          5th ACM Conference on Principles, Systems and
              Applications of IP Telecommunications
                         (IPTComm 2011)
                         August 1-2, 2011
                 Illinois Institute of Technology
                           Chicago, USA

IP communications are evolving rapidly. Telephone and Network service
providers are turning to IP-based solutions for the delivery of voice,
image and video communications. Mobile operators are deploying all-IP
networks replacing the circuit switched technology with packet
switching based solutions.

With the transition towards IP there is also a shift in the way
services are provided. Service-oriented and resource-oriented
architectures have emerged and new methods have been developed to
compose complex services by specifying high level information and
processing flows between simple, basic components. IP communication
services are moving onto cloud computing infrastructures creating new
challenges for high-quality service delivery. In addition to
traditional telephone services, new communications services and
applications that are native to- and optimized for IP networks are
being created. As a result, a large variety of communication services
are being delivered on top of the IP infrastructure, while the amount
of traffic being carried over it is reaching numbers unimaginable just
a few years ago.

The evolution of IP communications is being carried forward by
organizations and individuals representing a diverse set of fields and
backgrounds - telecommunications, web development, electrical and
computer engineering, information technology and data networking. The
aim of the IPTComm conference is to serve as a platform for
researchers from academia, research labs, industry and government to
share their ideas, views, results and experiences in the field of
IP-based telecommunication. IPTComm will include presentations of
theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative systems,
prototyping efforts, case studies, and advancements in technology.

The list of topics for ACM IPTComm includes but is not limited to:

New services and service models

     * Over-the-top services.
     * Social networking and IP communications.
     * Compositional services and model checking.
     * Cloud-based IP communication infrastructures.
     * Virtualization of IP communication services.
     * Rapid application development frameworks.
     * APIs and enablers for IP communication services.
     * Browser-based IP communication services.
     * Context-aware communication services.
     * Peer-to-peer IP communication systems.
     * Telepresence and immersive services.
     * IMS and NGN services.

Management and Resilience

     * Management of IP communications systems and networks.
     * Overload management schemes for IP communications.
     * Log files and log file analysis for IP communication systems.
     * Scalability of large-scale IP communication systems.
     * Traffic and QoS measurement of VoIP traffic.
     * Self-tuning and self-monitoring IP communications systems.
     * Service discovery.
     * Energy consumption and energy management in IP communication
     * Incentives in P2P IP communication systems.
     * Resilience in P2P IP communication system.


     * Identity management for IP communications systems.
     * Anonymity and privacy in IP communications.
     * Forensics and diagnostics in IP communication systems.
     * Techniques to detect, mitigate and prevent SPIT, phreaking and
     * Denial of service detection and prevention.

Mobile IP Communications

     * Mobile IP communication services.
     * Mobility in cloud-based IP communications infrastructure.
     * Mobile P2P IP communication systems.


     * The role of IP communications in the power grid.
     * Open source development in IP communications.
     * Research issues in vertical IP communication markets (e.g.,
       privacy in the medical field, location in logistical field, etc.)
     * Regulatory issues in IP communications.

Papers submission is handled by EDAS (http://edas.info/N10347).

IPTComm solicits both long and short papers. Long papers may be up to
12 pages in length, in two-column ACM conference format (see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). All
submissions must describe original research, not published nor
currently under review for another conference or journal. The program
committee will referee all papers, and accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings. Papers will also be
published in the ACM Digital Library.

Short papers should be between 5 and 6 pages long. The aim of the
short paper category is to help maintain a published record of work
carried out as well as facilitate future affiliations and foster
collaborative work. Short papers are subject to the same rigorous
review process as full papers and follow the same submission process,
schedule and expectation of presentation as the full papers.

Paper submission: Midnight April 27th, 2011.
Notification of acceptance: May 21st, 2011.
Final camera-ready submission: June 30th, 2011.

Proposals for Demonstrations and Technical Talks: Midnight May 8th, 2011
Notification of acceptance: June 6th, 2011.

Conference dates: August 1-2, 2011.

Conference Location: Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, 
Illinois, USA.
