On Sept. 26, 2-4 pm, we will host the first seminar of the Séminaires Parisiens en Réseaux (SPRES), with one talk from André Zanella, Ph.D. candidate with Marco Fiore at IMDEA Networks, Spain, followed by short presentations from seven among our master interns: Ali Awarkeh, Augustin Clero, David Kule, Farnaz Ebrahimishad, Hussein Khalil, Zifeng Zhang, Zisen Xu.
Title: Impact of Later-Stages COVID-19 Response Measures on
Spatiotemporal Mobile Service Usage.
Speaker: André Zanella, IMDEA Networks, Spain
Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our lives and how we use
network infrastructures in an unprecedented way. While early studies
have started shedding light on the link between COVID-19 containment
measures and mobile network traffic, we presently lack a clear
understanding of the implications of the virus outbreak, and of our
reaction to it, on the usage of mobile apps. We contribute to closing
this gap, by investigating how the spatiotemporal usage of mobile
services has evolved through different response measures enacted in
France during a continued seven-month period in 2020 and 2021.
Our work complements previous studies in several ways: it delves into
individual service dynamics, whereas previous studies have not gone
beyond broad service categories; it encompasses different types of
containment strategies, allowing to observe their diverse effects on
mobile traffic; it covers both spatial and temporal behaviors, providing
a comprehensive view on the phenomenon. These elements of novelty let us
lay new insights on how the demands for hundreds of different mobile
services are reacting to the new environment set forth by the pandemics.
