The 9th edition of the Network of the Future (NoF) conference takes place in Poznań, Poland, on November 19-21, 2018. The conference aims at providing a forum for researchers, students, and professionals to exchange ideas, share their experiences, and discuss their research results. The Demo Track of NoF is an opportunity to present novel prototypes and testbeds sharing the main lessons learnt from practical implementations and on-going projects. The single-track nature of NoF guarantees accepted and presented demos a full focus of the conferences attendees.
Areas of interest cover the same areas as the main track of NoF, i.e., Technologies for future Internet, 5G networks, Network protocols and architectures, Quality of service and traffic engineering, Software-defined networking (SDN), Network function virtualization (NFV) and Service Function Chaining (SFC), Cloud computing and networking, Mobile edge and fog computing, Green computing and networking, Content distribution networks, Information-centric networking (ICN), Network intelligence, Cognitive management, Autonomous and selforganized networks, Wireless and mobile networks, Mesh, ad hoc, and sensor networks, Vehicular ad hoc networks and intelligent transportation systems, User-centric networking, Small cells, Femtocell networks, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-machine networking, Social networking, crowdsourcing, cloud services, Mobile Internet applications, Security, trust, and privacy challenges, Blockchain & smart contracts, Cyber-physical systems, E-services and smart cities, Access, metro, backbone and core networks, Optical networks
Content of the accepted demo papers will be demonstrated through a physical demonstration during the conference. The demonstration can be accompanied with a poster. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. We strongly encourage both academia and industry submissions. Demos accompanied with datasets are more than welcome.
Demo Papers must be submitted in a PDF format via EDAS
During the initial submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure that the pdf file and EDAS registration page of the paper have the same list of authors, paper title, and abstract. The authors of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final version.
All submissions should be written in English with a length of three (3) double-column printed pages including figures and references. All papers must be formatted according to the IEEE manuscript template for conference proceedings. At least 1 author of each accepted paper must be registered to the conference as presenter in order to appear in the conference proceedings. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done through EDAS. Please contact the demo chairs if you have any question about submitting your paper.
