advances in distributed systems and transportable software together with
increasingdemand for better control of quality of service in multiservices
networksare driving a reexamination of network software architectures.
There isa new opportunity to reconcile the perspectives of the computing
and communicationcommunities in new network architectures that support
service creation,QoS control, and the joint allocation of computing and
OPENSIG will offer a forum for the communication of experimental as well as theoretical results aimed at a better understanding of the overall networking architecture and its realization in software. It will encourage a shift of the processes of service creation, resource allocation and control from ad-hoc solutions to a discipline of network programming.
