About ICIN

Since 1989, the ICIN conferences have been bringing together leading Internet and telecom experts from industry, academia and government from across the globe. ICIN is a single-track conference that is both intimate and global. It focuses on leading edge investigations into Internet technologies, from basic networking and cloud services to novel architectures. ICIN uses a rigorous peer-review process and has become an established industry forum to discuss emerging trends in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). It offers an agora for one-on-one discussions and cross-fertilization between participants and leading network visionaries, with the goal of promoting dialogue and ideation about the current and future trends in networking research and development. ICIN conferences are well known for their identification of research challenges and industry trends and their discussion on the impact of cutting-edge technologies on future intelligent and distributed networking, and related computing services. ICIN has an enviable track record of identifying key technologies and services – and analyzing their impact on business models – before they become widely recognized in the industry and government communication sectors. The interdisciplinary approach and the cross-fertilization of ideas are the main ingredients that made ICIN a recognized event in the telecommunications, cloud networking and Internet communities.

For the 2023 edition, ICIN will host an international forum where industry, academia, and standard development organizations will convene to discuss about the emergence and future developments of “Distributed Intelligence across Network and Edge-to-Cloud Continuum.” The increasing pervasiveness of data sources heightened by current massive IoT deployments and by the evolution of highly distributed and heterogeneous computing environments shaping the “edge-to-cloud” continuum, as well as the trends toward highly disaggregated network services fostered by the microservice and serverless models, are only some of the many drivers of an unprecedented level of challenges in network service provisioning. These must be addressed by leveraging intelligence at all levels, including network control and management, resource and service orchestration, data plane computing and communication capabilities, assisted/augmented user-network interaction, sustainable and environment-friendly deployment.

The conference will foster discussion about new ideas and approaches for distributed intelligent networks, their enabling technologies and mechanisms to respond to emerging pervasive data-driven networking and processing, immersive connectivity, security and sustainability. This vision will drive the conference to look beyond the current state of the art and promote advances of networks with data, control and management plane flexibility and programmability that foster reliability, optimality and efficiency for applications and services to address future society and business needs.

Interested authors are invited to submit papers presenting novel technical research, business studies in impact, or mechanisms and new technologies, as well as broader position and visionary papers. Contributions that discuss lessons learnt and best practices, describe practical deployment and implementation experiences as well as demonstrating innovative use-cases are also encouraged.

ICIN 2023 solicits original, unpublished work not currently under review by other conferences or journals. Papers submitted to ICIN 2023 will be assessed based on originality, technical soundness, clarity and interest to a wide audience. All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference template, available for download from the IEEE website:

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS using the following link:
Technical papers can be of two types: full papers or short papers, up to 8 pages and 5 pages respectively, including tables, figures and references. We also call for demo papers of up to 3 pages.
At least one author is required to register, at the full rate, to present accepted papers at the conference and for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
