Call For Papers

1st International Workshop on Emerging Densely Connected Networks (EDCN
Co-located with CCNC 2011
January 9, 2011, Las Vegas, Nevada U.S.
Submission deadline: Sept. 1st, 2010

General Information:

Recent development of network expands its coverage to home networks,
personal networks, in-vehicle networks, etc. Such networks consist of
context-specific servers, various sensors and a large number of
appliances and equipments. The network resources can become very much
scarce when these networks are interconnected; to make it worse,
emerging applications such as peer-to-peer and streaming applications
are typically oblivious to the complex structure of underlying networks
and can easily abuse the scarce resources. Furthermore, we may face to
energy saving problems. In wireline networks, proposals such as P4P and
ALTO have become well-known potential solutions to addressing similar
challenges; however, these approaches are no longer sufficient to
address the more fundamental technical challenges in densely connected

The goal of this workshop is to provide a dedicated forum and community
for researchers and engineers to share the state-of-the-art innovations
and developments on the emerging densely connected networks. In
particular, the workshop will focus on technical challenges in and
emerging architecture for densely connected networks where a
significantly large number of tethered and mobile devices are connected
and on top of which applications unaware of the complexity of underlying
networks try to compete for the resources in an uncooperative fashion.

Conference Topics:

The workshop seeks submissions in the general areas of networking,
content management, systems and applications that relate to dense
networks. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Network architecture and its evolution of densely connected networks
- Content dissemination via dense connectivity
- Statistics, measurement, and evaluations of application-specific
resource usage
- Cooperative mechanisms via explicit or implicit communications
- Incentive models and dynamics of cooperation
- Demonstration, prototype, deployment of cooperative frameworks
- Performance measurement of cooperative network design
- Network design that encourages cooperation and optimizes resource usage
- Joint optimization for network and applications
- Energy saving in densely connected networks

Guidelines for Submission:

Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently
under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been
previously published. The paper should be used as the basis for a 20 -
30 minute workshop presentation.

Manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard
conference format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column) and not exceed 5 pages in
length. Submission of papers should be regarded as a commitment such
that, if accepted, at least one author of the paper will register and
attend the conference; otherwise it will be removed from the IEEE
Digital Library after the conference.

- Papers should be submitted in a .pdf or .ps format via EDAS paper
submission website
- A separate cover sheet should show the title of the paper, the
author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail,
telephone, and fax) to which the correspondence should be sent.
