bulletB Scope and Motivation

Modern Internet networking infrastructures embody a wide range of technologies-wireless and wired-and support a diverse spectrum of user services. However, as overall demands continue to grow, there is a continual need to develop improved "next-generation" architecture designs and services. In particular, some of the key challenges relate to improved network efficiencies and scalabilities, multi-technology integration, and the design of new value-added services. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of wireless Internet technologies is bringing to fore a host of related issues such as scalability, mobility management, and content distribution.

The planned Symposium on Next-Generation Networking & Internet of IEEE ICC 2011 will address some of these critical challenges and focus areas. We will invite both the academic and industrial communities to participate and submit their latest work relating to next-generation networking technologies. A key goal of the symposium will be to uncover some of the important trends and evolutions in next-generation Internet architectures and services. Furthermore, the symposium will encourage the submission of theoretical as well as practical and/or experimental studies in order to present a broad summary of the latest work in the area.
