What is New
The network of the future is envisioned as an effective, intelligent, adaptive, active and high performance Internet that can enable applications ranging from smart cities to tsunami monitoring. The network of the future will be a network of billions or trillions of entities (devices, machines, things, vehicles) communicating seamlessly with one another and is rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry, and government.
The International Conference on Future Networks Systems and Security aims to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia, practitioners from industry, standardization bodies, and government to meet and exchange ideas on recent research and future directions for the evolution of the future Internet. The technical discussion will be focused on the technology, communications, systems and security aspects of relevance to the network of the future.
Melbourne is the capital and most populous city of the Australian state of Victoria, and the second-most populous city in Australia and Oceania.
Referred to as the "cultural capital" of Australia, the city is home to many of the largest and oldest cultural institutions in the nation such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Royal Exhibition Building. It is also the birthplace of Australian impressionism, Australian rules football, the Australian film and television industries and Australian contemporary dance. More recently, it has been recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature and a global centre for street art, live music and theatre. It is the host city of annual international events such as the Australian Grand Prix, the Australian Open and the Melbourne Cup, and has also hosted the 1956 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Due to it rating highly in entertainment, tourism and sport, as well as education, health care, research and development, the EIU currently ranks it the second most liveable city in the world.
