--- SCOPE ---

New waves of networked applications continue to push the limits of what is
possible with networks today. Augmented Reality and Tactile Internet require
ultra-low latency measured in single-digit milliseconds. Requirements of
Industrial Internet applications that involve real-time industrial control
are even more stringent and tolerate no jitter at all. Compounding this
situation is the fact that many of those applications are mission-critical
and cannot afford any loss in connectivity or even single packets.
Collectively, these applications require High-Precision Networks that are
characterized by very stringent service level boundaries and associated
guarantees that border on determinism. This requires a rethinking of many of
the principles underlying existing "Best Effort" internetworking technology.

Various approaches are emerging that try to tackle those challenges. Data
centers with fixed topologies and a constant number of hops rapidly replace
conventional routing and more general Internet topologies. Networks are
becoming more programmable to allow to custom-tailor and optimize treatment
of packets and flows. Related technologies range from Service Function
Chaining to Network Slicing to SDN. One overarching question concerns how
these technologies can be harnessed and what additional approaches are needed
to be able to actually deliver on High-Precision Networking. This will
involve advances over a wide range of areas, such as programming and
processing of packets in the data plane, high-precision measurements and
telemetry with nanosecond accuracy at scale, control interfaces and ultra-low
latency control loops to optimize service levels, as well as advances in the
related platforms and algorithms that allow for their management and control.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, students and
professionals from industry and academia to discuss challenges and present
work-in-progress and solution approaches to deliver on High-Precision
Networks and their management and control.


Topics of Interest to the workshop include but are not limited to the
- Platforms to manage and operate high-precision networks and services,
e.g. Industrial Networks, Tactile Networks, Augmented Reality (AR)
- Proof and validation of high-precision service level guarantees
- High-precision measurement techniques for ultra-low latency and jitter
- Service assurance for micro services, for service function chains
- Applications for Inband Network Telemetry and iOAM
- High-precision networking using service function chaining
- In-network service level tuning and optimization
- Novel network programming models with applications in high-precision
- Applications of Artificial Intelligence for high-precision networking
- Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) interconnect and wide-area TSN; IP
and TSN convergence
- SDN applications for high-precision, high-performance networking
- High-precision networking over 5G
- High-Precision networking services using Fog and Edge Computing
- Deployment and operational experiences with Industrial Internet,
Tactile Internet, networked AR
