  Preliminary Call for Papers

14th IEEE Workshop on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks (LANMAN 2005)
        September 18-21, 2005, Chania, Island of Crete, Greece

Sponsored by: IEEE Communications Society

The IEEE LAN/MAN Workshop continues its long tradition as a leading
forum for showcasing the latest technical advances in networking in
the local and metropolitan areas.  The workshop seeks to focus on
three areas that are currently generating considerable interest: Metro
and access networks, where optical and broadband wireless technologies
are vying to realize true broadband connectivity, promising abundant,
inexpensive, and readily available bandwidth; A second emphasis will
be on Applications, such as Storage, Gaming and Computing that seek to
exploit high speed metro area connectivity; A third area will be on
Wireless networks and architectures. The realization of cost effective
metro and access networks requires both theoretical investigations
(including new architectures, concepts, and economic and service
models) and experimentation (including prototypes, testbeds, and

Single-track presentations are planned to stimulate technical exchange
among researchers and practitioners with a broad interest in
networking; we specifically welcome submissions on both optical and
broadband wireless networks and relevant experimental activities.
Submissions should be short, focused, and provide a forum for
discussion of new and interdisciplinary ideas. Novel and speculative
ideas are particularly encouraged.
Extended   abstracts  are   solicited  on  any   LAN/MAN  topic
including, but not limited to, the following:             
* Broadband Wireless Access        * Emerging access networks:
* WiFi: roaming services,            Ethernet in the First
Architectures & Performance          Mile, EPONs, FTTx
* Resilient Packet Rings           * Measurement, modeling  
* SANs and Storage over MANs        and performance evaluation     
* IEEE standards (802.3ah,         * QoS, dynamic bandwidth     
.16, .17, .20)                       allocation, capacity
* Optical WDM networks based         placement/provisioning
  on packet, burst, and flow       * Routing Issues
  switching                        * Network survivability,
* RFid protocols & performance       self-healing rings
* Topology adaptation,             * Network security                        
reconfigurability                  * Pricing, multi-vendor     
* Network management                 interoperability            
related to LANs/MANs               * Applications over MANs
* Heterogeneous Wireless             (Gaming, Distributed Computing)
  and Ad-Hoc Networks              * Sensor Networks

The 14th LAN/MAN workshop will be held from September 18th to 21st,
2005 in the picturesque city of Chania, Crete, Greece (www.chania.gr).
The technical interactions at the workshop will be enhanced by the
unique beauty of the city of Chania which boasts a rich cultural
heritage and ancient monuments.
Submission, Review and Publication:
Please submit a 4-6 page extended  abstract, including figures and tables.
All abstracts must be electronically submitted in PDF according to the
guidelines in the workshop website http://www.ieee-lanman.org.  The 
published proceedings will include the final version of the 
Extended Abstract of up to 6 pages.  Selected papers will be 
directed to a magazine or journal publication after the workshop.
