Call For Papers


The 38th Annual International Computers, Software & Applications Conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, will be held in Vasteras, Sweden from 21st - 25th July 2014. It is one of the major international forums for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results, advancements, and future trends in computer, software technology, and applications. The 2014 Workshop on Adaptive Systems for Communication Networks (WAS'COM 2014) will be co-located with the main conference.


Internet is continuously increasing in size and complexity. At the very beginning, it has been originally designed for fixed networks, where few agents and services were deployed. With the introduction of mobile and heterogeneous systems (e.g. networks, services), the properties of Internet are no longer adapted to this type of dynamic architectures. Thus, these heterogeneity and mobility properties are becoming an important challenge from a performance and network management point of view. Adaptive techniques for communication networks seem to represent an interesting approach in order to deal with the heterogeneity and mobility of new and future services. The sphere of adaptive systems can be also extended to enhance intelligent system performances by providing new flexible algorithms for communication and network management.

This workshop emphasizes the recent research advances in terms of new protocols, algorithms or services dedicated to communication networks that embrace an adaptive behavior. Research contributions addressing smart mechanisms for the network such as collaborative agents are highly appreciated. Furthermore, such topics could be investigated through a network service or usage point of view. Examples of topics that could be addressed using adaptive techniques are routing or network resource management. More details on topics of interest can be found below.


WAS'COM 2014 aims at soliciting high quality, original and unpublished work in the field of adaptive communication networking. Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):

₋ Adaptive agents (self adaptive, context aware agents, user aware agents, etc)
₋ Trust model, privacy, and security in adaptive agents
₋ Adaptive applications for smart environment
₋ Adaptive virtualization
₋ Adaptive monitoring systems
₋ Fault tolerant adaptive systems
₋ Adaptive topologies in ad hoc wireless networks
₋ Collaborative agents: applications to networking and communication networks
₋ Trade-off between Quality of Service (QoS), security and energy
₋ Cross-layering approaches for network communication optimization
₋ Smooth integration of heterogeneous services
₋ Resource-aware networks, models and architectures
₋ Adaptive network resource sharing and allocation techniques
₋ Adaptive congestion control and scalability issues
₋ Adaptive routing
₋ Adaptive handover (fast handover, vertical handover)
₋ Mobility and traffic models of adaptive systems and environment
₋ Modeling and performance assessment of adaptive protocols and architectures.


Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 6 pages, as per the Paper Guidelines of the main IEEE COMPSAC conference (see for details). Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines in preparing your paper. Each accepted workshop paper is required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors. All papers must be presented in person by one of its authors. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of IEEE COMPSAC 2014, by the IEEE Computer Society Press, and made available online through IEEE eXplore.

NOTE: The submission site for the COMPSAC workshops will open in February 2014 and the link will be made public here in due course. If you have any queries in the meantime, please email the workshop organizers (contact below).


Deadline for paper submission: March 23, 2014
Workshop paper notifications: April 20, 2014
Camera ready copy (registration due): April 28, 2014
