Since its introduction at the turn of the millennium, network coding has evolved from a simple idea to a mature interdisciplinary filed, with a solid body of knowledge generated by a diverse group of researchers. Over the years, network coding techniques have had significant impacts and benefits in throughput, reliability, security, and energy efficiency. We believe that in the next fifteen years the field will expand even further into new multidisciplinary area and provide a fertile ground for the next generation of researchers, leading to new breakthroughs, discoveries, and solutions to long standing open problems.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss the long-term horizons of the field and identify key areas and research problems that will be in the focus of the research community. The workshop will include speakers from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, from theoreticians to practitioners, and from the founders of the field to younger faculty and students.
