Networking 2006 will be organized by the University of Coimbra, Portugal. It is the fifth event in a series of International Conferences on Networking, sponsored by the IFIP Technical Committee on Communication Systems (TC 6).

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.

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.
