The Fifteenth International Conference on Networks (ICN 2016), held between February 21- 25, 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal continued a series of events focusing on the advances in the field of networks.
ICN 2016 welcomed technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions, short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.
The conference had the following tracks:
Performance evaluation, tools, simulation
Communications security, reliability, availability
Software Defined Networks and Network Functions Virtualization
Internet of Things, cellular cognitive networks
The conference also featured the following symposium:
• SOFTNETWORKING 2016, The International Symposium on Advances in Software Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization
We take here the opportunity to warmly thank all the members of the ICN 2016 technical program committee, as well as the numerous reviewers. The creation of such a high quality conference program would not have been possible without their involvement. We also kindly thank all the authors that dedicated much of their time and effort to contribute to ICN 2016. We truly believe that, thanks to all these efforts, the final conference program consisted of top quality contributions.
Also, this event could not have been a reality without the support of many individuals, organizations and sponsors. We also gratefully thank the members of the ICN 2016 organizing committee for their help in handling the logistics and for their work that made this professional meeting a success.
We hope ICN 2016 was a successful international forum for the exchange of ideas and results between academia and industry and to promote further progress in the field of networks. We also hope that Lisbon, Portugal, provided a pleasant environment during the conference and everyone saved some time to enjoy the beauty of the city.
