The 2011 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control will be held in Delft, the Netherlands. The main theme of the conference is “Next Generation Infrastructures”. Infrastructures are the backbone of the economy and society. Especially the network bound infrastructures operated by public utilities and network industries provide essential services that are enabling for almost every economic and social activity. The crucial role of the infrastructure networks for energy and water supply, transportation of people and goods, and provision of telecommunication and information services, culminating into a myriad of value added services, makes them increasingly specialized and difficult to design, operate and manage. This conference will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions in the area of next generation infrastructures. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, funding agency panel sessions, interactive sessions, and invited/special sessions. Contributions are expected from academia, industry, and government agencies.
