The 2018 International Symposium on Networks, Computers and Communications (ISNCC 2018)

19-21 June 2018

Rome, Italy

Welcome to ISNCC’18 !

The International Symposium on Networks, Computers and Communications (ISNCC) will be held in the beautiful city of Rome, Italy from 19-21 June 2018, under the patronage of the Italian Space Agency (ASI).  

ISNCC 2018 cover theoretical and practical aspects related to Information Systems, Communication Networks and Computing Technologies. This year, the multi-thematic program  focuses on the major future scientific issues for the following scientific topics, divided into eight main tracks (details in “Call For Papers” page):

  • Wireless and Mobile Communications & Networking
  • Satellite Communications and Networking
  • Antenna Systems, Propagation and RF Design
  • 5G Evolution and Implementation
  • Cloud, Grid and Social Computing & Networking
  • Internet of Everything, Data Analytics and Smart Cities
  • Smart Communications Systems
  • Trust, Security and Privacy

A seperated Track called “PhD Student Forum” provides an opportunity for research students to showcase their original yet incomplete ‘work-in-progress’ (more details in “Ph.D. Student Forum”).

Also, an “Industrial” track is foreseen to give particular visibility and emphasis of applied research and on industrial developments. For this track to prepare full paper is not mandatory but the same slot for presentation at the conference will be guaranteed. The submission procedure through EDAS is the same of the scientific track but just an abstract could be accepted (more details in “Industrial Forum“).

The ISNCC 2018 edition will propose a set of technical presentations made by internationally recognized researchers and experts. Young researchers participating in this event will then have the opportunity to present their work and obtain feedback during dedicated sessions intended to further facilitate interactions and the exchange of ideas.

The target audience of ISNCC ranges from Senior researchers to Ph.D. and Master students. Researchers and engineers from companies are welcome, and may greatly benefit from the broad vision provided by this symposium.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

ISNCC is indexed in IEEE Xplore, Scopus, DBLP and Thomson Reuters (Web of Science)

Important Information

APRE, which is the Italian agency of the national contact points of European programs, will be present at the conference to provide plenary presentations and on demand information about international funding programs, so that it could be also an opportunity for networking activities.

A number of small meeting rooms will be available during the conference days (but also in the days before or after it) for networking activities or for other needed small meetings.
