 Fifth IFIP International Conference on 

 New Technologies, Mobility and Security

 Technically Sponsored by IEEE COMSOC and IFIP TC6 WG

 May 7 - 10, 2012, Istanbul- Turkey



NTMS'2012 is the Fifth International Conference on New Technologies, 
Mobility and Security that will be held from 7 to 10 May 2012 in 
Istanbul, Turkey. NTMS'2012 conference is technically sponsored by 

NTMS'2012 aims at fostering advances in the areas of New Technologies,

Wireless Networks, Mobile Computing, Ad hoc and Ambient Networks, QoS,

Network Security and E-commerce, to mention a few, and provides a 
dynamic forum for researchers, students and professionals to present 
their state-of-the-art research and development in these interesting 

The event will be combined with tutorial sessions and workshops. 
Tutorials will precede the main program, aiming at the dissemination
mature knowledge and technology advances in the field. Two or more 
Workshops will immediately follow the main conference, offering the 
opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of
going research relevant to following tracks (More information and the
