Welcome to DRCN 2018!

It is our great pleasure to announce the 14th International Conference on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN 2018) will be held on 19 February 2018 in Paris, France. The conference will be co-located with ICIN 2018 at Orange Gardens near Paris, the brand new eco-friendly campus of Orange for Innovations, Technologies and Marketing.

The International Conference on Design of Reliable Communication Networks (DRCN) is a forum for presenting excellent results and new challenges facing the field of the reliability and availability of communication networks and services. It brings together experts from industry, governments and academia, experienced in engineering, design and research.

The conference has been held since 1998, in the beginning biannually, and more recently annually. Over the past twenty years, DRCN has developed into a well established conference covering topics from equipment and technology for survivability to network management and public policy; through theory and techniques for the design, management and operation of survivable and robust networks.

Looking forward to seeing you at DRCN in Paris in February 2018.
