Intelligent Communication Protocols and Algorithms


Intelligent communication protocols and algorithms make use of Artificial Intelligence methods and techniques (such as machine learning, decision making, knowledge representation, problem solution techniques, and so on), to communicate the computation devices to transfer data between them.

Intelligent communication protocols and algorithms can be used to perceive or predict network changes, traffic flow patterns, or user behavior, in order to dynamically plan, modify, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions based on the gathered information, and learn from the consequences of its actions. Intelligent algorithms can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to take consciousness of what is happening in the environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or predict the appropriate environment for a behavior, can be achieved by intelligent communication protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the past and use this knowledge to improve future decisions.

Intelligent communication protocols and algorithms topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

• Design of intelligent communication protocols and algorithms

• Multimedia delivery

• Cognitive Networks

• Cognitive Radio

• Environment prediction

• Predict data network states

• Intelligent synchronization techniques

• Performance Evaluation of intelligent communication protocols and algorithms

• E-health

• Dynamic networks based on the perception of their performance

• Smart Grids

• Automatic and self-autonomous ad-hoc and sensor networks

• Wireless and mobile dynamic networks

• New intelligent techniques and methods for communication protocols and algorithms

• Security

• Power efficiency and energy saving

• Routing and switching

• Save communication costs

• QoS and QoE

• Content delivery

• Network Monitoring

• Network management

• Collaborative networks

Researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development, analysis or optimization of intelligent communication protocols or algorithms at any communication layer. They should be complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal.

We welcome technical papers presenting analytical research, simulations, practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and papers addressing the key problems and solutions. The topics suggested in the journal can be discussed in terms of concepts, state of the art, standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.

Prof. Elsa Macias-López

Macias-López is an Associate professor of Telecommunications at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria University, Department of Telematics Engineering, Spain. She received her PhD in Telecommunications (2001) from Las Palmas of Gran Canaria University for her work on Parallel Computing on a LAN-WLAN Cluster Controlling at Runtime the Variation of the Number of Proccesses. She received her MS in Telecomunications (1997) from the same University for her work on Parallelization of Diffuse IR Radiation System Simulation for Indoor Applications. Her research interests are in parallel and distributed computing and infrastructure wireless networks for collaborative computing. Her current research efforts have focused on the management of wireless channel disconnections to prevent abrupt endings of applications. She has published about 10 papers in refereed journals, 40 papers in refereed conferences, 1 paper in Spanish magazine, one educational book and co-editor of one book. She is member of Program & Organizing Committees & Chair sessions for several international and Spanish conferences. She has collaborated in several research projects. Professor Macías teaches telecommunications at the beginning, advanced, and graduate levels, and advises graduate theses in the area of wireless communications and parallel and distributed computing.
