Packet Dynamics refers broadly to measurements, theory and/or models
that describe the time evolution and the associated attributes of
packets, flows or streams of packets in a network. Factors impacting
packet dynamics include cross traffic, architectures of intermediate
nodes (e.g., routers, gateways, and firewalls), complex interaction of
hardware resources and protocols at various levels, as well as
implementations that often involve competing and conflicting

Parameters such as packet reordering, delay, jitter and loss that
characterize the delivery of packet streams are at times highly
correlated.  Load-balancing at an intermediate node may, for example,
result in out-of-order arrivals and excessive jitter, and network
congestion may manifest as packet losses or large jitter. Out-of-order
arrivals, losses, and jitter in turn may lead to unnecessary
retransmissions in TCP or loss of voice quality in VoIP.

With the growth of the Internet in size, speed and traffic volume,
understanding the impact of underlying network resources and protocols
on packet delivery and application performance has assumed a critical
importance.  Measurements and models explaining the variation and
interdependence of delivery characteristics are crucial not only for
efficient operation of networks and network diagnosis, but also for
developing solutions for future networks.

This workshop will provide a forum for interaction among researchers and
practitioners working in the area of packet dynamics. We solicit papers
dealing with all aspects of packet dynamics, including measurements,
characterization, modeling and mitigation of its adverse effects.

TOPICS OF SPECIAL INTEREST (but not limited to)

o       Measurement of stream characteristics (reordering, delay,
losses, jitter, etc.)

o       Measurement and estimation of network characteristics

o       Tools, metrics and benchmarks

o       End-to-end packet dynamics

o       Timing aspects in packet dynamics

o       Impact of load balancing, parallelism within nodes, etc. on
packet dynamics

o       QoS mechanisms and their impact on packet dynamics

o       Models (e.g., relating protocols, resources and architectures to
packet dynamics)

o       Mitigation of adverse effects of reordering, jitter, etc.

o       Traffic engineering

o       Impact of packet dynamics on application performance


Regular or short papers

The IPDy 2006 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
Press ,  posted on IEEE Xplore , and indexed by SCI and EI.

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All
received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals
can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to
[log in to unmask], [log in to unmask], or
[log in to unmask] using "ICNS'06 IPDy" in the email subject.

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
[log in to unmask], [log in to unmask], or
[log in to unmask] using "ICNS'06 IPDy" in the email subject.
