RNDM 2011
3rd International Workshop on Reliable Networks Design and Processing

RNDM 2011 is the third meeting in the series of RNDM workshops. Following the success of the first two events that took place in St. Petersburg (2009) and Moscow (2010), accordingly, RNDM 2011 is aimed at attracting world-class participants from both academia and industry working in the area of reliable networks design and modeling.

FOAN 2011
Fiber Optics in Access Networks

There are over 500 million broadband lines in the world today, of which more than 60 million is the high speed access line. The high speed access lines can be implemented in different ways, but predictions for the next 4 years to say that over 189 million of the shed will be based on fiber optic technologies.

This workshop has a primary goal to present the latest research in the field of fiber optic technologies that are intended for the access of telecom networks. In addition to this primary objective, the idea of the workshop is to gather in one place, science and experts in the field of fiber optic technology in order to share their knowledge, experience and ideas but also the workshop is an opportunity to learn new things. Therefore, the workshop planned to take place under the slogan "Come, meet, sharing, learn and see Budapest.

WMCNT 2011
3rd IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing and Networking Technologies

Mobile computing and networking have inarguably emerged among the most vibrant areas in the field of telecommunications today. Customers' requirement for immediate response to their prerequisites, targeting on access to information anywhere in the world at anytime, has increased the demand for productivity and effectiveness of mobile computing and networking. Moreover, the convergence of information communications technology and computing is creating new demands and opportunities for ubiquitous computing via wireless and mobile equipment without technological restrictions. Considering also the diversification of access technologies and their applications that prevail in the present telecommunication environment, amalgamated with the increased user mobility makes QoS provision a challenging issue.

Future mobile communication networks offer a variety of high quality applications. Furthermore, several challenges are imposed by the demanding wireless networking environment, in terms of network architecture, channel estimation, propagation and especially radio resource management. The understanding of these issues becomes even more demanding due to non-uniform spectrum allocation, various radio resource management policies, economic concerns, the scarcity of radio resources, the inherent transmission impairments of wireless links and user mobility.

The aim of the Third IEEE International Workshop on Mobile Computing and Networking Technologies (WMCNT 2011) is to provide an international venue for the discussion of architecture, design, implementation, analysis, measurement, performance and simulation in wireless, mobile and ubiquitous computing environments. WMCNT 2011 will serve as an open forum, where novel ideas will be exchanged via bringing together researchers, developers and engineers in both academia and industry.

OPNTDS 2011
3rd International Workshop on Optical Networking Technologies and Data Security

Optical network can be defined as a network of the fiber optics cables through which data travels on the thin fibers at the speed of the light. Optical Fiber cables act as the backbone when they connect different Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with each other and in case of any breakdown or any kind of problem in the backbone results in a communication failure at very large scale. Fiber optic technology is the most popular in the telecommunication industries as well as Local Area networks. Fiber optic cable is a bundle of various cables which are thin and provides a large bandwidth. The cost of the fiber optic cables is much higher and same is the installation of the fiber optic cables. Today, a large number of the communication networks depend on the fiber optics. Fiber optics is less susceptible to the outer interference than the metal cables. CCTV network, long distance switches, central offices, subscriber's loop careers and industrial networks use fiber optics for communication purposes. In the near future, fiber optical cables will replace the conventional coaxial and Ethernet cables for the LAN networking.
