With the increasing number of emerging robust networks, the challenges to design new networking protocols, techniques, and applications are never ending. With the imminent deployment of 4G and 5G on the horizon, the demand for better service and quality has never been greater. ITNAC is a leading forum for researchers and engineers to present and discuss topics related to advanced telecommunication network technologies, services and applications.

ITNAC 2020 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia, communications industry and standardisation bodies that covers applications for and analysis of distributed, mobile, cognitive and cloud computing, computer and data communications, local and metropolitan networks, optical, wired and wireless telecommunication networks and applications.

Contributions are welcome on all advanced research and particularly (but not limited to) the following topics:
