Theme and Scope

Nowadays the Internet is playing a role of social and economical infrastructure and is expected to support not only comfortable communication and information dissemination but also any kind of intelligent and collaborative activities in a dependable manner. However, the explosive growth of its usage with diversifying the communication technologies and the service applications makes it difficult to manage efficient sharing of the Internet. In addition, an inconsistency between Internet technologies and the human society forces a complex and unpredictable tension among end-users, applications, and ISPs (Internet Service Providers).
It is thought, therefore, that the Internet is approaching a turning point and there might be the need for rethinking and redesigning the entire system composed of the human society, nature, and the Internet. To solve the problems across multiple layers on a large-scale and complex system and to design the entire system of systems towards future information networks for human/social orchestration, a new tide of multi-perspective and multi-disciplinary research is essential. It will involve not only the network engineering (network routing, mobile and wireless networks, network measurement and management, high-speed networks, etc.) and the networked applications (robotics, distributed computing, human computer interactions, KANSEI information processing, etc.), but the network science (providing new tools to understand and control the huge-scale complex systems based on theories, e.g., graph theory, game theory, information theory, learning theory, statistical physics, etc.) and the social science (enabling safe, secure, and human-centric application-principles and business-models).
The Information Network Design Workshop aims at exploring ongoing efforts in the theory and application on a wide variety of research fields related to the design of information networks and resource sharing in the networks. The workshop provides an opportunity for academic/industry researchers and professionals to share, exchange, and review recent advances on information network design research. Original contributions describing recent modeling, analysis, and experiment on network design research with particular, but not exclusive, regard to:

Submission Procedure

Submitted papers should be original and contain contributions of theoretical, experimental or application nature, or be unique experience reports. Papers must be submitted no later than August 3, 2009 and electronic submission in PDF via the conference web site is required. For submitting, go to the INCoS09 paper submission site (, follow the instructions, and select the WIND09 workshop among the options. There are two types of submission: Full paper and Short paper. Submitted papers should be in the IEEE 8.5 two-column format of from 3 up to 6 pages (as Full paper) or just two page long (as Short paper), and should contain up to 5 keywords. Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness, and will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.


All accepted papers are included in the Proceedings of the INCoS 2009 conference, which will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. All accepted papers must be accompanied by a full paid registration of at least one author, and be presented at the workshop to appear in the proceedings.


To be announced at the INCoS website.
