The 2nd IEEE Workshop on
Enabling the Future Service-Oriented Internet

Held in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2008
New Orleans, LA, USA, November 30, 2008


Technically Endorsed by:

IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on
Communications Systems Integration and Modelling


Call for Papers & Participation

The purpose of the workshop is to continue to provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas concerning service-oriented networks and computing, an important emerging paradigm for future Internet design.  Service- and application-oriented networks represent an area of convergence between communications and computing, based on modular, distributed and re-configurable capabilities, and blending network and service functions in a way that emphasizes end-user and business functionality.


The objective of the workshop is to address network-level as well as application and service-layer topics of analysis, design, monitoring and experimentation. The top-down interplay between services and networking creates unique modelling, design and implementation challenges. The goal of the workshop is to focus the community's efforts in building up this important area by discussing perspective issues and required breakthroughs in research and development


The workshop format will be a combination of original papers, review/white papers, quick hot topic presentations, and a panel discussion with participants from industry, the NSF, and academia. This will allow workshop participants to obtain a global perspective of the scope of this area and of the technical challenges associated with it, in a participative and interactive manner.


Prospective participants are invited to contribute to the following topics of the workshop:

          Architecture for future service-centric networks

          Scalability of future service-centric networks

          Modelling and simulation issues and methodologies

          Overlay, peer-to-peer and content delivery services

          Design and implementations for ubiquitous services

          Reliability and availability of future service-oriented Internet

          Management of services and service-oriented networks

          Service selection, composition, and delivery platforms

          Management of event driven architectures

          Distributed complex event processing systems

          Mapping to business functions and Enterprise Service Buses

          Cognitive networks and services

          Service-oriented routing and forwarding

          Optimization and cross-layer design

          Measurements and Quality-of-Experience monitoring

          Service-oriented network experimental trials, tools and test-beds

          Economics, pricing and charging of emerging services

          Distributed/market-based and game-based control of service-centric networks

          Analytic and simulation components of service-oriented networks and systems

          Workload characterization and distribution fitting

          Scheduling in multi-tiered environments.


The event is technically endorsed by the IEEE ComSoc Technical Committee on Communications Systems Integration and Modelling (TC-CSIM) and by IBM.
