Scope:With the increasing focus on telecommunication networks and applications, including the advent of big data, cloud computing and the Internet of Things, there has been rapid growth in research into telecommunication networks, security and privacy, data mining, distributed and mobile computing, cognitive computing, cloud computing, tools and applications, system performance and data, computer communications and modelling and simulation. The demand for high quality research outcomes has never been greater. ITNAC has been the forum for researchers and engineers to present and discuss topics related to advanced computing and data communication network technologies, services and applications. Novel contributions are presented in the form of keynote speeches by international experts, peer-reviewed technical papers, and posters. ITNAC 2021 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state of the art research from academia, industry and standardization bodies.
