DIMACS 2000-2003 Special Focus on Next Generation Networks Technologies and Applications: Working Groups

Interdisciplinary working groups will explore specific research areas. Each working group will consist of researchers with expertise in the field and/or in one of the applications areas. We will bring these working groups together for a first meeting. There will be informal presentations and lots of time for discussion and interaction, including or consisting of a public workshop.

During the public workshop, others in the community interested in the field will be given an opportunity to learn about the working group's efforts and the working group will have the opportunity to learn about the efforts of others that they might not have known about. Because we want to be inclusive, we will use this public meeting to identify individuals from the community who might wish to join the working group or have their students do so, and we will include them in the second working group meeting, which could be public or private and could be a working meeting or a large workshop.

The goals of the first get-together at DIMACS will be to formulate problems, share ideas and approaches, and set an agenda for future interactions. These interactions will take place via email and such interactions as take place normally in scientific collaborations. After six to twelve months, we will bring the working groups back together at DIMACS for another meeting. We expect that at this second meeting, the participants will have an opportunity for intensive collaborations and also that they will make informal presentations to each other about their progress or there will be a public workshop. At the end of the second get-together, we hope that the working groups will have obtained exciting results, at least of a preliminary nature, and we will have laid the groundwork for extensive future collaborations.
