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.
