Call for Papers

Networking 2011 is the 10th event of the series of International Conferences on Networking, sponsored by the IFIP Technical Committee on Communication Systems (TC6). The main objectives of Networking 2011 are to bring together members of the networking community from both academia and industry, to discuss recent advances in the broad and fast-evolving field of telecommunications, and to highlight key issues, identify trends and develop visions.

The accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, LNCS published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Extended versions of selected papers Elsevierwill be considered for possible fast track publication in the Computer Communications Journal (Elsevier)

The conference goals will be pursued through technical sessions as well as keynote talks on hot topics offered by invited experts. The technical sessions will refer to four main areas:

Applications and Services
  • web architectures and protocols
  • middleware support for networking
  • quality of experience
  • pricing and billing
  • authentication, security, trust and privacy
