Originally designed in the spirit of interchange between scientists, Internet reached a status where large-scale technical limitations impose rethinking its fundamentals. This refers to design aspects (flexibility, scalability, etc.), technical aspects (networking, routing, traffic, address limitation, etc), as well as economics (new business models, cost sharing, ownership, etc.). Evolving Internet poses architectural, design, and deployment challenges in terms of performance prediction, monitoring and control, admission control, extendibility, stability, resilience, delay-tolerance, and interworking with the existing infrastructures or with specialized networks.
The inaugural conference INTERNET 2009 deals with challenges raised by evolving Internet making use of the progress in different advanced mechanisms and theoretical foundations. The gap analysis aims at mechanisms and features concerning the Internet itself, as well as special applications for software defined radio networks, wireless networks, sensor networks, or Internet data streaming and mining.
While many attempts are done and scientific events are scheduled to deal with rethinking the Internet architecture, communication protocols, and its flexibility, the current series of events starting with INTERNET 2009 is targeting network calculi and supporting mechanisms for these challenging issues.
We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions on topics regarding new views on Internet protocols, Internet extendibility, new architectures and tradeoffs. INTERNET 2009 will offer tutorials, plenary sessions, and panel sessions. The INTERNET 2009 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 topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas. All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions.
Advanced Internet mechanisms
Access: call admission control vs. QoE vs. structural QoS / capability-based access control vs. role-based access control vs. attribute-based access control
Graph theory/topology/routing Internet support
Information theory: distributed network coding, Shannon's entropy, Nash equilibrium
Internet security mechanisms
Cryptography: design and analysis of cryptographic algorithms, applied cryptography, cryptographic protocols and functions
Internet trust, security, and dependability levels
Network and transport level security
Performance degradation and anomaly detection mechanisms
Buffer sizing, majorization, QoS routing, finite buffer queue vs. infinite buffer queue and performance
Internet monitoring and control
Internet and wireless
Capacity of wireless networks
Internet and data streaming/mining algorithms
Mathematics for clustering massive data streams
Internet and sensor-oriented networks/algorithms
Optimal sensor placement
Future Internet architecture and design
INSTRUCTION FOR THE AUTHORS
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.
Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via an automated system.
Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.
Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.
Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the Conference Publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.
Posters are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "POSTER : Poster Forum". Submissions are expected to be 6-8 slide deck. Posters will not be published in the Proceedings. One poster with all the slides together should be used for discussions. Presenters will be allocated a space where they can display the slides and discuss in an informal manner. The poster slide decks will be posted on the IARIA site.
For more details, see the Poster Forum explanation page.
Work in Progress
Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "WIP: Work in Progress". Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts. Contributors must follow the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics. The work will be published in the conference proceedings.
For more details, see the Work in Progress explanation page
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will not be published in the conference’s CD Proceedings. Presentations' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for three hour tutorials. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). The tutorials' slide decks will be posted on the IARIA's site. Please send your proposals to email@example.com
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. The panel's slide deck will be posted on the IARIA's site.
For more information, firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome workshop proposals on issues complementary to the topics of this conference. Your requests should be forwarded to email@example.com.
