to FNC 2015 that will be held in conjunction with

The 12th International Conference on Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing (MobiSPC)

The 10th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications (FNC-2015) is a leading international conference for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences from all network and communication technologies related areas. The FNC-2015 will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing (MobiSPC).

FNC-2015 will be held in the city of Belfort. Belfort exists since the Roman period and was official recognized as an autonomous city in 1307. From this date, the city was under the authority of the Burgundy Duchy and Austrian Empire. In 1638, Belfort becomes a French city. After the war of 1871, France looses the Alsace and Lorraine regions, except the city of Belfort for its outstanding defense. The statue of the Lion of Belfort was made by Bartholdi to commemorate this event. Belfort is home to multiple academic institutions, and where visitors can enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment.

FNC-2015 is co-organized & co-hosted by the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard, France. The University was created in 1999 from the fusion of two engineering schools. It is member of the network of the Universities of Technology with Compiègnes, Troyes and Shanghaï (China). The University is located on three campus located in the towns of Belfort, Sévenans and Montbéliard, from North to South (separated by 15 kms each). The campus of Belfort is located in one of the biggest technology and industrial activity park of the town. Basel (in Switzerland) lies 50 kms away to the East, Strasbourg 150 kms to the North-East, Zürich (in Switzerland) 160 kms to the East, Franckfurt (in Germany) 350 kms to the North-East, Lyon lies 300 kms to the South-West, Paris 500 kms to the North-West.

What is it about? Research in networks and communication technologies requires very significant investments of stakeholders for enabling our future networking society. Research in network communication has made several possible innovations having a strong influence on people's lives. Mobile communications and the Internet are two outstanding examples. Future Networks and Communications technologies, including mobile broadband and all optical networks are the key to the ground-breaking inventions to our future technologies. It will enable us to design and build the future communication infrastructure interconnecting and empowering the next generation enabling platforms.

While the technology itself develops faster and faster, the deployment and implementation of a new network infrastructure technology can take up to ten years. The future networks communication research will deliver the next generation of network technologies enabling smart connectivity for all, anywhere, and at any time at the highest speed and efficiency so as to meet the overwhelming demand by today's society. This is why we need to enable a very reliable and dependable future networks and communication to ensure that industries; businesses and consumers can access and use the most advanced content and services they call for.

Target Audience: International Conference on Future Networks and Communications (FNC) is designed for practitioners, researchers, scientists and administrators, in the development arenas. FNC will become the new "system blood" as it aims to provide discussions and simulations in the communication technology at the broad level and broadcasting technology and related technologies at the micro level. Through a set of research papers, using innovative and interactive approach, participants can expect to share a set of research that will prepare them to apply new technologies to their work in teaching, research and educational development amid this rapidly evolving landscape.

There will be opportunities to attend interactive, high quality, peer reviewed sessions, which will provide detailed insights from forward thinkers working in the themes of the conference. The conference will include a number of specialized workshops as well. Additionally there will be an exhibition for both international businesses and markets to display their latest products and services and to undertake a range of networking opportunities.

Scope of FNC: FNC research effort will help achieving a major promise of the emerging technologies such as, ubiquitous access to broadband, supporting vital applications in our daily lives such as health, energy consumption, environment transport, entertainment or education. The scope of FNC is the development of energy-efficient future network infrastructures that support the convergence and interoperability of heterogeneous mobile, wired and wireless broadband network technologies as enablers of the future Internet. This includes but not limited to ubiquitous fast broadband access and ultra-high speed end-to-end optical connectivity, supporting open services and innovative ambient applications. Scope also embraces novel and evolutionary approaches to tackle network architectures, taking due consideration of users and societal needs for success.

Publication: All FNC 2015 accepted papers will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus (www.scopus.com) and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index (http://thomsonreuters.com/conference-proceedings-citation-index/). The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/).
