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.
