Call For Papers

There is growing interest in the convergence of wired networks and wireless access systems/networks. In particular, developments in wireless communication technologies and mobile networks have posed various challenges in the field of performance modelling. These challenges require effective performance evaluation tools, techniques and methodologies to design new protocols and robust solutions before a global and wide-scale integrated broadband infrastructure of convergent multi-service networks can be established towards the next generation of network with efficient support of multimedia applications. As a result, performance modelling and evaluation has gained increasing importance.

The purpose of this symposium is to provide an international forum for researchers and industry practitioners to present state-of-the-art research on performance modelling and evaluation studies in all aspects of computer and telecommunication networks and to exchange ideas and explore new avenues of collaborations.

FiCloud is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society. The Proceedings of FiCloud 2015 has already been accepted in the IEEE Conference Publication Program.
