CFP: Special issue of IEEE Internet Computing on “Future Internet Protocols”

Dear Colleagues,
We are still looking for submissions, even if you did not give us a
notice of interest by the 15th.  Please also note that the CFP
includes application-level protocols: I would like to emphasize these
three CFP bullets:
. Policies and protocols for cloud computing and enterprise management
. New technologies for policy and protocol enforcement
. New protocol support requirements for likely future applications

The first bullet would include any novel support for cloud support
based on some kind of protocol necessary for a distributed approach.
The second includes technologies for checking that protocols meet
policy requirements in systems.
The last bullet item is fairly inclusive and would include, e.g.,
networked systems that acheive homeostasis based upon cellular automata.

Best regards,
Charles Petrie

Future Internet Protocols

Final submissions due: 1 March 2012
Publication date: November/December 2012

Please email the guest editors a brief description of
the article you plan to submit:

(Please use this subject line
CFP: Special issue of IEEE Internet Computing on “Future Internet Protocols”  (keyword: Berlin))

The Internet is based upon a set of layered protocols, their servers,
and architectures that support them. The Internet has now evolved
far beyond the original TCP/IP protocol and architecture (see
Peering column by Oliver.) Application protocols have similarly
evolved as evidenced by HTML.5.   Future applications and basic
usage will require significant changes, however, a clean slate
approach is not likely to be adopted making a feasible migration path
a must for any new proposal.

This issue explores the current and near-future evolution of the
Internet in terms of its supporting protocols and policies.  Topics
include new Internet and application protocols, and application
requirements.  Examples of topics include:

. High-latency tolerant TCP (also for mobile environments)
. TCP replacement protocols
. Beyond HTML 5.0
. Virtualization of Networks
. Requirements for app management
. Smart Routers
. Policies and protocols for cloud computing and enterprise management
. New technologies for policy and protocol enforcement
. New protocol support requirements for likely future applications

Submissions should report results, with strong technical content, that
make novel contributions to Internet engineering or science and show
an evaluation of the results.  Proposals for new systems must at least
be prototyped and evaluated, and be so promising that the relatively
early work warrants publication.  Speculative proposals will be
rejected by the editors and not be reviewed. (Controversial speculation
should be submitted to one of our columns, such as “Peering”.)

For questions, please contact the guest editors of this
special issue.

All submissions must be original manuscripts of fewer than 5,000
words, focused on Internet technologies and implementations. Longer
submissions will be rejected and not reviewed.
