NIST CO-SPONSORS LARGE-SCALE NETWORK RESEARCH PLANNING WORKSHOP.
Recommendations from this workshop will help shape key research issues that warrant government investment in the field of large-scale networking, a field in which past government investments over two decades have led to dynamic, explosive economic growth during the 1990s. The workshop was essential to help government agencies distinguish important research that industry will not undertake from research that industry will conduct. NIST provided key perspectives on these issues, which helped an interagency strategic planning group develop initial ideas to stimulate discussion at the upcoming workshop. Some of the initial ideas suggest that government agencies should fund networking research in the following areas: technology for agile, optical transport networks, techniques for shared use of scarce public wireless spectrum, automated device and service discovery and configuration, approaches to improve security and privacy in networks, autonomous network prediction and control, and theories for understanding gl obal-scale information infrastructures.
