NoF 2021 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc.

Since its creation in 2010, NoF has been a premier annual conference that covers advances in the area
of Future Internet design, with emphasis on enabling technologies, architectures and services.
NoF 2021 will be held fully on-line as a virtual conference on October 6-8, 2021.

The conference will address major trends like softwarization leveraged by Software-Defined Networking
(SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Cloud & Edge Computing, and the introduction of new
radio techniques are shaping the evolution in the Telecom and ICT industries, today emphasized by the
early ,deployment of ,5G networks ,and services. ,Additionally, ,initial research on ,6G networks and
technologies have already been started. Accordingly, besides technological advances, NoF 2021 will
