Complexity Research Group,

Sylvia's name has been mentioned several times in the past for her work on network complexity, most notably for this paper:

Chun, B-G., Ratnasamy, S. and E. Eddie, "NetComplex: A Complexity Metric for Networked System Design", 5th Usenix Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation NSDI 2008, April 2008,

Sylvia and I just had a call: Sylvia would be happy to present about her complexity research to us. Since it's not yet clear whether she can come to Berlin, I asked her to present over Webex to us.

Please accept or decline this invite, so that I have a rough idea how many people to expect on the call. (Apologies for people in APAC for the timing - we may record this for offline usage)

Thanks to Sylvia for making herself available!
