The 11th 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. , architectures, and services.

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 2020 will take place at the LaBRI Lab., Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en Informatique (Bordeaux Computer Research Laboratory). The LaBRI Lab. is located in the campus of the University of Bordeaux.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be prepared using the IEEE 2-column conference style and are limited to 8 pages excluding references (full papers) or 4 pages excluding references (short papers). They must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS.

Papers exceeding page limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. All other papers will sustain a thorough single-blind review process.

All accepted and presented papers will be published on IEEE Xplore At least one author is required to register, at the full rate, to present accepted papers at the conference and for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
