      Part of the 2002 SCS Western Multiconference on Computer Simulation

      The objective of this conference is to serve as a forum for the
      exchange of ideas among a talented group of international researchers on
      advances in the design and performance analysis of communication networks
      and distributed systems. The conference emphasizes modeling, technical
      advances and unique applications in the areas of high speed networking,
      wireless communications, multimedia applications, computer architecture
      and distributed, parallel and mobile computing systems. The structure of
      the conference is designed to facilitate collegiality and continuity of
      discussion among the conference speakers and attendees on the topics
      covered during the week.

      Paper sessions are designed to promote discussion of concepts and
      methodologies based on the presentation of results and innovative
      modeling, simulation or analysis techniques. The conference grew out of
      the need to improve the efficiency and quality of models of increasingly
      complex networks and distributed systems. In addition to the technical
      sessions, the conference includes invited speakers, vendor presentations
      and exhibits arranged in conjunction with the 2002 SCS Western Simulation
      Multiconference (WMC).

      Original, high-quality technical papers, addressing significant
      aspects of the design, modeling, or performance analysis of communication
      networks and distributed systems are solicited for review, possible
      presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings.
      Papers that include well-conceived or innovative simulation modeling
      techniques with strong results and analysis are especially sought.

      Papers are solicited from not limited to the following topics:

      * Performance Modeling and Analysis
      * Mobile and Nomadic Computing
      * Distributed and Wireless Multimedia Systems
      * QoS Support for Wireless Ad Hoc Network Applications
      * Routing and Mobility Management in Wireless Networks
      * Power Control in Wireless Computer Systems
      * Distributed and Intelligent Sensor Networks
      * Wearable Computer Systems
      * Resource Allocation in High Speed Networks
      * Switch and Processor Architectures for High Speed Routers
      * Advances in Computer Architecture and Memory Systems
      * Network and Parallel Computing
      * Storage Area Networks
      * Content Based Image Retrieval Systems
      * Real-Time and Mobile Web-Based Computing
      * Reliable Multicast Routing and Group Communications
      * Network and Application Security and Availability
      * Web Caching and Switching
      * Scalable and Reliable Distributed Servers
      * Load Balancing in Distributed Systems


      IMPORTANT DATES:

      September 15, 2001 Paper Submission Deadline.
      October 15, 2001 Acceptance Notification.
      November 15, 2001 Camera Ready Paper Deadline.


      Authors are requested to submit manuscripts electronically to the Program
      Chair by 11:00 pm (Eastern Time) of the due date via Anonymous ftp
      directly: ftp.ece.neu.edu:/pub/conf/CNDS/2002/Submissions. Papers can
      also be uploaded using the Web Site: www.ece.neu.edu/conf/CNDS/2002/.
      Papers must be in English and submitted files must be in Postscript or PDF
      format with all figures and tables included. Files names must be unique
      and reflect the name of the primary author, his or her primary
      affiliation, the version number of the file and an extension indicating
      the file type. Multiple versions may be uploaded; however, only the most
      recent will be reviewed. Filenames are not readable once the file transfer
      has been completed. Confirmations will be sent to the contact author when
      the file has been retrieved and successfully viewed or printed. Only
      original unpublished material will be considered for publication.

      This year's International TPC is outstanding. Its members represent a
      broad spectrum of interrelated interests and technical expertise relevent
      to CNDS including performance analysis, simulation, communications
      networks, both wired and wireless, mobile computing, computer
      architecture, distributed systems and more. The TPC consists of newcomers
      and veterans of CNDS from Universities and Research Labs around the
      world. Each member is committed to ensure that all submissions are fully
      refereed for accuracy, technical content, and relevance, and to make this
      year's conference an exciting International forum for the presentation of
      high quality work and the exchange of ideas. Papers should be limited to
      20 double-spaced pages (camera-ready versions are limited to 6
      single-spaced pages). Authors must include a single page which includes
      all the authors' names, titles and affiliations, a paper abstract, list of
      top three relevant topics and contact person information (complete
      address, email, phone, and fax). Accepted papers will appear in the
      Conference's Proceedings to be published by the Society for Computer
      Simulation. Instructions for submitting camera ready papers will be sent
      to authors following paper acceptance. An award will be presented to the
      best paper presented at WMC'02. Authors of top papers will also be
      encouraged to submit a follow-on paper to the International Journal in
      Computer Simulation. Authors must obtain employer, client, or government
      releases prior to submittal of the final manuscript.

      Please do not hesitate to contact the Program Chair, Prof. McDonald via
      email (mcdonald@...), or telephone ((617) 373-3028) with any
      questions concerning the paper submission and review process, or questions
      regarding the relevance of a paper to the conference.
