INTERNET 2009 : The First International Conference on Evolving Internet
Call For Papers
Originally designed in the spirit of interchange between scientists, Internet reached a status where large-scale technical limitations impose rethinking its fundamentals. This refers to design aspects (flexibility, scalability, etc.), technical aspects (networking, routing, traffic, address limitation, etc), as well as economics (new business models, cost sharing, ownership, etc.). Evolving Internet poses architectural, design, and deployment challenges in terms of performance prediction, monitoring and control, admission control, extendibility, stability, resilience, delay-tolerance, and interworking with the existing infrastructures or with specialized networks.
The inaugural conference INTERNET 2009 deals with challenges raised by evolving Internet making use of the progress in different advanced mechanisms and theoretical foundations. The gap analysis aims at mechanisms and features concerning the Internet itself, as well as special applications for software defined radio networks, wireless networks, sensor networks, or Internet data streaming and mining.
While many attempts are done and scientific events are scheduled to deal with rethinking the Internet architecture, communication protocols, and its flexibility, the current series of events starting with INTERNET 2009 is targeting network calculi and supporting mechanisms for these challenging issues.
We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions on topics regarding new views on Internet protocols, Internet extendibility, new architectures and tradeoffs. INTERNET 2009 will offer tutorials, plenary sessions, and panel sessions. The INTERNET 2009 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and posted on Xplore IEEE system. A best paper award will be granted by the IARIA's award selection committee.
The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, implementations, running experiments and applications. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers with new ideas, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas:

Contributors are invited to submit up to four-page papers, following the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics.
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference's CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to email@example.com.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. They should be about three hours long. One page with the title, tutorial summary, and a short bio are expected. Please send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies.
