St. Petersburg Summer experience
Book is now available via this link.
The conference will constitute a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results in the field of wired/wireless networks and will aim at providing research directions and fostering collaborations among the participants. In this context, the program committee will accept a limited number of papers that meet the criteria of originality, presentation quality and topic relevance. IFIP WWIC is a single-track conference which has reached, over the last 14 years, a high quality level, which is reflected by the paper acceptance rate as well as the level of attendance. Following the conference tradition, there will be a best paper award. Selected presentations will be broadcasted live in the Internet.
Internet is being extended beyond its traditional boundaries through gradually incorporating a wide-range of challenging networks and autonomous devices. From traditional wireless networks to opportunistic networks of mobile devices in urban environments and deep-space communications, the new approaches require an efficient merging with the traditional wired infrastructure. The need for more efficient protocols, clean-slate or evolutionary architectures, merging and assembling of different network technologies, unified operation and management of the heterogeneous components and the support for new cloud services are only few examples of the wide range of technologies building-up this new global network. IFIP WWIC addresses research topics such as the design and evaluation of protocols, the dynamics of the integration, the performance tradeoffs, the need for new performance metrics, and cross-layer interactions. This year, we further solicit submissions on mobile clouds and mobile edge computing (MEC), and applications of NFV and SDN to wireless and mobile networks.
The IFIP WWIC 2017 Proceedings will be available online by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Saint-Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia, politically incorporated as a federal subject (a federal city). It is located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. In 1914 the name of the city was changed from Saint-Petersburg to Petrograd, in 1924 to Leningrad, and in 1991, back to Saint-Petersburg. In Russian literature, informal documents, and discourse, the word "Saint" is usually omitted, leaving "Petersburg".
Saint-Petersburg was founded by Peter the Great on May 27 1703. Between 1713-1728 and 1732-1918, Saint-Petersburg was the imperial capital of Russia. In 1918 the central government bodies moved from Saint-Petersburg (then named Petrograd) to Moscow. It is Russia's 2nd largest city after Moscow with 5 million inhabitants (2012) and the fourth most populated federal subject. Saint-Petersburg is a major European cultural center, and also an important Russian port on the Baltic Sea.
The Historic Centre of Saint-Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saint-Petersburg is also home to the Hermitage, one of the most popular visitor attraction, and one of the world's largest and most prestigious museums, the Hermitage is a must-see for all first-time travelers to the city. Its exhibitions include over 3 million exhibits representing Antiquity, Western Europe, Middle East, Russia and many more epochs, regions and countries. It was founded in 1764 when Catherine the Great purchased a big collection of Western European paintings.
The conference will take place in the heart of St. Petersburg, right next to the main square - at the House of Scientists (former Vladimir Palace).
Originally, the Vladimir Palace was the last imperial palace to be constructed in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It was designed by a team of architects (Vasily Kenel, Aleksandr Rezanov, Andrei Huhn, Ieronim Kitner, Vladimir Shreter) for Alexander II's son, Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich of Russia. Construction work lasted from 1867 to 1872.
Like the Winter Palace and the Marble Palace, the Vladimir Palace fronts Palace Embankment; water frontage on the Neva was extremely prized by the Russian aristocracy. The façade, richly ornamented with stucco rustication, was patterned after Leon Battista Alberti's palazzi in Florence. The main porch is built of Bremen sandstone and adorned with griffins, coats-of-arms, and cast-iron lanterns. Other details are cast in portland cement.
Unique Vladimir Palace is known to be a part of cultural heritage of Russia. The palace retains a rich history connected with many famous names of Russian government officials. The first person is Grand Duke of Russia – Vladimir Alexandrovich. The building of the Palace is designed in the original and fashionable at that time style – eclectic. The building construction was completed in 1873, but the Palace was consecrated only one year later. Prince Vladimir married the Princess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin on the sixth day after the consecration of the building.
We highly recommend booking hotels in walking distance from the palace! The city is usually jammed in the morning and taking a taxi is not a very good option.
