Call For Papers

RNDM 2009

International Workshop on Reliable
Networks Design and Modeling

12-14.10.2009, St. Petersburg, Russia

co-located with
International Conference on Ultra Modern
Telecommunications (ICUMT)

technically sponsored by IEEE

The aim of the RNDM 2009 Workshop is to provide a forum for researchers
from both academia and industry to present high-quality results in the
area of reliable networks design and modeling. We encourage you to submit
full papers describing original, previously unpublished research results,
not currently under review by another conference or journal. All papers
will be reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore
(approved) and indexed in relevant databases. We would be also grateful,
if you could distribute this call for papers among your colleagues.

Extended version of best papers of special merit will be considered for possible
fast track publication in the Computer Communications Journal (Elsevier).

The workshop will be held in St. Petersburg - the meeting point of East
and West. Through its stunning architecture and wonderful art galleries
and museums, among a number of other attractions, the wealth of history of
East and West can be seen and felt in this beautiful city.


Communication networks spanning large areas are subject to frequent
failures, mostly being unintentional. The reasons include natural
disasters, as well as human errors. However, many failures are now often
the result of intentional interruptions, also referred to as malicious
attacks. Network operators thus need their networks to be reliable. One of
the means towards assuring the certain level of service reliability is to
make the networks survivable, i.e. capable of providing the continuous
service in the presence of failures.

The topics cover, but are not necessarily limited to the following:
- wired/wireless network survivability,
- optical networks survivability,
- models and algorithms of survivable networks design and modeling,
- methods for measurement, evaluation, or validation of survivability,
- role of redundancy in survivable networks,
- design of dedicated/shared backup paths, p-cycles and other structures,
- impact of detection accuracy and latency on survivability,
- fast service recovery,
- service resilience differentiation,
- theory and methods of reliability and availability,
- fault management and control in survivable networks,
- multilayer network survivability,
- survivability under traffic grooming in multilayer networks,
- coordination of multilayer survivability operations,
- restoration strategies under different types of failures,
- modeling malicious behaviour or attacks on networks,
- use of self-healing techniques in surviving attacks,
- self-regenerative networks.

Papers must be submitted electronically via EDAS (following the ICUMT 2009
link), or the direct link:
The total length of a paper should not exceed 6 pages formatted
according to the IEEE instructions "Template and Instructions on How to
Create Your Paper (DOC, 92KB)", available at
