with a large participation from industries and government labs]




The topic of assured communications between the application end-points
in a distributed embedded system is quite important for the military,
automotive, aerospace, and E-Commerce domains. It synergizes three
sub-areas of research: adaptation of system operations to the network
resources & environment conditions, reliable communications between
end-points in the presence of failures, and self-reconfigurations at
various system levels for increased resilience. The topic has spurred
the need for Intelligent Networking at various layers of the system
architecture to support these critical functionalities.

IAMCOM 2008 will thus offer a unique and focused forum for researchers
from academia, government and industry to share ideas and disseminate
new results in this important area..




Intelligent Networking has become popular in the context of distributed
embedded systems for aerospace, automotive, military, E-commerce, and
eco-surveillance applications. Unlike the telecom-centric networks of
the 90's that had an inward focus on network signaling & control today's
intelligent networks are designed from an application perspective. Here,
networks could mean a set of collaborative data processing nodes that
serve as application proxies ( e.g., airborne nodes in a police
surveillance network).

The goal of contemporary Intelligent Networking is to improve
application-level reliability & performance, security, QoS assurance,
and the like. The need for intelligent networking arises because the
target application systems are too complex to be studied in isolation. A
holistic approach to design that addresses both application and network,
can result in performance gains. Often, mathematical models and/or
closed-form representations of target application systems do not exist
or are too unwieldy to allow offline analysis. For instance, network
outages can have a profound impact on the application reliability in
many military applications, but can be tolerated in certain commercial
application domains. The mapping relationship between the network events
and the application activities are deeply buried in the system
operations, with no apparent mechanism for the system designers to track
these cross-layer relationships.

The complex nature of modern day embedded systems applications provides
a new dimension to the concept of intelligent networking --- and hence
opens a set of new research directions. This new dimension covers three
aspects: adaptation to resources & environment, reliable communications
between nodes, and reconfigurations at various system levels. The
purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for the presentation of
ongoing work in embedded systems control & management pertaining to the
three pillars of adaptation, communication, and reconfiguration. Papers
are solicited on the following topics:

1. QoS assurance architectures

2. Network state fusion, monitoring

3. Utility-based QoS adaptation

4. Vehicular network security

5. Capacity provisioning

6. Survivable links: restoration & routing

7. Dynamic resource allocations

8. Distributed management & control

9. Self-healing networks

10. Cross-layer approaches in system design

11. 'Control-Theoretic' approaches to performance management

12. Embedded systems applications --- aerospace, automotive, military &
sensor networks

13. Latency-sensitive data streaming & fusion

14. Service-level specification & verification

15. Energy-aware wireless operations

16. QoS stability in wireless networks

17. MAC-layer optimizations in wireless networks

18. Incentive based QoS models for wireless networks

19. Reliable communications in vehicular networks: Emergency Response

20. GPS based location & tracking

21. Location-sensitive data fusion

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings and
through the IEEE Digital Library Xplore.
