Call For Papers

As the name suggests, the BalkanCom is held annually in a country of the Balkan Peninsula. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to this historical region. The conference addresses the important challenges in the evolving world of Communications and Networking, while at the same time bolstering the potential and talent that is found in this exciting and dynamic region. The first edition of the conference was held in 2017 in Tirana, Albania.
 
The second edition of BalkanCom will take place on June 4-8, 2018 in Podgorica, Montenegro. The theme of the conference, CLOSING THE DIGITAL GAP, is fitting for the Balkan Peninsula, which is in the process of intensive development and needs increased communication and networking in every sense of the word.
