International Conference on Data Communication Networking
DCNET 2010 – International Conference on Data Communication Networking: July 26-28, Athens, Greece
July 26-28     Athens, Greece
Call for Papers

DCNET is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

The purpose of DCNET 2010, the International Conference on Data Communication Networking, is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on communication networking between computer systems or other digital devices.

Computer networking is a combination of knowledge related to the areas of telecommunications, computer science, information technology and/or computer engineering. Data communication networks rely heavily upon the theoretical and practical application of these scientific and engineering disciplines. DCNET encompasses a diversity of aspects, from network architecture and protocols, to network management, monitoring and control, performance analysis, sensor nets, services over networks, LANs and WANS, to higher education in the data communication field.

Ideas on how to analyze and approach problems by combining data/information systems and communication technologies, either in the scope of R&D projects, engineering or business applications, are welcome. Papers describing new methods or technologies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of DCNET, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
The best papers will be selected to appear either in an international journal or in a book to be published by Springer-Verlag.

Special sessions, case-studies and tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics related to the main conference are also envisaged: researchers interested in organizing a special session, or companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP.
The proceedings of DCNET 2010 will be considered by EI after their publication.


Greece, located in the southeastern Europe, is a very beautiful country that offers top quality tourist attractions to the visitor. Consisting of the main land and several islands, it offers beautiful beaches, lovely mountain landscapes, many picturesque villages, and a wealth of archaeological sites and treasures.
Piraeus, Greece's third largest urban centre and now part of the Athens metropolitan area, is located a few minutes away from the center of Athens - Greece's capital named after Athena, the goddess of wisdom, is a very attractive and busy city.
Piraeus has the biggest harbour in all Greece and one of the most important in the mediterranean. At the top of that harbour, many little picturesque and lively bays may be found having many excellent cafeterias and traditional Greek restaurants and taverns.
Piraeus is an ideal place to start off excursions both for island cruising and mainland sightseeing. There are many boats that start off their journey to the numerous beautiful Greek islands from the harbour of Piraeus which is the main connection point to all of the Greek islands.
The conference will be held at the University of Piraeus, which was founded in 1938 under the title of the “School for Industrial Studies” and located in a modern building in the centre of Piraeus (one of the 8 universities in the region of Athens), in collaboration with the department of informatics. The department began operating in 1992 and focuses on both theoretical and practical aspects and advancements of computer science.
