Call For Papers
Computer Networks is an international, archival journal providing a publication vehicle for complete coverage of all topics of interest to those involved in the computer communications networking area. The audience includes researchers, managers and operators of networks as well as designers and implementors. The Editorial Board will consider any material for publication that is of interest to those groups.

SUBJECT COVERAGE

The topics covered by the journal but not limited to these are:

1. Communication Network Architectures:
New design contributions on Local Area Networks (LANs), Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs) including Wired, Wireless, Mobile, Cellular, Sensor, Optical, IP, ATM, and other related network technologies, as well as new switching technologies and the integration of various networking paradigms.

2. Communication Network Protocols:
New design contributions on all protocol layers except the Physical Layer, considering all types of networks mentioned above and their performance evaluation; novel protocols, methods and algorithms related to, e.g., medium access control, error control, routing, resource discovery, multicasting, congestion and flow control, scheduling, multimedia quality of service, as well as protocol specification, testing and verification.

3. Network Services and Applications:
Web, Web caching, Web performance, Middleware and operating system support for all types of networking, electronic commerce, quality of service, new adaptive applications, and multimedia services.

4. Network Security and Privacy:
Security protocols, authentication, denial of service, anonymity, smartcards, intrusion detection, key management, viruses and other malicious codes, information flow, data integrity, mobile code and agent security.

5. Network Operation and Management:
Including network pricing, network system software, quality of service, signaling protocols, mobility management, power management and power control algorithms, network planning, network dimensioning, network reliability, network performance measurements, network modeling and analysis, and overall system management.

6. Discrete Algorithms and Discrete Modeling
Algorithmic and discrete aspects in the context of computer networking as well as mobile and wireless computing and communications. Fostering cooperation among practitioners and theoreticians in this field.

TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS CONSIDERED

The primary purpose of the journal is to publish original and complete papers covering a specific topic or project in the above mentioned areas in sufficient detail and depth to be of practical use to interested readers. The readers should benefit from the novel solutions and analyses presented in the papers. Enhanced, extended versions of quality papers presented at conferences or workshops can be submitted to our journal for review. Note that papers which were already published with the same contents or simultaneous submission of the same paper to other journals or conferences will not be considered for publication in our journal and will be immediately rejected.

Over the past decade, advances in the Intelligent and Connected Transportation Systems (ICTS) collectively intend to trim down the fuel expenditure by avoiding congested traffic, enhancement of traffic safety whereas initiating new application, i.e., mobile infotainment. To address individual requirements of both safety and non-safety applications in the vehicular communication technology, there is the need to build up a new communication technology for integrated solutions of ICTS. Those commodities mentioned result in several types of vehicular communications, i.e., Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), and Vehicle-to-Roadside (V2R) communications. Due to the rapid growth in this field, various research constraints need to be addressed, e.g., reliability and latency, appropriate scalable design of MAC (Medium Access Control) and routing protocols, performance and adaptability to changes in the environment (node density and oscillation in network topology), and an evaluation and validation of vehicular communication protocols under the umbrella of coherent assumptions using simulation methodologies. To be more specific, the data retrieval in connected ITS’s itself is a great challenge in numerous ways. For example, the highly dynamic mobility of vehicles accelerates a plethora of research questions to be solved. Potential paper submissions are likely to exploit the connectionism and emergence of networking systems in various problem-solving methods in the ICTS and vehicular communicaitons with focus on the data retrieval. It may also outline essential challenges, proof-of-concept studies with a direct and simulated comparison to technical solutions, and mathematical models of communication principles. Possible topics of key interest are the following ones: • Intra-vehicle communication (e.g., vehicle-to-pedestrians, vehicle-to-portable, vehicle-to-sign) • Network and system architectures for ICTS • MAC protocols and channel management in ICTS • Physical layer and routing protocols for ICTS • Delay tolerant techniques and protocols for ICTS • Real-time optimization systems for ICTS • Modeling and theoretical proofs of communications in ICTS • Emerging Internet of Things (IoT) applications with ICTS • Smart sensors and communications in ICTS • Quality-of-Service (QoS) & Quality-of-Experience (QoE) for ICTS • Information and Content Centric Networking in ICTS • Data retrieval via software-defined ICTS • Performance evaluations of ICTS
