The 13th International Conference on Network of the Future
October 5-7, 2022 – Ghent, Belgium
On-site event

- NoF 2022 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc.
- All accepted & presented papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.


*** Paper submission deadline: May 15, 2022 ***

The 13th 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 and cutting-edge technologies from the perspectives of
specification, design and analysis related to network of future architecture,
applications, services, management, implementation, scalability, standardization,
business and legal aspects, just to name a few.

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.

NoF 2022 will be held at "Het Pand" in the historical Center of Ghent, Belgium.

As the Covid-19 pandemics appears to be under control, the conference will be
designed and prepared as an on-site event allowing registrants to participate
in-person again. In the case the situation is worsening again, we will be ready
to convert the conference as an hybrid or a fully on-line event.

*** Submission guidelines ***
Authors are invited to submit original contributions that have not been
published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be prepared
using the IEEE 2-column conference style and are limited to 9 pages including
references (full papers) or 6 pages including references (short papers). They
must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS.

Papers exceeding page limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers
will be rejected without further review. All other papers will sustain a thorough
single-blind review process.
