December 4 - 5, 2008

Kitakyushu city, Fukuoka, JAPAN

PDF version [88kb]

Last update: Dec. 1, 2008


Aim and Scope

Information Network Design Workshop aims at exploring ongoing efforts in the theory and application including information network design and related fields. The workshop provides an opportunity for international researchers to share and review recent advances on network design research for huge-scale, diverse, and dynamic networks. Original contributions describing recent modeling, analysis, and experiment on network design research with particular, but not exclusive, regard to:

  1. Large scale and/or Complex networks

  2. Cross layered networks

  3. Overlay networks

  4. Sensor networks

  5. Mobile ad-hoc networks

  6. Delay/disruption tolerant networks

  7. Social networks

  8. Application on networks

Plenary Talks

  1. Prof. Mario Gerla, Computer Science Department, UCLA (USA)
    “Vehicular Urban Sensing: efficiency and privacy issues”

  2. Dr. Peter Eisert, Heinrich-Hertz-Institute, Fraunhofer (Germany)
    “3D Video Processing”

  3. Prof. Günther Raidl, Vienna University of Technology (Austria)
    “Combining Metaheuristics with Mathematical Programming Techniques for Solving Difficult Network Design Problems”

  4. Prof. David Corne, Heriot-Watt University (Scotland)
    “Nature-Inspired Techniques and Networks: a Selection of Applications”
