> So this time, let's stick to routing problems. Russ suggests the intersection of naming and routing. That could be a great topic if what is meant is mechanisms for mapping from names to routing information and/or forwarding information (network interface, path, nexthop etc.). I would enjoy exploring routing in ICN (information-centric networking). Lixia can explain how NDN has solved the whole problem :-).

So if I understand Lars' intent correctly, he was interested in casting a very wide net at this stage, trying to examine all of the possible avenues of fruitful direction.  Let's not lock ourselves down to one thing yet.  It makes sense to get as broad an overview as we can at this point and see what's most interesting.

At the same time, let's start trying to drive these ideas towards actual content.  Who is doing interesting work today in the various areas?  Who could we invite?  Anyone seen any interesting papers lately?
