Networking Technology and Systems (NeTS): Computer and communication networks are among society's most important infrastructures. Networks are vital to the operation of many sectors of our society -- from financial and manufacturing to education and healthcare -- and they are engines for economic growth. However, with the existing network architecture stressed and reaching the limits of its capabilities, significant innovations are necessary to give rise to new applications and to meet current and future demands on the existing Internet. The Network Technology and Systems Program (NeTS) envisions making significant progress towards realizing a network and communication infrastructure that: Protects users' privacy, as well as computers and devices from malicious attacks and natural disasters, helps hold malicious users accountable for their actions, and is trusted enough to managesociety's other critical infrastructure such as the power grid, banking and others; Bridges the physical and virtual environments through instrumented and managed sensorized physical environments, enabling a new class of science and engineering explorations and provides increased efficiency, safety, and quality of life for individuals and organizations; Supports pervasive computing and builds on current trends of more and more computer and communication devices in our lives; Enables continued innovations and discoveries in science and engineering through access to a global grid of networked instruments, supercomputers, ever-expanding storage capacity, and massive databases and data mining capabilities; and Enables broad innovation of new services, business models, and innovation commons for a wide variety of creative endeavors in all fields. The NeTS program solicitation invites researchproposals in the field of networking and covers all aspects of networking research. It includes research on future end-to-end Internet architectures; sub-network architectures enabled by disruptive technologies such as programmable wireless, mobile wireless, wireless sensors, and optical networks; and strategic research on current Internet including measurement, modeling, and understanding of complex networks. The NeTS program also seeks to develop innovative curricular and educational materials that will help prepare the next generation of networking professionals. Proposers are encouraged to make bold assumptions about the future of networking. Proposals should describe high impact projects that address novel network architectures, protocols and/or technologies. NeTS proposals are solicited in four research areas: I. Programmable Wireless Networks (ProWiN): Funded projects will seek toexploit the capabilities of programmable radios to make more effective use of the frequency spectrum and to improve wireless network connectivity.II. Networking of Sensor Systems (NOSS): Funded projects will seek to create architectures, tools, algorithms and systems that make it easy to assemble and configure networks of sensor systems.III. Networking Broadly Defined (NBD): Funded projects will include a balance of theoretical and experimental research and/or education projects that expand our understanding of large, complex, heterogeneous networks, design of access and core networks based on emerging wireless and optical technologies, and continue the evolution of Internet. IV. Future Internet Design (FIND): Funded projects will seek to design a next-generation Internet which we will call the
