5G PPP projects actively contribute to EuCNC 2016

27 June 2016 - 30 June 2016


EuCNC 2016 (European Conference on Networks and Communications) is the 25th edition of a successful series of technical/scientific conferences, open to the world research community, sponsored also by the European Commission, with a focus that ranges from the physical layer to all types of supported applications. Particular focus in this edition will be on 5G technologies. The 2016 edition will be co-organized by the University of Piraeus and the Institute of Communications and Computer Systems (ICCS).

Aspects of interest include but are not limited to:

Air interfaces (PHY, MAC, RRM, respective developments towards 5G).
Optical communications/networks (access/core technologies, signal processing, components, etc.).
Software defined infrastructures (SDN, NFV, orchestration, etc.).
Management technologies (physical/virtualized resource management, predictive technologies, resilience and security, learning and self-optimization, cognition, architectures and standards).
Converging concepts (IoT/M2M, CPS, embedded and nanoscale systems, cloud/edge/fog computing, OTT, etc.).
Business aspects, vertical sectors, applications/services.
Testbeds and experiments.

The conference will include:

Regular sessions with papers (to appear in IEEEXplore).
One of the largest, for scientific conferences, technology and demonstration exhibition, mainly centered around 5G technologies.
Workshops, special sessions, panels covering technology and business aspects.
Keynote talks from world renowned leaders.
Extended networking opportunities.

A number of 5G PPP projects will contribute to the success of the Conference through:
