Dear Colleagues,

We are currently welcoming papers for the International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS) which is being held at the Middle East University, Amman, Jordan from 26th-27th June 2018.


Special Issues


1. "Special Issue Sensors and Actuators in Smart Cities" in the Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks

2. "Special Issue on Real-time Behavioral Monitoring in IoT Applications using Big Data Analytics" in the concurrency and computation practice and experience




1. International Workshop on Smart Technologies (WOSTech),


Call for Papers


In the last decade, the growth of Internet and other web technologies driven fast developments of various networking technologies that are becoming primary parts of our daily lives. The wealth of exiting algorithms and architectures for parallel and distributed computing combined with the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, resulted is a fast growing adoption of future networks and highly decentralised systems. Future networks and distributed systems research is an interdisciplinary research filed involving academic researchers in computer science, communication engineering, physics and social and behaviour studies, as well as information technology industry consultants and practitioners to support multiservice, multimedia services convergence, service ubiquity and context awareness, mobility, fixed-mobile convergence, variable connectivity, quality of service , spontaneous and autonomic networking and other capabilities.

The 2018 International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS 2018) aims at addressing advances in research on distributed systems and future networks, covering topics ranging from enabling technologies to emerging applications and industrial experiences. ICFNDS aims to encourage both researchers and practitioners to exchange and share their experiences and recent studies in an interactive atmosphere. The 2017 ICFNDS meeting was held at The Møller Centre, Churchill College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.

Authors are solicited to contribute original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of future networking and distributed systems. Submitted articles must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication.

The ICFNDS 2018 proceedings will be published as part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by the ACM and available online from the ACM Digital Library.
