FlexNGIA 2021 : 1st IFIP/IEEE International workshop on Fully-Flexible Internet Architectures and Protocols for the Next-Generation Internet

Bordeaux, France
Event Date: May 17, 2021 - May 21, 2021
Submission Deadline: Jan 08, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: Feb 18, 2021
Camera Ready Version Due : Mar 05, 2021


The rise of edge, cloud  and in-network computing and the proliferation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution in networking  are  promoting  the development of innovative applications like virtual/augmented reality, telepresence, autonomous systems, remotely controlled robotics and tactile applications, promising  to  revolutionize health-care, transportation, industry, agriculture, society and culture. To deploy such applications and to comply with their requirements, there is a need for new Internet paradigms including a Tactile Internet that combines ultra low latency with extremely high availability, reliability and security and has been the focus of both ITU and IETF/IRTF related initiatives.

Today’s Internet falls short when it comes to providing such requirements due to several design and implementation limitations. To overcome these there is a need to rethink and provide new architectures and protocols by efficiently harnessing recent Technological advances in terms of virtualization, network softwarization, NFV/SDN, Data plane programmability and even when they break the tenets of the current Internet. Such an architecture is embodied in the FlexNGIA Architecture ( that has the potential to enable novel network services and management schemes adapted to the requirements of future applications.

Call For Paper

Topics of Interest

  • The topics addressed in this workshop include, but are not limited to:
  • Analysis of  the characteristics and requirements of future network applications.
  • Gap analysis highlighting the limitations of the traditional Internet architecture and protocols and their inability to cater to future applications’ requirements.
  • Design and evaluation of new architectural paradigms and communication protocols as well as network management schemes based on AI/ML and distributed decision making .
  • Use-cases and specific applications and potential mechanisms, protocols and schemes to ensure the performance and reliability required by future applications including the move to Industry 5.0 and 6G networks.
  • Solutions to further develop the FlexNGIA towards a full-fledged architecture by addressing key research challenges including service function chaining, functional decomposition, alternative Network/Transport protocols, resource management, signaling, design of high-performance virtual network functions and services, high-precision monitoring, measurements and in-network telemetry, pricing and economics, Security and privacy (please check FlexNGIA Research Challenges)
