Over the past decade, the Internet has revolutionized the way people communicate and do business, driving the emergence of new and exciting applications. As the Internet has matured, the focus of innovation is shifting to the development of new applications and services, and their enabling technologies.   This symposium is intended to bring together the academics and industrialists engaged in this field, and exchange information about advances in the field and speculate about the future (r)evolution.

The Symposium on Internet Services and Enabling Technologies targets academic and industrial research activities that are focused on techniques to improve the delivery of services over the Internet, both wireline and wireless.   It encompasses the design, implementation, and management of networked services and applications, as well as underlying protocols and technologies that enable them, including, for example, SIP, P2P technologies, network virtualization, and presence information. Related areas include the high-level architectures and design frameworks that are used by networking consultants and designers to develop new Internet services, or manage their operations.

Of particular interest are original speculations about the future of Internet services and their enabling technologies, compelling position papers, and submissions describing promising work in progress.

Topics of Interest
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to the following:

• Services enabling protocols and protocol extensions (including SIP, HTTP, RTSP/RTP, etc.)
•  Peer-to-Peer applications and technologies leveraging/supporting peer-to-peer applications
•  Middleware for new Internet based applications
•  Converged networks and applications (including VoIP and 3G/NGN telecom networks)
•  Applications leveraging content networking technologies
•  Application paradigms (e.g. endpoint-hosted vs. network-hosted)
•  Software as a service model for delivering applications on the Internet
•  Services over the wireless Internet (including services on ad-hoc and sensor networks)
•  Security and privacy management in hosted Internet applications
•  Platforms for rapid creation and deployment of network services
•  Design methodologies for Internet services
•  Systems and architectures for hosting Internet facing services
•  Call center operations and global sourcing of services and applications
•  Emergency services
•  Service delivery, service assurance, and root-cause analysis of service problems
•  Financial and business tools needed for Internet based services
