The ITC submissions reflect the current developments in telecommunications: a paradigm shift to IP related issues, heterogeneous network structures, search for new services, uncertainty toward quality of service, and service level monitoring. A clear trend is crystallised by a close look at the proceedings: In the emerging telecommunication environment, the role of teletraffic is increasingly important but has to be redefined. The topics of 6 plenary and 23 parallel sessions give an idea of the broad range of issues covered by ITC18: Next Generation Networks & MPLS; UMTS; Topology Models & Ad Hoc Networks; Traffic Characterisation & Web Performance; Network Planning & Dimensioning; Routing; Resource Allocation; Measurements; Statistical Multiplexing; Traffic Modelling; Queueing Systems; TCP Modelling; Network Planning Methods; Cellular Networks; TCP Enhancements; Optical Networks; Wireless LAN; Wireless Networks; QoS & Economics; QoS Provisioning; Admission Control & Policing; Voice over IP; Adaptive Queue Manage-ment; Application Servers.
