International Conference on
Late Advances in Networks (ICLAN'2007)
December 05-07, 2007, Paris, France


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.

This conference is intended to serve as a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences and research results about all aspects of networks. It will also initiate discussions on how to improve the presented solutions.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
o Ad-hoc networks
o Call admission and congestion control
o Cross-layer architectures
o Heterogeneous networks
o Location based services
o Mobile and wireless networks
o Multicast
o Multimedia QoS and management
o Resource management and QoS for real time traffic support
o RFID and sensor networks
o Routing and switching
o Security techniques and systems
o Service middleware and open interface
o Terrestrial satellite integration
o Traffic management
o Transport protocols
o Ultra-wide band
o WiFi
o WiMax networks
o Wireless mesh networks
o WLAN, WPAN and 3G/4G networks
