DRCN 2016
International Workshop on Design of Reliable Communication Networks
March 14-17, 2016 - Paris, France.

Technically co-sponsored by IEEE and IEEE Communications Society

Submission deadline: October 12, 2015 (extended)
Notification of acceptance: January 8, 2015

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers by the deadline October 2, 2015, for publication in the DRCN 2016 Conference Proceedings and for oral presentation during the conference. All submissions should be written in English and should not exceed eight (8) double-column printed pages (10-point font) including figures. All papers must be formatted according to the IEEE manuscript template for conference proceedings (
All submissions must be done through EDAS. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process. Paper submission site:

During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, authors are required to make sure that the pdf file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of authors and paper title, namely add all authors in EDAS during the submission process. The author list of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript. At least 1 author of accepted papers must be registered to the conference as presenter in order to appear in the proceedings.

Please contact if you have any questions about submitting your manuscript.

The conference will take place at Campus Les Cordeliers of the University Pierre and Marie Curie, in the Centre of Paris.
