In recent, cyber phiscal systems (CPSs) are paid attention because they are expected to solve various social issues by collecting sensed data from human-beings and things in real world via networks and processing them in cyber world, and providing feedback to real world. In particular, networks play important roles in CPSs. Telecommunications Laboratory in Division of Advanced Information and Communication Technology will cultivate human resources capable of devloping advanced research and technology in telecommunicaions field through education and research of advanced network control, network architecture, and evaluation methdologies of network performance.
