colocated buttonThe paper "Socially-Aware Traffic Management” by Michael Seufert, George Darzanos, Valentin Burger, Ioanna Papafili, and Tobias Hoßfeld has been accepted for publication at the Workshop Sozioinformatik 2013 in Koblenz, Germany on September 16, 2013.


Socially-aware traffic management exploits social signals to optimize traffic management in the Internet in terms of traffic load, energy consumption, or end-user satisfaction. Several use cases can benefit from socially-aware traffic management and the performance of overlay applications can be enhanced. In the talk we show interdisciplinary efforts between communication networks and social network analysis. Specifically, we give an overview on existing use cases and solutions, but also raise discussions at the workshop on additional benefits from the integration of social information into traffic management.
