While exact load and resource characterization in the open Internet environment is difficult to attain, some forms of performance assurance are highly desirable, especially in the face of large uncertainty. There is a number of open research challenges in optimizing and improving content delivery mechanisms and support for delivered content. The goal of this one-day workshop is to bring together researchers, developers, web service providers, application and network designers from academia and industry to exchange ideas about the problems they are facing and to discuss recent and innovative solutions.
Topics of interest to this workshop include (but are not limited to) performance studies and solutions (algorithms, protocols, architectures) that tend to improve experience of users of services and applications based on Internet.
