Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Personal and wearable networks
- Wireless ad hoc & sensor networks
- Information-centric networking
- Embedded networks
- Opportunistic networking
- Delay-tolerant networks
- Cognitive radio networks
- Vehicular networks
- Smart Grid communications
- Underwater sensor networks
- Cyber-physical systems
- Social networks
- Mobile and ubiquitous networking
- Green networking
- Overlay and peer-to-peer networks
- Local-area and metropolitan-area networks
- Storage-area networks
- Routing and transport protocols
- Big Data Networking
- Cloud computing and networking
- Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization
- Internet of Things
- Link technologies
- Adaptive networking applications
- Authentication, authorization, accounting
- Security and privacy
- Cross-layer optimization
- Mobility and Location-dependent services
- Multimedia and real-time communication
- Machine-to-machine communications for smart environments
- Smart Cities
- Network traffic characterization and measurements
- Network management, reliability and QoS
- Performance evaluation of networks
- Test beds for network experiments
- Network coding
- Optical and high-speed access networks
- E-Health networking
- AI-enabled networking

The LCN Symposium track provides an opportunity to present early work in-progress that shows exciting promise. The aim of the Symposium is to enable timely discussion of novel ideas and challenging future directions on emerging topics in networking. Submissions in areas such as, but not limited to, the following are encouraged:

- Edge/Fog Computing
- Network Intelligence
- Blockchain Networks

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or a journal. Full Regular papers (maximum eight pages, 10 pt font in IEEE format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers (up to four pages) are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results on hot topics in a poster session. Symposium papers (maximum six pages) enable timely discussion of novel ideas and challenging future directions on emerging topics in networking. All papers are published in the proceedings and IEEE Xplore.

A limited number of students grants and N2 Women Young Researcher Fellowship awards are considered by the conference each year.

Paper submission: Papers must be registered on EDAS and submitted in PDF format. Detailed submission instructions are available at the conference website. Direct any questions to LCN Program Chair Lyes Khoukhi (Lyes.Khoukhi@ensicaen.fr), LCN Program Co-Chair Sharief Oteafy (soteafy@depaul.edu), or LCN Symposium Chair Florian Tschorsch (florian.tschorsch@tu-berlin.de).
