* Cybersecurity: challenges and solutions
* OTT services and impact on service providers
* Vehicular and 5G networks
* Cloud Networking
* Network Data Analytics
* Smart cites
* Internet of Things
* Peer to peer networking
* New networking paradigms

- Economic Aspects of Network Planning and Operations
* CAPEX vs. OPEX tradeoffs
* Cost modeling and pricing
* Dynamic tariff optimization
* Infrastructure and spectrum sharing
* Virtual network operators
* Network neutrality
* Frequency management

- Traffic Measurements and Modeling
* Multiservice traffic measurement, analysis, characterization, modeling, and simulation
* Data collection and analysis
* Methods / tools for traffic measurements and prediction
* Network monitoring and anomaly detection

- Network Planning Support Processes
* Methods and Tools
* Business planning
* Multilayer planning process
* Planning of optical, access, NGN, LTE+, and 5G networks
