Call For Papers
Since its creation in 1998, The International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN) has become over the years a well-established forum for scientists from both industry and academy who have interest in reliability and availability of communication networks, and related resilience topics. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from various disciplines, ranging from engineering of survivable equipment and network technologies to network management and monitoring, through methods and models for survivable and robust network design. As such, DRCN is a well-known forum for presenting excellent results and new challenges in the field of reliable communication networks and services.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

    Resilience in 5G networks
    Availability of 5G networks and services
    Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC)
    Design of resilient and reliable IoT systems
    Resilience in Software-Defined Networking (SDN)
    High-availability for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) infrastructures
    Network dependability in cloud networking
    Dependability of cellular/mobile networks
    Survivability and traffic engineering for optical, IP and multi-layer networks
    Robustness of multi-domain network and protocol architectures
    Reliability of wireless access and mesh networks
    Survivability in grid and distributed computing
    Reliability and resiliency of data center networks
    Recovery of overlay and peer-to-peer networks
    Risk and reliability in the Internet and enterprise networks
    Communication reliability for smart city applications and intelligent transport systems
    Methods for survivable network and systems design, analysis and operation
    Planning and optimization of reliable networks, systems, and services
    Network reliability analysis
    Reliability and robustness of networks optimized and managed based on AI/Machine Learning techniques
    Data analytics and Machine Learning for fault diagnosis
    Network coding techniques to improve resilience
    Decomposition techniques for reliable network optimization
    Service differentiation based on recovery methods
    Simulation techniques for network resilience
    Quality of Experience (QoE) and network service availability assessments
    Reliability requirements and metrics for users, businesses, and the society
    Dependability of networked applications
    Restoration of services under various types of failures
    Application and service-specific survivability techniques
    Robustness of compound services
    Resilience of networked critical infrastructures
    Network robustness to natural disasters
    Robust network design for hostile environments
    Security issues in networks and their relation to survivability
    Network dependability and energy consumption trade-offs
    Network resilience combined with economics and commercial issues
    Standardization of network resilience and reliability
    Public policy issues for survivability and resilience

Paper Submission

The authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the DRCN 2019 Proceedings. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS:

All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference templates that can be downloaded from:

Papers can be of two types: Full papers or Short papers, up to 8 pages and 5 pages respectively, including tables, figures and references. Full papers accepted as short papers will be required to be reduced to 5-pages length.

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 proceedings.
