WASA-NGI Workshop 2010

Second Workshop on Architectures, Services and Applications for the Next Generation Internet (WASA-NGI) June 29, 2010, Karlsruhe, Schloss Karlsruhe


This workshop offers an opportunity to discuss challenges and requirements with respect to building network architectures enabling flexible service provisioning and data management form the viewpoint of practitioners and users. A special focus lies on the requirements that arise from different application scenarios in such a context. Questions in this context might be: What issues in the Internet have to be solved for enabling such future applications? What kind of support from the network is required? Which supporting services in the network would be helpful?


This workshop series is organized by the SpoVNet (Spontaneous Virtual Networks) project, funded by Landesstiftung Baden-Württemberg. It involves researchers from three universities in Baden Württemberg ( Karlsruhe , Mannheim and Stuttgart ) contributing to develop a platform enabling a seamless transition to the Next Generation Internet. The workshop program is composed of presentations from practitioners as well as researchers with expertise and experience with regard to self-organization, virtualization, and the Internet of things.
