The European Conference on Universal Multiservice Networks (ECUMN) was born in Colmar, France under the sponsorship of SEE (Société de l'Electricité, de l'Electronique, et des Technologies de l'Information). After the first two successful venues in Colmar in 2000 and in 2002, the 3rd European Conference on Universal Multiservice Networks (ECUMN’2004) is moving to Portugal and will take place at Hotel D. Henrique, in Porto (Oporto) from Monday 25 to Wednesday 27 October, 2004. The conference is jointly organized by Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT) and OE (Ordem dos Engenheiros), with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Portugal Section, EUREL and SEE. The goal of the ECUMN conference is to bring together researchers from the academia and practitioners from the industry in order to address network and service convergence issues. The conference will provide a forum where the academia shall be able to present up-to-date research results and the industry describe emerging technologies and new research problems related to them.
