It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 9th IEEE International Conference on Networks of the Future (NoF 2018), that will be held on November 19-21, 2018 in Poznań, Poland, one of the most dynamic cities in Europe.
Networks are currently witnessing a significant transformation that is resulting in new ways to address the deployment of applications and services in a digital society. Major trends like softwarization leveraged by Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Cloud & Edge Computing, and the introduction of new radio techniques are shaping the evolution in the Telecom and ICT industries, today emphasized by the current developments regarding 5G networks and services. Other paradigms like Information-centric networking are also impacting the way content can be delivered to customers. As such, besides technological advances, networking requires further research from architecture to operations, that would alleviate complexity and allow smart and reliable automation of service delivery.
NoF 2018 will address the challenges and issues raised in the design of future networks in all their dimensions, offering to its attendees a variety of attractive sessions, including technical presentations, keynotes, demonstrations and panel discussions.
The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to explore the opportunities and challenges of networks of the future for industry, academia, governments and enterprises. The single-track structure of the conference guarantees appropriate presentation of the technical papers and demos.
Being located in the Center of Europe, Poznań is certainly the right place to organize NoF 2018. The city has a long history from the early rise of Poland, and has been at crossroads of many economical relationships for centuries. It has also undergone major transformation towards the digital world, hosting many ICT companies, especially because of its famous universities.
The conference will take place in Poznań University of Technology, located right in the center of the city, within walking distance from the train station and offering quick access to the medium-sized airport, just a few miles away.
We are happy to organize NoF 2018 in Poznań, Poland and we are looking forward to your contribution.
