Call for Papers

The Eighth International Workshop on Information Network Design

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the Eighth International
Conference on Intelligent Networking and Collaborative Systems (INCoS 2016)

                   September 7 - 9, 2016
     VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic

*** Submission Deadline: April 30, 2016 ***

#Theme and Scope

Nowadays the Internet is playing a role of social and economical
infrastructure and is expected to support not only comfortable
communication and information dissemination but also any kind of
intelligent and collaborative activities in a dependable manner. However,
the explosive growth of its usage with diversifying the communication
technologies and the service applications makes it difficult to manage
efficient sharing of the Internet. In addition, an inconsistency between
Internet technologies and the human society forces a complex and
unpredictable tension among end-users, applications, and ISPs (Internet
Service Providers).

It is thought, therefore, that the Internet is approaching a turning point
and there might be the need for rethinking and redesigning the entire
system composed of the human society, nature, and the Internet. To solve
the problems across multiple layers on a large-scale and complex system and
to design the entire system of systems towards future information networks
for human/social orchestration, a new tide of multi-perspective and
multi-disciplinary research is essential. It will involve not only the
network engineering (network routing, mobile and wireless networks, network
measurement and management, high-speed networks, etc.) and the networked
applications (robotics, distributed computing, human computer interactions,
Kansei information processing, etc.), but the network science (providing
new tools to understand and control the huge-scale complex systems based on
theories, e.g., graph theory, game theory, information theory, learning
theory, statistical physics, etc.) and the social science (enabling safe,
secure, and human-centric application principles and business-models).

The Information Network Design Workshop aims at exploring ongoing efforts
in the theory and application on a wide variety of research fields related
to the design of information networks and resource sharing in the networks.
The workshop provides an opportunity for academic/industry researchers and
professionals to share, exchange, and review recent advances on information
network design research. Original contribution describing recent modeling,
analysis, and experiment on network design research with particular, but
not exclusive, regard to:
- Large scale and/or Complex networks
- Cross layered networks
- Overlay and/or P2P networks
- Sensor and/or Mobile ad-hoc networks
- Delay/disruption tolerant networks
- Social networks
- Applications on networks
- Fundamental theories for network design

#Submission Procedure

Submitted papers should be original and contain contributions of
theoretical, experimental or application nature, or be unique experience
reports. For submitting, go to the INCoS 2016 paper submission site (, follow the
instructions. Submitted papers should be in the IEEE 8.5 two-column format
of up to 6 pages. Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
clarity, and soundness, and will be reviewed by at least two independent


At least one author of an accepted paper has to register and present the
paper at the workshop in order for the paper to be included in the
proceedings of INCoS 2016 conference.
