Paper Submissions Deadline : June 1, 2005


ICI2005 is sponsored and co-organized by Kyrgyz State University of Construction, Transportation and Architecture (KSUCTA) and sponsored by IFIPTC6 WG6.8 (Mobile and Wireless Communications), WG6.6 (Management of Networks and Distributed Systems), WG6.4 (Internet application engineering), IEEE, IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Information Infrastructure(TCII).

The first IEEE and IFIP International Conference in central Asia on Internet (ICI 2005), the next generation of Mobile, wireless and Optical communications Networks will be held in Bishkek Kyrgyzstan. ICI 2005 invites high-quality recent research results in the areas of Mobile and Wireless Communications, optical communications and networking, the next generation of Internet, Application to Electronic and Mobile Commerce. INTERNET access and broadband technologies facilitate the way we do business. Optical and Wireless technologies have a worldwide installed base and widely available on PCs, peripherals, embedded systems and inter-satellite links. The main goal of the conference is to bring together scientists and engineers who work in these fields. The first IEEE and IFIP International Conference on Internet ICI 2005 will be held in central Asia, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, September 26 through 29, 2005. ICI 2005 is the first conference in its series aimed at stimulating technical exchange in the emerging and important field of Optical, mobile and wireless Internet and communications networks and its important in Electronic and Mobile Commerce. ICI 2005 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state of the art research and work in the wireless and Optical industries. The scope of the conference includes a wide range of technical challenges in view of the growing interest for wireless access to Internet and the evolution of third generation cellular systems included ITU IMT/UMTS. The conference also accepts progress on IST European Commission funded research projects. The Authors can present their finding on wireless quality of service, resource management, Ad Hoc and sensor networks. Radio interface design, adaptive antennas and arrays and indoor propagation, measurement and predictions also will be considered. A growing number of digital devices inside homes and the application of Ultra Wide Band (UWB), as well as Spectrum efficiency and low power consumption including low cost and secure wireless personal access are some of the areas to be considered in this conference. Optical communications networks are becoming increasingly important as the demand for high capacity links are required. Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) is widely deployed at the core networks to accommodate high capacity transport systems. Optical components, such as optical amplifier, tunable filters, transceivers, termination devices and add-drop multi-plexers are becoming more affordable and reliable. Access and metropolitan area networks are increasingly built with optical technologies to overcome the electronic bottleneck at network edges. New components and subsystems for high-speed optical networks offer new design options. The objective of this event is therefore to foster the exchange of information among researchers in these fast-moving fields. The authors can present their finding on new Fibers, optical fiber gratings and devices, optical amplifiers, optical sensing and medical application of fiber optics and opto-electronics.
