-------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS -----------------
The 2nd IEEE Internacional Workshop of Smart Communication Protocols and Algorithms (IEEE SCPA 2012 - Summer)
June 10-15, 2012, Ottawa, CANADA
In conjunction with IEEE ICC 2012
Selected papers will be invited to the Special Issue on Smart Protocols and Algorithms of the
International Journal Network Protocols and Algorithms (ISSN 1943-3581)
Communication protocols and algorithms are needed to communicate network devices and exchange data
between them. The appearance of new technologies usually comes with a protocol procedure and
communication rules that allows data communication while taking profit of this new technology. Recent
advances in hardware and communication mediums allow proposing new rules, conventions and data
structures which could be used by network devices to communicate across the network. Moreover, devices
with higher processing capacity let us include more complex algorithms that can be used by the network
device to enhance the communication procedure.
Smart communication protocols and algorithms make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine
learning techniques, decision making techniques, knowledge representation, network management,
network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to communicate the network devices to
transfer data between them. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in
order to dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences
of its actions. The algorithms can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to sense
the environment, plan actions according to the input, take consciousness of what is happening in the
environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals
such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be
achieved with smart protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the past and !
use this knowledge to improve futur
In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development,
analysis or optimization of smart communication protocols or algorithms at any communication layer.
Algorithms and protocols based on artificial intelligence techniques for network management, network
monitoring, quality of service enhancement, performance optimization and network secure are included
in the workshop.
We welcome technical papers presenting analytical research, simulations, practical results, position
papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and papers addressing the key problems and
solutions. The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art,
standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.
Topics of interest:
