A MAN (Metropolitan area network) is typically a backbone network that spans a metropolitan area. A new era of computer networking is emerging with new MAN technologies that use fiber networks, MPLS, GMPLS, Ethernet LAN networks across the MAN. Most important are the services being offered by carriers that compete with the incumbent phone companies. The new networks are also extremely flexible. In some cases, customers can access the application providers using SLAs. Mobility and security are also two important criteria for choosing a MAN architecture. To further encourage research in this area, the theme of this conference is: Networking for MANs. You are invited to submit original papers to the conference for review. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
* Metropolitan Area Networks
* Wireless MAN
* Mobile MAN
* Optical MAN
* High-speed access networks
* xDSL, Cable, PNC,
* Control and management of MANs
* Resource and information management
* Analysis and simulation of metropolitan area networks
* Quality of service
* Security
* Mobility management
* Network intelligence
* Autonomic Communication

All papers should be submitted electronically on the web site of the conference in Portable Document Format (PDF). The name and affiliation of all authors should be included on the paper, and the contact information for the lead author should be added in a cover page.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
The three best papers will be published in a Journal
