ICCCN is a major international conference for the presentation of novel and fundamental advances in the field of Computer Communications and Networks. It also serves to foster communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving Computer Communications and Networks.

The primary focus of the conference is on new and original research results in the areas of design, implementation, and applications of Computer Communications and Networks.  We invite you to submit papers that present challenging and innovative results.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Sensor & Ad-hoc Networking
  • Network Security and Dependability
  • Peer-to-Peer, Grid, and Overlay Networks
  • Optical & High-Speed Networking

  • Wireless Mobile Networking
  • Network Architecture & Hardware
  • Internet Services & Network Management


Regular paper submission deadline: April 24, 2006
Poster paper submission deadline:  April 24, 2006
Notification of acceptance: June 26, 2006
Camera ready papers due: July 28, 2006

Submitted manuscripts may NOT exceed 8 pages and must be submitted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font).  Files should be submitted in Postscript or PDF format and formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper.  Submitted papers may NOT have appeared in, nor be under consideration for, another journal or conference.  The Program Committee reserves the right to NOT review papers that either exceed the above length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include the title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation, e-mail address(es), fax/phone number(s), and postal address(es).  In case of multiple authors, indicate which author is responsible for correspondence about the submission.

All submitted papers will be reviewed and judged on originality, correctness, relevance, quality of presentation, and technical strength and significance. An accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors at the conference venue and must be limited to 6 pages (with an allowance of up to two extra pages at a cost of US$150 per extra page beyond 6 pages if the paper is accepted for publication) in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font). ICCCN06 proceedings will be published by the IEEE Communications Society.  

The conference includes student poster sessions that highlight recent and ongoing research that has not been published elsewhere. An electronic (Postscript or PDF) version of the poster must be submitted to the conference website, along with a 200-word abstract.  The first author of the poster must be a student at the time of submission; the student is expected to attend the conference and be available for discussion during the poster sessions.  Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings. Students with accepted posters receive a discount from the regular conference registration fee. The paper and poster sessions are two fully independent conference tracks with separate review procedures.  Submitted papers are NOT considered for poster sessions, and poster submissions are NOT considered for paper sessions.  Submission of identical research material to both paper and poster sessions is not permitted. 

We encourage submissions from students.  Travel assistance may be available for students with top quality papers. The student must be the first author of accepted paper and must attend and give presentation to be qualified.


ICCCN plans to award one best paper in each of the three following areas:
  • Theory & Simulation
  • Systems Software
  • Hardware and Architecture

The authors of each paper will be recognized at the conference.
