Communications and Networks are the heart and the nerve system of Information Technology which profoundly affecting our daily lives. Web 2.0, social networks, mobile devices, smart cell phones, advances in Cloud Computing, and other disruptive technologies are continuing to dominate our communication spectrums. We are witnessing exploding growth in services generated by the networking community to all users; public or private, military or government, educational or industry, healthcare or finance, scientific or entertainment. Quality of service, Security, Interoperability, fast access, and many other important user requirements can be studied, monitored, and predicted by using simulation techniques.

The 16th Communications and Networking Symposium (CNS'13) invites experts, researchers, developers, managers, and entrepreneurs in this dynamic field to publish and share their findings with their peers in this symposium and discuss the challenges and successes in their pursuit of advancing their focused areas.

We welcome papers describing design principles as well as applications pertinent to the above tracts with special emphasis on modeling and simulation of communications and networks.
