Invited Lecture
"The System Theory of Network Calculus"


Jean-Yves Le Boudec (EPFL, Lausanne)

Network calculus is often viewed as a theory for understanding flows and concatenation of network elements. It is less often viewed as a system theory, though this viewpoint is very fertile and can have applications to many other related fields. We give a short description of the main system theory result in network calculus, and apply it to a number of classical problems. We also introduce how it can be used to solve problems of storage scheduling in the smart grid.

Jean-Yves Le Boudec is full professor at EPFL and fellow of the IEEE. He graduated from Ecole Normale Superieure de Saint-Cloud, Paris, where he obtained the Agregation in Mathematics in 1980 (rank 4) and received his doctorate in 1984 from the University of Rennes, France. From 1984 to 1987 he was with INSA/IRISA, Rennes. In 1987 he joined Bell Northern Research, Ottawa, Canada, as a member of scientific staff in the Network and Product Traffic Design Department. In 1988, he joined the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory where he was manager of the Customer Premises Network Department. In 1994 he joined EPFL as associate professor.
His interests are in the performance and architecture of communication systems. In 1984, he developed analytical models of multiprocessor, multiple bus computers. In 1990 he invented the concept called "MAC emulation" which later became the ATM forum LAN emulation project, and developed the first ATM control point based on OSPF. He also launched public domain software for the interworking of ATM and TCP/IP under Linux. He proposed in 1998 the first solution to the failure propagation that arises from common infrastructures in the Internet. He contributed to network calculus, a recent set of developments that forms a foundation to many traffic control concepts in the internet, and co-authored a book on this topic. He is also the author of the book "Performance Evaluation" (2010). He received the IEEE millenium medal, the Infocom 2005 Best Paper award, the CommSoc 2008 William R. Bennett Prize and the 2009 ACM Sigmetrics Best Paper award.
He is or has been on the program committee or editorial board of many conferences and journals, including Sigcomm, Sigmetrics, Infocom, Performance Evaluation and ACM/IEEE Transactions on Networking.
