IFIP Networking 2011,
9-13 May, 2011, Valencia, Spain

Web page:http://networking2011.org/

Aim and Scope:

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 computer and communication networks, and to highlight key issues, identify trends and develop visions. The accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published
by Springer, in the Lecture Notes of Computer Science (LNCS) series. 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, anomaly detection, DoS detection and remediation, content distribution, real time (live) content distribution, online social networks, networking aspects in cloud services

-Next Generation Internet:
peer-to-peer networks, virtual and overlay networks, network management and traffic engineering, internet of things, addressing and routing architectures, evolution of IP network architecture and protocols, green
networking (energy and power management), performance measurement, monitoring and traffic analysis, resilient networks (fault tolerance, recovery, self* ), cross-layer design and optimization, mobility (user, device, service, network), content-centric networks, broadband access technologies, resource allocation, switching and routing

-Wireless and Sensor Networks:
ad hoc networks, mobile networks, sensor networks, mesh networks, delay/disruption tolerant networks, opportunistic networks, embedded systems, RFID-based systems

-Network Science:
topology characterization and inference, robustness and vulnerabilities of network infrastructures, emergence properties of real networks, dynamic peer-to-peer network topologies, epidemic spread models, tools and techniques to design and analyze networks, inference and analysis of social networks, community detection and modularity optimization, game theoretic approaches to communications and networks – Important Dates:

Full Paper Submission: December 10, 2010
Acceptance Notification: January 31, 2011
Camera ready due: February 15, 2011 – Guidelines for Submission:

Authors are invited to submit full papers via the EDAS Conference Management System. Only original papers describing previously unpublished, not currently under review by another conference or jounal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development must be submitted.

All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, LNCS published by Springer-Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Papers must be writting in English and should follow the instructions in the Springer template file available in both LaTeX and Microsoft Word format.

The first page should include paper title, an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords indicating the paper topic area and symposium, name and affiliation
of author(s) as well as the corresponding author’s e-mail and postal addresses.
Maximum paper length is 12 printed pages (10-point font). There will be a
Best Paper Award, as well as a number of student travel grants. Organising Committee
