CALL FOR PAPERS

1st IFIP/IEEE International workshop on
Fully-Flexible Internet Architectures and Protocols
for the Next-Generation Internet (FlexNGIA 2021)

in collocation with IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on
Integrated Network Management (IM2021)
17-21 May 2021 // Bordeaux, France

https://www.FlexNGIA.net/workshop

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The rise of edge, cloud and in-network computing and the proliferation of Artificial
Intelligence (AI) are promoting the development of innovative applications like
virtual/augmented reality, telepresence, autonomous systems, remotely controlled
robotics and tactile applications, promising to revolutionize health-care,
transportation, industry, agriculture, society and culture. However, to deploy such
applications and to comply with their requirements, there is a need for a Tactile
Internet that, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), combines
ultra low latency with extremely high availability, reliability and security.

Unfortunately, current Internet architecture and protocols fall short when it comes
to providing such requirements due to several fundamental design and implementation
limitations. As a result, there is a compelling need to rethink the Internet
architecture and protocols to overcome those limitations by efficiently harnessing
recent technological advances in terms of virtualization, network softwarization,
NFV/SDN, data plane programmability and even when they break the tenets of the current
Internet. Such an architecture is embodied in the FlexNGIA Architecture
(https://www.flexngia.net) that has the potential to enable novel network services and
management schemes adapted to the requirements of future applications.

==================
Topics of Interest
==================
The topics addressed in this workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Analysis of the characteristics and requirements of future network applications.

- Gap analysis highlighting the limitations of the traditional Internet architecture
and protocols and their inability to cater to future applications’ requirements.

- Design and evaluation of new architectural paradigms and communication
Protocols as well as network management schemes based on AI/ML and distributed
decision making.

- Use-cases and specific applications and potential mechanisms, protocols
and schemes to ensure the performance and reliability required by future
applications including the move to Industry 5.0 and 6G networks.

- Solutions to further develop the FlexNGIA towards a full-fledged architecture by
addressing key research challenges including service function chaining, functional
decomposition, alternative Network/Transport protocols, resource management,
signaling, design of high-performance virtual network functions and services,
high-precision monitoring, measurements and in-network telemetry, pricing and
economics, Security and privacy.
