   SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
   Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers. Papers
   to be submitted should not have been previously published in another
   forum, and should not be currently under review by another journal
   or conference. All submitted papers will be refereed for quality,
   correctness, originality and relevance. Of particular interest are
   papers that address concrete experiences with computer
   communications/networks and applications. An accepted paper must be
   presented by one of the authors at the conference venue. These
   accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by
   IEEE Press. All manuscripts must be limited to 6 pages with font
   size 10 in standard IEEE camera ready format (double column). The
   Program Committee reserves the right to decline without review any
   papers that exceed these length specifications. Submissions also
   must include the title, author(s) and affiliation, e-mail address,
   fax/phone numbers and postal address. In case of multiple authors,
   indicate which author is responsible for correspondence and
   preparing the camera ready paper for the proceedings. Electronic
   submission is required (ps or pdf format is preferred).  Manuscripts
   should be submitted by April 15, 2005 to the ICCCN2005 website.

   STUDENT POSTER SESSIONS:
   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 session 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 allowed.
