Communications and networking embody the heart and the nerve system of the information technology. A technology that is profoundly affecting our daily lives. Experts, researchers, managers, and entrepreneurs in this dynamic field often encounter challenges that lead to innovative basic as well as applied research and developments. You are invited to submit full papers reporting original work to a forum where experts from industry and academia meet and exchange ideas on the topics. This international forum provides a bridge between the communications industry and academic research laboratories.

We welcome papers describing design principles as well as applications pertinent to communications and networks with special emphasis on modeling and simulation. Papers are solicited in the following (but not limited to) area of interests for peer review and presentation in the conference:

Network Security and Management
Network Design and Performance Analysis
Wireless Communications and Mobile Networks
Traffic Engineering and Measurements
Clusters and Grid Computing & Communications
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Systems
Application of High Level Architecture for Networking Industry
Network Centric Defense Application
Network Centric Virtual Environments
Virtual Environments for Training
Web-Based Simulation and Applications
Peer-to-Peer Communications and Computations
Dynamic Data Driven and Sensor Networks
Data Communications and Protocols
Ad Hoc Networks and Applications
Large Scale Networks
Load Balancing and Congestion Control
Simulation Tools for Communications and Networks
Internet and Mobile QoS Architectures
Modeling Techniques, Verification and Validation

Best Paper Award
A paper will be selected for the Best Paper Award. The selected paper will be published in a special issue of Modeling & Simulation Magazine.

Tutorials and Workshops

* Proposals are also invited for tutorials and workshops to be presented at CNS 09. The proposal should include the tutorial or workshop objectives, a brief description (500 words), an outline, proposed length (one-hour, two-hour, or four-hour) and, a short professional resume of the instructor. Key dates are the same as paper submission dates.
Tutorial and workshop presentation materials (in PDF or MS PowerPoint format) and handouts (in PDF, MS Word or MS PowerPoint format) are due by the camera ready due date.
For submissions and additional information regarding tutorials and workshops, please contact the Chairs

Paper Submission

Original papers should be submitted to the SCS Conference Proceedings Management System

All papers must include the authors' affiliation and e-mail addresses of all authors. The e-mail addresses should be related to the authors' institutions and not public portals. Paper formatting instructions and copyright form are available at

All papers will be fully refereed for accuracy, technical content, and relevance. Papers should be NO longer than 8 single-spaced double-column pages. At least one author must pre-register for the conference, paying the full registration fee, in order to have their paper included in the CD.

Accepted papers will appear in the ACM digital library.

Contact the Chairs with any questions concerning the paper submission and review process, or questions regarding the relevance of a paper to the conference.
