The 17th IEEE Workshop on Local and Metropolitan Area Networks
May 5-7, 2010, Long Branch, New Jersey, USA

The IEEE LAN/MAN Workshop continues its tradition as a leading forum for 
discussing the latest technical advances in networking in the local and 
metropolitan areas. The workshop will retain the LANMAN mainstay of 
Local and Metropolitan area networking, including edge applications. 
This year, the workshop will also focus on two compelling issues for 
edge networks that are currently experiencing significant change and 
innovation: the first is the design of scalable architectures for 
enterprise and data center networks. This area is motivated by the 
evolution of mega-scale data centers for which traditional layer-2 
network designs simply do not scale, as well as the need to better 
design enterprise networks that carry increasing high bit-rate traffic. 
The second focus area is the design of scalable mechanisms and protocols 
for network management and trouble-shooting in home and enterprise 
networks. Currently, many of these issues are handled manually --- this 
practice is simply not scalable as home and enterprise networks get 
larger and user needs get more demanding.

LANMAN seeks both theoretical and experimental contributions. 
Single-track presentations are planned to stimulate technical exchange 
among researchers and practitioners with a broad interest in networking. 
We expect the workshop to be a forum for discussion of new and 
interdisciplinary ideas on new architectures, paradigms, concepts, and 
economic and service models. Novel and speculative ideas are 
particularly encouraged. We also encourage studies based on measurements 
from real-life networks and testbeds.

Extended abstracts are solicited on any LANMAN topic including, but not 
limited to, the following:

* Broadband Wireless Access, including WiMAX
* WiFi: roaming services, Architectures & Performance
* Metropolitan & Residential Networks and Architectures including 
Ethernet in the First Mile, EPONs, FTTx etc.
* IPTV, video delivery and applications
* SANs and Storage over MANs
* IEEE 802 standards
* Optical WDM networks based on packet, burst, and flow switching
* RFid protocols & performance
* Topology adaptation, reconfigurability, routing
* Network management related to Edge Networks
* Heterogeneous Wireless and Ad-Hoc Networks
* Ubiquitous wireless, wired and remote access
* Adaptive wireless networks including cognitive radios
* Measurement, modeling and performance evaluation
* Cross layer QoS, dynamic bandwidth allocation, capacity 
* Network reliability and survivability
* Network security
* Pricing, multi-vendor interoperability
* LAN and MAN based applications (gaming, distributed computing, media 
distribution to and in the home, enterprise applications, ambient 
technology, wearable-computing)
* Impact of sensors everywhere including homes

The 17th LAN/MAN workshop will be held from May 5-7, 2010 at the Ocean 
Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch, New Jersey. The technical 
interactions at the workshop will be enhanced by the social activities 
and sightseeing possibilities in the area.

Submission, Review and Publication: Please submit a 4-6 page extended
