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Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or a journal.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. Direct any questions to LCN Program Chair Lyes Khoukhi ([log in to unmask]), LCN Program Co-Chair Sharief Oteafy ([log in to unmask]), or LCN Symposium Chair Florian Tschorsch ([log in to unmask]).
