 Fifth IFIP International Conference on

 New Technologies, Mobility and Security

 May 7 - 10, 2012, Istanbul- Turkey


 Technically Sponsored by IEEE, COMSOC and IFIP TC6

All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. The best papers 

of the conference will be considered for publication in COMNET and

NETWORKS journals.



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 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
