Welcome to the AAICT June newsletter, the first of our quarterly newsletters. The AAICT has been created to bring together ICT industry and academia utilising social media, traditional forums, conferences and a journal. We welcome input and news of your activities that we can promote on the website and in the quarterly newsletter. Are you interested in helping with the website, becoming a member of the ITNAC organising comittee, or a reviewer for our open access Journal called the International Journal of Information, Communication Technology and Applications?

International Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference 2015

We've listened to academics and this year the registration prices for ITNAC 2015 are lower than they've been for the past decade so now is the time to read the Call for Papers for the 25th International Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference to be held at UNSW in Sydney between 18-20 November 2015. This year ITNAC 2015 has gained the support of Hewlett-Packard Australia and there will be a hands-on Software Defined Networking workshop run with HP that will utilise the recently commissioned Australian SDN testbed that incorporates nine universities and AARNET.

ITNAC 2015 focus areas include, but is not limited to, Modelling and Simulation, Data Communications, Cyber-Networks, Data Mining, Cyber-Security, Distributed, Cognitive and Cloud Computing, Local and Metropolitan Networks, Community and Corporate Wi-Fi, Networks and Management, Software Defined Networks, Internet Technologies and Applications, Network-based Applications, Mobility and Vehicular Networks, Mobile Cellular and Wireless Networks, Optical Communications, Wireless Sensor Networks, Power Efficiency and Sustainability.


Don't forget to submit papers to the peer-reviewed open access  International Journal of Information, Communication Technology and Applications. The review process should occur in less than one month and papers are published as soon as the copyediting and layout is completed so there is little delay before your paper is published. IJICTA utilises DOI and papers are indexed to ensure that they're ARC compliant. The editorial board includes prominent academics from Australia and New Zealand as well as International representatives. Now is the best time to take advantage of the free publishing available through IJICTA.

Have you read about the new Australian and New Zealand initiative to build a super Software Defined Networking test bed that will include nodes at nine Australian universities and AARNET locations in Australia and at Seattle in the USA. The ANZSDN test bed will provide a facility that will boost research into new and innovative SDN solutions. Join the team and get involved. It does not matter if your not directly connected to the SDN test bed as VPN connection facilities will be added to the ANZ testbed soon. To find out more information contact a member of the team.

The AAICT committee understand that we all get a lot of email so our newsletters will be quarterly to ensure that we're not bombarding you with information. We're working to help Australian and New Zealand Academics and students have an affordable opportunity to publish conference and journal papers and to have fun whilst doing so. We invite feedback and volunteers so if you have anything to say or time to get involved please contact the committee.
