Call for Papers
26th International Teletraffic Congress
September 09-11, 2014, Karlskrona, Sweden
"Teletraffic Contributions Towards a Sustainable World"

After years of traffic growth, network over-provisioning policies have shown their limitations. Thus, traffic modeling and analysis have regained an important role to the provisioning of performance models, evaluation methods, monitoring and management approaches that allow for efficient dimensioning of network resources for various network technologies and communication requirements. In fact, such tools are of utmost importance for increased sustainability of communication solutions, which in turn improve the sustainability of environment, society and businesses. The motto of ITC 26 has been chosen with these challenges in mind. Since 1955, ITC has successfully been integrating researchers and practitioners in striving for understanding and mastering network performance issues in an ever-changing landscape of communication technology and services that trigger new demands to accommodate.

ITC 26 is bound to provide significant technological and methodological contributions to create a positive momentum in sustainable service delivery. Specific teletraffic-related topics in network technologies and applications of interest include, but are not limited to:

Network technologies and applications
Future networks design
Green ICT
Network virtualization
