Call For Papers

Fifth IFIP International Conference on
New Technologies, Mobility and Security
May 7 - 10, 2012, Istanbul- Turkey

With the technical sponsorship of IFIP TC6


NTMS'2012 is the Fifth International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security that will be held from 7 to 10 May 2012 in Istanbul, Turkey.

NTMS'2012 aims at fostering advances in the areas of New Technologies, Wireless Networks, Mobile Computing, Ad hoc and Ambient Networks, QoS,

Network Security and E-commerce, to mention a few, and provides a dynamic forum for researchers, students and professionals to present their state-of-the-art research and development in these interesting areas.

The event will be combined with tutorial sessions and workshops. Tutorials will precede the main program, aiming at the dissemination of mature knowledge and technology advances in the field. Two or more Workshops will immediately follow the main conference, offering the opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of on-going research relevant to following tracks (More information and the full call-for-papers can be found on the conference web):
