Networking 2006 is the fifth event in a series of International Conferences on Networking, sponsored by the IFIP Technical Committee on Communication Systems (TC 6).

Networking 2006 will take place at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, between May 15 and May 19. The main objectives of Networking 2006 are to bring together active and proficient members of the networking community, from both academia and industry, to discuss recent advances in this broad and fast-evolving field of telecommunications, and to highlight key-issues, identify trends and refresh vision in the field of telecommunications.

Networking 2006 will include a peer-reviewed program of technical sessions, panels, tutorials, and workshops. The technical program committee is soliciting papers describing original, previously unpublished, completed research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of computer networking and data communications.

The conference objectives will be pursued through highly technical sessions organized thematically, keynote talks, tutorials offered by invited experts, as well as through workshops and panel discussions on hot topics. Plenary sessions with keynote talks or panels will open or close the daily sessions. The technical sessions will be structured into three tracks:

  • Networking Technologies, Services and Protocols
  • Performance of Computer and Communication Networks
  • Mobile and Wireless Communications Systems
