Communications and networking embody the heart and the nerve system of the information technology - a technology that is profoundly affecting our daily lives. Experts, researchers, managers, and entrepreneurs in this dynamic field often encounter challenges which lead to innovative basic and applied research and developments. CNS 2006 invites you to submit your original work to a forum where experts from industry and academia meet and exchange ideas on the topics. This international forum provides a bridge between the communications industry and academic research laboratories. We welcome papers describing design principles as well as applications pertinent to communications and networks with special emphasis on modeling and simulation. CNS'06 is soliciting papers in the following (but not limited to) area of interests for peer review and presentation in the conference:

Network Security and Management
Network Design and Performance Analysis
Wireless Communications and Mobile Networks
Traffic Engineering and Measurements
Clusters and Grid Computing & Communications
Distributed Simulation and Real Time Systems
Application of High Level Architecture for Networking Industry
Network Centric Defense Application
Network Centric Virtual Environments
Virtual Environments for Training
Web-Based Simulation and Applications
Peer-to-Peer Communications and Computations
Dynamic Data Driven and Sensor Networks
Data Communications and Protocols
Ad Hoc Networks and Applications
Large Scale Networks
Load Balancing and Congestion Control
Simulation Tools for Communications and Networks
Internet and Mobile QoS Architectures
Modeling Techniques, Verification and Validation
