23rd Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2020)

The ICIN conference, established in 1989 and praised for the high quality of its technical program and richness of its social networking, is also recognized for its continuous adaptation to emerging technical trends.

The year 2020 will be a keystone in the evolution toward the networks of the future, with the first commercial deployments of large-scale 5G infrastructures, the increasing interest in network intelligence and machine learning techniques applied to network management and orchestration, the progress of precision networking technologies toward low-latency services, and the end of the Horizon 2020 research framework program in Europe superseded by the next Horizon Europe.

In this scenario and considering the many challenges that the aforementioned paradigms and technologies will bring, ICIN 2020 will focus on:

“Beyond 5G: building network sense”

The conference will foster new ideas and novel approaches to future service delivery in a smart network environment, able to show what could be qualified as sense, “a sane and realistic attitude to situations and problems”, according to Oxford Dictionary. With this vision, the conference will look beyond the current state of the art and promote the advances of network management and orchestration technologies.

ICIN 2020 aims at providing an international forum for researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, network operators, and service providers to discuss and address the challenges posed by innovation in clouds, Internet and networks. Interested authors are invited to submit papers presenting novel technical studies as well as broader position and visionary papers. Contributions that discuss lessons learnt and best practices, describe practical deployment and implementation experiences, and demonstrate innovative use-cases are especially encouraged.

We are looking forward to your submission at ICIN 2020
