With the recent development of technologies in wireless access and mobile devices, terminal and network mobility have become an indispensable component of today's Internet vision, and this is likely to continue in the near future, while affecting the way of the whole Internet architecture design. Yet, issues like efficient mobility management and optimizations, locator-identifier split, multi-homing, security and related operational/deployment concerns are still in their early stages of development. Moreover, the Internet architecture, its end-to-end principles and business models will require rethinking due to the massive penetration of mobility into the Internet.

MobiArch'06 welcomes participation, both from researchers and practitioners, in the exploration of recent advances in architectures, protocols, and experiences with emerging technologies on mobility support in the Internet, with an emphasis on new mobility protocols, mobility and location management, mobile network performance, multi-homing, security, architectural impacts and deployment considerations.

The workshop will include presentations and discussions of accepted technical papers, as well as invited talks and panel sessions. The proceedings will be published by ACM and ACM digital library.


Topics of MobiArch'06 cover all aspects of architectural issues and system support for mobility in the Internet, including but not limited to:

Mobility impact on the Internet architecture

Architectures and protocols for mobility support in the Internet, ranging from approaches in link layer, network, transport to session/application layers and cross-layer design

Locator/identifier split, multihoming and load sharing issues

Security and privacy issues in mobility networks and impacts to Internet architecture

QoS and middlebox issues in mobility networks and impacts to Internet architecture

Economic and deployment issues of mobility infrastructure design
