Call For Papers
CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS
3rd and Final Proposal Submission Deadline: May 30, 2011
Integrated Models for Information Communication Systems and Networks:
Design and Development
A book edited by Dr. Aderemi A. Atayero and Prof. Oleg I. Sheluhin*
Covenant University, Nigeria
Moscow Technical University of Communication and Informatics, Russia*
To be published by IGI Global: http://bit.ly/igi-modeling
Modeling and simulation of systems and networks is a current trend in design, analysis, development, and prognosis of real-life processes. These help researchers and developers to determine the probable state of current systems as well as in the determination at the design stage of the states of envisioned systems. The need for an edited collection of works envisioned to give detailed description of the tasks of designing integrated models of complete communication systems, as opposed to the usual approach of describing separate elements of information system nodes becomes imperative.
OBJECTIVE OF THE BOOK
This book aims at providing relevant theoretical information as well as current research findings in the subject area. It will be written by professionals for specialists and researchers in need of a text on modeling with emphasis on non-trivial models of real information processes as observed in information and communication networks and systems. As well as for professionals desiring to enhance their knowledge of modeling at systems level with the aid of contemporary software packages.
The target audience of this book is composed of academic researchers and Telecommunication, Information Technology, Computer Science and Engineering, professionals. The book aims at providing enough background information to serve as a relevant text for final year and postgraduate students of Mathematics, Information and Communication Technology, Networking, Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments, Computer science departments.
RECOMMENDED TOPICS INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING:
General Setup Principles of Communication Systems and Networks
Modeling of Random Numbers
Modeling of Discrete Distributions
Algorithms for Modeling Statistical Signals and Interference in Communication Systems
Modeling of Markov Random Processes
Examples of Constructing Markov Model
Modeling of Queuing Systems
Information System Modeling Using Typical Technical Means
Modeling of Information Communication Systems
Self-similar Processes and Their Application in Telecommunication
Specialized Systems of LAN Imitation Modeling
Imitation Modeling Using Network Simulator2
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before May 30, 2011, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter(s). Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by June 15, 2011 about the status of their proposals, after which they will receive chapter guidelines for the preparation of their chapters. Full chapters should be submitted by July 20, 2011. All submitted chapters will be subjected to a double-blind review process. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints. For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit www.igi-global.com. This publication is anticipated to be released in the first quarter of 2012.
