"Software-Defined Networking: Introduction and Retrospective"

Abstract: Software-Defined Networking (SDN) was developed over five years ago, amidst much hope and naivete. In this talk I will discuss both SDN's past and future, highlighting the follies of our youth and outlining the challenges ahead.

Bio: Scott Shenker spent his academic youth studying theoretical physics but soon gave up chaos theory for computer science . Continuing to display a remarkably short attention span, his research over the years has wandered from performance modeling and networking to game theory and economics. Unable to focus on any single topic, his current research projects include software-defined networking, cluster programming models, genomic sequence aligners, and Internet architecture. Unable to hold a steady job, he currently splits his time between the U. C. Berkeley Computer Science Department and the International Computer Science Institute.
