The Internet architecture has been remarkably successful in allowing a planet-scale internetwork to form. However, this architecture is losing its original simplicity and transparency as new classes of applications, operational and management requirements, business models, security mechanisms and scalability enablers give rise to point solutions that extend the architecture without regard to the original design principles.
While these mechanisms are necessary for Internet operation under current economical, technical and social conditions, their combination has significantly reduced the potential for incremental evolution of the Internet architecture. This loss of flexibility is already being felt as the number of Internet nodes grows by another order of magnitude.
Several substantial Future Internet initiatives have started in Europe, the US and Asia, and the vendor and network operator communities are also actively discussing the limitations of the current Internet architecture as well as its potential evolution.
This workshop will discuss what the real underlying problems are with the Internet and how we might fix them, so that the architectural simplicity and clarity of the Internet can be regained and retained for another 30+ years.
This workshop solicits original, high-quality papers that analyze and discuss ideas for a new Internet architecture, including specific improvements to current Internet protocols, especially at the internetworking, transport and application layers, new internetworking components that integrate into the existing architecture and ideas for clean-slate internetworking architectures.
ReArch'08 covers all aspects related to the current and future Internet architecture including, but not limited to, how the following impact on that architecture:
Papers that present interesting, fresh ideas at an early stage are more suitable for this workshop than highly polished results or incremental refinements of previous work. Submissions may include position papers that point out new directions and stimulate discussion; position papers should be clearly marked. Submission must be original and not already published in any other conference proceedings or journal. Proceedings of the workshop will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Submitted papers must be at most six (6) pages long (including figures, tables, references, etc.) in the standard ACM double column format. All text must use font sizes of 10 points or larger. Longer submissions will not be reviewed. The review process is single-blind. Submissions via EDAS.
