List of accepted workshops

You are invited to register and participate in any of the following workshops
(except the NREDS workshop, which is structured to be "by invitation").

  • 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.

  • Workshop on Models, Methods and Tools for Reproducible Network Research (MoMeTools)

    Compared with other scientific areas such as experimental physics, network research appears significantly less mature concerning methodology. The goal of this workshop is to critically assess the current models, methods and tools of network research for identifying shortcomings of the state-of-the-art, and to discuss approaches for improvements and innovation. The workshop aims for sharing knowledge about how to apply today's tools most successfully, and for generating a common understanding about what is needed for network research to progress more rapidly and to ensure widely reproducible results. The workshop solicits submissions that improve our understanding of the current state-of-the art, and that help to identify improved models, methods and tools.

  • Workshop on Networking Education: How to Educate the Educators? (NetEd)

    This second ACM SIGCOMM-sponsored workshop devoted to the topic of networking education will bring together faculty from a broad spectrum of colleges and universities, industry engineers and scientists, and others with an interest in education to discuss curriculum design and teaching practices in the field of computer networks. The workshop will give both new and experienced educators an opportunity to share their views and experiences on the do's and don'ts of networking education, including content, teaching techniques and teaching paradigms. The discussion topics are undergraduate and graduate curriculum, tips for new networking educators, hands-on projects in networking courses, and a comparison and discussion of networking education around the globe.

  • Workshop on Network-I/O Convergence: Experience, Lessons, Implications (NICELI)

    The performance and commodity price advantages of modern LANs have created a convergence of networks and I/O. This convergence promises both price efficiencies and true interoperability, for storage and for cluster interconnect. The NICELI workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the merits, drawbacks, applications, and practical implications of protocol and implementation designs. Approaches based on Internet protocols are of particular interest. NICELI is a forum for research results, protocol design rationales, significant implementation experience, and architectural papers related to the convergence of networks and interconnect.

  • 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.

  • Workshop on Revisiting IP QoS: Why do we care, what have we learned? (RIPQOS)

    For over a decade the Internet engineering and research community has debated, designed, and ignored IP Quality of Service tools and techniques. There's a sense that something might be needed, but little agreement on why and who will pay. At times the very notion of QoS has seemed to be a pointless waste of time, almost a solution waiting for a problem. This workshop is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss the history of IP QoS research and development, review what could have been done better, and perhaps develop a new focus going forward.
