IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on Emerging Design Choices

Scope of the conference
Exponential growth of video traffic and on-line storage services in recent years has brought performance degradation to previously successful services. Networks increasingly rely on Content-Distribution Networks (CDNs) to deliver popular services like YouTube, Deezer, Spotify and MegaUpload to an ever growing user population. Moreover, more and more users are gaining access to the network via smart mobile devices equipped with multiple wireless and wired interfaces, capable of storing a huge amount of
data and running all kinds of network services. Network connectivity is thus increasingly heterogeneous, of variable quality and intermittent.
In view of these trends, network providers and vendors are seeking to develop a more flexible network infrastructure, natively incorporating in-network storage, mobility, multi-path forwarding, and multi-homing. In particular, the concept of name-oriented networking (also referred to as content-centric or information-centric networking) is taking center stage in recent research on the architecture of the future Internet. Instead of host-to-host communication, as in the current Internet architecture, a name-oriented network architecture makes named data a first class entity. It cares about which data to fetch instead of which host to reach, using data names to retrieve content instead of addresses of data containers.
This basic idea has spawned a number of network architecture proposals that share common principles, including in-network storage, multi-path data forwarding, multiparty communication, mobility support and tolerance of intermittent connectivity, but differ, sometimes fundamentally, in the way they would be achieved.
The objective of the workshop is to present original work on emerging design choices within the scope of name-oriented networking enabling a reasoned comparison of their respective advantages and more clearly identifying the issues and solutions that transcend these differences. We solicit submissions of original work pertaining to the design, development, performance evaluation and analysis of network architectures centered on named data.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Security and privacy
* Name-oriented routing protocols
* Forwarding strategies
* Network management and operations
* Mobility management
* Delay tolerant networks
* In-network caching techniques
* Performance Evaluation
* Router designs
* Resource management and congestion control
* Transport protocols
* Traffic engineering
* New application designs and use cases
* Implementation and deployment experience
* Business models and economic issues
Submissions must be no greater than 6 pages in length and in a pdf file. They should report original work that is not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. Reviews will be single-blind: authors name and affiliation should be included in the submission. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop.
Conference proceedings will be included in the IEEE Xplore library.
Further submission instructions will be published on the conference web site.
