Panel Abstract:

Cognitive radios, MIMO antennas, wireless mesh networks, self-configuration support, seamless and context mobility, mobile user agents, and mobiquitous, multimedia, always-on, location-based communication services, are just some of the terms that have become part of the emerging lexicon to describe the future wireless communication technology landscape for 4G and beyond. From the mobile device, airlinks, and internet access network to the applications and services that next generation mobile service providers are to support, only one point seems to enjoy global consensus: we have barely begun to scratch the surface in creating the  networks to serve the communication needs of a future media-hungry world equipped with an ever-increasing number of wireless devices. At the core of all this anticipated growth lies the following question: what technology enablers or application drivers will provide the incentive to fuel all these innovations?

This panel will elicit thought- provoking discussions on the evolution and/or revolution of wireless and mobile networking technology. Technology experts from academia and industry will share their perspectives on which are
the key drivers that are likely to support the introduction of innovations and propose a technology roadmap highlighting research, industrial, and political challenges to be addressed.Those who can predict where the next big bang is likely to occur will have a running start in the race to untether the communication services of future generations.


There are 26 technical sessions! Research papers cover a large set of topics such as Ad Hoc Routing, Mobility, Energy Efficient Sensors, WWANS/WLANS/WPANS, Multicast, Ad Hoc Networking, Flow Control, Switching & Scheduling, Optical Networks, Denial-of-Service, MANET Performance, WDM Networks, Internet Security, QoS and Security in Ad Hoc Networks, Video Transport, Overlay Networking, Sensor Networks, Voice over IP (VoIP), Network Management, Sensor
Network Location and tracking, and Streaming and Coding, As part of this exciting technical/research program, ICCCN2005 includes 3 sessions of presentations of top 9 papers (selected by Program Committee) and one of these papers will be selected to receive the "Best Paper Award" to be announced at the conference banquet.


The deadline for early registration is SEPTEMBER 20, 2005. Please visit the web site ( for the registration form and for more up-to-date information.
