Conference Program

Networking 2002 received 314 submissions coming from 42 countries from all five continents: Africa (4), Asia (84), America (63), Europe (158), and Oceania (5). This represents a 50% increase in submissions over the first conference edition thus indicating that Networking is becoming a reference conference for worldwide researchers in the networking community.

With so many papers to choose from, the job of the Technical Program Committee, to provide a conference program of the highest technical excellence, was both was challenging and time consuming. From the 314 submissions, we finally selected 82 full papers for the presentation in the conference technical sessions.

The conference technical program is articulated into three days, and includes, in addition to the 82 refereed contributions, five invited papers from top-level researchers in the networking community, and poster sessions. Thirty-one short papers have been selected for the presentation in the poster sessions.

The conference program also includes a panel session, and three invited talks from worldwide leaders -- Imrich Chlamtac "Managing Optical Networks in the Optical Domain", Randy Katz "The Post-PC Era: It's All About Services", and Gerald Maguire "Personal Computing and Communication". The panel session "Post 9-11 Networking Challenges", organized by Andrew T. Campbell (Columbia University), is devoted to the discussion on how to cope with the vulnerabilities of communications systems revealed by the World Trade Center attack on September 11.
