INFOCOM 2006 25
th Anniversary Panel
“Networking Retrospectives and Predictions”
Moderator: Harvey A. Freeman, Booz Allen Hamilton
A perspective on the major evolutionary trends in computer communications as well as the nature of the associated research activities that have occurred over the past 25 years, and will occur over the next 5-10 years. What was truly an essential new technology? What was a hyped but otherwise secondary new technology? What about the future?

Routing: Lessons Learned and Challenges for the Future.
Chair: Dan Massey, Computer Science Department, Colorado State University
Network routing was among the first few research topics addressed in the ARPANET. Since then a number of results have been achieved and the existence of today's global Internet is strong evidence of successful advances. Yet at the same time, there were several lessons learned and even lessons that should have been learned. Today's Internet not only illustrates successes, it also reveals several limitations and open challenges. After many years of routing research, this is still a dynamic, active, and challenging research area. This panel considers routing from the perspective of algorithms, protocol designs, policies, and operations. It takes a look back at what has been achieved, considers how problem definitions have evolved, and reviews some of the open challenges

Panel. Design Principles
for Enhanced Mobile Networks and Services
The explosive growth and deployments of wireless networks have created strong demands for the highest level of "Quality of User Experience" for new and enhanced mobile networks and services that is common in wireline networks. The need to network mobile users and wireless devices, and more generally to allow the formation of spontaneous ad-hoc networks, brings about several challenges, including the integration of heterogeneous network technologies, QoS provisioning, security and mobility management. The objective of this panel is to discuss innovative ideas and explore future directions in identifying the architectural design principles toward enabling enhanced mobile networks for the highest level of "Quality of User Experience". The focus will be on the following issues:
