NoF 2024

The 15th International Conference on Network of the Future
October 2-4, 2024 – Castelldefels (Barcelona), Spain


NoF 2024 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc and IEEE France Section
All accepted and presented papers will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore.

*** Paper submission deadline: May 31, 2024 (Firm )***

Internet has witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, driven by high-performance computing, programmable network equipment, and the emergence of new generation services.

The 15th 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, programmability, sustainability, scalability, security 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 2024 will take place in the beautiful town of Castelldefels in Spain, a cozy and relaxing beach town famous for its large 5 km coastline, and located only few kilometers south of Barcelona.
