                                     on the
            Design of Reliable Communication Networks
                                 DRCN 2023

           April 17-20, 2023 – Vilanova I la Geltrú, Spain



Technically co-sponsored by IEEE ComSoc

*** Paper submission deadline (EXTENDED): December 15, 2022 ***

The International Conference  on the Design  of Reliable Communication  Networks
(DRCN) has been held  for more than 20 years,  to address topics related  to the
reliability and availability of communication networks,  and has grown to become
the meeting place where researchers from both industry and academia get together
to advance  the state-of-the-art in the field.  The DRCN conferences have always
been a multidisciplinary forum bringing together  scientists from diverse fields
including engineering of survivable equipment  and network technologies, network
management and monitoring, and data analytics for fault diagnosis.
The 19th edition of the conference  will be held in Vilanova i la Geltrú, Spain,
from April 17-20, 2023.  We are pleased to invite you to contribute in DRCN 2023
and we encourage you submitting novel and high-quality work to the conference.

*** Submission guidelines ***

Authors are invited  to submit high-quality technical papers  for presentation at
the conference and publication in the DRCN 2023 Proceedings, describing original,
unpublished research results, not currently under review by another conference or
journal,  addressing forefront  research and development  in the area of reliable
Papers should be in English and should follow the standard IEEE conference style.

Papers should be prepared using the IEEE 2-column conference style, and should be
between 5 and 8 pages long, including tables, figures and references.
Papers exceeding page limits,  multiple submissions,  and self-plagiarized papers
will be rejected without further review. All other papers will sustain a thorough
single-blind review process.
Authors must submit  their paper electronically  through EDAS using the following

For specific details about submission format and procedure, please check:

All accepted and presented papers  will be included in DRCN 2023 proceedings.  At
least,  one author is required to register at the full rate,  to present accepted
papers at the conference and for the paper to appear in DRCN 2023 proceedings.

Authors of highly-scored papers will be invited  to submit an extended version to
IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management.

Should you have any question regarding the submission  of your manuscript to DRCN
2023, please contact eva.rodriguez at upc.edu<mailto:eva.rodriguez at upc.edu>
