****** Paper submission deadline: February 28, 2019 *******
In the recent years, the Internet evolution has undergone a remarkable and unstoppable change of trend, rooted on three main pillars, new technologies (cloud computing, SDN, NFV, etc.), broad connectivity (3G/4G, VANET, etc.), and the wide deployment of smart edge devices (smart phones, sensors, wearables, etc.), all setting the main concept for the Internet of Things (IoT), also encompassing scenarios such as smart cities, ITS (intelligent transportation systems), smart homes or e-health.
MED-COM-NET 2019 extends its focus far beyond traditional networking concepts, highlighting new networking concepts related to the mentioned three main pillars developed for the future generation of network and cloud computing technologies. Med-com-net 2019 is willing to accommodate contributions on smart mobile scenarios, focusing on highly relevant developments but also preliminary ideas and concepts on the ICT area, aiming at facilitating the development of new technologies and services with a high societal impact. A special focus will be outlined on vehicular networks.
