APAN (Asia Pacific Advanced Network) Network Research Workshop 2012
at 2012 APAN Colombo Meeting
August 25, 2012
Colombo, Sri Lanka


The APAN (Asia Pacific Advanced Network) Network Research Workshop 2012 (APAN-NRW 2012), to be held as a part of the 34th APAN Colombo Meeting, will be the ninth event in the series (startedfrom 2004 Cairns Meeting). Graduate students and researchers from Asia-Pacific and elsewhere gather in this one-day forum to discuss their work in progress and visions for research activities. The goal of this event is to provide the venue for exchanging research ideas and best practices in the broad field of realistic network and application research, covering network technology, network applications, and network management and operation.


This workshop solicits long and short papers with a broad scope in network areas. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Network technology: wireless & mobile networks, optical networks, future network technology, ad hoc and sensor networks, delay and disruption-tolerant networks, Future Internet, cloud computing infrastructure, and others.
  2. Network management and operation: network security, traffic measurement, performance analysis, energy-aware network management and control, and others.
  3. Networked applications: distributed networked applications, ubiquitous computing technology, grid/cloud computing applications, immersive media applications, and others.
  4. E-culture, e-health, e-science applications: advanced/unified collaboration environments, cyber networked performance, e-health & remote medical activities, e-science infrastructure and applications, social science with Internet, and others.

Paper Submission

Papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Regular and short papers should use the designated template [Download Here] with maximum number of 8 and 4 pages, respectively. Papers must be submitted electronically in MS-Word or PDF format.
