While standards and products now support PSTN-equivalent services for voice, video and text over IP, there are significant difficulties in deploying large-scale, reliable and secure IP telecommunication systems. Services that go beyond basic call features remain hard to develop and deploy. The aim of the IPTComm conference is to serve as a platform for researchers from academia and research labs, industry and government to share their ideas, views, results and experiences in the field of IP-based telecommunication. IPTComm will include presentations of theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative security systems, prototyping efforts, case studies, and advancements in technology directly affecting IP-based telecommunication in general and VoIP and IMS services in particular.

We invite authors to submit papers in the following and related areas:

VoIP and IMS Security

• Denial of Service detection and prevention
• Security models of voice, video and text over IP services
• Detection and prevention of SPIT, Phreaking, Vishing
• Fraud detection and prevention
• Prevention and mitigation of security attacks
• End-to-end security
• Inter-provider trust and verification schemes

Qos and billing

• QoS for voice and video
• Traffic and QoS measurement of VoIP and IMS traffic
• Billing, AAA
• Management of VoIP infrastructure and services
• VoIP and IMS system performance, reliability and scalability

Convergent Services

• VoIP emergency services
• Service architectures (e.g. Parlay, SIP Servlets, IMS)
• Service creation environments and languages
• Presence and event notification
• Interactive collaboration beyond voice, video and text
• Feature interaction

The IPTComm conference is a two-day conference.

Paper Submission

IPTComm solicits full papers up to 12 pages in length, in two-column ACM conference format. All submissions must describe original research, not published nor currently under review for another conference or journal. The program committee will referee all papers, and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Pending cooperation agreements, papers will also be published in the ACM Digital Library. See Paper Submissions for more details.
