Montimage is a French SME located in Paris. It is a research oriented company that proposes its know-how and tools for helping developers and operators improve the quality and reliability of their software.  The core business of Montimage is developing tools for monitoring and testing networks, applications and services; in particular, for the analysis of functional, performance and security aspects; and, for improving context awareness and end-user trust. Montimage's flagship tool (MMT) allows the capture of telecommunication packets, as well as any structured messages, for performing traffic analysis, estimating quality of user experience (QoE), analysing security and detecting/mitigating security attacks. It uses deep packet inspection (DPI), statistics and machine learning techniques to classify traffic and analyse its behaviour.  Montimage has participated in several collaborative research projects related to the Measure project, such as: FP7-SHIELDS (detection of code and protocol vulnerabilities), ANR-WebMov (testing and monitoring web services), ITEA2-DIAMONDS (multi-domain security methods and tools), and CELTIC-MEVICO (defining and validating future mobile LTE architecture). These projects have served to exploit innovative techniques integrated in MMT that include data analysis and correlation, detection of security properties, evaluation of QoS, estimation QoE, and combining active testing and monitoring to improve the development process.

Istanbul University can trace its origins back to 1453, when it was founded by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II as a school of philosophy, medicine, law and letters. It has gone through many iterations since then, serving as a madrasah (Ismalic theological school) and as an institution of higher education called the Darülfünûn (House of Sciences) in the 19th century, before being established as Istanbul University in 1933 after Mustafa Kemal Atatürk reformed Turkey’s education system.

Today it has 22 faculties – including the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Dentistry, the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Fisheries – as well as three departments, eight schools, 16 institutes, 61 application and research centres – including a technology transfer centre – and the state conservatory.

The university is spread across 12 campuses: Beyazıt-Central, Laleli-Vezneciler, Vefa, Horhor, Avcılar, Çapa, Cerrahpaşa, Şişli, Kadıköy, Bahçeköy, Bakırköy and Büyükçekmece. The main campus is at Beyazıt-Central, which houses the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economy, Faculty of Political Science, Faculty of Communication and the Hasan Ali Yücel Faculty of Education.
