Designing, deploying, and operating services at Internet scale require new and innovative approaches. The ROADS workshop goal is to bring together people exploring challenges in building widely distributed networked systems with those building global-scale facilities to enable research on future communication networks, with an emphasis on systems that run on real networks, providing real services to real users.
We are especially interested in the interaction between simulation (e.g., ModelNet or ns-3), emulation (e.g., Emulab), and more realistic deployment settings (e.g., PlanetLab) to better predict performance or architectural bottlenecks when scaling up a distributed service on experimental environments.
This workshop is open to everyone wanting to participate in a lively discussion on these topics.
ROADS '09 will host demonstrations, with the purpose of allowing the participants to the workshop to demonstrate 'live' their contributions. The demonstrations are not limited to contributions associated with papers that are presented in the workshop. We encourage the demonstration of contributions related to the workshop topics with a primarily focus on engaging people in discussion.
Submission and Selection
Interested contributors should send a one paragraph description of their demonstration. The workshop organizers reserves the right to select the demos that will be presented within the time limited session. Authors of selected demonstrations are encouraged to send a two page description of their demo. This description will be published on the workshop web site.
The demonstrations will be presented sequentially to the audience in a dedicated session. Presentation time is limited to 10-15 minutes per demonstration. It is not confirmed yet if and how good the internet connectivity at the workshop will be. It is therefore safe to prepare an offline version of the demonstration.
