SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of
JOURNAL OF PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING
on
Routing in Computer and Communication Networks
The efficiency of message routing is critical to the performance of computer and communication networks. The routing process involves moving data between the various hosts of a given network. When such a process involves more than one source and/or one destination, it is commonly referred to as a collective communication process.
The complexity of routing is further complicated by host mobility in wireless networks (cellular and/or ad-hoc). It is clear that the conventional routing algorithms are not suitable in networks whose topology is dynamic, especially when real-time traffic has to be supported.
The main goal of the special issue is to provide a forum for recent results on routing protocols in computer and communication networks. Our main goal is to offer both researchers and practitioners working in this area an opportunity to express and discuss their views on the current trends, challenges, and state-of-art solutions to the design of efficient routing protocols.
Topics to be covered in the special issue include but are not limited to:
[o] Impact of topology on routing
[o] Deadlock, livelock, and starvation-free routing
[o] Reliable routing (point-to-point and multicasting)
[o] Designing high-performance routers/switches/buses
[o] Communication subsystems
[o] Hardware support for routing
[o] Support for collective communication [o] Routing in the Internet
[o] Routing in mobile networks (cellular and ad-hoc wireless networks)
[o] Intra-cluster and in-cluster routing of LANs
[o] Performance evaluation and benchmarking
[o] Randomized routing protocols

Publication is scheduled for Fall 2000. Please submit your manuscript, following the guidelines below, to one of the guest editors by November 30, 1999.
