The IEEE International Telecommunication Networks and Application
Conference ITNAC 2016
December 7-9, 2016 in Dunedin, New Zealand


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
(formerly known as ATNAC) has been a leading forum for researchers and
engineers to present and discuss topics related to advanced
telecommunication network technologies, services and applications.

ITNAC 2016 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.

Submitted manuscripts should be written in English conforming to IEEE
conference proceedings format (template available at
We invite the following two types of submissions:
Full Papers (6 pages complementary, and up to 8 pages with over length
charge) and Short Papers (3 pages complementary and up to 4 pages with over
length charge).

All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Papers
must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EDAS:


Accepted papers from this conference will be published by the IEEE Computer
Society in IEEE proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex). Distinguished
papers, after further revisions, will be considered for possible
publication in SCI & EI indexed special issues of prestigious international
journals. By submitting a paper to the conference, authors assure that if
the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference and
present the paper.

ITNAC 2016 is pleased to announce there will be a number of NZD$600 travel
assistance grants. To apply for a travel assistance grant please send an
application letter detailing how the travel assistance grant is to be used
plus a letter of support from your supervisor to the ITNAC committee.

Software Defined Networking Workshop —
A workshop on Software Defined Networking (SDN) will be held in conjunction
with ITNAC 2016. The workshop will include the opportunity to learn about
SDN, carry out hands on SDN design and network configuration exercises
using a hardware-based SDN testbed, and presentation of SDN research and
industry case study papers.

Modelling and Simulation Workshop -
A workshop on the latest modelling and simulation tools and methodologies
will be held in conjunction with ITNAC 2016. The workshop will include the
opportunity to learn about tools, carry out hands on simulation and
modelling design exercises, and presentation of research and industry case
study papers.
