||As the complexity of computer networks,
the nature of their applications, and their socio-economic impact
evolve, new algorithmic challenges arise, stimulating the algorithmic
community towards studying new problem domains and computational frameworks.
This research project is devoted to the design of algorithms and data
structures whose primary motivation comes from the Internet and Web
applications. The project brings together five leading research groups
in algorithmic research in Italy in a joint effort that aims at:
- Discovering new algorithmic techniques and methodologies;
- Identifying and solving key algorithmic problems in important
- Contributing to the accelerated transfer of advanced algorithmic
technologies into tools, libraries and systems.
The main emphasis of the project is on a novel combination of application-oriented
research in two important domains (the next generation Internet
and the Web) with innovative methodological work on algorithm engineering,
information visualization and general algorithmic techniques.
