Professor Han Dongsoo’s research paper will be published on August 24 at ACM SIGCOMM, the top tier academic

society in computer networking. This paper is the only paper accepted by ACM SIGCOMM 2017 written by Korean

In this paper, authors introduced a new congestion control algorithm with bounded delay in a large data center

network, and showed its effectiveness theoretically and through large-scale simulation in a testbed using general

-purpose servers and switches 

As Datacenter’s low-latency issue becomes a hot topic, this paper attracts a great deal of interest from academics

as well as companies operating large datacenter such as Google and Huawei.This study was conducted in

collaboration with Dr. Jang Gun, who is from KAIST and currently working at Google. Jo Inho, the first author of the

paper, is doing internship at Google for 6 months as a master ‘s degree in electrical and electronic engineering.
