ADMNET 2013: The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Architecture, Design, Deployment and Management of Networks & Applications

Held in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software & Applications - July 22-26, 2013 - Kyoto, Japan


Goal of the Workshop

The aims of this workshop are to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art, research and development in the area of architecture, design, deployment and management of networks and Internet-based applications. This workshop is also a forum for designers, developers and administrators of the networks and applications. Technology, knowledge and technique are important key elements to solve the issues, and requirements make new technologies. It is intended to bring together researchers from different communities with similar needs, and to provide a base for scientific exchanges of research ideas.

Theme and Scope of the Workshop

The widespread of the Internet has given further opportunities for providing new network services and Web-based applications. However, such services and applications are often accomplished by high complexities and the need for advanced heuristic techniques has become prevalent. On the other hand, the networks of company, campus and community have become an important infrastructure for business, education, research and social activity. These networks have to be robust, reliable, fast, convenient and safe. Developers and administrators of applications and networks are struggling to design and operate system with their heuristic techniques in order to keep and improve the quality and performance. Computer ethics and its education may be an important factor not only to protect security and privacy but to improve the efficiency of system and reduce operating costs. These efforts and issues should be shared and solved among researchers from different communities with similar needs. Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of networks and applications will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome:

• Network Architecture and Design
• QoS, Scalability Solutions
• Fairness, Optimality, and other aspects of Network Resource Sharing
• Network Deployment, Management and Operation
• Network Security (VPN, Authentication, Certification, ISMS, etc.)
• Network Applications (WWW, E-mail, etc.) and their Operation
• Meta-Heuristics and Soft Computing Approaches for Networking Technologies
• Network Metrics, Network Growth and Percolation Models
• Modeling of Users and Network-Based Services
• Digital Convergence
• ITIL, User Policy and Service Level Agreements
• Computer Ethics and Education


Papers must be submitted electronically via the ADMNET 2013 Submission Page.

Follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers:

All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers can be submitted as regular papers (six pages), and the acceptance will depend on reviewer feedback. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2013) by the IEEE CS Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper published in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by an author.
