AIPNGN 2012 : The Second International Workshop on All-IP Next Generation Networks (AIPNGN-2012)
Call For Papers
The Second International Workshop on All-IP Next Generation Networks (AIPNGN-2012), Liverpool, UK, 25-27 June, 2012
To be held in conjunction with the IUCC-2012
The accepted papers from this workshop will be published in the IUCC-12 conference/workshop proceedings by IEEE Computer Society, and will be indexed by EI.
Distinguished selected high-quality papers from the workshop, after further significant extensions, will be recommended for submission and possible publication in the Special Issues of SCI-indexed international journals.
Paper Submission Deadline:21 March, 2012
IP provides a globally successful open infrastructure for the delivery of heterogeneous services and applications for voice, video and text. All-IP wireless and wireline networks could make the next generation networks more robust, scalable, and cost-effective. The evolution of All-IP next generation networks is being carried forward by industry, government, and academia representing a variety of fields and backgrounds – communications and networking, computer engineering, and information technology. With the rapid increases in the service heterogeneity, information volume, and system complexity, new architectures and techniques are required to support the deployment of attractive, reliable and secure All-IP networks. AIPNGN-2012 will bring together computer scientists and engineers in different disciplines to share and exchange their experiences and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of All-IP networks. This workshop is soliciting original and previously unpublished papers addressing research challenges and advances towards the design, implementation and evaluation of All-IP next generation networks.
Topics of particular interests include the following tracks, but are not limited to:
* Content centric networks
* Social networking
* P2P multimedia networks
* Wireless networks and systems
* Mobile computing
* Cloud computing
* Application development frameworks
* APIs for IP communication
* Context-aware services
* IMS and NGN services
* Traffic and QoS measurement of multimedia traffic
* Scalability of large-scale IP networks
* Service discovery
* Security in IP networks
* Resource management
* Energy consumption and energy management
* Mobility, handoff, and location management
* Cross-layer design and optimization
* Performance modeling and evaluation
