Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

MSPN 2018 is the 4th edition of the successful International Conference on Mobile, Secure and Programmable Networking. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences and works-in-process on all aspects of computer and information technology. Each year, MSPN attendees appreciate and benefit from multidisciplinary exchanges on Mobile, Secure and Programmable Networking. For more information about the conference, please use this link: http://www.adda-association.org/mspn/.

Selected papers that presented at the conference are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computers after the conference. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Computers and collected together in this Special Issue website.
