The authors are encouraged to submit via EDAS full papers describing original, previously unpublished research results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development in the area of reliable networks design and modeling. All submitted papers will be reviewed. The total length of a paper should not exceed 7 pages formatted according to the two-column template.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.



Extended versions of top papers of analytic/optimization orientation will be considered for publication in a special issue of Networks journal (Wiley). Best Paper Award will be given.
