46TH ANNUAL IEEE CONFERENCE ON LOCAL COMPUTER NETWORKS
October 4-7, 2021
Deadline approaching: 10 days left for paper registration and submission.
Full virtual event: After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of The 46th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN) into an all-digital conference experience –IEEE LCN 2021 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE LCN 2021 will no longer take place in Edmonton, Canada, but will instead take place virtually.
Registration and submission deadlines have been extended to May 31, 2021.
The IEEE LCN conference is the premier conference on the leading edge of theoretical and practical aspects of computer networking. LCN is a highly interactive conference that enables an effective exchange of results and ideas among researchers, users, and product developers.

The LCN Symposium track provides an opportunity to present early work in-progress that shows exciting promise. The aim of the Symposium is to enable timely discussion of novel ideas and challenging future directions on emerging topics in networking. Submissions in areas such as, but not limited to, the following are encouraged:
- Edge/Fog Computing
- Network Intelligence
- Blockchain Networks
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or a journal. Full Regular papers (maximum eight pages, 10 pt font in IEEE format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (up to four pages) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results on hot topics in a poster session. Symposium papers (maximum six pages) enable timely discussion of novel ideas and challenging future directions on emerging topics in networking. All papers are published in the proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
A limited number of students grants and N2 Women Young Researcher Fellowship awards are considered by the conference each year.
Paper submission: Papers must be registered on EDAS and submitted in PDF format. Detailed submission instructions are available at the conference website.
