Call For Papers

Availability of global internet services affects many lives, businesses, and social activities. Any failure or drop in quality in the provision of access, availability or delivery of information over the Internet or concerned local, or global networks may lead to extensive loss of resources and opportunities which can ultimately result in a deficiency for users, and a significant drop in efficacy at various levels in the economy. In order to ensure a safe, secure and dependable future, networking infrastructures in all of our systems, gateways and networks should be enhanced to work reliably in the presence of all predictable and unpredictable errors and disturbances. Considering the importance of research in this domain, this special issue aims to invite researchers to submit unpublished original works / reviews / case-studies addressing network resiliency and analyze associated problems. The topics include, but are not limited to:

Cost evaluation of network resilience
End-to-end resilience
Energy efficiency in survivable networks
Fault and disruption tolerance evaluation
Future Internet resilience
Green networks resilience
Fault management, control, and monitoring
Management of survivable content-oriented and cloud-ready networks
Methods for measurement, evaluation, or validation of resilience
Modeling different types of failures
Modeling malicious behavior or attacks on networks
Models and algorithms of survivable networks design and modeling
Multilayer networks resilience
Network dependability
Network redundancy optimization
Network reliability vs. economy-related issues
New and emerging threats in cloud computing and content-oriented networks
Optical networks survivability
Optimization issues in resilient networks design
QoS and QoE in reliable communications
Recovery of P2P and overlay systems
Reliable networks performance evaluation
Resilience of data centers
Resilience of wireless-wired communications
Resilient cloud computing architectures/solutions
Resilient content-oriented networks architectures and solutions
Security-related issues in resilient networks design
Simulation/emulation techniques for network resilience
Software-Defined Networks (SDN) for survivable content-oriented and cloud-ready networking
Standardization of network resilience
Survivability of anycast and multicast networks
Survivability of converged services (VoIP, IP-TV, Mobile TV)
Survivability of Content Delivery Networks
Survivability of grid and distributed computing systems
Theory of network resilience
Wireless access networks survivability
Wireless mesh networks survivability
The special issue will invite some excellent works to be extended from 4th International Conference on Advanced Computing, Networking, and Informatics (ICACNI 2016) ( However submission is open to all researchers and submitted articles will solely be judged based on the novelty, significance, and relevance.
