It is our great pleasure to announce the 21st International Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2018), which will be held on 20-22 February 2018 in Paris, France.

ICIN, established in 1989 and praised for the richness of its social networking, is widely recognized for its continuous adaptation to emerging technical trends, attracting numerous industry and academic players.

2018 will be the year of coordinated 5G deployment across all EU Member States, targeting early network introduction, and moving towards commercial large-scale introduction by the end of 2020 at the latest. As such, the main theme for ICIN 2018 is “5G Network Architecture and Solutions: Are We Ready?” which will allow us to explore the maturity and gaps remaining for end-to-end and large-scale 5G technologies deployment.

The conference will thus foster presentation of novel approaches and technical solutions, as well as experimental validation and proofs of concepts. ICIN 2018 will feature various types of sessions such as:

  • Keynote Presentations – industry leaders will be invited to share their visions and experiences on the deployment of new 5G networks and services.
  • Paper Sessions – providing numerous technical sessions with papers presenting the latest advances through peer-reviewed paper sessions.
  • Panel Sessions – allowing controversial and live viewpoints on the challenges and solutions for future networks.
  • Demo Sessions – featuring proofs-of-concepts and early demonstrations showcasing 5G implementations.
  • Workshops – with specialized focus on the latest innovation in network architecture and solutions.
  • Tutorials - offering education for keeping up with the emerging topics essential to today's engineering and technology environment.

We are delighted to organize ICIN 2018 in Paris, France’s unique capital city which has, needless to say, a lot to offer in various ways. The conference will be organized in Orange Gardens, the brand new eco-friendly campus of Orange for Innovations, Technologies and Marketing. In this setting, our objective is to make your participation in ICIN 2018 a memorable experience, from both professional and personal perspectives.

See you and bienvenue to ICIN 2018 in Paris.
