Workshop History

The SDP workshops have a history of nurturing multidisciplinary research by bringing together academics and practitioners from top international Universities, research labs (like Microsoft Research, AT&T Labs, ACS/Telcordia, INRIA), service providers (like AT&T, Comcast, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom), hardware vendors (Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, Microsoft, Cisco), and representatives from US FCC and the National Exchange Carrier Association. SDP provides an interdisciplinary platform for researchers in engineering, economics, and business schools, to exchange novel ideas to jointly address the challenges and opportunities presented by the recent explosive growth in demand for broadband data.
