CFP RWI2009: Workshop on Integration of the Real World and the Future Internet (RWI 2009) Marina del Rey, California, June 10, 2009

International Workshop on Integration of the Real World and the Future Internet (RWI 2009) Marina del Rey, California, June 10, 2009, co-located with DCOSS'09

Recently, Future Internet research has attracted a lot of attention across the globe with a number of initiatives such as the Future Internet Assembly in Europe, GENI in the US and AKARI in Japan. A common theme is the requirement to adopt an all encompassing approach taking into account requirements and views from a number of angles: networking protocols, socio-economics, services, security, etc. The ubiquity of mobile devices and proliferation of wireless networks will allow everyone permanent access to the Internet at all times and all places. Trillions of heterogeneous network enabled devices such as sensors and actuators located in open space or attached to existing objects, RFID enabled items, robots and generally many heterogeneous devices with communication and computational capabilities are integrated into the fabric of the Internet, providing an accurate reflection of the real world, delivering fine-grained information and enabling almost real time interaction between the virtual world and real world. The increased computational power of these devices has the potential to empower people to generate their own applications for innovative social and cognitive activities in any situation and anywhere. This wireless connection is not limited to user devices, almost any artefact from clothing to buildings can be connected and collaborate as a network enabled device. Furthermore new sensor technologies and wireless sensor networks provide environmental intelligence and the capability to sense, reason and actuate. This leads to the exciting vision of the interconnection of artefacts embedded in our real environment, forming a society of "intelligent things" and "smart spaces" and thus making the real world "clickable". The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners addressing the Future Internet and in particular the real world aspect of it. The workshop should serve as a place to exchange ideas between different national and regional initiatives as well as research projects and researchers.
The main topics of interest include the following:
* Management, scalability and heterogeneity of devices and users: how can a vast number of devices be managed and networked efficiently? Will current naming and addressing be efficient and sufficient? How does IP scale to low complexity (e.g. with the use of 6LoWPAN)? How can we integrate more data centric services on the Internet (in contrast to address centric mechanism)? In particular wireless sensor and actuator networks will be unreliable, dropping off and connecting fluently to the Internet - can we design efficient Plug and Play (PnP) mechanisms to manage these edge networks? * Networked knowledge and context - What are the means to describe this information? What are the mechanisms that we need to manage search, and interpret this knowledge (semantics). How can we integrate it with other information sources? What will be the traffic patterns that we have to deal with in addition to the commonly seen data traffic (email, web-browsing, IPTV) on the Internet and will the collective use of the Real World Internet impact these services? How can this data be modelled and represented? How can we compose new context information on the fly? * Privacy, security and trust - How to implement fast and secure cryptographic algorithms and protocols in devices highly limited in resources? How can we design usable and privacy friendly identity management tools that enable users to stay in control of their data? How can we provide anonymity, unobservability, unlinkability and pseudonymity properties? How can we anonymise data generated by individuals? How can we design transparency and feedback mechanisms that educate users and raise security and privacy awareness? How can we protect the infrastructure from adversaries carrying traffic analysis attacks on the communication system? * Impact of RWI traffic - What is the RWI traffic model(s)? What quality of service requirements the RWI applications' have for the underlying transport networks? How to serve large number of RWI traffic sources? How to reduce the network resource utilization while preserving the quality of service?

The following topics in the context of the Real World Internet are also of interest:
*    Standardisation
*    Social and legal implications.
* Service understanding / automatic composition and modeling e.g. ontologies Cross-layer collaboration (business systems / network services / devices) Self-sustainability (self-* features e.g. self-management, self-healing etc.) Business models - context based solutions (no one size fits all approach) Ease of use / application modeling / toolkits Infrastructure management (HW & SW set-up/maintenance etc) Devices Identification Interoperability among systems and objects
