 of Things, complex interconnection environment, etc). SKG is to promote cross-area research and accelerate the development of relevant areas. SKG has built its reputation through eight years' professional organization. The conference invites well-known experts
 in diverse areas to present keynotes every year. Submissions come from all over the world. The acceptance rate of regular papers is usually lower than 20%. In addition to regular papers, the conference will also accept short papers reporting latest research
 progress or applications. SKG2013 will feature keynote, workshop, and journal special issues.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<b>Abstract:</b><span class="apple-converted-space">&nbsp;</span>This talk will describe CPN, a smart routing protocol for networks using &quot;smart packets&quot; that constantly monitor the network on behalf of end users, and selects paths that optimise an objective function
 that can depend on the network administrator or on the individual users. the objective function can include QoS, Energy Savings and Security. We will also present experimental results from our large network test-bed.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
