We warmly welcome you to DCNET 2013 - International Conference on Data Communication Networking, ICE-B 2013 - International Conference on e-Business, and OPTICS 2013 - International Conference on Optical Communication Systems, which are held in Reykjavík, Iceland. The DCNET 2013, ICE-B 2013 and OPTICS 2013 conferences are integrated in the ICETE (International Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications) joint conference, which puts together six complementary conferences, namely DCNET, ICE-B, OPTICS, SECRYPT, SIGMAP and WINSYS, covering a broad range of related fields, including data communication networking, e-business, optical communication systems, security and cryptography, signal processing and multimedia applications, and wireless networks and information systems. Sponsored by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) and co-organized by RU – Reykjavík University, the ICETE joint conference is technically co-sponsored by
Photonics 21 and held in cooperation with ACM SIGMM (Special Interest Group on Multimedia), ACM SIGMIS (Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems) and ACM SIGSAC (Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control) and has OMG (Object Management Group) as an Organizational Sponsor. We would like to emphasize that ICETE 2013 includes four keynote lectures, delivered by experts in their fields, including (alphabetically): David Naccache (École Normale Supérieure, France), Donal O'Mahony (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland), Laurence T. Yang (Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China and St Francis Xavier University, Canada) and Pascal Lorenz (Université de Haute Alsace, France). With its six tracks, we expect it to appeal to a global audience of the engineers, scientists, business practitioners and policy experts, interested in R&D on Telecommunication Systems and Services. All tracks focus on research related to real world applications and rely on contributions not only from academia, but also from industry, business and government with different solutions for end-user applications and enabling technologies, in a diversity of communication environments. The accepted papers demonstrate a number of new and innovative solutions and the vitality of these research areas. ICETE 2013 received 341 papers in total, with contributions from 56 different countries, in all continents, which demonstrate its success and global dimension. To evaluate each submission, a double-blind paper evaluation method was used: each paper was blindly reviewed by at least two experts from the International Program Committee. In fact, most papers had 3 reviews or more. The selection process followed strict criteria in all tracks. As a result only 44 papers were accepted and orally presented at ICETE as full papers (13% of submissions) and 58 as short papers (17% of submissions). Additionally, 75 papers were accepted for poster presentation. With these acceptance ratios, ICETE 2013 continues the tradition of previous ICETE conferences as a distinguished and high-quality conference. Extended versions of selected best papers of the conference will be invited to appear in a post-conference book that will be published by Springer. A successful conference involves more than paper presentations alone. It is also a meeting place, where ideas about new research projects and other ventures are discussed and debated. Therefore, a social event including a conference diner/banquet has been planned for evening of Tuesday, July 30 in order to promote this kind of social networking. We would like to express our thanks to all colleagues involved in supporting this conference. First of all, we thank all authors including those whose papers were not included in the program. We also would like to thank all members of the international program committee and reviewers, who provided an invaluable help with their expertise, dedication and time. We would also like to thank the panelists and invited speakers for their invaluable contribution, in sharing their vision and knowledge. Special thanks go to the leadership, faculty and staff of Reykjavik University (RU) for hosting the conference in its beautiful campus and for providing RU facilities and resources. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the INSTICC team; organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. We hope that the papers accepted and included in the proceedings may be a helpful reference in future works for all those who need to address topics in data communication, e-business and optical communication, as well as other ICETE knowledge areas. Enjoy the program and your stay in Reykjavík.
