Call For Papers

The International Conference on Future Communications and Networks (FCN) aims to provide a forum that brings together International researchers from academia and practitioners in industry to meet and exchange ideas and recent research work on all aspects of future communications and networks. The first edition of this event, FCN 2023, will be held in Queenstown, New Zealand, on December 17-20, 2023. The conference will feature keynote speeches, invited talks, and five technical symposia.

FCN 2023 is sponsored by FuTURE Forum, China, and technically co-sponsored by Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand, and IEEE Communications Society. All accepted and presented papers will be included in the FCN 2023 Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality original technical papers for presentation at the conference in the FCN 2023 proceedings. All papers for technical symposia should be submitted via EDAS (
