21st Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2018)

ICIN 2018 will be held 20-22 February 2018 at Orange Gardens premises near Paris, France. The ICIN conference, established in 1989 and praised for the richness of its social networking, is also recognized for its continuous adaptation to emerging technical trends.

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 the main theme for ICIN 2018, “5G Network Architecture and Solutions: are we ready?” will explore the maturity and gaps remaining for end-to-end and large scale 5G technologies deployment. The conference will foster presentation of novel approaches and technical solutions, as well as experimental validation and proof of concepts.
