A crucial component to the successful development of future communication technologies is the design of networks best suited to the management of large bandwidth and high quality requisites of emerging services. Network design incorporates important aspects such as protocol design or routing over different kinds of technologies such as wireless, wired and optical fibre-based communication.

The aim of the school is to offer a good spectrum of current research in algorithmic foundations and applications of communication networks, which can be of interest for graduate students and young researchers who intend to approach the field.

Attendance is limited to about 40 students. The early registration fee is 350 Euro which include all meals and on-site lodging in double-occupancy rooms (for a single-occupancy room the fee is 480 Euro). For late registration comes an extra fee of 50 Euro.
