-------------- AAA-IDEA 2006: CALL FOR PAPERS -------------

The Second International Workshop on
Advanced Architectures and Algorithms
for Internet Delivery and Applications

Pisa, Italy -  October 10, 2006

(AAA-IDEA '06:  http://aaa-idea.org)

in conjunction with the First International Conference on 
Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools 
(Valuetools '06: http://www.valuetools.org)

------------------------------------------------------------------------ ---

Innovations in network-based services continue to have strong impact on our world, resulting in a huge research interest in infrastructures that supports traditional and novel applications based on Internet. Accesses to interactive and multimedia services through a large variety of Internet devices require guaranteed performance, resource availability and proximity of content to the network access points. Scalability issues pose a number of design and performance problems at any level: systems, protocols, software. There is a number of open research challenges in improving content generation, personalization and delivery.

The goal of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers, developers, web service providers, application and network designers from academia and industry to exchange ideas about the problems they are facing and to discuss recent and innovative solutions.

Topics of interest to this workshop include (but are not limited to) performance studies and solutions (algorithms, protocols, architectures) that tend to improve user experience in accessing interactive applications based on Internet, and in particular:

* Content delivery systems
* P2P architectures
* Scalable and adaptive web-based system
* Caching and replication
* Content adaptation and transcoding
* Quality of service
* SLA-based services
* Protocols for Web-based systems
* Reliability and high availability
* Security
* Performance measurement and monitoring tools
* Workload analysis and characterization
* Traffic monitoring and billing strategies
* Streaming media
* Mobility management
* IPv6 impact

------------------------- PUBLICATION ------------------------------
The submissions to be presented at the workshop will be selected, based on their originality, technical merit and topical relevance of their contents. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings that will be available at the workshop. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE and will be available through IEEExplore.

----------------------- PAPER SUBMISSION ---------------------------
We encourage full papers that present well-developed research results (up to 8 pages double column, including figures and references), but also short papers that are more speculative in nature, works in progress and position papers are solicited (up to 5 pages double column, including figures and references). Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication. If you are unsure whether your work falls within the scope of the conference, please contact the Program Co-Chairs. All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by experts. The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered for the workshop in order for that paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled for presentation. All submissions should be sent electronically in Postscript or Adobe PDF format. Detailed instructions about submissions are available at the submission page (http://aaa-idea.org). The electronic submission is available at COCUS (http://cocus.create- net.it/cocus/login/loadEventDetails.do?id=21).
