> (excuse me cross posting - hopefully it's not so noisy)
> Dear all,
> On behalf of the program committee, I'd like to make an announcement
> of a CFP for a forthcoming SIGCOMM workshop on IPv6.  Details are
> available at http://www.sigcomm.org/sigcomm-conference-current/ipv6/
> (major contents of the web page are also pasted below).  Although you
> might think SIGCOMM is too "academic" for such practical forums as
> IETF, we are actually seeking practical insights as well as
> theoretical analyses in this workshop as described in the CFP.
> So, please consider submitting a paper on your recent
> research/engineering results related to IPv6.
> Also, it would be very nice if you can distribute the CFP to whatever
> venues that you think are suitable for this workshop.
> Thanks,

> 1. Motivation and rationale for the workshop
> This one-day workshop aims to bring together researchers and
> practitioners from academia and industry to engage in an in-depth
> discussion on various research and deployment issues of IPv6 and their
> impact on the future of the Internet. In recent years the global
> deployment of IPv6 started taking off, especially in the Asian-Pacific area.
> To date IPv6 development efforts have mainly focused on protocol
> standardization, product development, and network operations, rather
> than as a research target.
> However, we believe that the accumulated experiences in these practices
> now provide interesting research opportunities, not only for those who
> have been involved in IPv6 development but also for the broader network
> research community. We expect the workshop to open a dialog between
> networking researchers and practitioners, and foster synergistic
> activities thereafter.
> 2. Call for Paper (CFP)
> ACM SIGCOMM IPv6 and the Future of the Internet (IPv6+) Workshop seeks
> papers describing significant research contributions to the field of
> IPv6 and their relevance on the future of the Internet. IPv6 was
> primarily motivated by the address shortage problem of IPv4. It provides
> a much larger address space than IPv4. However, the competing technology
> Network Address Translation (NAT) has alleviated the address shortage
> problem to some extent, and other problems, such as routing scalability,
> management, mobility, and security, have become increasingly prominent.
> At the mean time, the global deployment of IPv6 has gradually taken off.
> Modern operating systems are shipped with both IPv4 and IPv6 stacks, and
> IPv6-compatible backbones came into existence. As it is costly to
> migrate from one network architecture to another one, can we take this
> opportunity to address additional problems in the IPv4 Internet by
> extending the IPv6 protocol suite? What new problems are/were
> encountered in the process of deploying IPv6? And what lessons have we
> learned?
> We invite submissions that shed light on the above questions.
> Submissions in both academic and operational flavors are welcome.
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
>     * Experiences and lessons learned from pilot deployments of IPv6
>       networks and applications
>     * Experimental and measurement results from operational IPv6 networks
>     * Advantages and challenges the very large IPv6 address space bring
>       to the Internet routing system
>     * Scalable and robust solutions to multi-homing and traffic engineering
>     * Host and Network Mobility
>     * Multicast and Anycast protocols
>     * Worms, DoS, and other security threats in IPv6 networks and
>       possible enhancements to address these challenges.
>     * IPv6's Applicability to sensor networks, low-power personal area
>       networks, and other types of challenged networks
>     * Impact on application development and deployment
>     * A critical assessment of IPv6's viability as a global
>       communication infrastructure for the future or of its fundamental
>       limitations, if any.
> 3. Submission guideline
> Submissions must be no greater than 6 pages in length, must be a pdf
> file, and must follow the formatting guidelines at
> http://www.sigcomm.org/sigcomm2007/workshop-psg.html. Submissions that
> deviate from these guidelines will be rejected without consideration.
> Reviews will be single-blind: authors name and affiliation should be
> included in the submission. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
> present their papers at the workshop. Submissions must be original work
> not under review at any other workshop, conference, or journal.
> 4. Workshop dates
> Paper submission due:   April 6, 2007
> Paper acceptance notification:  May 11, 2007
> Camera-ready due:   June 8, 2007
> Workshop:    Aug 31, 2007
