The rapid deployment of network infrastructures in various environments triggers new applications and services that in turn generate new constraints. For example, future heterogeneous networks will integrate ad hoc and sensor solutions into wired and/or wireless fixed infrastructures. The integration of ad hoc and sensor networks together with the Internet and wireless infrastructure networks increases the network capacity, the coverage area and application domains. The interconnection of these networks must not only ensure the transport traffic between a source and a destination. However, this interconnection must keep on providing a very high quality of service and make various flows safe and secure. Carrying out these challenges requires the modification and/or the adaptation of some protocols.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

o Ad-hoc, WiFi and WiMax networks
o Call admission and congestion control
o Cross-layer architectures
o Heterogeneous networks
o Mesh networks
o Mobile and wireless networks
o Multicast
o Multimedia QoS and management
o Quality of service
o RFID and sensor networks
o Routing and switching
o Security
o Service middleware and open interface
o Terrestrial satellite integration
o Traffic management
o Transport protocols
o Voice and video over IP
o WLAN, WPAN and 3G/4G networks
