                             CALL FOR PAPERS
               3rd International Workshop on
              Networked Group Communication (NGC 2001)
                       November 7-9, 2001
			    London, England

		  Organized by UCL and COST 264 
                  in cooperation with ACM Sigcomm

Scope of the Conference

The aim of the Workshop is to allow researchers and practioners to 
present the design and implementation techniques for networked group 
communication, as well as performance analysis and evaluation of such
mechanisms. The focus of the Workshop is on multicast and networked group 
communication, right up to session and application level control
mechanisms and services. This Workshop is the third and only 
international event in this area (first workshop was in Pisa, Italy, 
in November 1999; the second was at Stanford, USA, in November 2000).

The workshop will start with half day tutorials on the 7th. The 
technical program will include two keynotes and invited talks on the 
8th and the 9th of November 2001. There may also be a panel discussion
as well as a poster session.

Authors are invited to submit papers on any issue related to
networked group communication, including: 

- application layer multicast and content distribution 
- multipeer applications (distributed interactive applications, games, DIS) 
- applications and services enabled through multicast 
- use of group communication mechanisms to support control plane tasks 
- scalability: overheads, stability, analysis, experiments 
- economic models 
- novel group communication architectures 
- routing, naming, address allocation 
- group and session management techniques 
- QoS and network engineering 
- reliable and semi-reliable protocols 
- wireless and mobile multicast 
- security 
- adaption and congestion control for group communication 
- heterogeneous group communication 
- deployment related issues 

The Proceedings of the Workshop will be published by ACM and papers will 
be available on-line prior to the workshop.
