[Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP]

Dear colleagues and friends,

You are cordially invited to submit your novel research work to the IEEE 
Globecom 2019, a flagship conference of IEEE ComSoc that will take place 
this year in Hawaii, USA.
Please find the details below and accept our apologies if you receive 
multiple copies of this message through various sources.

Call for Papers
IEEE Globecom 2019 - Next Generation Networking and Internet (NGNI) 
Big Island, Hawaii, USA, December 9-13, 2019

Scope and Motivation
We are assisting to a big rise of new architectures and technologies 
enabling next generation networking and internet. As a consequence, new 
challenges and research issues are also arising. Emerging topics of 
notable importance include software defined networking (SDN), network 
function virtualization (NFV), information-centric networking (ICN), 
cloud and fog computing, multi-access edge computing (MEC), network 
heterogeneity, scalability, protocols, services and applications, 
security, manageability, dependability, quality of experience for added 
services, and performance predictability. Furthermore, with 5G gaining 
momentum, many challenging issues are also affecting next-generation 
broadband wireless networks, such as network densification, spectrum 
expansion, many techniques to enhance spectrum efficiency, 
self-organization, energy efficiency operations, mobile cloud computing, 
mobility management, and indoor localization.
The Next Generation Networking and Internet (NGNI) Symposium at IEEE 
Globecom 2019 aims to consolidate and disseminate the latest 
developments and advances in these emerging focus areas. This symposium 
invites participation from academic, industry, and government 
researchers working in the broad area of next-generation networking and 
Internet, including methodologies, techniques, technologies, theories, 
services, architectures, and protocols. The NGNI Symposium will provide 
a forum for researchers to get together, to present a latest snapshot of 
the cutting-edge research, and to foster technical debate on future 
directions in this exciting area.
