SCOPE: Active networks aim at providing easy introduction of new network services by adding dynamic programmability to network devices such as routers and switches. While in the early days of research in this area the focus was on the basic mechanisms needed for moving and installing code in the network, research now has shifted towards the real benefits active network technology may provide: Network programmability and service deployment architectures bringing just the right services to the customer at just the right time and location. It is obvious that with the accelerating trend towards mobility, ad-hoc networks, and content-aware distribution, active and programmable networks will play an important role in future network architectures. At IWAN 2003 we aim at bringing together members of the various communities using active and related techniques, and provide a forum for discussion and collaboration, involving researchers, developers, service providers and potential users. We encourage the submission of papers that cover the application of active techniques to all aspects of network based communication, including active transport, active services and service deployment, active terminals and active management. In addition, the meeting will have a focus on relating customer needs and customer oriented services to active techniques. It is expected that most submissions will include proofs of concept and/or quantitative results, however, we will welcome high quality descriptive contributions, where the ideas are particularly novel, or where the concepts introduced are likely to influence the work of other groups. Authors are invited to submit papers addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:
