Joint SmartenIT/eCOUSIN Workshop on Social-aware Economic Traffic Management for Overlay and Cloud Applications (SETM)
October 18, 2013, Zurich, Switzerland In conjunction with CNSM 2013
In the current Internet, important new overlay and cloud applications significantly influence volume and patterns of Internet traffic. While overlay applications such as Content Delivery and P2P store and circulate information among each other with no awareness of the topology and state of the underlying transport network infrastructure, cloud applications delegate storage and computation to the network, which is valuable for devices with limited resources and access. At the same time, Online social networks (OSN) like Facebook gain more and more popularity and attract millions of users. The widespread adoption of OSNs has drastically changed the way content is consumed in the Internet, as content consumption is nowadays highly impacted by the information shared by users through OSNs and the popularity of a given content is most often dictated by its "social" success. In turn, the adoption of socially-aware traffic management mechanisms as a new management approach allows for a tighter integration of network management and overlay service functionality which can lead to cross-layer optimization of operations and management, thus, being a promising approach to offer a large business potential in operational perspectives for all players involved. This approach shows benefits for overlay and cloud applications and services which are currently dominating Internet traffic, but still have a large potential for optimization, e.g. in terms of QoE, energy efficiency, inter-cloud traffic. The SETM Workshop (supported by the FP7 STREPs SmartenIT and eCOUSIN) is the continuation and evolvement of three successful Economic Traffic Management workshops, where the last workshop was co-located with ITC22. Topics of Interest: Economic Traffic Management, Protocols, Architectures Traffic management and its related economics, supporting models, mechanisms, technologies and their evaluation ETM application scenarios Incentive Schemes and Mechanisms for Network Services Application-layer traffic optimization (ALTO) Accounting and Charging Mechanisms Protocols as Economic Support Functionality Economically-driven Network Architectures Economic QoS and QoE Management Prediction Methods for QoS, QoE, and user behavior Economic Security Management Energy-efficient Network Management Economics of Cloud applications and services, Data center solutions Virtual, P2P, Overlay Networks Pricing Models for Commercial Services Efficient Bandwidth Allocation, SLA Management Future network and services business models Future Internet Socio-economic Aspects Social-aware network and service management Exploitation of social networks for improved services Solution approaches for improved performance Improving security for communication services Social-aware network architecture with built-in content dissemination functionality New apps/services/technologies based on social networks Measurements and models for social-awareness Social-aware prediction of content popularity & consumption Social-enhanced management of content placement, storage, look-up, and delivery Social-aware content delivery networks (CDNs) Social-enhanced mobile infrastructures Network and service management for cloud applications Intra-cloud management for local and distributed clouds Inter-cloud services with several cloud stakeholders involved Network and service monitoring in federated clouds Automated configuration and repair for reliable services Interoperability and connectivity of cloud data centers Architectures and infrastructure for (distributed) data centers
