                   Call for papers MMFN 2011
     International Workshop on Mobility Management for Flat Networks
                 6 October 2011 (date to be confirmed)

     In conjunction with the 14th International Symposium on
           Wireless Personal Multimedia Communication ˙˙ WPMC 2011

                       3-6 October, 2011
                       Brest, France

Technically co-sponsored by IEEE ComSoc, IEEE Section France and SEE

CFP available on

Cellular networks architectures rely on hierarchical and centralised
mobility anchoring functions tracking mobile nodes location and
movements while supporting mobile traffic management and indirections.
It is now recognized that such approaches lead to scalability issues
like the creation of networks bottlenecks in central mobility
anchoring functions as well as efficiency issues in cascading several
per-user traffic encapsulation/de-capsulation functions. Hence, with
the exponential growth in mobile data services usage, scalability and
quality of service issues are foreseen even if most of users are not
on the move while communicating.

Considering the current trend in flattening networks architectures,
new means of supporting mobility can be envisaged in a more
distributed and dynamic fashion. Such considerations include end-hosts
and network schemes.

In end-hosts schemes, mobility is provided at end-hosts level only,
i.e. without requiring mobility management functions support in the
network. Some examples are the use of facility offered by transport
(M-TCP, SCTP) or application (SIP, HTTP Streaming) layer protocols in
switching IP addresses used for end-to-end communications.

In network schemes, new distributed mobility management approaches
consider the distribution of anchoring functions among flat networking
entities. The main motivation is the elimination of nowadays single
point of failures and user traffic bottlenecks. Thus, mobility related
working groups in the IETF are now exploring requirements and
solutions supporting DMM (Distributed Mobility Management). These new
approaches promise the delivery of a better quality of service
together with more open networks, well suited to the provision of
heterogeneous access and offload solutions. They are also well suited
for the integration with both content networking and cloud networking
functions at the network edge. However, they may introduce new issues
like security or location concerns among others whereas there
consideration in the evolution of cellular networks architectures like
the EPC one is not yet foreseen in the 3GPP.

The goal of this workshop is to provide and further analyse a
comprehensive vision in the design and issues for mobility management
schemes in flat networks.

Original papers describing both theoretical and experimental results
within the scope of Flat Networks Mobility Management are solicited.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

   * Mobility management in flat networks
   * Distributed and dynamic mobility support
   * Paging and idle mode management in distributed and dynamic mobility schemes
   * Fully vs partially distributed mobility architectures
   * Scalability issues in current hierarchical/centralised mobility schemes
   * End-host vs Network mobility management
   * Distributed Mobility Management in LTE/EPC networks
   * Mobility management at transport or application layers
   * Data mobile usages analysis and forecast
   * Security and traceability concerns introduced by distributed
mobility schemes
   * Identification and location management in distributed mobility approaches
   * Content networking in distributed mobile networks
   * Cloud networking in distributed mobile networks
   * Resource management in heterogeneous distributed mobility schemes
   * Flat and heterogeneous networks topologies
   * Energy efficiency of distributed mobility schemes

Authors are invited to submit original papers in English (maximum 5
pages) electronically in PDF format through the EDAS system.
For all submissions, please use the templates available on the WPMC
2011 website (www.wpmc2011.org).

Submission deadline: 15 May 2011
Notification of acceptance: 1 July 2011
