    Call for papers

    There is tremendous research interest recently in the convergence of wired networks and wireless access systems and networks. Especially, recent development in wireless communication technologies and mobile networks has posed various challenges to the researchers in the field of performance modeling. These challenges require effective performance evaluation tools, techniques and methodologies to design new protocols and robust solutions before a global and wide-scale integrated broadband infrastructure of convergent multi-service networks can be established towards the next generation of network with efficient support of multimedia applications. As a result, performance modeling and evaluation has gained increasing importance. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an international forum for researchers and industry practitioners to present their state-of-art research on performance modeling and evaluation studies in all aspects of computer and telecommunication networks and to exchange ideas and explore new avenues of collaborations.
