The 9th International Conference on Broadband Communications, Networks, and Systems

Universidade do Algarve Campus de Gambelas, Faro, Portugal

Past editions: 2013 Limassol, Cyprus; 2010 Athens, Greece; 2009 Madrid, Spain; 2008 London, Great Britain; 2007 Raleigh, North Carolina, US; 2006 San Jose, California, US; 2005 Boston, Massachusetts, US; 2004 San Jose, California, US.


The 5G vision targets a digital and connected landscape, where not only people but devices will be connected to what is referred to as the Internet of Everything (IoE). Real life objects will be smart in nature, and possibly virtual, allowing everyday activities to be performed remotely at the touch of a button in seamless manner. In this context, new technologies are required such as connectivity that can transport information effectively according to the application data. However, for real life objects to come a life, these will be animated through cyber physical technology, that include sensors, actuators and embedded software. Where embedded systems was once constrained to consumer devices, now it comes to the forefront playing a pivotal role in the 5G paradigm, allowing devices to become objects, and objects to form part of an integrated system, where different devices employing diverse data formats and operating systems are no longer barriers.
The scope of this conference will target one of the key drivers for 5G, the IoE world that includes technology advances in cyber physical systems and security. The conference is also interested in novel works applying 5G concepts to space and underwater communications. The conference aims to provide a platform where to disseminate and discuss key innovations and technology trends on this fast evolving arena.


The conference seeks innovative research works in the following areas. However, other research topics not included in this list will also be welcome.

All accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.


Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:

- regular papers up to 10 pages
- short papers up to 6 pages
- poster papers up to 3 pages

Papers should be submitted through EAI Confy, and have to comply with the SPRINGER format (see Author's kit section). Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal.
