In conjunction with ACM SIGCOMM 2003

Workshop on Future Directions in Network Architecture (FDNA-03)

The current Internet architecture has been remarkably successful as the underpinning of a global, general-purpose, decentralized data communication network. Architectural decisions made 30 years ago have allowed the Internet to quickly support new applications and adapt itself to dramatic changes in technology. Now, new forces - new classes of special-purpose networks and the changing requirements facing general purpose networks - argue that reflection on the current state of network architecture and consideration of new architectural principles, structures, and strategies is timely. FDNA-03 is a forum for presenting research results, promising directions, and rising challenges related to the broad topic of new developments in network architecture.
