The Networks Research Group was established in 1987 and is active in key areas of networking, particularly Internet measurements, Software Defined Networking, web systems and mobile computing. The group has an international reputation for excellence: our  work is regularly published in prestigious venues such as SIGCOMM, INFOCOM, IMC, CoNEXT, WWW, HotNets 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 hosting 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!
