9th EAI International Conference on Mobile Networks and Management

December 13–15, 2017 | Melbourne, Australia

Call for Papers

MNN 2017, the Annual EAI International Conference on Mobile Networks and Management, is sponsored by the European Alliance for Innovation. It invites researchers to submit papers addressing issues in the area of mobile computing, wireless networking and management. Papers reporting experimental and empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results (including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.



Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: EI, ISI Thomson's Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).



Authors are encouraged to submit full papers to the following topics (but not limited to):

• Multi-access networks and resource management

• Mobile network management and virtualization

• Future 5G network architecture

• Operation and management of virtualized network functions

• Mechanisms leveraging the interplay between network functions, virtualization and software defined networking

• Joint management and orchestration of cloud and networking infrastructure

• Future Internet architectures with smart objects

• Opportunistic networks

• Energy efficiency for multi-access networks

• Emerging multimedia services, service enablers and management

• IEEE and 3GPP management standards and enabling technologies

• Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations

• Service and application management platforms

• Autonomic network monitoring and management

• Architecture and design of new services with smart objects

• Energy-efficient, self-organized access and routing schemes for smart object


• Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks

• Management of wireless cognitive networks

• Traffic models and analysis for future networks

• Big data


Special Session on Trust, Privacy and Security in Internet of Things and Cloud

Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming pervasive and is a main driver for smart cities.  Due to the large data generated in the environment of the IoT, many new research challenges related to trust, privacy and security are emerging. Although significant research efforts have been made on IoT and cloud, issues related to the linkage between IoT and Cloud have been less addressed.  This special session will call for papers dedicated to Trust, Privacy and Security in IoT and Cloud. Research works on the issues related to the connection between IoT and Cloud are strongly encouraged.


Paper Submission

We encourage submissions of high-quality technical papers reporting original research that has not been previously published, and is not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should not exceed 14 pages in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) format.

LNICST templates are available here: AUTHOR’S KIT

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member to ensure high quality and relevance to the topics of the conference. All accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of LNICST series. The proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
