Call for Papers EuCNC 2015

June 29 – July 02, 2015



EuCNC 2015 is the 24th edition of a successful series of a technical conference in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by the European Commission. The conference is open to the entire world research community and it focuses on communications systems and networks, reaching applications and services.  While it aims at showcasing the results of projects from successive European R&D programs co-financed by the European Commission, it also targets to bring together researchers from all over the world to present the latest research results in networks and communications and the new developments in this field.
