    IPTComm 2010: Call for Papers

      ****** NOTE: Submissions due on Mar 5, 2010 *******

      IPTCOMM 2010

      The Fourth Conference on Principles, Systems and Applications of
      IP Telecommunications

      August 2 and 3, 2010
      Leibniz Supercomputing Center
      Munich, Germany

      The IP communications domain has matured beyond providing VoIP only
      services. Universities, enterprises, businesses and individual
      consumers routinely use VoIP. The focus of IP communications is now on
      the operations, management, administration and provisioning aspects of
      large-scale, reliable and secure communication systems. To this extent,
      the research and standardization work now includes log file analysis,
      session tracing across proxy meshes and overload control. As IP
      communications grapples with these issues, newer technologies in the
      form of cloud-based IP communication systems; peer-to-peer VoIP
      networks; use of IP communications in virtual worlds; social
      networks and IP communications are starting to assert a strong
      presence in the IP communications domain.

      The aim of the IPTComm conference is to serve as a platform for
      researchers from academia, research labs, industry and government to
      share their ideas, views, results and experiences in the field of
      IP-based telecommunication. IPTComm will include presentations of
      theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative systems,
      prototyping efforts, case studies, and advancements in technology.

      We invite authors to submit papers in the following and related areas:

      * Anonymity and privacy in IP communications.
      * Forensics and diagnostics in IP communication systems.
      * Techniques to detect, mitigate and prevent SPIT, phreaking
      and vishing.
      * Denial of service detection and prevention.

      Mobile IP Communications

      * Mobile IP communication services.
      * Mobility in cloud-based IP communications infrastructure.
      * Mobile P2P IP communication systems.


      * The role of IP communications in the power grid.
      * Open source development in IP communications.
      * Research issues in vertical IP communication markets (e.g.,
      privacy in the medical field, location in logistical
      field, etc.)
      * Regulatory issues in IP communications.

      Papers submission is handled by EDAS (http://edas.info/N8459).

      IPTComm solicits full papers up to 12 pages in length, in two-column
      ACM conference format
      (see http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). All
      submissions must describe original research, not published nor
      currently under review for another conference or journal. The program
      committee will referee all papers, and accepted papers will be
      published in the conference proceedings. Pending cooperation agreements,
      papers will also be published in the ACM Digital Library.

      In 2010, IPTComm will be accepting short papers of at least 5 pages and
      no more than 6 pages. The aim of the short paper category is to help
      maintain a published record of work carried out as well as facilitate
      future affiliations and foster collaborative work. Short papers are
      subject to the same rigorous review process as full papers and follow
      the same submission process, schedule and expectation of presentation as
      the full papers.

      Paper submission: Midnight March 5th, 2010.
      Notification of acceptance: May 21st, 2010.
      Final camera-ready submission: June 30th, 2010.
      Conference dates: August 2-3, 2010.
