Call For Papers

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 17th edition of DRCN in Milan, Italy, on April 19-22, 2021.

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) infrastructures
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 networks
Robustness of multi-domain networks
Survivability in grid and distributed computing
Reliability and resiliency of data center networks

The authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the DRCN 2021 Proceedings.

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS, using the following submission link:


All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference templates that can be downloaded from:

Papers should be maximum 6 page long and minimum 4 page long, including tables, figures and references. Accepted papers longer than 6 pages will be charged for each extra page. Papers cannot be longer than 8 pages.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to DRCN 2021 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. The authors of the most highly‚Äźscored paper will be invited to submit their work to IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management.
