Call for Workshop Proposals
September 4-7, 2012 – Kraków, Poland
Telecommunications are the major enabler of the Information Society in the 21st Century. Over the years, the International Teletraffic Congress (ITC) has broaden its scope to address a wide spectrum of issues associated with all types of current and future networks ranging from the mathematical theory of traffic processes, stochastic system modeling and analysis, traffic and performance measurements, network management, traffic engineering to network capacity planning and cost optimization, including network economics and reliability. These issues are addressed by applying a variety of tools from different fields, such as Stochastic Processes, Information theory, Control theory, Signal and Processing, Game theory and Optimization techniques, Statistical methodologies and Artificial Intelligence techniques, and so on. The general goal of ITC remains to bring researchers and practitioners together towards operational understanding of all types of current and future networks, guaranteeing a well-balanced contribution from theory, application, and practice.
The scope of the ITC is broadening as its target of the networked systems is expanding: the various types of fixed and/or mobile networks such as future Internet, the next-generation of mobile networks including LTE/LTE-advanced networks and self-organizing networks, emerging data-center networks, etc.
The purpose of the ITC 2012 workshops is to provide participants with an international forum and opportunity to discuss novel research ideas and challenges in such a wide range of networked systems. The workshop could be organized by putting the focus on either a target networked system or a set of tools applied to the networked system. The target audience of such issues is experts from research organizations, universities, equipment vendors and suppliers, network operators, service providers, system integrators and international technical organizations, guaranteeing a well-balanced contribution from theory, application, and practice.
Experts interested in organizing workshops are invited to submit proposals following the guidelines.
