Call for Papers

SCOPE

The 3rd International Conference on Future Access Enablers of Ubiquitous and Intelligent Infrastructures (FABULOUS 2017) aims to gather prominent researchers from academia and industry, innovators and entrepreneurs in the broad areas of future wireless networks, ambient and assisted living and smart infrastructures in order to interact, exchange ideas, expertise, experience and know-how and discuss the latest results and achievements in the aforementioned topics of interest.

Recent technology convergence within the ICT domain followed by increased user personalization triggers a need for multidisciplinary approaches tackling future networking problems from different perspectives. FABULOUS 2017 will provide a forum for its participants and trigger important discussions towards fulfillment of the conference scope.

Special emphasis will be put on the analysis of practical use-cases and business opportunities in different parts of the world showcasing the social influence of the ICT.

TOPICS

FABULOUS 2017 solicits original and previously unpublished papers targeting research challenges, advances and business opportunities towards a world of smart environments enabled by broadband and pervasive communications.

The evolution of the ubiquitous interconnected digital surroundings offers an increasing wealth of opportunities for novel access and core technologies, novel applications and services and novel communications solutions that shift the paradigm towards user-centric approaches.

We expect original work, not currently under review by another conference or journal, which describes theoretical work validated by simulation or experimental studies. Developed proof-of-concepts and testbeds are of particular interest.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Future access networks:

  • 5G access networks

  • Cloud RANs

  • Self-organizing networks

  • Ad-hoc networking

  • Cognitive radio & Dynamic spectrum access
