Advanced International Conference on Telecommunications

AICT 2006

February 19-22, 2006 - Guadeloupe, French Caribbean

Call for Papers

The 2nd Advanced International Conference on Telecommunications (AICT06) continues the AICT05 event held in Lisbon on 2005.

The main track, AICT 2006, covers a variety of challenging telecommunication topics ranging from background fields like signals, traffic, coding, communication basics up to large communication systems and networks, fixed, mobile and integrated, etc. Applications, services, system and network management issues will also receive significant attention.

The second track, SAPIR 2006, covers aspects related to partial and intermittent services (pi-services), i.e., relevant in environments characterized by high volatility and fluctuation of available resources, such as experienced in conjunction with component mobility or ad-hoc networking, where the notion of traditional service guarantees is no longer applicable. P2P, GRID, Clusters, Web Services, Delay Tolerant Networks, Service/Resource identification and localization illustrate aspects where some components and/or services expose features that are neither stable nor fully guaranteed. Examples of technologies exposing similar behavior are WiFi, WiMax, WideBand, UWB, ZigBee, MBWA and others.

The third track on E-learning and mobile learning, ELETE 2006, refers to on-line learning delivered over the World Wide Web via the public Internet or the private, corporate intranet, including mobile learning. It provides an overview of technologies, approaches, and trends that are happening right now. It focuses on the latest trends in e-learning and also on the latest IT technology alternatives that are poised to become mainstream strategies in the near future and will influence the e-learning and mobile learning environments.

The fourth track on teletraffic, TELET 2006, addresses teletraffic modeling and management. It covers traffic theory, traffic control and QoS, performance evaluation methods, network design and optimization of wired and wireless networks, and simulation methodology for communication networks.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. AICT 2006 will offer tutorials, plenary sessions, and panel sessions. The AICT 2006 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and posted on Xplore IEEE system. A best paper award will be granted by the IARIA’s award selection committee. The Advisory Committee will periodically report special events relating to our community.
