The 2nd International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2011)

Preface


Elhadi Shakshukia, Muhammad Younasb

a Acadia University, Canada

b Oxford Brookes University, UK
We warmly welcome you to Niagara Falls and to the 2011 International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT 2011). With the help and support of the technical committees we have put together an interesting technical program for the ANT 2011. We hope that you enjoy the program and have a fruitful interaction and discussion with the researchers and practitioners from around the world.

Ambient systems, networks and technologies are of critical importance to the modern day life including businesses, government, education, science and economy. ANT 2011 provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from multi-disciplines in order to address recent research issues and to present and discuss the ideas, theories, technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences on all theoretical and practical issues related to the ambient systems paradigm, infrastructures, models, and technologies.

The call for papers has attracted 181 papers from the authors from different countries and different continents. The papers were submitted to different tracks wherein each track has a separate technical program committee. Each paper was reviewed by different independent reviewers and we obtained two to five reviews per paper. Based on the received reviews, we accepted 67 papers for all the research tracks, which represent an acceptance rate of 37%.

We express our sincere thanks to the conference general chairs Prof. Nick Cercone and Prof. Albert Zomaya for their valuable support and guidance. We are also indebted to the Prof. Ali Ghorbani, Prof. Erol Gelenbe, Prof. Katia Sycara, Prof. Ralf Steinmetz, Prof. Sajal K. Das, Prof. Timothy Shih and Prof. Vincenzo Loia for their help and support in the advisory committee.

We convey our sincere thanks to our keynote speakers. This year, ANT 2011 featured two keynote speeches, delivered by two distinguished international experts: Prof. Hossam Hassanein from Queen's University, Canada and Dr. Diane McKerlie from Bell Canada, Toronto, Canada.

We also thank the ANT 2011 local organizing committee from Acadia University, Dalhousie University and University of Ontario for their hard work in the local arrangements.

We are very grateful to the workshops chairs, program vice chairs and members of the program committee. They showed great support and provided us with extensive reviews and constructive criticism of the research papers. Many thanks also go to all the authors who have submitted their research work to the conference. Without their contributions we would not be able to put together such a strong and interesting technical program.

We look forward to hearing productive and interesting discussions during the conference. We wish you a pleasant stay and an enjoyable time in Niagara Falls!
