Call for Papers

PDF version

Papers delivered at UNet 2017 will be published and indexed by Springer Verlag as a part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series. They will also be submitted to SCOPUS, ISI, DBLP and other leading indexing services. Papers of particular merit will be recommended for a possible special issue in international journals (discussions are underway with several international journals for publishing the accepted papers). A PDF version of the call for papers can be found here.
