Objectives in Summary
The workshop sets the goal of concentrating researchers, developers, and standardization leaders in the area of Path Computation Element (PCE) architectures, an Internet Engineering Task Force standard framework. The purpose is to gather and establish a forum of world-leading thinkers, concentrated developers and all PCE enthusiasts, determined to rapidly facilitate the commercialization of advanced Internet technology, infrastructure and applications, and help software defined networking reach its full potential. Within the scope of the workshop is also an in-depth discussion on the value of open-source software, documentation and data repository. The findings and recommendations in the workshop will be written in form of a report, encompassing a number of related subjects including the vision for future research and standardization activities. The proposed workshop will promote the culture of visionary research and technology innovation and high-tech talent in Europe, as well as globally. The workshop is expected not only to gather, but also sustain a best-of-breed think-tank of leaders in this field, and more importantly, a community-led platform for innovation in network engineering and science. While all elements of this workshop come from focused disciplinary areas of emphasis, i.e. from a range of perspectives in Internet architectures, protocols, software engineering, or security, we see these perspectives as an opportunity that the resulting research vision will promote research across these disciplines with a whole-greater-than-sum-of-parts expectation.

Background on the Path Computation Element may be found at:
- A Path Computation Element (PCE)-Based Architecture
- Unanswered Questions in the Path Computation Element Architecture
- A Path Computation Element Tutorial
- An Advanced Path Computation Element Tutorial
- A Path Computation Element Primer
Each and every participant is asked to submit a one-page position statement in Word or PDF.
The statements must be submitted at least 24 hours in advance, although earlier submission will be welcomed.
Each statement will be published on this wiki and will be publically visible. Participants are therefore requested not to reserve copyright.
Why a Position Statement?
We want to achieve two things from your position statements:
- We would like to help you prepare for the workshop so that you get as much as possible out of the two days. To do this, it will help if you spend a little time thinking about PCE, its future uses, and what you would like to get from the meeting.
- We would like all of the participants to get to know each other a little before arriving at the meeting. A short position statement will give everyone a chance to understand the mindset and interests of all of the other participants.
What Do I Put in My Position Statement?
- No More Than One Page!
- Please tell us about how you think PCE may be applied to your particular area of interest. Or tell us how you think PCE might be grown to apply into new technologies. What excites you about the potential of PCE? What are its potential drawbacks?
- You could approach this position statement by answering just one of the questions below, or you could provide short answers to more than one of them. But focus in on your key areas that you think PCE might grow into:
- How to architect future networks with PCE and related protocols and network management subsystems?
- What are the research challenges in domain areas of data, content, and wireless cellular and sensor technologies used in cyber physical systems?
- What are the future applications and how can PCE help SDN fully succeed in legacy and open network environments? Which security and privacy considerations are needed to assess these applications?
- What are the software engineering principles in developing PCE-based architectures?
- How can the community assist EU and other funding bodies to increase the research impact and visibility in this area?
- What are the next short-term and long terms needs and steps? How can they be identified?
- How can the vision of the industrial and academic community be best articulated?
