Call for Papers – International Teletraffic Congress (ITC 28)

ITC-28 Conference
September 12-16, 2016
Würzburg, Germany

The evolution of communications and networking is changing the world we 
are living in. The digital connected world is triggered by the influence 
of computer science on telecommunication, the advent of the Internet and 
the massive deployment of mobile communications and optics, the 
appearance of collaborative networking and social networks, the 
ever-increasing speed and flexibility of new communication technologies, 
networks, user devices, and applications, and the ever-changing 
operational challenges arising from this development.

ITC is the first international conference in networking science & 
practice. It gathers a wide and lively community of researchers and 
practitioners dedicated to pushing forward the boundary of knowledge in 
the area of networking. As such, ITC has provided a forum for leading 
researchers from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest 
changes and developments in design, modelling, measurement, and 
performance evaluation of communication systems, networks, and services.

ITC 28 continues this tradition and solicits original contributions that 
address novel technologies or propose innovative models and techniques. 
ITC 28 is structured into eight different areas. The objectives in these 
areas include, among others, energy-efficiency and green IT, network 
security and privacy, QoS and QoE, and resilience. More details on the 
areas and the list of topics can be found online at

Area 1: Smart cities and IoT (Alberto Leon-Garcia, Yanmin Zhu)
Area 2: Cloud services and networking (Arup Acharya, Patrick Lee)
Area 3: Mobile, wireless and 5G (Kin Leung, Thomas Hou)
Area 4: Next generation and future Internet architectures (Michael Zink, 
Thomas Zinner)
Area 5: Network and traffic management (Florin Ciucu, Peter Reichl)
Area 6: Network planning and optimization (Thomas Bauschert, Eric Wong)
Area 7: Network measurements and analysis (Marco Mellia, Mark Squillante)
Area 8: Networked applications (Zhu Li, Lea Skorin-Kapov)

In addition, there will be a demo session across the areas.
