Networking 2012 is the 11th event of the series of International Conferences on Networking, sponsored by the IFIP Technical Committee on Communication Systems (TC6). The main objectives of Networking 2012 are to bring together members of the networking community from both academia and industry, to discuss recent advances in the broad and fast-evolving field of computer and communication networks, and to highlight key issues, identify trends and develop visions for the networking domain.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by Springer, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for fast track publication in the Elsevier Computer Communications Journal.

The technical sessions will refer to four main areas:

Network Architecture
peer-to-peer networks, virtual and overlay networks, cloud-computing architecture, network management and traffic engineering, internet of things, addressing and routing architectures, evolution of IP network architecture and protocols, green networking (energy and power management), performance measurement, monitoring and traffic analysis, resilient networks (fault tolerance, network recovery, self-*), cross-layer design and optimization, mobility (user, device, service, network), content-centric networks, broadband access technologies, resource allocation, switching and routing, network virtualization

Applications and Services
social networks, web architectures and protocols, middleware support for networking, quality of experience, pricing and billing, authentication, security, trust and privacy, anomaly detection, DoS detection and mitigation, content distribution, advertising and media networks, assistive networking, disaster-recovery networks, networking support for SmartGrids

Wireless and Sensor Networks
ad-hoc networks, mobile networks, cellular networks, sensor networks, mesh networks, delay/disruption tolerant networks, opportunistic networks, embedded systems, RFID-based systems, network-based positioning and localization

Network Science
network complexity, network neutrality, topology characterization and inference, network modeling, robustness and vulnerabilities of network infrastructures, emergence properties of real networks, dynamic peer-to-peer network topologies, epidemic spread models, user behavior inference, tools and techniques to design and analyze networks, community detection and modularity optimization, game theoretic approaches to communications and networks
