The 23rd International Conference on Telecommunications (ICT 2016) will be held in Thessaloniki, a modern metropolis bearing the marks of its stormy history and its cosmopolitan character, known for its hospitality and cuisine.

This year’s theme “Expansion to Small” aims to draw research community’s attention to the enormous anticipated expansion of communication systems through small architectures and devices. Small cells, short wavelengths, small sensors, small scale communications going down to molecular level are expected to boost next generation communications leading to Big Data networking, massive Internet of Things and green, energy efficient applications. Additionally, high quality papers on all aspects of contemporary research and applications of telecommunications are welcome.

The Organizing Committee invites proposals for Workshops/Special Sessions/Tutorials/Demos to be held in ICT 2016. More information can be found in http://ict-2016.org (under “Submissions”).

Submission Guidelines:
Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature for presentation at the conference and publication in the IEEE ICT 2016 Proceedings. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed. The manuscripts must be prepared in English with a maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages (following the standard IEEE 2-column format) without incurring additional page charges (maximum 2 additional pages with over length page charge of USD100 for each page if accepted). Please note that for every accepted contribution, at least one person must register for the conference and present. Accepted papers not presented in the conference will be excluded from the proceedings.

All papers for ICT 2016 should be submitted via EDAS using http://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=21703

Conference Date: June 22-24, 2011

The advances in wireless communication technologies and the proliferation of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people to communicate with each other, interact with
information-processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through
various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of these pervasive and
ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of software technology in various
communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications.

The conference solicits original technical papers, not previously published and not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
– New middleware concepts for mobile devices
– Cross platform application development
– Open terminal and network APIs
– End-to-end architectures for seamless service provisioning and deployment – Integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks and frequency bands – Interworking of mobile applications in mobile cloud environments – QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services – Opportunistic and delay-tolerant mobile and wireless networking – Location-aware and context-aware networking and computing
– Energy-efficient applications and services and OS air interface management – Mobility and handoff management
– Location and tracking supports and services
– Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices – Novel applications and communication protocols
for wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, and home networks – Modeling, simulation, and performance
evaluation of mobile wireless systems and services
– Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems

Accepted papers will be published by
Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the
Institute for Computer Sciences, Social
Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering
(LNICST) series. The proceedings will be
available in both soft and hard copies by Springer.

Selected high-quality papers will be invited to a
Special Issue of a prestigious journal in the
area, probably Springer Mobile Networks and
Applications (MONET) and/or Elsevier Pervasive
and Mobile Computing (PMC) Journals approval pending.
