Dear Colleagues: IPTComm is one of the few conferences dedicated
solely to IP telecommunications.  Please excuse the posting to
this list, but I believe that the conference may be of interest to
many of the list participants.


The Fourth Conference on Principles, Systems and Applications of
IP Telecommunications

August 2 and 3, 2010
Leibniz Supercomputing Center
Munich, Germany

The IP communications domain has matured beyond providing VoIP only
services.  Universtities, enterprises, businesses and individual
consumers routinely use VoIP.  The focus of IP communications is now on
the operations, management, administration and provisioning aspects of
large-scale, reliable and secure communication systems.  To this extent,
the research and standardization work now includes log file analysis,
session tracing across proxy meshes and overload control.  As IP
communications grapples with these issues, newer technologies in the form
of cloud-based IP communication systems; peer-to-peer VoIP networks;
use of IP communications in virtual worlds; social networks and IP
communications are starting to assert a strong presence in the IP
communications domain.

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.

We invite authors to submit papers in the following and related areas:

New services and service models

      * Over-the-top services.
      * Social networking and IP communications.
      * IP telecommunications in virtual worlds.

      * Cloud-based IP communications infrastructure.
      * Rapid application development frameworks.
      * APIs and enablers for IP communication services.
      * Browser-based IP communication services.
      * Context-aware communication services.
      * IMS and NGN services.

      * 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.

IPTComm solicits full papers 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
review for another conference or journal. The program committee will referee
all papers, and accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings. Pending cooperation agreements, papers will also be published
in the ACM Digital Library.

In 2010, IPTComm will be accepting short papers of at least 5 pages and
no more than 6 pages.  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 March 5th, 2010.
Notification of acceptance: May 21st, 2010.
Final camera-ready submission: June 30th, 2010.
Conference dates: August 2-3, 2010.

Conference Location: Leibniz Supercomputing Center, Munich, Germany.
