Submission

The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of computer networking and data communications. All papers will be reviewed. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published in IEEE Xplore (confirmed) and indexed in relevant databases (such as EI-index). Papers must be submitted electronically via EDAS in double column IEEE format. The maximum size of paper should be 8 pages including tables and figures.

Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in a journal special issue.

All submissions will be handled electronically through the EDAS website.

Tracks

ICUMT 2011 will consist of two tracks, i.e. Telecommunications Track (ICUMT-T), and Control Systems, Automation and Robotics Track (ICUMT-CS). ICUMT-T is an annual international congress providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers in telecommunications targeted on newly emerging algorithms, systems, standards, services, and applications.
