** We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message.



The 2004 IFIP International Conference on
Intelligence in Communication Systems

23 - 26 November 2004, Bangkok, Thailand

Main classes of topics:
- Architectures for Adaptable Networks and Services
- Semantic Web and Web Service Technologies
- Applications, Information Management and Security
- Intelligent Service Application Interface and Intelligent Human

The Conference Proceedings will be published in the LNCS series, Springer
Verlag. Selected INTELLCOMM'04 papers will be expanded and revised for
inclusion in Computer Networks Journal, A Special Issues on Intelligence in
Communication Systems by Elsevier or in Journal on Computer Processing of
Oriental Languages.


The Internet and Web provide more connection facilities, hence the
interactions between man-man, man-machine and machine-machine will increase
and communication will have an important role in modern systems. In order to
obtain effective and efficient communication, artistic, social and technical
issues have to be tackled in a holistic and integrated manner.
Unfortunately, communication techniques, concepts and solutions which have
been developed so far treat these issues separately, so that there arises a
need for communication researchers and practitioners in different fields
(engineering, science and arts) to meet, share their experience and explore
all  possibilities of developing integrated and advanced solutions which
incorporate ideas from such disciplines as communication arts, art design,
linguistics, Web technologies, telecommunications, computer science and
artificial intelligence.

Call for Papers
The 2004 IFIP conference on Intelligence in Communication Systems
(INTELLCOMM '04) is jointly sponsored by IFIP WG 6.7: Smart Networks and WG

intelligent communication systems, the third will outline research plans and

Paper Submission and Reviewing Process
Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers dealing with original
work which, at the time of submission, is not under review or has not been
published or accepted for publication in a Journal or by another conference.

Papers must be written in English, not exceed 16 pages and conform to the
formatting instructions of LNCS, Springer Verlag
( Only electronic submission
(PDF format) is accepted via the conference Web site:

Each paper will be submitted to at least three reviewers. Based on their
recommendations, the paper will be classified into: full paper, short paper
and poster. Full and short paper will appear in the main proceedings in
LNCS: Lecture Notes in Computer Science series
( Posters will be published in
separate proceedings.

Best paper awards will also be conferred on the authors of the best papers
at the conference. Selected INTELLCOMM'04 papers will be expanded and
revised for inclusion in Computer Networks Journal
(, Special Issues on Intelligence in
Communication Systems by Elsevier or in Journal on Computer Processing of
Oriental Languages (
