MAMI Kickoff Meeting in Zürich

The MAMI project held its first plenary meeting at the Networked Systems Group at ETH Zürich this week.


The technical agenda included detailed discussions of measurement tool design, the beginnings of the detailed specification of our Path Transparency Observatory (as initially described in our RAIM paper), and further refinement of the use cases, requirements, and security model for our Middlebox Cooperation Protocol.

The nontechnical agenda included the obligatory-for-Switzerland-in-winter cheese fondue.


We also began technical coordination with two related Horizon 2020 projects with whom we share partners: MONROE is a FIRE testbed we’ll use for measurements as well as middlebox cooperation experiments, and NEAT aims to redesign application-transport interactions in the Internet. We look forward to a productive collaboration with both projects.

In addition, we formally appointed our External Advisory Board: Joe Hildebrand, Paul Hoffman, Dirk Kutscher, Allison Mankin, Szilveszter Nadas, and Dave Plonka. Welcome aboard, and many thanks to our advisors!
