10th Communications and Networking Simulation Symposium (CNS'07)

Part of the 2007 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'07)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)
and in cooperation with

March 25 - 29, 2007

Norfolk Marriott Waterside
Norfolk, VA

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 that lead to innovative basic as well as applied research and developments. You are invited to submit full papers reporting 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.

All accepted papers will also be published in the ACM Digital Library.

We welcome papers describing design principles as well as applications pertinent to communications and networks with special emphasis on modeling and simulation. Papers are solicited in the following (but not limited to) area of interests for peer review and presentation in the conference:

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

Best Paper Award

A paper will be selected for the Best Paper Award. The selected paper will be published in a special issue of Modeling & Simulation Magazine.

How to participate
