Call For Papers
The 10th IPTComm conference is a continuation of a series of successful events devoted to academic and industrial research in IP-enabled communications and services. The goal of IPTComm is to bring together researchers working in emerging communications fields in order to discuss challenges and share results, and ultimately provide a solid foundation to support the progress of new services and communication paradigms. Promoting and addressing the ever changing technological landscape, the conference addresses timely topics related to Mobility, 5G Technologies, Heterogeneous Networking, HOLO Computing, Networking Protocols for Blockchain-enabled  applications, Smart Contracts, Software Defined Networking, Big Data, Information Centric Networks, new web-enabled technologies like WebRTC, Cloud-based real-time media processing, Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M systems. Part of IPTComm's unique focus is the inclusion of novel work addressing the applicability of these technologies to emergency services, and other social services, and to the reliability, security and performance of real-time telecommunications and data services.

IPTComm is hosted by the IIT Real-Time Communications (RTC) Conference, Expo and Hackathon at the Chicago campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). The RTC Conference brings together researchers and educators, standards developers, and technical professionals and executives from the data and telecommunications industry, standards bodies, policy and regulatory institutions in challenging and engaging discussions. The goal of the conference is promoting an open exchange of ideas to lead future development in the rapidly changing field of real-time communications. In addition to hosting the IPTComm Research track, the RTC Conference will have tracks related to Web and Emerging Technologies (WebRTC), Mobility, Cloud, Next Generation Emergency Services, and the Internet of Things (IoT). The demonstrations and presentations in these tracks will complement the material to be presented in the IPTComm track and serve as a source of new ideas and research partners in industry. Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
