           CALL FOR PAPERS

   New Trends in Network Architectures and Services:
   International Workshop on Self-Organizing Systems
           (IWSOS 2006)
       September 18 - 20, 2006
       University of Passau, Germany



The evolution of the Internet reveals surprising turns and obstacles.
Centralized approaches of introducing new services and architectures
consistently failed to materialize at large scale. Quality of  Service,
group communication, or mobility support are only some examples for
the difficulty with orchestrated approaches.
The success story of the Internet, on the other hand, is strongly linked
to decentralization. Robustness to failures or flexibility in introducing
new applications such as the World Wide Web or Peer-to-Peer systems have
been key momentum to technological advancements and economics. Future
networks are envisioned to be highly complex and difficult to manage due
to heterogeneity of networks, spontaneous set-up of networks, and the
envisioned number of interconnected devices, appliances, and artifacts.
The question that poses itself is whether self-organization can be
exploited to a larger scale for solving some of the pending problems for
such future networks. Self-organization may even play a key architectural
role of the future Internet for enhanced flexibility and evolvability.
It is the goal of this workshop to bring together leading international
and multi-disciplinary researchers to create a visionary forum for inves-
tigating the potentials in self-organization and the means to achieve it.

Key Note Speaker:

  * A Panel on "Would self-organized or self-managed networks lead to a
    better networking world?"
  * A Works in Progress Session focusing on emerging research
  * Industrial exhibitions and demonstrations
