ITNAC Focus Topics

With the increasing focus on modelling and simulation in the fields of cyber-networks, data mining, cyber security, distributed computing, mobile computing, cognitive computing, cloud computing, computing tools, applications, simulation tools, system performance and data and computer communications the demand for high quality research outcomes has never been greater. ITNAC has been the forum for researchers and engineers to present and discuss topics related to advanced computing and data communication network technologies, services and applications.

Novel contributions are presented in the form of keynote speeches by international experts, peer-reviewed technical papers, and posters. ITNAC 2016 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia, industry and standardization bodies.

ITNAC 2016 is an international conference for the presentation of research outcomes covering timely and relevant aspects concerning modelling and simulation of distributed, mobile, cognitive and cloud computing, computer and data communications, local and metropolitan networks, optical, wired and wireless telecommunication networks and applications. Contributions are welcome on all advanced research and particularly (but not limited to) on the following topics:

  • Modelling and Simulation
  • Cyber-Networks, Data Mining and Cyber-Security
  • Distributed, Cognitive and Cloud Computing
  • Local and Metropolitan Networks
  • Community and Enterprise Wi-Fi
  • Data Communications
  • Networks and Management
  • Software Defined Networking
  • Internet Technologies and Applications
  • Network-Based Applications
  • Mobility and Vehicular Networks
  • Mobile Cellular and Wireless Networks
  • Optical Communications
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Power Efficiency and Sustainability

Best Paper Awards

ITNAC 2016 papers will be eligible for conference and session best paper awards. Award recipients will receive a certificate and be able to submit an extended paper to a special issue.

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.
