Detecting the Community Structure and Activity Patterns of Temporal Networks: A Non-Negative Tensor Factorization Approach
TLDR
We investigate the use of a latent factor decomposition technique, non-negative tensor factorization, to extract the community-activity structure of temporal networks. Expand

Data on face-to-face contacts in an office building suggest a low-cost vaccination strategy based on community linkers
TLDR
We consider the contact network as a potential substrate for infectious disease spread and show that its sparsity tends to prevent outbreaks of rapidly spreading epidemics. Expand

Managing computer networks using peer-to-peer technologies
TLDR
We introduce an approach where P2P networks are used as flexible interdomain distributed management systems able to provide facilities often absent in traditional management systems. Expand

Time-varying social networks in a graph database: a Neo4j use case
TLDR
We introduce a data model for time-varying social network data that can be represented as a property graph in the Neo4j graph database and study the performance of real-world queries. Expand

Predicting human mobility through the assimilation of social media traces into mobility models
TLDR
We propose a hybrid model of human mobility that integrates a large-scale publicly available dataset from a popular photo-sharing system with the classical gravity model, under a stacked regression procedure. Expand

Quantifying social contacts in a household setting of rural Kenya using wearable proximity sensors
TLDR
We present and analyse data arising from a prospective study of 5 households in rural Kenya, followed through 3 consecutive days. Expand

MobHinter: epidemic collaborative filtering and self-organization in mobile ad-hoc networks
TLDR
We focus on collaborative filtering dealing with self-organizing communities, host mobility, wireless access, and ad-hoc communications and propose epidemic collaborative strategies that can reduce rapidly and realistically the cold start problem. Expand

On the Dynamics of Human Proximity for Data Diffusion in Ad-Hoc Networks
TLDR
We report on a data-driven investigation aimed at understanding the dynamics of message spreading in a real-world dynamical network of human proximity. Expand

Designing the Architecture of P2P-Based Network Management Systems
P2P-based network management has been recently proposed. However, the entities involved in this new management model have not been detailed up to today. In this paper we introduce the internalExpand
