Special Issue on “Enabling Nano-Networking via Molecular Communications for Transactions for
Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (Wiley)
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/store/10.1002/(ISSN)2161-3915/asset/homepages/ETT_SI_Proposal_Molecular_Communications.pdf?v=1&s=56cad2f02df3e2c9fd14ba4504be321666045ee7&isAguDoi=false

Call for Papers (Extended Paper Submission Deadline: June 20, 2016)

Molecular communications has been heralded as a new and promising nanoscale communication paradigm that
bolsters effective and efficient information sharing between nano-machines in fluid environments.
The basic principle of conveying information in this paradigm is that transmitter nano-machines encode
the information into molecules and release them into the medium. Then the information-carrying
molecules propagate until they arrive at and are detected by receiver nano-machines. Due to its
potential biocompatibility and low energy consumption, molecular communications is an ideal choice
for the health-, industry- and environment-related applications of nano-networks, especially for
those where the use of conventional electromagnetic communications is inefficient and impractical.
Some envi
 saged applications are drug delivery systems, bio-hybrid implants, and lab-on-a-chip systems.

The aim of this special issue is to publish high-quality overview, tutorial, and technical articles on
molecular communications, with a special emphasis on the new theories, designs and analysis of
molecular communication systems that are developed from the perspective of signal processing and
communications theory. The proposed special issue gathers state-of-the-art contributions that can
provide a timely and comprehensive overview of the current research and development of molecular
communications, as well as the challenges and opportunities for the practical implementation of
molecular communications in current and future nano-networks.

CALL FOR PAPERS

[Scope]

Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e.,
transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been
identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen
as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources provided that
appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also
contribute to CO2 emission through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement
of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the operation expenditure or energy
consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This conference will
explore and expl
 ain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreeNets. In this regard, the
conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse f!
 ields including green mobile networ
ks, system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and
prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application
issues related to GreeNets.

[Technical Errata Reported] RFC6726 (3870)

The following errata report has been submitted for RFC6726,
"FLUTE - File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport".

--------------------------------------
You may review the report below and at:
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=6726&eid=3870

--------------------------------------
Type: Technical
Reported by: Thomas Stockhammer <stockhammer <at> nomor.de>

Section: 11.1

Original Text
-------------
Incremented the FLUTE protocol version from 1 to 2, due to concerns
   about backwards compatibility.  For instance, the LCT header changed
   between RFC 3451 and [RFC5651].  In RFC 3451, the T and R fields of
   the LCT header indicate the presence of Sender Current Time and
   Expected Residual Time, respectively.  In [RFC5651], these fields
   MUST be set to zero and MUST be ignored by receivers (instead, the
   EXT_TIME Header Extensions can convey this information if needed).
   Thus, [RFC5651] is not backwards compatible with RFC 3451, even
   though both use LCT version 1.  FLUTE version 1 as specified in
   [RFC3926] MUST use RFC 3451.  FLUTE version 2 as specified in this
   document MUST use [RFC5651].  Therefore, an implementation that
   relies on [RFC3926] and RFC 3451 will not be backwards compatible
   with FLUTE as specified in this document.

WG Action: Conclusion of Reliable Multicast Transport (rmt)

The Reliable Multicast Transport (rmt) working group in the Transport 
Area has concluded after having completed most of its chartered work. 
The IESG contact persons are Spencer Dawkins and Martin Stiemerling.

There are two milestones that have not been completed:

- Submit FLUTE SDP document for publication
- Submit RMT Security documents for publication

The RMT mailing list (rmt <at> ietf.org) will remain open in order to
enable continued discussion among people that are implementing or
using protocols developed by the RMT working group.

Thanks to the RMT participants and the chairs!

Last Call: <draft-ietf-rmt-sec-discussion-08.txt> (Security and Reliable Multicast Transport Protocols: Discussions and Guidelines) to Informational RFC


The IESG has received a request from the Reliable Multicast Transport WG
(rmt) to consider the following document:
- 'Security and Reliable Multicast Transport Protocols: Discussions and
   Guidelines'
  <draft-ietf-rmt-sec-discussion-08.txt> as Informational RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf <at> ietf.org mailing lists by 2013-06-20. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg <at> ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract

   This document describes general security considerations for Reliable
   Multicast Transport (RMT) building blocks and protocols.  An emphasis
   is placed on risks that might be resolved in the scope of transport
   protocol design.  However, relevant security issues related to IP
   Multicast control-plane and other concerns not strictly within the
   scope of reliable transport protocol design are also discussed.  The
   document also begins an exploration of approaches that could be
   embraced to mitigate these risks.  The purpose of this document is to
   provide a consolidated security discussion and provide a basis for
   further discussions and potential resolution of any significant
   security issues that may exist in the current set of RMT standards.

Change in RMT chair position

Dear all,

Here is an update about the change in the RMT chair position for your 
information.

Lorenzo Vicisano stepped down as co-chair of the RMT WG on my request.
The RMT is approaching its end of lifetime and one chair seems to be 
sufficient to handle the WG.

Let me thank Lorenzo Vicisano for his long-time contribution to the RMT WG!

   Martin
