Workshop on Network Research: Exploration of Dimensions and Scope (NREDS)

Two years ago, the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board took a first exploratory examination of what the field of networking research might become in Looking Over the Fence at Networks: A Neighbor's View of Networking Research. This workshop is intended to be the next step in that process, beginning to take a more organized look. Not only is it valuable to consider specific directions that research might move, but we also expect to explore "meta-level" issues, such as the nature of our field, how it relates to others and how we evaluate new research. Participation in this workshop will be by invitation based heavily on position papers. Participation will be largely through discussion on selected topics. The final report of the workshop will be published in CCR.
