NEMA 2010 - The 1st International Workshop on Network Embedded Management and Applications



VenueNiagara Fa, Canada Canada



Topics/Call fo Papers

Modern network devices are becoming increasingly “intelligent” and programmable. Examples range from router scripting environments to fully programmable server blades. As a result, networked applications are no longer constrained just to servers that are interconnected via a network, but can migrate into and become embedded within the network itself. This promises to accelerate the current trend towards systems that are increasingly autonomous and to a certain degree self-managing. The next frontier lies in applications that go beyond traditional management and control functions and that are becoming increasingly decentralized, not constrained in scope to individual systems. Examples include decentralized monitoring, gossip-based configuration, network event correlation inside the network across multiple systems, overlay control protocols, and network-aware multi-media applications. At the same time, another trend looks at utilizing increased programmability of networks to add more networking intelligence outside, not inside the network.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform at which researchers and practitioners can discuss the latest trends and ongoing research in network-embeddable applications and contrast different emerging approaches of how to best leverage increased network programmability. The program committee would like to encourage submissions in this area. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
? Network embedded applications
? Programmable networking infrastructure
? Open Router Platforms
? Applications for programmable networking infrastructure and Open Router Platforms
? Software Defined Networking and Manageability
? Network embedded management
? Decentralized management algorithms
? Intelligent network instrumentation
? Instrumentation and manageability integration of network-embedded applications
? Network management implications of programmable network devices
? DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) enabled management and control applications
? Network-enabling the Cloud
? Intelligent networking inside the Cloud
? Context and energy-aware networking; “Embedded Green”

The workshop is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and IFIP. The proceedings of the workshop will be published by Springer. In addition, authors of selected papers from the workshop may be invited to contribute an expanded version as a contributed chapter in a forthcoming book by Springer on the same topic.
