ITC 2009 : 21st International Teletraffic Congress
Conference Series : International Teletraffic Congress
Call For Papers
Deadline Extension: February 15, 2009
21st International Teletraffic Congress (ITC 21)
"Traffic and Performance Issues in Networks of the Future"
15-17 September 2009 - Paris, France
ITC brings together researchers interested in understanding and
improving the way traffic is handled in communication networks.
Under the impulsion of proliferating broadband applications and
the continuous progress of technological advances, we currently
witness a rapid evolution of these networks and the emergence of
new usage models. They call for a continuous reappraisal of
traffic management procedures and mechanisms.
In parallel with the requirement to improve network efficiency and
performance by incremental steps, there is currently considerable
activity worldwide on the design of new architecture principles
and concepts for future networks. How will technological
innovations and content-centric networking impact our ability to
control traffic flow? What architectural elements and business
models are needed to finally meet user expectations for quality
and security of their communications in a cost-effective way? Such
traffic and performance issues related to the networks of the
future are the focus of ITC 21, the next ITC plenary congress that
will take place in Paris in September 2009.
ITC 21 solicits submission of papers with original contributions
relating to traffic and performance issues in computer networks
and communication systems. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, architectural design for traffic efficiency, impact of
advances in wired, wireless, and optical technology, network
planning and operation, traffic measurement and modelling,
performance monitoring, new applications, test bed experiments,
and performance evaluation methodology.
Submission deadline: February 1st, 2009
Acceptance notification: May 1st, 2009
Camera-ready due: June 1st, 2009
Conference: September 15-17, 2009
Submitted papers must be unpublished and currently not under
review for any other publication. All paper submissions will be
handled electronically in EDAS via the ITC 21 submission page.
Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of
their full paper, which must be no longer than 8 double-column
pages in IEEE conference format with font size no smaller than 10

Papers that are not compliant with the requirements may be
declined without review.
All accepted contributions will be full papers with oral
presentations. To guarantee the high visibility of the conference,
the availability of the proceedings through IEEE Xplore is under
discussion with IEEE. Extensions of best papers will be published
in a special issue of an international journal. Please note that
ITC offers a general Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper
Award. The eligible student must be first author and presenter of
