                                    NoF 2021

 

           The 12th International Conference on Network of the Future

               October 6-8, 2021 – Coimbra, Portugal – Hybrid event

********************************************************************************

 

The  12th  International Conference on  Network of the Future (NoF) is  inviting

authors to submit original contributions  in the area of Future Internet design,

with emphasis on enabling and cutting-edge technologies from the perspectives of

specification,  design and  analysis related to  network of future architecture,

applications, services, management, implementation, scalability, standardization,

business and legal aspects, just to name a few.

 

The  conference  aims  at  providing  a  forum  for  researchers,  students, and

professionals  to  exchange ideas,  share  their experiences,  and discuss their

research results  around a single-track  of technical sessions  and a series  of

keynote speeches.

 

NoF 2021 will take place at the University of Coimbra in Portugal.

 

The  conference  will  be  designed  and prepared  as a  hybrid  event  allowing

registrants the choice to participate either virtually or in-person. In the case

of perduring traveling restrictions (official or de facto) during the conference

dates due  to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will  be ready to convert the conference

to a fully on-line event.
