Advances in Network Systems and Applications (ANSA)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 6 - 9 September, 2020


The rapid development of computer networks including wired and wireless networks observed today is very evolving, dynamic, and multidimensional. On the one hand, network technologies are used in virtually several areas that make human life easier and more comfortable. On the other hand, the rapid need for network deployment brings new challenges in network management and network design, which are reflected in hardware, software, services, and security-related problems. Every day, a new solution in the field of technology and applications of computer networks is released. The ANSA technical session is devoted to emphasizing up-to-date topics in networking systems and technologies by covering problems and challenges related to the intensive multidimensional network developments. This session covers not only the technological side but also the societal and social impacts of network developments. The session is inclusive and spans a wide spectrum of networking-related topics.

The ANSA technical session is a great place to exchange ideas, conduct discussions, introduce new ideas and integrate scientists, practitioners, and scientific communities working in networking research themes.


The ANSA session is seeking original, relevant, and high-quality research papers related, but not limited, to the following topics:

  • Networks architecture
  • Networks management
  • Quality-of-Service enhancement
  • Performance modeling and analysis
  • Fault-tolerant challenges and solutions
  • 5G developments and applications
  • Traffic identification and classification
  • Switching and routing technologies
  • Protocols design and implementation
  • Wireless sensor networks
  • Future Internet architectures
  • Networked operating systems
  • Industrial networks deployment
  • Software-defined networks
  • Self-organizing and self-healing networks
  • Mulimedia in Computer Networks
  • Communication quality and reliability
  • Emerging aspects of networking systems

The session will also solicit papers about current implementation efforts, research results, as well as position statements from industry and academia regarding applications of networking technology.
