Call For Papers
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.
