US-AUSTRALIA WORKSHOP: SELF-ORGANIZING WIRELESS NETWORKS BASED ON CROSS LAYER INTERACTIONS


December 17-19, 2008, Sydney, Australia
Four Points by Sheraton, Darling Harbour.

Organisers: Stuart Milner, University of Maryland (ISSNIP AI); Christopher
Davis, University of Maryland; Marimuthu Palaniswami, University of Melbourne (ISSNIP CI)


The three day workshop on Self-Organizing Wireless Networks Based On Cross Layer Interactions was a joint initiative of University of Maryland and University of Melbourne researchers, jointly funded by the NSF and ISSNIP, supporting the early phases of developing collaborative research and educational activities between the two countries in the area of self-organizing networks, in particular those based on cross-layer interactions. It followed on from the successful 2007 joint workshop (organised by Prof Milner and Prof Perreau) run in conjunction with ISSNIP 2007.


The goal of this proposed workshop was to advance the fundamental understanding of self-organizing networks, to advance their theoretical foundations, to identify the challenges of these networks, and to allow the  analysis and design of autonomously reconfigurable engineered systems integrating physical, networks and application domains. It focussed on research and educational issues of mutual interest to scientists and researchers in the U.S. and Australia. The central theme of the workshop was: What is the importance of the dynamic topological reconfiguration capabilities of the network to autonomous operation and responsiveness for real-time network applications. The program structured along the following lines:

• Day One: Self-Organizing Networks with Cross Layer Interactions
• Day Two: Application Dynamics and Implications of Self-Organization
• Day Three: Needed Research and Curriculum Recommendations

Each participant presented their views on the topics of the workshop theme consistent with their research followed by discussions and then breakout groups in order to provide detailed analyses and syntheses of the presentations and discussions. This highly successful event was attended by 20 researchers and generated a number of positive outcomes, including a proposal for a related Symposium at ISSNIP 2009, joint research funding proposal and featured presentations by the following distinguished researchers.

• Scott Midkiff, National Science Foundation
• Stuart Milner, University of Maryland
