About Tidal News

Tidal News is an ICT research project funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The project focuses on properties of and mechanisms for large-scale data dissemination in the Internet including both cluster-based and infrastructure-less P2P systems. Applications of interest range from devising new technologies for online social networks to improving the protocols that power up large-scale clusters of companies like Google and Amazon.com. We emphasize non-functional properties of dissemination (including privacy, dependability, and adaptivity) while also considering dissemination semantics (such as a notification system and publish/subscribe for textual documents).
