ITC 30 in Vienna: Teletraffic in a Smart World
The International Teletraffic Congress ITC 30, to be held September 4-7, 2018, at the University of Vienna, Austria, is the 30th edition of this international flagship congress in the field of networking science and practice. ITC was founded back in 1955 by enthusiastic scientists and engineers who were willing to deploy networks in a holistic way. Since then, it has established a multi-decade tradition as the primary forum for presenting and discussing the latest technical advances in the broad areas of teletraffic models, network systems, and measurements.
ITC 30 focuses on the future smart world and how to build it using recent advances in networking science & practice, including key challenges arising from the upcoming interconnection of massive numbers of devices, sensors and humans. For ITC 30, cutting-edge papers spanning both theory and experimentation are solicited in all areas of networking, ranging from traffic engineering and control with application also to emerging softwarized/virtualized network paradigms, up to innovative wireless scenarios brought about by the emergence of 5G and IoT systems. We especially encourage original contributions which bridge the gap between performance modeling and real-life operational aspects, including works which leverage measurement data to provide a better understanding of the wired and wireless networks’ operation under realistic conditions.
We are happy to announce the keynote by Debasis Mitra on "An Engineer’s Perspective on Some Societal Problems". As one of the highlights of ITC 30, the ITC 30 Networking Science Vision Day will be organized on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, presenting several top experts from the networking community who will present their views and visions on the future smart world and the role of networking research in it: Networking Science - Where Are We Heading To?.
ITC 30 is specifically organized into four (partially overlapping) areas.
Area 1: Performance Evaluation, Control and Optimization
Chairs: Sem Borst (TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Markus Fiedler (BTH Karlskrona, Sweden), Bruno Tuffin (INRIA Rennes, France)
Area 2: Network Measurements and Big Data
Chairs: Oliver Hohlfeld (RWTH Aachen, Germany), Fabián Bustamante (Northwestern Univ., USA), David Malone (Hamilton Institute, Ireland)
Area 3: Networking Architectures and Paradigms
Chairs: Andreas Kassler (University of Karlstad, Sweden), Stefano Secci (Sorbonne UPMC, France), Roberto Bifulco (NEC, Germany)
Area 4: Wireless and Cellular Networks
Chairs: Steven Latre (University of Antwerp, Belgium), Albert Banchs (UC3 Madrid, Spain), Shiwen Mao (Auburn University, USA)
Open Access and Digital Libraries
ITC follows an open access strategy. Accepted ITC conference and workshop papers can be downloaded from the open ITC digital library. ITC 30 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (IEEE ComSoc), by IFIP TC6 WG6.6, by the Information Technology Society within VDE (ITG VDE), and in-cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Since ITC retains the copyrights, the papers will also be accessible for free even in those public databases like IEEE Xplore. This helps to increase the visibility and accessibility of accepted papers.
