Next week, computer and information scientists will have the chance to dive into some of the Army’s newest network technologies, right from the comfort of the University of Delaware campus.
On Monday, Feb. 6, the university will host Venkateswara R. Dasari of the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) as part of the SIG-SYS seminar series run by the computer engineering department.
The ARL, located just over the border in Aberdeen, Md., is the Army’s corporate laboratory. It provides the largest source of research for the Army by combining private and government sector sources, according to the U.S. Army.
Dasari is a lead researcher and academic partner at the ARL who has previously worked with the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice. He also has corporate experience and has worked for companies including AstraZeneca, Exelon and Conde Nast as senior network architect and engineer.
According to the event description, his talk on Monday will cover “the fundamentals of programmable networks and  highlight the differences between programmable and classical networks,” as well as some of ARL’s programmable network research projects.
The seminar will be held at 12:00 p.m. in UD’s Smith Hall, room 102A. Those interested in attending can contact Sunita Chandrasekaran at for more information.
