PlanetLab Everywhere - "PlanetLab - future directions"
October 27-28, 2005, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland

The opportunity PlanetLab provides for real-world experimentation at an unprecedented scale has sparked an explosion of research activity, with hundreds of active projects transmitting an average of 1 terabyte of data a day on the current system. At present, PlanetLab consists of 580 machines hosted at 275 sites in 30 countries. Most sites only host two or three machines. A single operations center hosted at PlanetLab Central (Princeton) is responsible for the management of all these machines. While PlanetLab has been a huge success by many measures, it continues to be limited in scale in terms of its size and the number of users it reaches.
This workshop will explore several new directions to expand PlanetLab's user base to literally every researcher or student who wants to conduct a wide-area experiment and expand its hardware base to every machine on the planet. The following will be topics at this workshop:
The goal of this meeting is to bring together users, developers, and researches interested in these topics and develop plans to independently or collaboratively move forward with projects to develop working prototypes in each area. Further it is intended to let participants discuss technical problems and exchange their experiences to improve the quality of cooperation in the PlanetLab community.
The meeting is supported by:
PlanetLab project - Princeton University
Evergrow EU project
MICS - Mobile Information and Communication Systems (Swiss National Center of Cometence in Research)
We suggest a mix of talks, panel discussions, case study presentations, experience reports, demonstrators, and "bird-of-a-feather" sessions. Participants are invited to submit proposals until Oct 13, 2005.
