The 2nd Workshop on Internet Economics (WIE'11)

On December 1st-2nd (Thu-Fri), 2011 CAIDA and Georgia Tech will host the 2nd interdisciplinary Workshop on Internet Economics (WIE) at the University of California San Diego in La Jolla, CA.

The goal of the WIE workshop series is to bring together researchers, commercial Internet facilities and service providers, technologists, theorists, policy makers, RIR stakeholders, and pundits of Internet economics to try to frame a concrete and useful research agenda for the emerging but stunted field of Internet infrastructure economics.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for this workshop series include the economic drivers and effects of:

  • peering strategies and conflicts
  • Internet content delivery, including video
  • the network neutrality debate
  • Internet access competition, both wired and wireless
  • BGP routing (e.g., how much does deaggregation cost?)
  • IP transit pricing
  • traffic and topology dynamics of the peering ecosystem

We will also pursue in depth discussions on how to improve the realism and utility of Internet interdomain connectivity models for trend analysis and predictions of how the Internet ecosystem will look 5-15 years from now.

Attendees will be asked to submit brief, informal abstracts for presentations, or expressions of interest in moderating a discussion topic or breakout roundtable. Each attendee is expected to actively participate as well as provide input, writing, and/or feedback on the report we'll publish within 6 weeks after the workshop.

Please feel free to send any questions to kc at caida dot org.

Workshop Structure: Talk and Respondents

The workshop will include a few different modes of interaction:

  1. research presentations
  2. short presentations (data source updates
  3. moderated topic discussions (with an opening presentation by the person who proposed that topic, followed by an open discussion)
  4. focus tables at lunch breaks

To support interaction, each research talk will be assigned 3-4 Respondents. The role of a respondent is to follow the talk closely and engage the speaker in a discussion after the end of the presentation. The goal should not be to criticize the talk but to discuss its relevance and potential impact in the real-world. Of course, every workshop participant can contribute in the discussion after each talk.

Workshop Agenda

December 1 (Thursday)

Place: The Village, Building 1, 15th floor, UCSD Campus, La Jolla, CA

Local Arrangements / Getting to UCSD

For this workshop, attendees are expected to make their own hotel reservations and transportation arrangements from their hotels to the workshop. For CAIDA's list of recommended local hotels including shuttle availability, see the Recommended Hotels list (PDF).

The 2nd WIE workshop will be held at the building "The Village at Torrey Pines"'s Building 1, on the 15th floor conference room in the University of California San Diego campus. Attendees will have to make their arrangements to get to and from the site.

The Village is nearest the North Point Drive entrance to UCSD off North Torrey Pines Road. This is the most northwest entrance to UCSD. When you enter from North Point Drive, make the first right hand turn onto Scholars Drive North. The Village is the very first building on the corner.

  • Driving onto campus
    The Interactive UCSD Parking Map is a useful resource for finding parking structures in north campus where The Village at Torrey Pines is located. On this map, The Village Building One is the grey building labeled 531 on the northwest edge of campus.

    Parking Permits: Drive into the small parking lot in front of The Village. From 7:30 until the start of the workshop, our student, Jessica, will be handing out parking permits for the day to WIE participants. She will give you instructions on how to mark the parking permit, as well as provide a map showing parking locations. Park ONLY in green "B" or yellow "S" spaces anywhere on campus with the parking permit that is provided.

    Parking permits for Day 2 will be distributed (by Jessica) at the end of Day 1, just prior to the Reception.

For transportation concerns, general questions and help, contact Darlene Piche at piche at or (858) 534-5109.

General UCSD Maps and general UCSD Visitor Parking information are useful resources for navigating on campus. (For those GPS-enabled attendees, the GPS coordinates of the Village at Torrey Pines Building One is WGS84: 32°53'18.23'N, 117°14'31.92'W)
