*Call for Chapters: *

Proposals submission deadline: *June 30, 2010** **August 15, 2010 (Exteded

Full chapters submission deadline: *October 30, 2010*


      Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts for possible
publication in *Simulation in Computer Network Design and Modeling: Use and
Analysis*. This book will publish original material concerned with all
aspects of simulation on computer network design, modeling, analysis,
management, security, and performance evaluation. The primary mission of the
book is to be influential in the improvement and development of the theory
and practice of computer network design and modeling, appealing to
academics, researchers, and professionals. In the information technology age
and with tremendous advancement in computer and communication technologies,
computer networks have become an integral part of many organizations. It is
our further aim to provide enough examples to educate organizations on how
they can benefit from simulation to design, evaluate the performance, and
manage these valuable resources.

      Computer simulation is widely-used in investigating the performance of
existing and proposed computer networks designs, protocols, algorithms,
models, etc. The application of computer simulation can potentially improve
the quality and effectiveness of the network design and modeling. It is
generally unfeasible to implement a computer network design, protocol,
algorithm, or model before valid tests are performed to evaluate their
performance. It is clear that testing and evaluating such implementations
with real hardware is quite hard, in terms of the manpower, time, and other
resources. The preferred alternative is to model these algorithms in a
detailed simulator and then perform various scenarios to measure their
performance for various patterns of realistic computer networks environments
(e.g., connection media, node densities, node mobility, transmission range,
size of traffic, etc.). The main challenge to simulation is to model the
process as close as possible to reality; otherwise it could produce entirely
different performance characteristics from the ones discovered during actual
use. In addition, the simulation study must be repeatable, unbiased, r
ealistic, statistically sound, and cost-effective.


*Objectives of the Book*

      The main objectives of this book is to: present state-of-the-art
methodologies in computer networks simulation and modeling; illustrate the
benefits of simulation in computer networks design, modeling, and analysis;
Identify the main issues that face efficient and effective computer network
simulation; demonstrate by example how the performance of computer networks
can be evaluated; provide cutting edge research on the simulation and
modeling of computer networks; present the trends in computer networks
simulation and modeling; discuss the main features of current simulation
languages; point-out the main trends in simulation languages and tools;
introduce the most popular academic and professional computer networks
simulators; and finally provide a complete compilation of the problems which
arise during the use of simulation in computer network design and modeling,
and the solutions which are applied to them.
