    • Personal Data: Thinking Inside the Box 

      Chaudhry, Amir; Crowcroft, Jon; Howard, Heidi; Madhavapeddy, Anil; Mortier, Richard; Haddadi, Hamed; McAuley, Derek (ACM, 2015)
      We are in a ‘personal data gold rush’ driven by advertising being the primary revenue source for most online companies. These companies accumulate extensive personal data about individuals with minimal concern for us, ...
    • Queues Don’t Matter When You Can JUMP Them! 

      Grosvenor, Matthew P.; Schwarzkopf, Malte; Gog, Ionel; Watson, Robert N. M.; Moore, Andrew W.; Hand, Steven; Crowcroft, Jon (USENIX Association, 2015-03-27)
      QJUMP is a simple and immediately deployable approach to controlling network interference in datacenter networks. Network interference occurs when congestion from throughput-intensive applications causes queueing that ...
    • Reliable ligh-speed Grid data delivery using IP multicast 

      Jeacle, Karl; Crowcroft, Jon (2008-06-26)
      In recent years, much work has been done on attempting to scale multicast data transmissions to hundreds or thousands of receivers. In today's Grid environments, however, a typical application might involve bulk data ...
    • Research data supporting "From photons to big-data applications: terminating terabits" 

      Zilberman, Noa; Moore, Andrew W.; Crowcroft, Jon (University of Cambridge, 2015-08-28)
    • Resolving data center power bill disputes: the energy-performance trade-offs of consolidation 

      Chatzipapas, Angelos; Pediaditakis, Dimosthenis; Rotsos, Charalampos; Mancuso, Vincenzo; Crowcroft, Jon; Moore, Andrew W. (2015-06-09)
      In this paper we challenge the common evaluation practices used for Virtual Machine (VM) consolidation, such as simulation and small testbeds, which fail to capture the fundamental trade-off between energy consumption and ...
    • SCANDEX: Service Centric Networking for Challenged Decentralised Networks 

      Sathiaseelan, Arjuna; Wang, Liang; Aucinas, Andrius; Tyson, Gareth; Crowcroft, Jon (Association for Computing Machinery, 2015-05-18)
      Do-It-Yourself (DIY) networks are decentralised networks built by an (often) amateur community. As DIY networks do not rely on the need for backhaul Internet connectivity, these networks are mostly a mix of both offine and ...
    • Social network support for data delivery infrastructures 

      Sastry, Nishanth Ramakrishna (2011-10-11)
      Network infrastructures often need to stage content so that it is accessible to consumers. The standard solution, deploying the content on a centralised server, can be inadequate in several situations. Our thesis is ...
    • Valorising the IoT $\textit{Databox}$: Creating Value for Everyone 

      Perera, Charith; Wakenshaw, Susan; Baarslag, Tim; Haddadi, Hamed; Bandara, Arosha; Mortier, Richard; Crabtree, Andy et al. (Wiley, 2016-11-11)
      The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to generate large amounts of heterogeneous data from diverse sources including physical sensors, user devices, and social media platforms. Over the last few years, significant ...
    • Wild Interdisciplinarity: Ethnography and Computer Science 

      Goulden, Murray; Greiffenhagen, Christian; Crowcroft, Jon; McAuley, Derek; Mortier, Richard; Radenkovic, Milena; Sathiaseelan, Arjuna (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
      Drawing on the experiences of a novel collaborative project between sociologists and computer scientists, this paper identifies a set of challenges for fieldwork that are generated by this wild interdisciplinarity. Public ...
