14th International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN 2018)

February 19-20, 2018

Orange Gardens, Paris area, France


In conjunction with the 21st Conference on Innovations in Cloud, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2018)

Technically co-sponsored by IEEE ComSoc



****** Paper submission deadline: October 7, 2017 *******



The International Conference on Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN) is a well-known forum for presenting excellent results and new challenges in the field of reliability and availability of communication networks and services. It brings together experts from industry, governments, and academia.

Co-located with ICIN 2018, 2018 DRCN will focus on a wide range of topics of interest within the fields of Reliability, Availability and Serviceability as listed below.
