailed at the event, which continued in the evening with memories of Boris Nikolaevich's role and contribution to the life of each of his friends, associates, followers and students.

Overview:
Dear Colleagues,
On Wednesday, January 17 at 19:00 MSK within the consortium "Network and Cloud Technologies" online-seminar from https://networkingchannel.eu will take place.

Topic: "Cloudflare in the Context of CDN Services: Architecture, operations, and their impact on research"
  • Marwan Fayed – Technical lead and Manager – Cloudflare Research – Visiting Professor – University of St Andrews – UK
Organizers: Annotation:
A large portion of content on the Internet today is delivered to clients from hosting services and distribution networks. In sharing the ‘CDN’ label, it is natural to regard the underlying systems and operations as equivalent, and yet they are vastly different. An understanding of their similarities, their differences, and their motivations, can help not only to explain observations, but also inform opportunities. Cloudflare, for example, serves content on behalf of millions, and yet hosts virtually none of it. The Cloudflare network is among the most, if not the most, connected on the Internet, and uses anycast at scales that can defy understanding. In this talk I will cover some of the aspects of Cloudflare and its architecture that shape operations, some that are unique among content services. We’ll get hints of the interactions between business decisions and technological innovation in ways that, just maybe, help open avenues of investigation in the research community.
