15th International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN 2019)

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 15th edition of DRCN the "International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks" which will take place March 19th to 21st, 2019 in Coimbra, Portugal. 

Since its creation in 1998, DRCN has become over the years a well-established forum for scientists from both industry and academy who have interest in reliability and availability of telecommunication networks, or other resilience-related topics. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from various disciplines, ranging from engineering of survivable equipment and network technologies to network management and monitoring, through methods and models for survivable and robust network design. The DRCN 2019 conference is technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Communications Society.

The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished research results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in the area of design of reliable communication networks. Papers should comply with Authors Guidelines. Paper submission is available via EDAS.

DRCN 2019 will offer timely keynotes by Francisco Fontes from Altice Labs (5G challenges and contributions regarding reliability), by Yvan Pointurier from Nokia Bell Labs (Reliable networking in the Secure Networking for a Data Center Cloud in Europe (SENDATE) project), and the tutorial "Driving towards a reliable edge"  by Xavi Masip (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya). The third keynote will be given by Massimo Tornatore, Politecnico di Milano, Italia & University of California, Davis, USA (title to be announced).

The program at a glance can be found here, and a first draft of the program can be obtained here.

Coimbra is a very beautiful city. The conference location is at the University of Coimbra, which is a World Heritage Site - University of Coimbra, Alta and Sofia.
