CNS12 Call for Papers | Spring Simulation MultiConference (SpringSim12)

CNS'12 of SpringSim'12 (in cooperation with ACM SIGSI)M Call for Papers:

15th Communications and Networking Simulation (CNS'12) Symposium

March 26 - 29, 2012

Florida Hotel and Conference Center; Orlando, FL, USA

Communications and networking are the heart and the nervous system of information technology - a technology that is profoundly affecting our daily lives. Users and URLs relate with one another in the complicated network configurations, particularly on Web2.0 social-networking sites, due in part to the proliferation of web pages, web sites and hyperlinks. This complexity makes modeling and simulation of networks a challenging task. Recently, principles of soft computing, such as fuzzy logic and evolutionary computing have been used for Internet and network analysis. Furthermore, Internet concepts such as cloud computing have moved from a vision for the future to the present, and become the new "hot" research topic. You are invited to submit full papers reporting original work to a forum where experts from industry and academia meet and exchange ideas on these 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. Papers are solicited in the following (but not limited to) area of interests for peer review and presentation in the conference:

  • Cloud Computing
  • Using Fuzzy Logic for Web/Network Modeling and Analysis
  • Soft Computing for Web Information Retrieval and Processing
  • Web-Based Simulation and Applications
  • Web2.0 Social Networking
  • Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Web
  • Information Retrieval and Search Engines (Web and Semantic Web)
  • Web Workload Characterization
  • Web Recommendation Systems
  • Sensor Networks
  • Network Security and Management
  • Network Design and Performance Analysis
  • Wireless Communications and Mobile Networks
  • Traffic Engineering and Measurements
  • Clusters and Grid Computing & Communications
  • Network Centric Defense Application
  • Network Centric Virtual Environments
  • Virtual Environments for Training
  • Peer-to-Peer Communications and Ubiquitous Computing
  • Middleware and Distributed Systems
  • 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

Tutorials and Workshops

Proposals are also invited for tutorials and workshops on all symposia-related topics to be presented at CNS'12.The proposals should include the tutorial or workshop objectives, a brief description (500 words), an outline, proposed length (one-hour, two-hour, or four-hour) and a one-page professional resume of the instructor. Tutorial and workshop presentation materials (in PDF or MS PowerPoint format) and handouts (in PDF, MS Word or MS PowerPoint format) are due by the camera ready due date. For submissions and additional information regarding tutorials and workshops, please contact the Chairs.
