The Networks Research Group was established in 1987 and is active in key areas of networking including Internet measurements, quality of service, mobile communications, content delivery and network analysis. The group has an international reputation for excellence; our  work is regularly published in prestigious venues such as SIGCOMM, INFOCOM, IMC, CoNEXT, WWW, ICNP and various premier IEEE/ACM Transactions (e.g. ToN, TPDS, TC, ToMM). Our research is funded by a mix of grants from EPSRC, EU H2020, and industrial partners. The group is also highly active in community activities, recently organising conferences such as IMC’17, SIGCOMM’15, DEV’15 and TMA’14. We run seminars every Wednesday – please get in touch if you’d like to attend or present!
