However, there are still significant challenges for the theoretical understanding and on the deployment of Internet technologies.
The goal of the Internet technology track is to bring together people from academia and industry and to stimulate discussions on future Internet applications and future wireline and wireless Internet architectures to accelerate their development.
The goal of the sensor networking track is to bring together people from academia and industry who have interest in the area of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks.
Telecommunications and networking policy, regulation and management are an important aspect of deregulation and competition policy formulation.
This implies that future optical systems and networks should be able to support capacities well over Peta bit/s.
However, the current technologies have already begun to reveal several fundamental limits; the electronic speed limit, the Shannon and quantum limit, and the IPbottleneck.We seek papers describing original, previously unpublished research results.The field of mobile and wireless networks is a rapidly evolving area.ITNAC 2019 is an international conference and forum for the presentation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: The field of wireline networking has evolved in recent years and the shift to fibre networks is increasing.The goal of this journal is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to focus on advanced networking concepts and establishing new collaborations in these areas.Authors are solicited to contribute to this journal by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the Computer Networks & Communications.Recent advances in technologies for emerging mobile and wireless networks, including mobile ad hoc networks, vehicular networks, 5G/6G cellular networks, among others, have the potential to enable many new mobile and wireless services and applications that can profoundly impact our lives in positive ways.In the current and the envisioned future Internet, a variety of new technologies and applications is emerging.Novel contributions are presented in the form of keynote speeches by international experts, peer-reviewed technical papers, and posters.ITNAC 2019 seeks to address and capture highly innovative and state-of-the-art research from academia, industry and standardization bodies.
