While standards and products now support PSTN-equivalent services for voice, video and text over IP, there are significant difficulties in deploying attractive, large-scale, reliable and secure IP telecommunication systems. On one hand standardization organizations are currently defining their vision of Next Generation Networks (NGNs) with sub-systems dedicated to multimedia (IMS), to IPTV and to PSTN emulation (PES). On the other hand services that go beyond basic features remain hard to develop and deploy. VoIP domains almost always interoperate through the PSTN making peering and federation concepts far from being a reality. Interoperability is still an issue when coming to security, instant messaging and advanced features. IP-based emergency services are still not mature enough in terms of location determination and conveyance, architecture and trials. The aim of the IPTComm conference is to serve as a platform for researchers from academia, research labs, industry and government to share their ideas, views, results and experiences in the field of IP-based telecommunication with a special focus on security and services issues. IPTComm will include presentations of theoretical and experimental achievements, innovative security systems, prototyping efforts, case studies, and advancements in technology.
