Dear Colleagues,

We are currently welcoming papers for the International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS) which is being held at the Middle East University, Amman, Jordan from 26th-27th June 2018.

Special Issues
1. "Sensors and Actuators: Security Threats and Countermeasures" in the Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks
2. "Real-time Behavioral Monitoring in IoT Applications using Big Data Analytics" in the concurrency and computation practice and experience

1. International Workshop on Smart Technologies (WOSTech),


Call for Papers
In the last decade, the growth of Internet and other web technologies driven fast developments of various networking technologies that are becoming primary parts of our daily lives. The wealth of exiting algorithms and architectures for parallel and distributed computing combined with the proliferation of future wireless technologies and electronic devices, resulted is a fast growing adoption of future networks and highly decentralised systems. Future networks and distributed systems research is an interdisciplinary research filed involving academic researchers in computer science, communication engineering, physics and social and behaviour studies, as well as information technology industry consultants and practitioners to support multiservice, multimedia services convergence, service ubiquity and context awareness, mobility, fixed-mobile convergence, variable connectivity, quality of service , spontaneous and autonomic networking and other capabilities.

The 2018 International Conference on Future Networks and Distributed Systems (ICFNDS 2018) aims at addressing advances in research on distributed systems and future networks, covering topics ranging from enabling technologies to emerging applications and industrial experiences. ICFNDS aims to encourage both researchers and practitioners to exchange and share their experiences and recent studies in an interactive atmosphere. The 2017 ICFNDS meeting was held at The M?ller Centre, Churchill College, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.
