Network Control and Engineering for QoS, Security and Mobility, III Edited by Dominique Gaïti, Sebastiá Galmès and Ramon Puigjaner The rapid evolution of the networking industry introduces new exciting challenges that need to be explored by the research community. The adoption of Internet as the global network infrastructure places the issue of quality of service among one of the hot topics nowadays: a huge diversity of applications with quite different service requirements must be supported over a basic core of protocols. Also, the open and uncontrolled nature of Internet enforces the need to guarantee secure transactions among users, thus placing security as another hot topic. Finally, the explosion of mobility and its integration as part of the global infrastructure are probably now the most challenging issues in the networking field. Key areas covered include: Network Policy Network Security Quality of Service Wireless Networks Intelligent Networks Performance Evaluation It contains the proceedings of the Third International Conference on Network Control and Engineering for QoS, Security and Mobility, Net-Con'2004, organised by the International Federation of Information processing and held at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Spain in November 2004. This valuable new book will be essential reading for all those working in computer science and engineering departments, especially researchers, engineers and students in university and industry research laboratories. Dominique Gaïti is based at the Universitè Technique de Troyes, France and, Sebastiá Galmès and Ramon Puigjaner at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Spain.Gaïti, Dominique is the author of 'Network Control And Engineering For Qos, Security And Mobility, III IFIP TC6/ WG6.2 6.6, 6.7 and 6.8 Third International Conference on Network Control and Engineering for QoS, Security and Mobility, NetCon 2004 on Nove', published 2004 under ISBN 9780387231976 and ISBN 0387231978.
