AIM and SCOPE

The prime aim of conference is to invite the researchers from different domains of Network and Communication Technologies at a single platform to show case their research ideas. Conference will cover the novel ideas from network technologies, algorithms, surveys, communication challenges and future research aspects. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following tracks; Network Technologies, Wireless Networks, IoT & Communication Technologies. Conference will provide total four technical tracks to all authors for their submission. So, each author may identify the most suitable track matching to their article/ research paper for submission of paper. Conference is proposed with the idea of an annual ongoing event to invite researchers on a single platform to exchange their ideas and thoughts. It will definitely evolve as an intellectual asset in long term years after years. Efforts will be put to make this conference as one the best conference in its area in upcoming years. Research papers from each track after the positive blind peer review from at-least two reviewers from three reviewers will be selected for oral presentation during the conference. Selected papers after the further revision will be submitted to Publishing Partner Springer CCIS Series.
