 IPv6DFI 2006 - IPv6 - Deploying the Future Infrastructure

July 16-18, 2006, Silicon Valley, USA

in conjunction with

ICNS 2006 - International Conference on Networking and Services


Abstract submission: February 15 2006(*
Submission deadline: March 5, 2006
Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2006
Camera-ready and Registration: April 15, 2006 (hard deadline)
*) After February 15th we expect full paper submissions until the March
5th deadline



IPv6, the Next Generation of the Internet Protocol, has seen over the
past three years tremendous activity related to its development,
implementation and deployment. Its importance is unequivocally
recognized by research organizations, businesses and governments
worldwide. To maintain global competitiveness, governments are
mandating, encouraging or actively supporting the adoption of IPv6 to
prepare their respective economies for the future communication
infrastructures. In the United States, government's plans to migrate to
IPv6 has stimulated significant interest in the technology and
accelerated the adoption process. Business organizations are also
increasingly mindful of the IPv4 address space depletion and see within
IPv6 a way to solve pressing technical problems. At the same time IPv6
technology continues to evolve beyond IPv4 capabilities. Communications
equipment manufacturers and applications developers are actively
integrating IPv6 in their products based on market demands.

IPv6 creates opportunities for new and more scalable IP based services
while representing a fertile and growing area of research and technology
innovation.  The efforts of successful research projects, progressive
service providers deploying IPv6 services and enterprises led to a
significant body of knowledge and expertise. It is the goal of this
workshop to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of technology and
deployment related information, to provide a forum where academia and
industry can share ideas and experiences in this field that could
accelerate the adoption of IPv6. The workshop brings together IPv6
research and deployment experts that will share their work. The audience
will hear the latest technological updates and will be provided with
examples of successful IPv6 deployments; it will be offered an
opportunity to learn what to expect from IPv6 and how to prepare for it.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. The
IPv6DFI 2006 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and
posted on Xplore IEEE system. A best paper award will be granted by the
IARIA's award selection committee.

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize
dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and
paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and
manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines.
Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating
their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the
panel, as well as short biographies. Please send your proposals to
