     WASA-NGI-IV -
       4th Int. Workshop on Architectures, Services, and Applications
       for the Next Generation Internet

     Collocated with IEEE LCN 2011 in Bonn, Germany
     October 4-7, 2011


The 4th Workshop on Architectures, Services and Applications invites 
researchers and practitioners to share their ideas on novel network 
architectures and services to support emerging data-intensive Internet 
applications. The workshop focuses especially on architectures and 
services that expose high flexibility for scaling applications and also 
provide efficient processing of data streams. This includes all aspects 
related to QoS, mobility, heterogeneity, and interoperability while 
employing the possibilities of novel communication technologies.


The workshop solicits contributions regarding novel and possibly 
preliminary research results and new trends from industry related, but 
not limited to the following list of topics:

* Novel data-intensive Internet applications and their requirements for 
Future Internet architectures and services
* New Internet architectures and services enabling scalable and flexible 
deployment of data-intensive Internet applications
* Elastic functions and supporting data distribution networks, e.g., 
using server and/or network virtualization
* Peer-to-peer and service overlay networks for building communication 
services with support for QoS, mobility, heterogeneity, and interoperability
* Communication paradigms and models for data intensive computing, e.g., 
event processing, publish/subscribe, map reduce, group communication
* Solutions for data-gathering over heterogeneous network technologies, 
e.g., global sensor networks, delay-tolerant networks and so on.


Papers should be submitted in PDF format via the workshop page.
Contributions may present
    i) novel and possibly preliminary research results (8 pages),
   ii) new trends from the industry (2 pages),
  iii) demonstration proposals(2 pages).

Each submission will be reviewed by three members of the program 
committee. Papers are selected according to their originality, quality, 
and relevance to the workshop topics. Accepted papers will appear in the 
LCN Workshop proceedings and will be published within the IEEE digital 
library. For accepted papers, at least one author must register for the 
workshop and give a presentation at the workshop.
