The IEEE BlackSeaCom series of conferences are held in the countries surrounding the Black Sea. The goal of the IEEE BlackSeaCom is to bring together visionaries in academia, research labs and industry from all over the world to the shores of the Black Sea. Here they will address many of the outstanding grand challenges that exist in the areas of communications and networking while having an opportunity to explore this exciting and dynamic region that has a rich history.
Following the first three editions of the conference in Batumi, Georgia in 2013, in Chisinau, Moldova in 2014 (originally scheduled for Odessa, Ukraine), in Constanta, Romania, in 2015, and the next edition of the conference will take place on 6-9 June 2016 in Varna, Bulgaria - a beautiful Black Sea resort.
We seek original, completed and unpublished technical papers not currently under review by any other journal, magazine or conference. Besides the regular technical papers, the conference welcomes the submission of poster papers which present work in progress, with preliminary results, tutorials and demos.
