IPTS 2000 is a new workshop dedicated to the important, emerging field
of IP Telecom Services research.

In contrast to the services available on the PSTN, a new world of
telecom services is possible on an IP-based infrastructure. This world
presents new challenges for service development, deployment and
management. This one-day workshop will serve as a forum for the
dissemination of research relating to these challenges.

The IPTS 2000 Program Committee invites submission of papers on
substantial, original and previously unpublished research in IP
telecom services, including, but not limited to:

- service architectures
  (e.g. AIN, SoftSwitch, JAIN, Parlay, DFC)
- service creation environments
- protocols, standards and interoperability
  (e.g. H.323, SIP, MGCP, Megaco/H.248, etc.)
- service programming languages
- service management - billing, fault tolerance, monitoring
- novel services

We welcome papers describing original research; position papers
describing research interests in the field, work in progress, or
future directions of research; project or system descriptions.
