Call for Papers

The 10th International Conference on Network of the Future (NoF) is inviting authors to submit original contributions in the area of Future Internet design, with emphasis on enabling technologies, architectures, and services. The conference aims at providing a forum for researchers, students, and professionals to exchange ideas, share their experiences, and discuss their research results around a single-track of technical sessions and a series of keynote speeches. Papers accepted and presented at NoF 2019 will be published open access on the conference Web site. Authors of selected papers accepted for publication in the NoF 2019 proceedings will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers to the Wiley’s International Journal of Network management. After the successful editions in Brisbane, Australia (2010), in Paris, France (2011 and 2014), in Tunis, Tunisia (2012), in Pohang, South Korea (2013), in Montreal, Canada (2015), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2016), London, United Kingdom (2017), and Poznan, Poland (2018),  the tenth edition of the NoF Conference will be held in Rome. NoF 2019 will take place in the Engineering Faculty campus of the University of Rome La Sapienza, one of the oldest universities in the world, founded by Pope Boniface VIII in 1303. The Engineering Faculty campus is located in the heart of Rome, few steps from Colosseum and The Imperial Fora.
