NoF 2020

The 11th International Conference on Network of the Future

October 12-14, 2020 – Bordeaux, France


The 11th International Conference on Network of the Future (NoF) is inviting

authors to submit original contributions in the area of Future Internet design,

with emphasis on enabling and cutting-edge technologies from the perspectives of

specification, design and analysis related to network of future architecture,

applications, services, management, implementation, scalability, standardization,

business and legal aspects, just to name a few.

The conference aims at providing a forum for researchers, students, and

professionals to exchange ideas, share their experiences, and discuss their

research results around a single-track of technical sessions and a series of

keynote speeches.

NoF 2020 will take place at the LaBRI Lab, Laboratoire Bordelais de Recherche en

Informatique (Bordeaux Computer Research Laboratory). LaBRI is located in the

campus of the University of Bordeaux.
