DRCN 2014 : Design of Reliable Communication Networks


Conference Series : Design of Reliable Communication Networks
When Apr 1, 2014 - Apr 3, 2014
Where Ghent, Belgium
Submission Deadline Oct 18, 2013
Final Version Due Jan 31, 2014

Call For Papers

DRCN is a well-established annual forum for scientists, engineers, designers and planners from industry, government and academia who have interests in the reliability and availability of communication networks and services. The conference covers topics from equipment and technology for survivability to network management & public policy, through theory and techniques for survivable and robust networks and application design. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from industry, government and academia in those disciplines in a lively forum.

A special issue in a top journal related to conference topics is being negotiated by the organizing committee.

The 10th DRCN edition will be held in the glorious city of Ghent, Belgium. The conference will be enriched by a set of tutorials and invited talks. We seek papers that address theoretical, experimental, systems-related and regulatory issues in the area of dependability and survivability of communication networks, end-systems and infrastructure.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following areas:

Network design and operational aspects:

Survivability of optical and multi-layer networks
Recovery techniques for IP routing and Layer-2 switching
Resilient wired access networks
Reliability of wireless access and mesh networking
Dependability of mobile networks
Network reliability and dependability in cloud computing and grid networks
Reliability and recovery of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Network (Function) Virtualization (NFV)
Self-healing and autonomic networks
Survivability Content Delivery Networks (CDN) and Information-Centric Networks (ICN)
Fault management, monitoring, and control
Resilience of multi-domain connections in the Internet
Management of survivable networks
Green Networking and reliability

Theory and modelling:

Network reliability analysis
Methods and theory for survivable network and systems design, analysis and operation (including scalability and complexity)
Planning and optimization of reliable networks, systems, and services
Simulation techniques for network resilience

Resiliency of network services:

Reliability requirements and metrics for individual users, businesses, and the society
Restoration of services under various types of failures
Service differentiation based on recovery methods
Dependability of networked applications
Recovery of overlay and peer-to-peer networks
Application and service-specific survivability techniques
Reliability and resilience of data centre networks
Robustness of compound services

Broad context:

Communication networks as an element of critical infrastructures
Public policy issues for survivability and resilience
Standardization of network resilience and reliability
Network resilience combined with economics and commercial issues
Quality of experience and network survivability
Security issues in networks and their relation to survivability
Dependability and energy consumption trade-offs
Risk and reliability in the Internet and enterprise networks
New and emerging threats
