DRCN 2020

16th International Conference on Design of Reliable Communication Networks

March 25-27, 2020 – Milan, Italy


Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE ComSoc


Submission deadline: October 20, 2019

Notification of acceptance: December 15, 2019

Camera Ready Papers: Jan 7, 2020


Since its creation in 1998, the International Conference on the Design of

Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN) has become over the years a well-

established forum for scientists from both industry and academy who have

interest in reliability and availability of communication networks, and

related resilience topics. The aim of the conference is to bring together

people from various disciplines, ranging from engineering of survivable

equipment and network technologies to network management and monitoring,

through methods and models for survivable and robust network design. As

such, DRCN is a well-known forum for presenting excellent results and new

challenges in the field of reliable communication networks and services.

We are pleased to invite you to contribute and participate in the 16th

edition of DRCN in Milan, Italy, on March 25-27, 2020.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

* Resilience in 5G networks and services

* Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC)

* Design of resilient and reliable IoT systems

* Resilience in Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

* Secure and reliable quantum communication

* Resilience in satellite communication networks

* High-availability for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) infra-


* Network dependability in cloud networking

* Dependability and reliability of wireless/cellular/mobile networks

* Resilience in FSO/VLC communications

* Survivability and traffic engineering for optical, IP and multi-layer


* Robustness of multi-domain networks

* Survivability in grid and distributed computing

* Reliability and resiliency of data center networks

* Recovery of overlay and peer-to-peer networks

* Risk and reliability in the Internet and enterprise networks

* Communication reliability for smart city applications and intelligent

transport systems

* Methods for survivable network and systems design, analysis & operation

* Planning and optimization of reliable networks, systems, and services

* Network reliability analysis

* Reliability and robustness of networks optimized and managed-based on

AI/Machine Learning techniques

* Data analytics and Machine Learning for fault diagnosis

* Network coding techniques to improve resilience

* Service differentiation based on recovery methods

* Simulation techniques for network resilience

* Quality of Experience (QoE) and network service availability assessment

* Reliability requirements and metrics for users, businesses, and society

* Robustness of compound services

* Resilience of networked critical infrastructures

* Network robustness to natural disasters

* Robust network design for hostile environments

* Security issues in networks and their relation to survivability

* Network dependability and energy consumption trade-offs

* Network resilience combined with economics and commercial issues

* Standardization of network resilience and reliability

* Public policy issues for survivability and resilience


Authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers for

presentation at the conference and publication in the DRCN 2020 Pro-

ceedings. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all

submissions must be done electronically through EDAS:


All submissions must be written in English and use the standard IEEE two-

column conference templates that can be downloaded from:


Papers can be of two types: Full papers or Short papers, up to 8 pages

and 5 pages respectively, including tables, figures and references. Full

papers accepted as short papers will be required to be reduced to 5-page


At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to DRCN

2020 to have his/her paper published in the conference proceedings. The

paper must be presented at the conference by one author to be submitted

for publication in IEEE Xplore.
