National Research Council, Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, Committee on Research Horizons in Networking, Looking Over the Fence at Networks: A Neighbor's View of Networking Research (2001) (full-text).
The report is organized around the three major themes — measuring, modeling, and creating and deploying disruptive prototypes. The issues raised in this report, which reflect in large part the concerns of the outsiders, would certainly require further consideration by the network research community to be translated into an actual research agenda that would help meet the needs of network users. For example, while outsiders bring a valuable fresh perspective, they can also miss obstacles that insiders see. The intent of this report is to stimulate such an examination.
