            (sorry if you receive this more than once)
Call for Participation:
INOC2003 - International Network Optimization Conference
October 27-29, 2003  Evry/Paris, France
Organized by INT (Institut National des T�l�communications, France) and CNRS/SAMOVAR (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)
Supported  by :
INFORMS (Section on Telecommunications),
GET (Groupe des Ecoles des T�l�communications)
France Telecom
Roadef (French Operation Research Society)  
ITC (international Teletraffic Congress)
Information sciences and communication technologies are increasingly both a main focus and a major application of well-established
as well as emerging theories and techniques.
Examples are Operations Research, Graph Theory and Queueing Theory, in addition to Stochastic Search, to state just a few.
The aim of this conference is to bring together people from those disciplines with a main focus on network optimization.
Special attention will be given to the latest technologies and to the challenges encountered therein.
Topics include, but are not limited to :
-Issues : Clustering, Routing, Scheduling, Nomadicity/Mobility, Network Models, Network Performance, Network loading, Location, Traffic Engineering, Frequency Assignment, Information Retrieval, Network Planning, Pricing, Survivability, Reliability,
Uncertainty, Resources Allocation, Topological Design, Multi-layer Networks, Cryptography, Quality of service, online problems
-Tools : Distributed Algorithms, Graph Theory, Queueing Theory, Operations Research, Soft Computing, Integer Programming, Non-linear Programming, Measurement Techniques, Metaheuristics, Stochastic Models, Evolutionary Computation, Simulated
Annealing, Taboo Search, Simulation, Approximation algorithms
-Technologies : IP Networks, MPLS, TCP, Mobiles(3G,4G), ATM, Adhoc Networks, Wireless, Lower Layers, SONET/SDH, Optical Networks, Multimedia, World Wide Web
