The network of the future is envisioned as an effective, intelligent,
adaptive, active and high performance Internet that can enable
applications ranging from smart cities to tsunami monitoring. The network
of the future will be a network of billions or trillions of entities
(devices, machines, things, vehicles) communicating seamlessly with one
another and is rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry,
and government.

The International Conference on Future Networks Systems and Security aims
to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia,
practitioners from industry, standardization bodies, and government to
meet and exchange ideas on recent research and future directions for the
evolution of the future Internet. The technical discussion will be focused
on the technology, communications, systems and security aspects of
relevance to the network of the future. The technical topics of interest
to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

-future Internet architecture and technologies

for publication elsewhere* (copyright problems fall entirely under
responsibility of the authors). Each paper will be reviewed by at least
three experts in the relevant field ensuring the publication of only top
quality contributions. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an
undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors
should register and present orally the paper in the conference. Failure to
do so shall lead to exclusion of the paper from the proceedings.

FNSS 2016 proceedings will be published by Springer as part of the
Communications in Computer and Information Science series ( ). Extended versions of selected
FNSS2016 papers will be invited for a journal special issue.

Authors should prepare their manuscripts carefully in adherence to Springer
requirements using the template available at:

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers (10 to 15 pages in
