Fractal chief scientist Jonathan Katz was invited and gave a keynote with the title “The Impact of Network Modeling on Feasibility Results for Consensus”, at the IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS), this June, at Washington DC.
CNS is a leading conference in the area of network security. In front of a full house of audience, Prof Katz through several examples, illustrated that network modeling choices (e.g., adaptive corruption; synchronous vs asynchronous communication) will have significant impact on the design. Prof Katz’s talk was well received, and at the end of the talk, many questions were asked by the audience, and many interesting discussions were created. Prof Katz raised awareness on the importance of collaboration between the network community and the consensus community. This talk serves perfectly to bridge the two communities.
The technical points of the talk will be described in an upcoming blog post. Stay tuned!
