Two main phenomena are driving the way the network of the future is being re-engineered: the continuous trend towards a network-based form of computing, like Cloud or Fog Computing, and the trend towards a mobile Internet for People and Things where network dependability is critical. Immersive VR gaming, autonomous driving or augmented reality systems are examples of applications extremely demanding in terms of latency, resilience and bandwidth which are not viable without a cost-effective reliable network designed to re-allocate capacity in real time wherever it is needed. This network evolution from a static to a smart elastic network is envisioned to affect end systems, Fog/Cloud designs, and all the underlying network spanning radio/optical access, metro and transport segments. The purpose of this workshop is to gather international experts to discuss the latest research advances and trends in smart elastic networks design enabling a hyper-connected hyper-computing-based world. Topics of relevance include but are not limited to:


Two types of contributions are welcome:
