Call For Papers

The Second European Network Intelligence Conference
ENIC 2015 September 21-22, 2015, Karlskrona, Sweden

All speakers will be exempted from the conference fee (one per accepted submission)!

We are more and more surrounded by different kinds of networks, interconnected systems and vast amounts of interrelated data. Various web collaborative portals, blogs, wikis, video publishing services (youtube), ecommerce sites (eBay), social networking sites (Facebook) sensor networks, smart phones users exchanging multimedia as well as IT systems collaborating with one another in most organisations are good example of networks that require new adequate analytical methods.
The aim of the annual European Network Intelligence Conference (ENIC) is to create an open premier forum to exchange knowledge and experience as well as to discuss recent advances, theories, and techniques related to both various types of networks and intelligent analytical computational methods.
Every edition of the conference will focus on only few selected more specific scientific domains - tracks. The second event will include two such tracks: Social network and social media analysis, and Intelligent Methods for Optimization of Communication Networks. The tracks will bring together the research groups from the specified disciplines, along with many of the e-commerce companies interested in applications of the intelligent tools in their products. The track will enable researchers and practitioners to present their latest research and identify challenges in recommendation systems. The special interest will be focused on the design cooperation platform for academia and industry.
Initially, the conference will be led and hosted by the ENGINE Centre and partnering organisations and substantially supported by the Seventh Framework Programme, however, we hope to create a wider active ENIC community for the future
Since ENIC 2015 is sponsored by the ENGINE Project, authors of up to 50 best accepted papers will be registered free of charge; one author per paper. The ENGINE Centre will cover their participation, proceedings costs, coffee brakes and banquet but only if they will present in person their accepted paper during the conference. It does not include travel and accommodation costs.

Recent developments in communications and networking technologies have reached unprecedented level, however still many new challenges and opportunities are emerging. Starting from the physical layer with new approaches of Elastic Optical Network, 5G mobile, MANET and VANET technologies up to recent ideas in higher network layers including software defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) trigger the need to deploy new intelligent methods to optimize the network resources. Among the most vital optimization goals for communication networks of various types, the following must be enumerated: OPEX costs, CAPEX costs, energy efficiency, scalability, delay, survivability, security.
To ensure complete coverage of the advances in field, the Intelligent Methods for Optimization of Communication Networks track solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topics:
• Metaheuristics for optimization of communication networks including tabu search, simulated annealing, evolutionary algorithms, swarm optimization, ant algorithms, GRASP, artificial bee colony

• Optical network architectures, design and performance evaluation
• Traffic grooming
• Optical networks in support of Grid, Cloud Computing and Storage
• Mobile networking, mobility and nomadicity
• 5G networks
• Internet of Things (IoT)
• Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications
• Sensor networks
• Mobile ad hoc network (MANETs)
• Wireless mesh networks
• Smart grids
• Next-Generation access networking
• Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs)
• Delay tolerant networks
• Congestion and admission control
• Future Internet and next-generation networking architectures

Accepted and presented papers will be included in the ENIC 2015 Conference Proceedings and forwarded for inclusion in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), IEEE Xplore and the ACM Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be submitted for Web of Science indexing as well as EI indexing through INSPEC by IEEE.

Submission Instruction
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics from both tracks are solicited. The papers will reviewed by a minimum of two subject experts – Programme Committee members. Full paper manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8 pages using the IEEE CPS two-column template. Papers should be submitted to the Conference Web site: with additional selection of the right tracks. IEEE will retain the copyright for accepted papers and the IEEE copyright form found at will therefore have to be completed. Papers will be accepted for the conference based on the reviewers comments on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. If the paper is accepted, the paper will appear in the proceedings of the conference if one author presents the paper at the conference and at least one author register as a full conference participant.
