Vincent TOUBIANA I'm a Technologist at ARCEP (the French Telecommunications Regulator) working in the department following innovations and new uses of telecommunications technology. 5G is one of the hot topics that I am following as it is expected to enable new use and services, and I am especially interested to see how 5G will impact devices.

Indeed, I joined Arcep in October (I was previously working for the French Data protection Authority) to work on a report on the influence of the devices on the open internet (available here: https://www.arcep.fr/uploads/tx_gspublication/rapport-terminaux-fev2018-ENG.pdf). As the report mentions, we fear that devices might be the weakest link to the Open Internet. In this report, we pointed that Web standards and especially, those related to the Progressive Web Apps, could help mitigate issues related to user lock-in on platforms.

While I CNIL, one of my assignment was to verify that "Vehicle to X" communication protocols compliant with the French Data Protection Law.

In 2010, I was doing research at Alcatel-Lucent's Bell Labs on "Web of things" and thus studied web standards and the links between web standards and the physical layer. A list of publications is available on Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.fr/citations?hl=en&user=wu4melwAAAAJ

Before that, I graduated from Telecom Paristech where wrote my thesis on secured routing in mobile ad hoc networks.

My key interest for this workshop is linked to our report on the influence of devices on the open internet. Other resources available are:

Ulrich Dropmann I head Nokia Standardization activities globally and regional.

Colin Perkins I'm a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. I study network transport protocols, and in particular transport protocols for interactive multimedia. I co-chair the IETF's RTP Media Congestion Avoidance Techniques (RMCAT) working group, and was previously co-chair of the Audio/Video Transport (AVT) and Multiparty Multimedia Session Control (MMUSIC) working groups. I was instrumental in the development of standards such as RTP and SDP, and more recently edited the WebRTC media transport specification in the IETF.

My current interests include developing the IETF Transport Services API – this work aims to re-imagine the network transport API in the light of many years experience, changes in the network, better understanding of transport services, and new application needs; and to develop a higher-level alternative API that makes it easier to use new transport protocol and network features. With the introduction of new transports, such as QUIC, and new transport services, such as multipath and connection racing, it's becoming increasingly difficult for application developers to make effective use of the network. The transport services work aims to ease this development, and better support emerging and future applications. I further work on the implication of transport protocol security on network management and operations, in particular the implications of QUIC on the network.

Where 5G is going to be needed the most to meet use case demand including leap frogging of 4G by 5G in rural communities where some use cases could otherwise not be realised. E.g. remote medicine and agri tech.
Lars Eggert
Terence Eden Challenges of QUIC - practical steps to take.

Preserving Network Neutrality - creating a level playing field.
Ahmed Elsaywd ElHefnawy what the Features provided by new networking technologies and their applicability to current and future network-intensive Web applications
Father M P Bhagat
Jiayue Zhu new standard in new HTML version, new standard in 3GPP
Stéphane Tuffin Identify if there is an area where improved collaboration between Web applications and Networks should be developed in the scope of Web - Network standardizations
Hélio Pinheiro Dimensioning 5G Networks for supporting existing and future Web technologies
Vincent TOUBIANA The workshop should focus on the impact of 5G on the application layer and anticipate cross layer design. With 5G networks slicing, the application and network layer will be more tied. If we want the web to remain the main platform for service development, we should make sure that Progressive Web Apps will benefit of the same 5G integration than more integrated systems.

Another key outcome would be to have a list of practical of 5G based services that would not only rely on “more bandwidth” but will also take into account other aspect of 5G like low network latency. For instance, in some case, 5G will allow more computation to be run in the cloud.
Andrew Hutton Report on how web standards need to develop in order to make use of new network technologies to support areas such as WebRTC and IoT.
chang liu new technologies imply into the 5G times which we can not do in 4G network
Zhiqiang Yu 1 get an agreement on the typical Web 5G usage scenarios (not just high level, but also high priority specific work )
2. key challenges/requirement on Web 5G usage scenarios from different view of partners (e.g. app developer, network provider, browser vendor, etc)
3. Identify and kickoff some typical Web 5G projects , start from concept discussion to prototype .
Youngsun Ryu - broaden the participation including various area
- sharing their opinions and topics before workshop(maybe this homepage will be helpful for discussion)
- continous activities(i.e. contiuative workshop or new IG), not a one-time event
Xingnan Wang 1 get an agreement on the typical web5g usage scenarios. 2.key challenges/requirement on web5g usage scenarios from different view of partners. 3. identify and kickoff some typical web5g projects, start from concept discussion to prototype.
David Lake Anything discussing 5G as we move towards deployment is interesting for me. Use-cases are vital, as is understanding the micro and macro-economic issues/benefits of the technologies.
Chris Needham Identify new use cases, gaps and requirements for the Web platform in respect to 5G networks
Shawn Hennessey Giving a successful
Richard Bradbury Sorting myth from reality.
Dan Druta I think the main focus of the workshop should be to bring various experts from the operator community and the web on a common understanding on key 5G topics, facilitate some brainstorming on the intersection points and make sure we have a clear path addressing them in the appropriate SDOs.

Dan Druta This initiative will bring the Web and the network operator community closer on topics that will impact the future of the internet for years to come.
Identifying the opportunities as well as the chalenges associated with the deployment of next generation networks relative to the evolution of the Web is going to be a key first step towards the harmonization of these technologies.There are opportunities to adress packaging we applications for edge deployments to hardening the network API exposure to web applications as well as security considerations
I am looking forward to a successful and productive dialogue that will hopefuly result in some specific actions we can take.
