The disparity between the capacity of a single wavelength and the applications' bandwidth requirement has recently brought the field of traffic grooming in WDM networks under the spotlight. Starting with the consideration of regular topologies and specific static traffic patterns, this area has seen many advances in just the last few years.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum where new results in traffic grooming can be presented. Moreover, the workshop will be a vehicle for identifying future research directions of this fast emerging field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Routing, wavelength assignment and connection provisioning for traffic grooming
Admission strategies
Network planning for traffic grooming
Dynamic traffic grooming
Traffic grooming with fault tolerance considerations
Multicast traffic grooming
Traffic grooming in MPLS/GMPLS networks
Traffic grooming with QoS considerations
Optimal and heuristic solutions
Bounds and limits
Performance evaluation
Design and evaluation of electronic equipment for traffic grooming
Economic and business aspects of traffic grooming
