Technical Sponsors




The Network of the Future (NoF) conference is a premier annual conference that covers advances in the area of Future Internet design, with emphasis on enabling technologies, architectures and services. The conference aims at providing a forum for researchers, students and professionals to exchange ideas, share their experiences, and discuss their research results around a single-track of technical sessions and a series of Tutorials and Workshops.


After the successful editions in Brisbane, Australia (2010), in Paris, France (2011 and 2014), in Tunis, Tunisia (2012), in Pohang, South Korea (2013), in Montreal, Canada (2015), and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2016), the eighth edition of the NoF Conference will be held in London, on November 22-24, 2017.


NoF 2017 will take place in the historical Strand campus of the King's College, among the oldest british universities, funded by George IV in 1829. The Strand campus is located in the heart of London, along the Thames river and a few minutes awalk from the Covent Garden district and the National Gallery. Learn more about the venue here.


NoF 2017 is technically sponsored by the Internet Technical Committee (ITC) of the IEEE Communication Society, and IFIP TC6.
