The 13th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications

July 13-15, 2018

Gran Canaria, Spain



Future Networks and Communications (FNC) research effort will help
achieving a major promise of the emerging technologies such as, ubiquitous
access to broadband, supporting vital applications in our daily lives such
as health, energy consumption, environment transport, entertainment or
education. The scope of FNC is the development of energy-efficient future
network infrastructures that support the convergence and interoperability
of heterogeneous mobile, wired and wireless broadband network technologies
as enablers of the future Internet. This includes but not limited to
ubiquitous fast broadband access and ultra-high speed end-to-end optical
connectivity, supporting open services and innovative ambient applications.
Scope also embraces novel and evolutionary approaches to tackle network
architectures, taking due consideration of users and societal needs for
