      << OUR APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE COPIES >>

      CALL FOR PAPERS for Special Sessions in
      the Fourth IFIP/IEEE International Conference on
      Management of Multimedia Networks and Services (MMNS'2001)

      October 29- November 1, 2001, Chicago, Illinois, USA
      (http://www.mnlab.cs.depaul.edu/mmns2001)

      IMPORTANT DATES
      Submission deadline: April 20, 2001
      Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2001
      Final version due: July 21, 2001

      MMNS has identified a number ``focus topics'' that are of particular
      relevance and importance to the field of multimedia network and service
      management. MMNS plans to conduct special sessions to address such hot
      issues. Papers submitted to these special sessions will go through the
      normal submission and review procedure. The goal is to build special
      sessions of exceptional papers all dealing with a closely related theme.
      The set of focus topics include the following:

      * INTERNET TRAFFIC MONITORING: The focus of this special session
      is on techniques and methodologies for collecting Internet traffic
      statistics,
      descriptions of collection systems implemented and deployed in the
      Internet, results from these systems, and analyses of these results
      describing how multimedia networks and services can be better managed.
      For questions about this special session, contact Kevin Almeroth
      (almeroth@...).

      * Multimedia in AD-HOC NETWORKS: Networks of the future are envisioned
      to integrate the Internet with wireless mobile embedded devices and
      ad-hoc networks. Ad-hoc networks are collections of wireless mobile
      nodes that can be deployed rapidly without pre-existing or centralized
      communication infrastructure. These networks should support various
      types of multimedia traffic, including audio, video, TC-based data,
      and sensory data. Due to the nature of ad-hoc networks, number of new
      challenges must be addressed in order to facilitate seamless services of
      Ad-hoc networks. This includes unicast and multicast routing protocols,
      power-aware protocols in almost all layers of the network stack, quality
      and guarantee of service provisioning for multimedia traffic,
      self-configuring hierarchies and architectures, address allocation and
      naming,
      data dissemination techniques, efficient mobility support, fault and
      performance
      management tools, performance analysis of end-to-end protocols such as TCP
      and reliable multicast over ad-hoc networks. For questions about this
      special session, contact Ahmed Helmy (helmy@...)

      * RESOURCE MANAGEMENT FOR WIRELESS MULTIMEDIA: Broadband wireless
      multimedia services are becoming very popular. This special session will
      focus on architectures and techniques for supporting QoS Internet wireless
      multimedia. The session is looking for original contributions in this
      demanding
      area that address related issues. This includes integration of personal
      wireless
      multimedia into the Internet, efficient resource management techniques that
      consider the limited resources in wireless systems, such as spectrum
      resource and transmitter power, mobility management, bandwidth allocation,
      location and handoff procedures, channel access and assignment, call
      admission
      control, and end-to-end adaptive control for wireless multimedia. For
      questions
      about this special session, contact Muhammad Jaseemuddin
      (jaseem@...)


      * MOBILE AGENT-BASED NETWORK MANAGEMENT: Research and
      development on various forms of agents and mobile agents is continuing to
      grow in a staggering fashion in recent years. Agent-based telecommunication
      applications and services such as active networks, Qos and bandwidth
      brokers, E-commerce, information gathering on Internet, and feature
      interactions
      are becoming increasingly popular and are largely contributing to the
      development and to the success of distributed multimedia technology. This
      session will focus on research and development activities related to the
      field
      of agents in the area of active networks, and QoS agent-based architectures
      for managing multimedia networks and distributed services. The objective is
      to
      provide the audiences with a clear background into the opportunities and the
      challenges that the mobile agent emerging paradigm brings about For
      questions
      about this special session, contact Ahmed Karmouch
