6th Würzburg Workshop on IP: Joint EuroNGI and ITG Workshop on "Visions of Future Generation Networks"


July 31st - August 1st 2006


The focus of this year's workshop is on "Visions of Future Generation Networks". We would like to stimulate discussions on future Internet applications and future wireline and wireless Internet architectures to accelerate their development. To that end, several distinguished international keynote speakers are invited (M. Crovella, C. Diot, D. Raychaudhuri, and J. Rexford have already confirmed). We seek for further technical presentations addressing the focus of this workshop and which are suitable to promote discussions among participants. The contributions will be selected by the technical program committee with respect to these criteria. Topics of interest for technical presentations include, but are not limited to:

  • Network management
    • Self-management and self-configuration
    • Distributed network management
    • Distributed service control
    • Intra- and interdomain management
    • Performance management
  • Traffic measurement and modelling
    • Measurement methodology
    • Measurement tools
    • Trend and pattern analysis (short and long term)
