Subject: ITC 15 CFP

Dear Colleague:

On behalf of the Technical Program Committee of
the 15th Internation Teletraffic Congress,
we would like to invite you and
your colleagues to submit papers to this conference.
It will be held at the J.W. Marriott Hotel 
in Washington, DC, USA on June 23-27, 1997
and the paper is due by Sept. 15, 1996. 
Attached please find information about the Call For Papers.
Further details can be found at the ITC home page at:

Among various technologies and applications of interest 
to ITC 15 is wireless communications. 
With your strong research records and technical leadership 
in this area, we appreciate if you and your colleagues consider
making contributions to this congress.

Best Regards,

Kalyan Basu, Nortel
Phil Fleming, Motorola
Ed. Lipper, Bellcore
Sanjiv Nanda, Bell Labs.
Y.T. Wang, Bell Labs. 

======================= attachment ==================================

The International Teletraffic Congress has been held every 
three years in different countries since 1955.
The congress brings together the world's foremost teletraffic
and performance experts to discuss and exchange ideas
on challenges in advancing telecommunication networks and services.
Previous congresses have an enviable record of fostering 
technical excellence and impacting the research and practice
of planning, designing and engineering of telecommunication networks.


The 15th ITC will meet at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in 
Washington, DC, USA on June 23-27, 1997. 
The Congress will comprise plenary sessions with invited
speakers on topics of broad interest, parallel sessions on various
specialized fields, workshops on subjects of active research,
and tutorials on significant new developments.

The information age is upon us, marked by a convergence of computing,
communications and information technologies, and spurred on by 
breakthroughs in high-speed networking, tetherless communications, 
and ubiquitous networked computing power. 
The ability to take full advantage of that
convergence and to assure robust, dependable, cost-effective and 
competitive services depends heavily on concurrent progress in 
teletraffic analysis methods and tools. The goal of ITC 15 is 
to accelerate that progress through
the sharing of the latest research results, field experiences, and best
practices, and through the advocacy of future research directions in
teletraffic models, theory and tools.

The following is a list of fields of interest to ITC 15. 
Submissions should have a focus on teletraffic models, measurements, 
and methods. Papers surveying an area and identifying underlying 
key teletraffic challenges are
welcome, particularly in emerging technologies and applications. Case
studies, field trials and experimental results are especially 
encouraged.  Preference will be given to original contributions 
in areas of current interest to the industry.
