Call for Papers

Special Issue of
International Journal of Computer Systems Science & Engineering
ATM Switching

Guest Editors: Hussein T. Mouftah, Queen's University, Canada
Mohammed Atiquzzaman, Monash University, Australia.
Papers are solicited for a special issue of the International Journal of
Computer Systems Science & Engineering on Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
Switching to be published in the third quarter of 1996.

During the past decade, a considerable amount of effort has been made in
studying and designing ATM switches which is believed to be the most
developed aspect of ATM. The field has now become a mature area and ATM
switches are becoming commercially available. This special issue will
include a set of original and survey articles from both industry and
academia that represents the current state-of-the-art in ATM switching.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

o Switch architectures o Fault tolerance
o Buffering schemes o Congestion control and traffic management
o Performance modeling o Practical experience & field trials
o Buffer management o Simulation techniques for large switches
o Commercial switches

Five copies of complete manuscripts (not to exceed 25 double-spaced pages)
should be sent to Mohammed Atiquzzaman by 1 February 1996. Please include a
title page containing author(s) names and affiliations, postal addresses,
e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers. Electronic (PostScript
