Title: Game theory applied to SIS Epidemics in Networks

Abstract:Viral models can be used both to describe the propagation of content by subscribers who share it in a network as well as to describe propagation of e-viruses in a network. We shall begin by describing viral models that describe the evolution of the number of views of videos in YouTube. We shall then show how this can be extended to the number of videos in Internet Memes. We then present viral models for propagation of e-viruses in the Internet. We present competitive models for which result in acceleration or in slowing the propagation of contents or viruses..

Short Biography

Eitan Altman received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering (1984), the B.A. degree in physics (1984) and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (1990), all from the Technion-Israel Institute, Haifa. In 1990 he received his B.Mus. degree in music composition in Tel-Aviv university. Since 1990, Dr. Altman has been a researcher at INRIA (National research institute in computer science and control). He has been in the editorial boards of the journals Wireless Networks (WINET), Computer Networks (COMNET), Computer Communications (Comcom), J. Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (JDEDS), SIAM J. of Control and Optimisation (SICON), Stochastic Models, and Journal of Economy Dynamic and Control (JEDC). He received the best paper award in the Networking 2006, in Globecom 2007, in IFIP Wireless Days 2009 and in CNSM 2011 (Paris) conferences. His areas of interest include Network Engineering Games, social networks and their control and the analysis through game theoretical models of network neutrality issues. He received in 2012 the Grand Prix de France Telecom from the French Academy of Sciences. On July 2014 he received the ISAACS Award from the Society of Dynamic Games for his contribution in game Theory. More information can be found at www-sop.inria.fr/members/Eitan.Altman/
