Dear Colleagues:

Please find below the Call for papers for IDCS'08 with IEEE ICCIT 2008 (Submission deadline: August 10, 2008).
Please be informed that IDCS'08 papers will be included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and "selected" papers will be invited to extend for possible publication in a Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering volume "Internet and Distributed Computing Systems", published by Springer-Verlag, Germany. Please consider submitting a paper in IDCS'08.

Best Regards,

                   CALL FOR PAPERS
IEEE International Workshop on Internet and Distributed Computing Systems (IDCS'08)
In conjunction with
11th IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology (ICCIT 2008)
December 25-27, 2008, Khulna, Bangladesh
In the recent years, the emergence of Web as a ubiquitous platform for innovations has laid the foundation for the rapid growth of the Internet. The use of mobile and wireless devices such as PDA, laptop, and cell phones for accessing the Internet has paved the ways for related technologies to flourish through recent developments. In addition, the popularity of sensor networks is promoting better integration of the digital world with physical environment. In this workshop we are interested in receiving innovative papers on emerging technologies related to Internet and distributed systems to support the effective design and efficient implementation of high-performance computer networks. The target audience includes researchers and industry practitioners those are interested in different aspects of the Internet and distributed systems, with a particular focus on the practical experiences with the design and implementation of related technologies as well as their theoretical perspectives.
Areas of interest
The areas of interest are the following (although this list should not be treated as exclusive):
* Advances in Internet architectures and protocols
* Autonomic computing
* Computational economy for distributed systems
* Content delivery networks
* Distributed database systems
* Experimental and measurement results from live networks
* Foundations, theory, modelling of Internet-based systems
* Grid computing
* Interconnection networks and collaborative systems
* Internet-based knowledge engineering
* Internet search technologies
* Network-based applications (VoIP, streaming)
* Network management and traffic engineering
* Peer-to-peer (P2P) and overlay networks
* Resource management, QoS and signaling
* Security in communication networks
* Sensor networks and applications
* Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based systems
* Systems design, scalability, reliability and mobility
* Tools and techniques for network measurements
* Wireless, mobile, ad-hoc and vehicular networks
