The Congestion Control Research Group (CCRG) investigates research issues related to Internet networking, primarily congestion control. The CCRG is a discussion oriented group where relevant papers are chosen each week and discussed, followed by relevance to our current research projects.

The CCRG is for students at WPI. If you would like to join the group, please send email to Professor Mark Claypool.

Funding: The CCRG funding sources have included Verizon, Viasat and NSF.
