Call for Papers
Over the last three decades the Internet has undergone massive
transformations, migrating from a relatively focused scientific research
network to a ubiquitous and pervasive communications medium for the
masses.  This change has been brought about by immense research progress
in all layers of the network hierarchy, i.e., ranging from new
applications, to service-aware networking protocols and hardwares, all
the way down to physical transmission technologies (both wireless and

Now as the Internet continues to evolve and expand today, a host of new
research challenges and business opportunities are beckoning.  Of
particular importance are emerging topics in the area of network
heterogeneity, virtualization, services, and security.  The growing
cadre of wireless users is also adding another dimension into the mix
and pushing to the forefront issues such as mobility management, content
distribution, and self-organization.

Along these lines, the Next-Generation Networking & Internet Symposium
of IEEE GLOBECOM 2009 will address some of these exciting new challenges
and focus areas. Specifically, this event will solicit participation
from both academic and industry researchers working in key areas of
Internet design such as enabling technologies, services, architectures,
and protocols.  The overriding goal of this symposium will be to garner
the collective experience and expertise of these researchers to help
uncover the latest trends and directions for future Internet design.
Another concurrent aim will also be to solicit new ideas on the future
migration of the Internet, with regards to evolutionary or greenfield

The symposium will encourage the submission of novel technical studies
as well as broader position and vision papers comprising
hypothetical/speculative scenarios. Submissions must be conformant to
the GLOBECOM 2009 guidelines and done via EDAS entry:
