Welcome to the LCN web site! A particular welcome to those who are new
to the IEEE LCN conference and this web site. You can find information
on past LCN conferences in our "Prior LCN conferences" section.
Nonetheless, a cordial welcome to our regular guests of LCN — both past
authors/presenters as well as attendees just listening to LCN
The IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks, sponsored by the IEEE
Computer Society, is one of the networking industry's oldest,
continuously running conferences. The LCN focuses on practical,
leading-edge applications and research in the area of computer
networks. It has an informal, workshop-style atmosphere, offering
significant opportunity for speakers, panelists, and attendees to spend
unstructured time together. The papers presented at the LCN are subject
to thorough peer review and are published in the LCN Proceedings
(online available via IEEE Xplore). Attendees come from around the
world, including North America, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. Both
industry and academia are well represented. Topics of paper sessions
include high-speed networking, high-performance protocols, local,
metropolitan, and wide area networks, internetworking, network and
protocol design, wireless networks, routing and switching, multimedia,
networks, networking to/at home and office, security, object oriented
communications, distributed systems, and real-time networks. Keynote
speakers in past years include Fred Baker, Hari Balakrishnan,
Raouf Boutaba, Dave Clark, Alan Crouch, Chip Elliott, Denton Gentry,
Dev Vrat Gupta, Geoff Huston, Bob Ianucci, Raj Jain,
Stephen Kent, Edward Knightly, Peter Newman, Donal O’Mahony,
Craig Partridge, Charles Perkins, Radia Perlman, Larry Roberts,
Howard Salwen, Rich Seifert, David Skellern, Tim Wild, and Stephen Wolff.
In 1998, LCN started to move from its long standing location of
Minneapolis (Minnesota, USA) to different locations all over the world,
including cities in Europe and Australia.
LCN 2009 is the 34th meeting of this conference — and still we have
something new for this year: The conference and its accompanying
workshops will take place in Europe for the third time in LCN history.
The beautiful and culturally rich city of Zürich has been chosen
We are looking forward to an exciting, vibrant assembly in our venue and
again welcome both past and new attendees.
