9.00 - 10.00 : Keynote 1 :
  • Ken Calvert, University of Kentucky, USA : Reflections on the development of Active and Programmable Networks" "Research in Active and Programmable Networks has been ongoing for more than ten years now. What have we learned? This talk will attempt to draw some conclusions (both technical and nontechnical in nature) based on the author's experiences in the DARPA program. Although the talk will be primarily backward-looking, the goal is to inform current and future efforts to develop and deploy new network architectures of all kinds." 10.00 - 10.30 : Break 10.30 - 12.00 : Talks session : "Programmable networks and heterogeneity"

Rather than driving services onto routers, our goal is to provide service programmers with abstractions and functionality on end-systems that facilitates service support on routers and gateways throughout the network. As such the abstract architecture incorporates end-systems, boundary gateways, and routers, however, isolating the details of nodal facilities from application and service programmers. The architecture is designed to self-configure and self-optimize each node, fully exploiting the hardware facilities at each node, and across a network of nodes, without explicit instructions from network programmers. We discuss the elements of the architecture, describe the components we have constructed, and discuss the challenges in realizing the remaining components and ultimately in assembling them into an integrated network system." 10.00 - 10.15 : Break 10.15 - 11.45 : Talks session on "Node Architectures"
