Welcome from the Chairs of NoF 2024
On behalf of the Network of the Future (NoF) Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to warmly introduce you to the 15th International Conference on Network of the Future (NoF 2024), that is taking place in Castelldefels (near Barcelona), Spain, on October 2-4, 2024.
We are delighted to welcome you in Castelldefels, a calm, sunny, and tourist-friendly destination.
Since its creation in 2010, NoF has been a premier annual conference that covers advances in the area of Future Internet design, with emphasis on enabling technologies, architectures and services.
In recent years, networks have been witnessing a significant transformation that is resulting in new ways to address the deployment of applications and services in a digital society, today emphasized by the early deployment of 5G networks and services. Major trends like softwarization leveraged by Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Cloud and Edge Computing, as well as the introduction of new radio techniques, are shaping the evolution in the Telecom and ICT industries. Additionally, initial research on 6G networks and technologies has already been ongoing. Besides technological advances, networking further benefits from the growing introduction of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning techniques that are expected to alleviate complexity while providing smart and reliable network operations.
Interested authors are invited to submit papers presenting novel technical research, business studies in impact, or mechanisms and new technologies, as well as broader position and visionary papers.
We are looking forward for your contribution to a successful conference on the network of the future!
