MPLS and the New Internet Architecture|
June 21 and 22, 2000 - Brussels (Belgium)
Université de Liège
In 1983, Professor Danthine launched the ESPRIT I Project 73 aimed at the development of a high speed network for the interconnection of heterogeneous LANs on a broad site. This Project concluded, in 1989, with the installation, on the Sart Tilman Campus of the University of Liège, of the BWN (Backbone Wideband Network) prototype (more than 18 km of optical fibre with a data rate of 140 Mbps). In 1990, Professor Danthine launched a new Esprit project, OSI95, to tackle the design of a new transport service and protocol (TPX) for multimedia applications in a high speed environment including B-ISDN. In 1991, he joined the RACE Project CIO. It is within the framework of this project that the ATM LAN of RUN has been connnected, at 34 Mbps, to the European ATM Pilot for functional and performance evaluations. Between 1994 and 1996, Professor Danthine was also involved in another RACE project, ACCOPI. November 1995 marked the beginning of OKAPI, an ACTS project.
Since its creation in 1992, Professor Danthine has been the chairman of the COST action 237 on "Multimedia Telecommunication Services".
He is often invited to present his vision of the evolution of the network architectures and of the information systems.
His tutorials on the hot topics of the network field are appreciated not only for the quality of the content but also for the provided insight.
Professor Danthine is a member of ACM, of IEEE, of the Editorial Board of "ETT", of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Wiley Series in "Communication and Distributed Systems"; he is the editor of several books and proceedings and the author of more than a hundred papers. Chairman of the TC6 of IFIP from 1979 to 1985, he has been Governor of ICCC since 1982. CRB Fellow in 1960, he received the Melchior Salier Prize in 1961, the "Bell Telephone-100th Anniversary" prize in 1983 and the IFIP Silver Core in 1986. In 1993-1994, he was Francqui Professor at the VUB. He is Doctor of Science Honoris Causa of the University of Kent (1991), and of the University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse (1996). Since October 1997, he has been Professor Emeritus at the University of Liège.
