Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 - Call forPapersDeadline

The electronic Call for Papers can be downloaded from

Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 is the twenty-first in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 500 delegates from industry, government and research to share experiences and research results, identify future trends, discuss business opportunities and identify opportunities for international research collaboration under the ICT Theme of Framework Programme 7 (FP7). It will thus contribute to showcasing European research in the field, and position it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.

Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 will address all the challenges of building the Future Internet Infrastructure, which will be based on mobile, wireless and fixed broadband communications infrastructures. It showcases European research in the field, and positions it within the multiplicity of related initiatives supported in other regions of the world.

The Scientific Programme incorporates all the key constituents of Future Communication Networks including the themes Radio Access and Spectrum, Converged and Optical Networks, Future Internet Technologies and Integrated Space Communications.

Supported by the European Commission and Net!Works European Technology Platform, the Future Network & MobileSummit's reputation is based on high quality networking, high-level industry/policy plenary that discuss strategic issues for Future Networks, paper and workshop sessions that showcase original results in all areas of mobile, wireless and fixed broadband communications systems and networks.

Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 is Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Germany Section.

While European funded research results are of particular interest, innovative research funded commercially or at national level is equally interesting from a community perspective. The participation of representatives of leading commercial, research and regulatory organizations in the Conference Community ensures a stimulating and high quality networking environment.

*Call for Papers*
Important Deadlines:
Submission deadline for full papers: 09 December 2011
Acceptance decision: 31 January 2012
Final Paper Submission: 09 March 2012

The scientific programme for Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 is based on an open Call for Papers and the conference language is English.

Interested presenters are encouraged to prepare a paper up to 8 pages and submit online by 09 December.

All papers are double blind peer reviewed by the Technical Programme Committee. Please ensure that there are no contact details within the text of your paper submission for review (Word document or PDF), the properties of the file or the file name prior to uploading it onto the server. Please enter all authors and co-authors details as part of the online submission form. Please ensure that the paper uploaded by 09 December is your final version to be reviewed as all papers will be assigned to the TPC following the paper submission deadline.

Accepted papers will be presented orally in the scientific/technical tracks in the Programme. They may be grouped within the track into appropriate thematic Workshops. Papers not selected for oral presentation may be accepted for presentation in the Poster sessions. It is planned that papers accepted for oral presentation should be suitable for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. Best papers will be selected for publication in an IEEE journal.

Authors will receive feedback by 31 January. Accepted authors will then be invited to submit a final paper taking account of feedback provided for inclusion in the conference proceedings by 09 March.

*Call for Workshop proposals*

Proposals for Thematic Workshops are also invited. Workshop topics should be thematically focused, and normally will include presentations from several complementary projects. The Thematic Workshops will be incorporated within the Programme tracks,taking into account available sessions and relevant submitted papers. They may also include invited Keynotes and additional project contributions. All presenters and participants must register for the Summit.

We kindly ask you to forward this Call for Papers to your colleagues in research and/or industry interested in these topics.

We look forward to receiving your paper submissions online via

*Future Network & MobileSummit 2012 Technical Program Committee*
