This conference will act as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications of computers and communications networks, including wireless and mobile communications. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.All papers submitted to this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

CCN 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

Power and Energy Systems (PES 2005)
Circuits, Signals, and Systems (CSS 2005)

CCN 2005 will be held at the Marina Beach Marriott Hotel. Marina del Rey, the largest man-made marina in the world, is located on the Southern California coastline near the city of Los Angeles. Formally dedicated in 1965, Marina del Rey took over 75 years to be transformed from the Playa del Rey waterway to the thriving and exciting community it is today.

This warm and sun-filled setting offers hotels, more restaurants per square mile than anywhere outside New York City, a small beach, shops, boat launch ramps, sailing, fishing, and whale watching. Explore the quaint Fisherman's Village, stroll in three beautiful public parks, or just relax and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. The lure of nearby Venice Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood, the Getty Museum, UCLA, Rodeo Drive, and many other famous California attractions ensure that visitors are never without something to see and do. Marina del Rey is also the "Headquarters" of the Internet, being the base of operations for Internet governing organizations such as ICANN, IANA, and ISA.
