Special Session on Networks & Communication Systems

(NCS 2014)


Jointly with,


Networking and Electronic Commerce Research Conference

(NAEC 2014)


Trieste, Italy, August 21-24, 2014


The Special Session on Networks & Communication Systems (NCS 2014) will be held on August 21-24, 2014, in Trieste, Italy.

Networks & Communication Systems play a significant role in the people's daily life and mainly are based on the flexible and scalable infrastructure of the current Internet technologies. These interdisciplinary fields have undergone significant changes in recent years, such as the evolution to a converged network, the capability to support real-time multimedia services (voice, video, data and future advanced services) while maintaining good performance and satisfactory level of QoS, and the ability to handle smartly, effectively and securely network resources.

This special session is intended to provide a complete coverage in the area of Networks & Communications Systems and to bring together the researchers and industry practitioners to share ideas, challenges, and solutions related to: (i) wired, wireless, mobile and optical technologies, (ii) convergence and next generation networks, (iii) recent advances in the real-time multimedia applications, (iv) traffic analysis and (v) network security; in theoretical and practical aspects.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


·         Wire, Wireless, Mobile and Optical Networks

·         Wireless Mesh Networks

·         Sensor Networks

·         Convergent Networks

·         Next Generation Networks

·         IP Multimedia Subsystem
