The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Emerging Design Choices in Name-Oriented Networking (NOMEN 2013)


Call for Papers [PDF Version, TXT Version]

The concept of name-oriented networking (also referred to as Content/Information-Centric Networking) has emerged in recent years as a promising paradigm for the future Internet architecture. Instead of address-oriented communication, as in the current Internet architecture, a name-oriented network architecture considers named data as first class entities and rethinks the communication model in terms of what data to fetch instead of which host to reach. This basic idea has spawned world-wide research efforts in exploring various design approaches to enable applications communicating by data names instead of host IP addresses in a scalable, secure, and efficient manner.
Following the success of NOMEN 2012, the objective of this workshop is to present up-to-date research advances in the field, with an emphasis on new applications enabled by the novel paradigm and on the evaluation and deployment challenges. More specifically, we solicit contributions in

  • new applications and use cases facilitated by the name-oriented networking paradigm (for example IoT networking, enterprise networks, supporting peer-to-peer applications, health-care applications, vehicle networking, online gaming);
  • implementation, scaling and deployment challenges; and
  • methodologies for evaluating existing design choices and comparing their respective advantages.

The workshop solicits submissions of original work that pertains to the design, development, evaluation, and analysis of name-oriented networks and applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Business models and economic issues
  • Deployment challenges and test-bed experience
  • Methodologies for measuring and comparing system performance
  • New application designs and use cases
  • Data Naming
  • Security and privacy
  • Name-oriented routing protocols
  • Forwarding strategies
  • Network management and operations
  • Name-based routing protocols
  • Multi-path routing protocols
  • Load balancing
  • Mobility management
  • Delay tolerant networks
  • In-network caching techniques
  • Performance Evaluation
  • Router designs
  • Resource management and congestion control
  • Transport protocols
