Capacity Sharing Workshop @ SIGCOMM 2014

without comments

Changing usage behavior, increasing demand for bandwidth as well as a continuous trend towards virtualizing networks and network functions raise questions on how to share limited capacity resources fairly and more efficiently while maintaining the best possible Quality of Experience (QoE) for users. While efficiency is most important when resources are spare, fairness need to be evaluated based on the different quality requirements of the various Internet services that we have today. For example, the Internet, especially the mobile Internet, was mostly engineered to provide a low loss service, low-latency services are not well supported today. In data centers, virtualization and high utilization promise economic benefits. However, effective, yet practical capacity sharing between tenants and applications is an important requirement. This has led to the development of enhancements in capacity sharing, especially congestion control mechanisms — some of these mechanisms are domain-specific, others lend themselves to adoption or generalization for inter-connected networks.

We are running a workshop on Capacity Sharing at SIGCOMM 2014 that invites submissions on these topics.
