CALL FOR PAPER

* THEME OF THE WORKSHOP

Communication pathways of the next generation networks will whiteness
two prevalent relaxations of singularity and persistence. The
relaxation of pathway singularity is related to the parallelism, which
allows data flows to be streamed concurrently. Through concurrency,
the performance contemporary file sharing systems, automatic backup
systems and content distribution networks will achieve exponential
growth. Moreover, concurrency will play a key role in future
bandwidth-intensive applications that involve the transfer of massive
data posing capacity demands reaching Gigabytes and yet Terabytes per
day. Such bandwidth-intensive applications include scientific
experimentations, High-Definition (HD) media distribution,real-time
distance learning, and telemedicine.

Pathway persistence is a fundamental principle, which mandates all
node/link hops to be active and available concurrently during the data
flow transfer.On the other hand, pathway intermittency is relaxation
of this principle,which does not mandate such concurrency. However,
data flow reachability must be guaranteed. Link and Hop intermittency
is now frequently appearing in a number of emergent communication
domains. Link intermittency is a physical characteristic of space
communication networks due to orbital rotation and occlusions. Hop
intermittency is also appearing to be intrinsic to vehicular and
aero-networks. It is believed that it is becoming an important issue
in emerging personal area networks (PAN) well. Intermittency is also
present in peer-to-peer domains. A fundamental feature of P2P is that
bulk of the clients are not logically connected 24/7. Thus, systems
need to provision for online/offline communication. In large volume
content distribution at the macroscopic level, pathways are logically
intermittent, but physically persistent. Such macroscopic
intermittency has been encountered in content distribution networks
(CDN). Large scale media distribution, cooperative backup and large
scale physics/science data distribution applications face such logical
intermittency.

Efficient route scheduling under concurrency and intermittency forms
an interesting research challenge. Classically, route can be computed
with various levels of knowledge. Interestingly, there is a strong
trend towards routing with knowledge about network resources and
circuit demand- especially in high performance and scientific
experimentation network domain. Internet2's Dynamic Circuit Network
(DCN) is one example where large volume connections can be planned
even at optical layer for scheduled massive data
transfers. Furthermore, space communication network and science
networks (such as ESNet) are experimenting with advance scheduling for
efficient and quality assured data transfer. This workshop will
address the key research issues related to architectural and protocol
design of concurrent computation exploiting pathway concurrency and
intermittency at the physical and logical levels. Furthermore, this
works also has special interest in on-demand scheduling-based
communication in this type of networks.
