Edited by: Kamel Adi, Daniel Amyot, Luigi Logrippo

Dedicated to Gregor v. Bochmann in the occasion of his 65th anniversary.

The bilingual international journal Annales des TélécommunicationsAnnals of Telecommunications, published by Hermès-Lavoisier, solicits papers for a special issue on New Technologies in Distributed Systems - Nouvelles Technologies de la Répartition. This special issue is being organized in the wake of the conferences NOTERE, which was held recently in Gatineau, Canada. The articles must be original and not submitted to other journals or conferences. Papers published in the Proceedings of NOTERE’2005, as well as papers that appeared in the proceedings of other similar conferences, will be considered for publication, but they have to be deemed by the referees as containing sufficient new material to warrant separate publication.

Topics of this special issue include (but are not limited to):

  • Emerging Technologies: objects and distributed components, mobile agents, peer-to-peer, middleware, brokerage, protocols and API (Web and 3G), as well as active, intelligent, ad hoc and nomadic networks.
  • Engineering techniques for distributed applications: specification, verification and testing, development process, notations and semantics, formal techniques, security, architectures, standards.
  • Application domains: telecommunications services, IP and wireless telephony, Web services, hybrid services, grid computing, e-commerce, network management, collaborative work, telework, distance education, e-health.

For wider dissemination, authors are encouraged to submit articles in English, however articles in French will also be considered.

Every paper will be sent to three reviewers, of which at least one will be chosen from the list of referees of NOTERE, and at least one will be chosen from the list of referees of Annals of Telecommunications.

  • January 16, 2006: Deadline for paper submission.
  • April 17, 2006: Notification of acceptance (in the interest of quick publication, papers judged to require major revisions will not be accepted for this special issue).
  • May 17, 2006: Revised copies for publication due.
  • Second half of 2006: Publication of the special issue.

Papers should be submitted in standard electronic format (preferably MS Word) to notere05@uqo.ca. Suggested length is of about 30000-50000 characters.

The camera ready version of accepted papers should be prepared according to the Annals of Telecommunications guidelines (in English, en français).
