About the Conference:

ICUMT is an IEEE sponsored annual international conference providing an open forum for researchers, engineers, network planners and service providers in telecommunications targeted on newly emerging systems, standards, services, and applications. ICUMT is positioned as a premier international annual conference for the presentation of original and fundamental research and engineering results. The aim of ICUMT is to bring together Russian and international players in telecommunications.

The conference will consist of open call sessions, workshops and industrial panels.

The ICUMT 2009 is supported by the Popov Society and Government of St.Petersburg and regarded as very important part of scientific life of Russia. The conference has strong industrial support from worldwide leading telecommunication vendors as well as national companies and SMEs.

The conference proceedings (including workshops) will be published in IEEE Xplore (approved) and indexed in relevant databases.Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in a special issue.

The ICUMT 2009 will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia - the meeting point of East and West. Through its stunning architecture and wonderful art galleries and museums, among a number of other attractions, the wealth of history of East and West can be seen and felt in this beautiful city.

The venue place and official hotel for the ICUMT 2009 is the Pulkovskaya Park Inn.

Paper 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The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of Optical Networking Technologies and Data Security. All papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, published in IEEE Explore (approved).

Papers must be submitted electronically in the EDAS. The maximum size of papers should be 5000 words including tables and figures. The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address. The total length of a paper should not exceed 6 pages formatted according to the IEEE instructions.

Scope and Description of the ICUMT Workshop(IEEE Sponsored) on Experimental Facilities for the Future Internet (EXFFI 2009)

The workshop presents recent advances in the field of experimental facilities, networks and testing platforms used for the design, development and experimentation on future technology networks and communication paradigms. Emergence of new communication technologies is to much extent dependent on the existence of experimental facilities that offer innovative means of realising and testing new network architectures, protocols and services.

The objective of the workshop is to present technological and scientific advantages in this field focusing on new experimental network architectures that enable experimentation on new distributed network architectures (autonomic and peer-to-peer communications), next generation network technologies (Web 2.0/3.0, IMS, sensor, mobile, wireless, mesh networks), overlay service architectures, new communication paradigms, ICT technologies for energy saving applications and energy-aware networks.

Also, of specific interest are network node architectures that enable experimentation on new forms of communication such as open router architectures for re-configurable virtualisation of network topologies, protocols and services as part of the experimental facility's capabilities as well as router architectures that support distributed and autonomic forms of communication.

Since an important aspect for the viable future of experimental facilities is revenues generation out of testing services commercialization, the workshop also solicits contributions presenting business models that enable generic exploitation of the services of experimental facilities by real users from the Academia and the Industry as well as methodologies that ensure transparent access of users to the experimental facility.


The topics of interest include but not limited to:

- experimental network architectures for future internet services incubation and testing
- testing of new communication paradigms and related services (p2p, novel QoS reservation methods, NGN networks, etc)
- experimental facilities for energy savvy applications and energy aware networks testing
- experimental facilities for next generation networks and services testing (sensor, mobile, wireless, short range networks)
- testing services and facility accessibility technologies
- network, protocol and services virtualisation technologies and router architectures
- router architectures suited for new generation communication services
