The spectrum of 21st Century telecommunications is marked by the arrival
of new business models, new platforms, new architectures and new customer
profiles. Next generation networks, IP multimedia systems, IPTV, and
converging network and services are new telecommunications paradigms.
Technology achievements in terms of co-existence of IPv4 and IPv6,
multiple access technologies,  IP-MPLS network design driven methods,
multicast and high speed require innovative approaches to design and
develop large scale telecommunications networks.

Mobile and wireless communications add profit to large spectrum of
technologies and services. We witness the evolution 2G, 2.5G, 3G and
beyond, personal communications, cellular and ad hoc networks, as well as
multimedia communications.

Web Services add a new dimension to telecommunications, where aspects of
speed, security, trust, performance, resilience, and robustness are
particularly salient. This requires new service delivery platforms,
intelligent network theory, new telecommunications software tools, new
communications protocols and standards.

AICT 2007 covers a variety of challenging telecommunication topics ranging
from background fields like signals, traffic, coding, communication basics
up to large communication systems and networks, fixed, mobile and
integrated, etc. Applications, services, system and network management
issues will also receive significant attention.

We solicit research and industrial contributions. AICT 2007 will offer
tutorials, plenary sessions, and panel sessions. The AICT 2007 Proceedings
will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and posted on IEEE Xplore
Digital Library.
