CALL FOR PAPERS
PRESTO 2010
Workshop on Programmable Routers for Extensible Services of Tomorrow

Philadelphia, USA

Call for Papers
---------------
There continues to be great interest in the networking research community in rearchitecting the distribution of functions in IP networks. These efforts can be described as a refactoring of router and switch functionality into modular components and well-defined interfaces, with the goal of enabling greater extensibility in networks. Extensible network infrastructure would enable the deployment of new network services, customization of networks for different applications and customers, easier network management and so forth. Efforts in this space span the range from open APIs for select management, data and control plane functions to various open router platforms including software-based routers, open firmware and open hardware platforms.

Programmable network elements hold the promise of accelerating innovation and service deployment in networks. At the same time, greater programmability could exacerbate already challenging network management tasks. This workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between researchers and industry practitioners with a goal of driving service innovation in IP networks using novel extensible router and switch architectures.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Abstractions for programmable network elements.
* Architectures for open/programmable network elements, including transport, wireless and packet forwarding devices.
* Efficient and flexible data plane programmability.
* Cross-layer aware programmability.
* Network element virtualization.
* Network composition, configuration and provisioning in virtualized environments.
* Platforms and APIs for network wide control and service programming.
* Programmable network elements for cloud computing and datacenter networking.
* Architectures, services and/or service features enabled by programmability.
* The impact of programmability on network management and operations.

The workshop solicits original papers on completed work, position papers, and/or work-in-progress papers on the challenges raised above. Papers that bring out new and interesting approaches at an early stage of their development are very welcome as are papers that describe industry efforts related to the CFP.
