IREEL provides a way to conduct experiments with real Internet applications and protocols in the context of networking courses. This platform consists of a remote controlled network emulator system and end-stations providing a set of pre-defined applications and protocol mechanisms opened to test with. Control on the emulation system, and on the end systems will be given to students in order to perform experiments. A set of end-to-end mechanism examples, mainly focusing on transport and application protocols, are available.
The IREEL platform uses the OMF and OML suite for the management of the experiments. On the last two years it has been used intensively at local Universities. As a result more that 12000 experiments have been configured by the students with an experiment success rate of more than 99%. A survey given to the students confirmed the potential of IREEL, as they rated IREEL as more efficient tool to illustrate general and specific elements of the lectures as compared to the actual tools used in labs.
The IREEL platform has been used at the following Universities:
- University of NSW in Semester 2 2010.
- University of Sydney.
- University of Western Sydney. (currently in use)
- ISAE (France).

Pizza Talks are informal fortnight meetings amongst students to discuss interesting and relevant topics related to their research. In other words, there is not necessarily a formal (i.e., slide-based) presentation, just a topic or several topics that are up for discussion.
Every talk will have a "discussion facilitator" - a person who will motivate the discussion by providing the background and additional information on the topic.
In 2012 the following topics have been discussed
- 2012-01-27: I'm Richer Than You---A Secure and Distributed Solution to the Millionaire Problem
- 2012-02-09: Towards Workload Characterization of Auction Sites
- 2012-03-01: Pizza Talk Pizza Talk---An Introspection
- 2012-03-15: MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture
- 2012-03-29: PhD Research, Career Goals & Opportunities
- 2012-04-12: Information control in a world with smart devices - sharing what you eat without sharing who you ate it with
- 2012-04-26: The Tale Of Two Cities (labs) - CRL and ATP
- 2012-05-10: DataMiser - We reduce your cellular data, you reduce your bill
- 2012-06-07 Open Source Software -The Bad, The Good and The Ugly
- 2012-06-21 Creativity wanted - dead or alive?
