Call for Papers: Workshop on Self-Adaptive Networking at SASO 2010

Self-organizing communication networks are often built with explicit protocols (e.g., DHCP). Organization is a primary goal and so it is easy to recognize these systems. Self-adaptive networks often have their adaptation mechanism built into a protocol as a component. Common examples include congestion avoidance in TCP and collision detection in Ethernet. Through this workshop, we plan to explore the ways in which self-adaptation is currently used in networking (often without being recognized) and how ideas from the self-* community can be applied to perform these functions with a principled approach.

This workshop will bring together researchers from different areas such as wireless networking, quality-of-service, networking applications, intelligent networking, and self adaptive technology to gain broad insights into specific research issues related to self-adaptive networking and to foster discussions about ongoing research, establish directions for future research and collaborations, and identify best practices for applying self-adaptive techniques to networking. Specific topics of interest include:

• Dynamically Configurable Protocol Stacks
• Meta-level control and monitoring of networks
• Use of feedback mechanisms in network operations
• Self-explaining network systems
• Self-adaptive, self healing or autonomic networks
• Centralized versus distributed network control
• Measurement of network properties in support of self evaluation
• The role of state abstraction in network self evaluation
• Computational models of network performance
• Adaptive routing, queuing, and scheduling
• Learning in adaptive networks
• Integration of self-adaptive techniques in self-organizing networks
• Mobile adaptive protocols
• Protocol composition
• Dynamically reprogrammable switches
• Policy-based Network Management systems used to build self-adaptive networks
• Energy-aware networks
• Use of homeostasis and highly optimized tolerance (HOT) techniques
