                  CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                        IWAN 2000
The Second International Working Conference on Active Networks

                  October 16-18, 2000

        Musashino Research and Development Center, NTT
                  Musashino-shi, Tokyo, Japan


               Sponsored by  IFIP WG 6.7
        In cooperation with  IPSJ, IEICE
Technically Co-sponsored by  IEEE Communications Society

>>  Early registration deadline:         September 14, 2000

Incorporating  computational capabilities  into  the network is
expected to ease the provision of  value-added services and  to
accelerate network infrastructure innovation.    Active Network
technologies  arise  in  this  context  as  the  solutions  for
offering a flexible,  dynamically customizable and programmable
network infrastructure.     Network services are expected to be
dynamically  customized  for  particular types of applications,
users or individual packets.
As the first International Working Conference on Active Network
held in Berlin,  IWAN'99 was aimed at providing the opportunity
for discussions on various views, frameworks, applications, and
implementations of the Active Network technologies.    IWAN2000
follows  this  line,   and  also  offers  the  opportunity  for
evaluating  this emerging technology.  Reporting experience and
results  from  projects  and trials are seen as a major goal of

The Tutorial: October 16

The following tutorial will be held:
"Active Internet Technology and Service"
Georg Carle (GMD-FOKUS, Germany)
Active Networks  play  a key role  in the evolution of  packet-
switched networks,  as they  provide  a new networking platform
that  is  flexible  and  extensible at runtime.  By allowing to
dynamically program the network nodes, customized communications
can be provided to the applications. Active Networks give fine-
grain  control  to  meet  specific  requirements  of  security,
reliability,  availability,  and  quality  of  service  under a
variety of conditions.   The phrase "active networks"  does not
specify  a  specific  approach.  Instead,  the  term is used in
connection with a wide range of techniques.
This tutorial  introduces  models  and  terminology  of  active
networks,  points out motivating factors and key issues  behind
existing work, and describes two basic approaches: the discrete
or out-of-band approach, and the integrated or in-band approach.
The node architecture plays an important role.  Main objectives
and current directions of research are introduced.   The active
network  architecture  developed  in  the  DARPA-funded  active
networks program is discussed  and  compared with approaches of
selected research projects.
Key technologies and mechanisms of active networks are treated:
operating system support,  resource abstractions,  programming
interfaces, languages for active networks.
Security requirements  and issues are described,  together with
possible approaches to address the issues.
A number  of  applications  of  active  networks are presented:
network  management,  Quality  of  Service  control, multicast
communication, caching, and rate adaptation and error recovery
for voice and video transmission.
Open issues  are  discussed that have to be addressed in order
for active networks and active applications to become reality,
and  possible future directions of  active networking research
are given.

The Conference: October 16-18
The technical program will offer two keynote addresses,
nine sessions and one panel.
