Below is the preliminary call for papers for IEEE OPENARCH 2003. Our
apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.


The Sixth IEEE Conference on Open Architectures and Network Programming
                     (Co-Located with INFOCOM 2003)
                            April 4-5, 2003
                           San Francisco, CA
                    Evolving Future Network Services
                            Call for Papers

The Sixth IEEE Conference on Open Architectures and Network
Programming (OPENARCH) will focus software and hardware technologies
required to facilitate the evolution of the Internet to better support
new services.  OPENARCH is an international forum with a single-track
format that provides researchers and developers with a focused, highly
interactive opportunity to present and discuss current work and future
directions in network services, and in open, programmable network

Open and programmable networking is driven by the desire to allow the
Internet to continue its rapid evolution whilst becoming the commercial
network infrastructure of choice.  However, over the last decade
technological advances have led the network infrastructure to become
more complex rather than less (multiple technologies, protocols and
topological layers), obstructing the introduction of new network
services. Over the last few years the open and programmable networking
community has redefined the basic architecture of networking systems
and has blurred the distinctions between routers and end-systems. At
the same time, new services, such as p2p systems, have become
immensely popular; they pose significant challenges for network
providers and impose new requirements on the underlying infrastructure.

The goal of OPENARCH 2003 is to move forward the discussion and
understanding of these issues in networking systems, network services
and wide-area service deployment. We solicit submission of high quality
original research in these areas, with emphasis on implementations and
experimentation. Authors are invited to submit full papers for
consideration. Suggested topics include:

    * Active and programmable networks
    * Hardware and software implementation techniques
    * Modeling of network services in open network architectures
    * New network services and applications
    * Overlay, virtual, and peer-to-peer networks
    * Programming for pricing, accounting, and billing
    * Proxies, middleboxes, and mediation devices
    * Reliability of programmable networking technologies
    * Security in an open networks and distributed applications
    * Service creation platforms and enabling technologies

Instructions for Authors

Papers must be formatted according to the IEEE standard double-column
format.  All papers must be in the 11pt font.  Please note:
submissions longer than 9 pages will not be reviewed.  Authors are
requested to submit papers in the Adobe Portable Document Format
(PDF).  Instructions for electronic submissions are available at:
http://www.openarch.org .

Accepted paper(s) will be published in a bound Conference
Proceedings. A CD-ROM version will be available as well.

Deadline for registration of papers    November 10th, 2002
Deadline for receipt of papers         November 17th, 2002
Notification of acceptance mailed      January   5th, 2003
Final camera-ready papers due          January  17th, 2003

Financial Support
We expect a limited number of travel stipends to be available. Students
whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are
encouraged to apply if such assistance is needed. Requests for stipends
should be addressed to the General Chair. A limited number of IEEE
Communications Society Student Travel Grants may be available for
student authors from outside North America.
