The IEEE LCN conference is the premier conference on the leading edge of theoretical and practical aspects of computer networking. LCN is a highly interactive conference that enables an effective interchange of results and ideas among researchers, users, and product developers. During 34 years of this conference, major developments from high-speed local networks to the global Internet to specialized sensor networks have been reported at this conference. We encourage you to submit original papers describing research results or practical solutions in leading edge topics. Paper topics include, but are not limited to:

Ad hoc and sensor networks Adaptive applications
Embedded networks Authentication, authorization, accounting
High-speed access networks Congestion and flow control
Home and SOHO networks Cross-layer optimization
IPv6 deployment & migration Location-dependent services
Local area networks Mobility management
Optical networks Multimedia and real-time communication
Green networking Network management
Peer-to-peer networks Network reliability and security
Personal and wearable networks Network traffic characterization Storage area networks Performance evaluation/engineering
Ubiquitous networking Performance measurement and tuning
Wireless networks Quality-of-Service provisioning

Authors are invited to submit full or short papers for presentation at the conference. Full papers (no more than 8 camera-ready pages, 10 pt font in IEEE format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results and are limited to 4 camera-ready pages in length. Short papers will be presented in a poster format and are published in the proceedings. All papers must include title, complete contact information for all authors, abstract, and keywords on the cover page.
