CALL FOR PAPERS

NTMS'2018 is the 9th International Conference on New Technologies, Mobility and Security that will be held from 26 to 28 of February 2018 in Paris.

NTMS'2018  conference is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE COMSOC & IFIP TC6.5 WG.  All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. 

The best papers of the conference will be considered for publication Elsevier  Ad Hoc Networks journal.

NTMS'2018 aims at fostering advances in the areas of New Technologies, Wireless Networks, Mobile Computing, Ad hoc and Ambient Networks, QoS, Network Security and E-commerce, to mention a few, and provides a dynamic forum for researchers, students and professionals to present their state-of-the-art research and development in these interesting areas. The event will be combined with tutorial sessions and workshops. Tutorials will precede the main program, aiming at the dissemination of mature knowledge and technology advances in the field.


Two or more Workshops will immediately follow the main conference, offering the opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of on-going research relevant to following tracks:

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases
