Call For Papers

IEEE International Workshop on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks (LANMAN)

April 10-12, 2013

Brussels, Belgium

Special Theme of 2013: Seamless Services

IEEE LANMAN 2013 continues the LANMAN tradition as a leading forum for
discussing the latest technical advances in networking in the local
and metropolitan areas, including edge applications. The LANMAN
workshop seeks both theoretical and experimental contributions.
Single-track presentations are planned to stimulate technical exchange
among researchers and practitioners with a broad interest in
networking. We expect the workshop to be a forum for discussion of new
and interdisciplinary ideas on new architectures, paradigms, concepts,
and economic and service models. Novel and speculative ideas are
particularly encouraged. We also encourage studies based on
measurements from real-life networks and testbeds.
Papers are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not limited
to, the following:

Broadband wireless access, including WiMAX, LTE
WiFi: roaming services, architectures, and performance
Metropolitan and residential networks and architectures including
Ethernet in the first mile, EPONs, FTTx, etc.
IPTV, video delivery, and applications
SANs and storage over MANs
IEEE 802 standards
Optical WDM networks based on packet, burst, and flow switching
RFID protocols and performance
Topology adaptation, reconfigurability, routing
Network management related to edge networks
Heterogeneous wireless and ad-hoc networks
Ubiquitous wireless, wired, and remote access
Adaptive wireless networks including cognitive radios
Measurement, modeling, and performance evaluation
Cross-layer QoS, dynamic bandwidth allocation, capacity
Network reliability and survivability
Network security
Pricing, multi-vendor interoperability
LAN-based and MAN-based applications (gaming, distributed computing,
media distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications,
ambient technology, wearable-computing)
Impact of sensors everywhere including homes

IEEE LANMAN 2013 solicits paper submissions of Long Papers (up to 6
pages) and Short Papers (up to 2 pages). The short papers will be
presented in a poster session. Also, some of Long Paper submissions
may be accepted as Short Papers by the TPC. The page limits include
all figures, tables, and references. All papers must be electronically
submitted in PDF according to the guidelines in the workshop
website The proceedings will be published
by IEEE Xplore and will include both Short and Long Papers presented
at the workshop. Best Paper Award will be given to the paper(s) with
the highest technical merit.

All IEEE LANMAN 2013 technical papers and posters must be associated
with an author registration at the full rate. For authors presenting
multiple papers/posters, one full registration is valid for up to
three papers/posters. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a
paper/poster from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from
IEEE Xplore) if the paper/poster is not presented at the workshop.
