Welcome to DRCN 2014

We would like to invite you to contribute to and participate in DRCN 2014, which will be held in the glorious city centre of Gent, Belgium.

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 biennially since 1998, and recently has become an annual event. Over the past fifteen 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 survivable and robust networks and application design. The 10th DRCN will be held in Gent from March 31 – April 3th, 2014. The DRCN 2014 conference offers a rich program, including keynote talks, regular papers and panels, together with two free state-of-the-art tutorials. We need your contribution and participation to make it a successful event.

Looking forward to seeing you at DRCN in Gent!
