Call for Papers

The 2005 IEEE International Conference on Networking (ICN 2005) is organized and technically co-sponsored by IEEE/France, IEE, and by the International Academy, Research and Industry Association (IARIA). ICN 2005 is organized by and for academic, research and industrial partners.

We solicit both academic, research , and industrial contributions. ICN 2005 will offer tutorials, plenary sessions, poster sessions, panels, and exhibition opportunities. The ICN 2005 Proceedings will be published by LNCS Springer-Verlag. Best papers will be forwarded for consideration in a special issue of a journal. A best paper award will be granted by the IARIA award selection committee.
