Workshop on Converged Networks

Date: September 12, 2008

Venue: LIP6, UPMC Paris Universitas (Laboratoire d’Informatique de Paris 6)
 106, Avenue du Président Kennedy 75016 Paris

undefinedPII and undefinedVITAL projects jointly organise the 2nd Workshop on IMS Enabled Converged Networks - New paradigms for services delivery.

The purpose of this workshop is to openly discuss the potential impact of emerging technologies and new paradigms on the future of IMS enabled converged networks, with a focus on service delivery. Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Control plane features for federated networks
  • Architectures and design of overlay networks
  • Network virtualisation techniques
  • Application of peer-to-peer technologies for network management and control
  • Evolution of IMS in view of emerging technologies such as peer-to-peer and autonomics
  • The role of testbeds for experimentation emerging technologies at scale

This workshop aspires to answer the question, how IMS evolution can cater for the integration of new paradigms in service delivery. To address the aforementioned issues, the one-day programme consists of presentations by invited speakers from industry and academia, as well as a panel session.

The workshop is targeted at service architects and product managers responsible for deploying new services over converged networks. Technical issues will be covered at a level that will support strategic decisions.
