Invitation to the Second Symposium on Problems in
the Optimization of Data Communication Systems
One session of the Symposium on problems in the optimization of data communication networks is to be devoted to software for networks. I believe that the work on protocols (1st, 2nd, and 3rd level) and file transmission procedures are highly relevant. NWG participants should welcome the opportunity to inject their ideas into the published literature. Many NWG/RFC's already are in good enough shape for publication so don't hesitate to submit your drafts. Time is short, so prompt action is essential.
CALL FOR PAPERS
SECOND SYMPOSIUM ON PROBLEMS IN THE OPTIMIZATION
OF DATA COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
SIGCOMM of ACM and the Technical Committee on Commuter Communications of the IEEE Commuter Society are sponsoring the Second Symposium on Problems in the Optimization of Data Communication Systems to be held at Stanford University on October 20-22, 1971. The symposium will include the presentation of papers, panel discussions, and workshop sessions. The purpose is to bring together people engaged in computer communication system design, analysis, and research. The setting will be one where each participant can engage in a dialogue on problems of interest to him with his colleagues in the computer/ communications professional community.
Papers are being sought in the following areas:
Advances in Data Communication Networks
Computer Communication Technology
New Applications and Applications Models
Software Organization for Communications
Systems Modeling, Evaluation, Optimization
Interface Problems and Standards
*may not exceed 5000 words
*must include an informative abstract
Detailed information will be supplied later concerning
the find copy of accepted papers.
Papers should be mailed to
3804 Boelter Hall
UCLA Engineering Dept.
405 Hilgard St.
Los Angeles, California
NO LATER THAN JUNE 15, 1971
Notification of final approval to authors will be given by July 21, 1971. Camera-ready copy of text plus figures must be received by August 21, 1971.
