In its 32nd year, the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks is one of the networking industry's oldest continuously running conferences.
Organizers have solicited original research papers on topics that include IPv6 deployment and migration, local-area networks, mobility management, and adaptive applications. Conference events include invited talks, refereed papers, and birds-of-a-feather sessions. A "rump session" features short, entertaining presentations in an informal atmosphere.
IEEE LCN 2007 is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Communications in cooperation with the Telecommunications Software & Systems Group of Ireland's Waterford Institute of Technology. IEEE LCN 2007 will take place in Dublin, Ireland from 15–18 October.
