This paper discusses a framework for a flexible, self-organized control plane for future mobile and ubiquitous networks. The current diversification of control planes requires a manual configuration of network interworking. The problem will increase in the future, with more dynamic topologies and integration of heterogeneous networks in a ubiquitous, reactive environment. In this paper we introduce the concept of network composition, a basic, scalable and dynamic network operation to achieve

We show the architectural components of a generic control plane and its flexible interfaces. With an example on seamless mobility we illustrate how composition can simplify and improve the interworking of future networks.
