Venue: TKP tokyo eki yaesu conference center 7F
Date: November 12-14, 2012
Host: NICT/Japan, NSF/USA

Objective

NICT and NSF have hosted two workshops so far and researchers from Japan and USA discussed themes about advanced research issues regarding future network. As a result, from 2010, the 1st Japan-US collaborative research projects have started.

NICT and NSF hosts the 3rd workshop this year to promote international collaboration between Japan and USA and establish the 2nd Japan-US collaborative research projects. This workshop treats issues that will become obvious after trillions of objects (terminals and information) are accommodated to the future network in 2020.

This workshop consists of following two parts.

  • Day 1 (12 Nov.): The debriefing session of the 1st Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network
  • Day 2 (13 Nov.) and Day 3(14 Nov.): The break out sessions to discuss the themes for the 2nd Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network (Only the accepted researchers)

In the 1st part 'The debriefing session of the 1st Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network', there are presentations from each principal investigator of the projects about their outstanding results.

In the 2nd part 'The break out sessions to discuss the themes for the 2nd Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network', the researchers from Japan and USA will discuss the advanced issues on Future Network. The theme of the sessions is Beyond Trillions. It treats issues that will become obvious after trillions of objects (terminals and information) are accommodated to the future network in 2020.

The debriefing session of the 1st Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network

The day 1 (12 Nov.) consists of a debriefing session of the 1st Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network. There will be presentations from following projects.

  • Self-organization Based Control for New Generation Networks
    (Osaka Univ., University of Colorado)
  • A Theoretical Framework for Governing Nodes' Behavior in a Large-scale Network through Local Interactions
    (Tokyo Metropolitan Univ., KDDI Lab., Hiroshima City University, UC-Berkeley)
  • Secure and Resilient Virtual Trust Routing Framework for Future Internet
    (Osaka City University, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Arisona State University)
  • Long-Range Active Collaborative Environment (LACE)
    (NAIST, JAIST, Univ. of Tokyo, USC)
  • Design of Multiprocess Routing under the Hierarchical Automatic Addressing
    (NICT, University of Massachusetts)

The break out sessions to discuss the themes for the 2nd Japan-US collaborative researches on Future Network

Beyond Trillions - manage and control a network that accommodate trillions of objects

This sessions treat issues that will become obvious after trillions of objects (terminals and information) are accommodated to the future network in 2020. Novel approaches for network design / modeling, technologies to manage and control the mobility of huge amount of objects, high-speed / high-capacity network to accommodate communications among huge amount of objects will be required in such situations.

Issues to be treated are such as:

  • increase of network traffic congestions caused by a huge number of devices (terminals, sensor devices)
  • increase of delays to discover a target device or information via network
  • increase of cost to identify, authenticate, authorize and trace a huge number of mobile terminals
  • demands of high speed data transfers and a huge amount of network capacity for communications and data deliveries among objects.

Themes of the sessions will include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Network Design and Modeling
    • Modeling and analysis of large-scale complex systems, self-organizing networks
    • Modeling of communication network for real-world socializing
    • Real network design based on the result of network science
      (e.g. nature inspires, statistics / analysis, chaos theory, etc.)
    • Designing green core / access network
  • Mobility
    • Managing and controlling huge number of moving objects / terminals
      (e.g. distributed object discovery, seamless handovers, etc.)
    • Secure and reliable network protocols considering huge number of moving objects / restricted devices
    • Novel applications and services on large scale and high density mobile / sensor networks
  • Optics
    • Optical packet switched network architecture
    • Greening optical core / access network
    • Circuit (connection) mobility
