BROADNETS 2009 is an international conference focusing on broadband
communications, networks, and systems and covers the entire gamut of
next generation networks, communications systems, applications and
services. The conference welcomes papers in three tracks, covering
topics (including, but not limited to):

MIMO and OFDM techniques * Modulation and coding schemes * MAC
protocols * Mobility management * Radio resource management * Packet
scheduling algorithms * Routing protocols * Network architecture and
topology design * Hybrid networks * Wireless traffic management *
Cross-layer design and optimization * Wireless QoS * Multihop and
relay networks * Mobile ad hoc networks * Wireless sensor and mesh

WDM transmission technologies and systems * Optical cross-connects
and optical packet and burst switches * Optical packet, burst and
circuit switching networks * Optical access networks - FTTx networks
and systems * Hybrid packet / circuit nodes and architectures * Radio
over fiber based networks * FTTx networks and systems * Optical grids
in access and core * SAN extensions * Multilayer optical networks
(incl. Ethernet, IP, G-MPLS technologies) * Cross-layer design (incl.
application layer dependence) * Reliable optical networking * Optical
networking for green information and communications technology *
Traffic grooming and processing * Modelling and design of optical
networks and systems * Network operations and management * Passive
Optical Networks * Techno-economic aspects of optical networks *
Demonstrations and field-trials.

Routing * Scheduling * Congestion control * Traffic engineering *
Network modeling * Network measurement * Network management * Network
QoS * Network security * Overlay networks * Peer-to-peer networks *
Content distribution networks * Web technologies * Media technologies
(VoIP, IPTV, video streaming) * Location-based services * "Clean-slate"
Internet architectures, algorithms, protocols, and services


Authors are invited to submit full papers of up to 8 pages in
two-column, no less than 10pt font, IEEE conference proceedings format.
Papers should be submitted only in PDF format.

Authors of accepted papers are required to register at regular
registration rates in order for the paper to appear in the conference

Accepted papers will appear on IEEE XPlore.
