                SIGCOMM Workshops: 2005, Auguat 22-26, Philadelphia


This year, SIGCOMM 2005 continues its expanded scope with significant
emphasis on workshops. We solicit papers and participation for
the following one-day workshops, that will be held in conjunction
with SIGCOMM 2005 from August 22 - August 26, 2005
in Philadelphia, PA, US.

1. Workshop on mining network data (MineNet-05)

Todays IP networks are extensively instrumented for collecting a wealth
of information including traffic traces (e.g., packet or flow level
traces), control (e.g., router forwarding tables, BGP and OSPF updates),
and management (e.g., alarms, SNMP traps) data. The real challenge is
to process and analyze this vast amount of primarily unstructured
information and extract structures, relationships, and higher level
knowledge embedded in it and use it to aid network management and
operations. The goal of this one day workshop is to explore new
directions in network data collection, storage, and analysis techniques,
and their application to network monitoring, management, and 
remediation. The workshop will provide a venue for researchers and
practitioners from different backgrounds, including networking, data
mining, machine learning, and statistics, to get together and
collaboratively approach this problem from their respective vantage

2. Workshop on experimental approaches to wireless network design and 
analysis (E-WIND-05)

Research in wireless networking is rapidly becoming more experimental.
Research prototypes are being developed for systems ranging from 
large-scale sensor networks to high-speed wireless access networks. 
Moreover experimentation and measurement studies are being performed
with off-the-shelf hardware and operational testbeds. The goal of this
workshop is to bring together experimentalist researchers from diverse
backgrounds including wireless hardware platforms, wireless
communications, wireless testbeds, and measurement
of deployed wireless systems. The workshop will provide a forum for
exchange of ideas, challenges, and work-in-progress discussions between
both the wireless and wireline measurement communities. The workshop
will leave a large space to discussion and possible coordination.

3. Workshop on delay tolerant networking and related networks (WDTN-05)

Today, the most successful network architecture is that of the Internet.
It has scaled well beyond the original plan of its designers, and the
Internet Protocol has been carried on a great number of underlying
protocols, including itself. However, the Internet's protocol
architecture suffers some problems when implemented on classes of
networks for which it was not originally designed. For example, when
disconnection and reconnection is common, or link performance is highly
variable or extreme, one or more of the traditional Internet protocols
do not work well. In this workshop, we wish to explore physical networks
that operate significantly differently from wired, connected networks
and the protocol architectures and algorithms used to deal with such
situations. Techniques for making applications tolerant to disruptions
and/or high delays are also requested.

4. Workshop on economics of peer-to-peer systems (P2PECON-05)

 From file-sharing to distributed computation, from application layer
overlays to mobile ad hoc networking, the ultimate success of a
peer-to-peer system rests on the twin pillars of scalable and robust
system design and alignment of economic interests among the
participating peers. Following the success of the first two workshops,
the Third Workshop on Economics of Peer-to-Peer Systems will again bring
together researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to
discuss the economic characteristics of P2P systems, application of
economic theories to P2P system design, and future directions and
challenges in this area.
