Call for Papers

In the last decade, the growth of Internet and other web technologies driven fast developments of various networking technologies that are becoming primary parts of our daily lives. The wealth of exiting algorithms and architectures for parallel and distributed computing combined with the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, resulted is a fast growing adoption of future networks and highly decentralised systems. Future networks and distributed systems research is an interdisciplinary research filed involving academic researchers in computer science, communication engineering, physics and social and behaviour studies, as well as information technology industry consultants and practitioners to support multiservice, multimedia services convergence, service ubiquity and context awareness, mobility, fixed-mobile convergence, variable connectivity, quality of service , spontaneous and autonomic networking and other capabilities.

The call for papers can be downloaded as a PDF file as well.

Online Submition

Easy Chair

All submissions must be made on-line from the online submission system hosted by EasyChair Conference System. Email submissions will NOT be accepted. You need to have an EasyChair account to submit your papers. If you need to edit any author information or resubmit your paper, it may be done up until the submission deadline. Use the author account you created during initial submission, to edit or resubmit. Please read the Submission Instructions before submitting your paper to the system.

Accepted Papers

Each paper must deal with original and unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (copyright problems fall entirely under responsibility of the authors). Each paper will be reviewed by at least three experts in the relevant field based on its originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. ensuring the publication of only top quality contributions. When a paper is accepted at least one of the authors has to register to the conference and deliver the related talk.
