Welcome to CNBuB 2016
The 5th International Workshop on Community Networks and Bottom-up-Broadband(CNBuB 2016) will be held in August 22-24, 2016 in Vienna, Austria, co-located with the 4th FiCloud 2016.
Community networking, together with the Bottom-up-Broadband initiative, is an emerging model for the Future Internet across Europe and beyond where communities of citizens build, operate and own open IP-based networks and services, a key infrastructure for individual and collective digital participation.
The CNBuB 2016 workshop aims at serving as a meeting point for researchers and practitioners, both from academia and community networks, to discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research, exchange ideas and share experiences. The workshop will address theoretical and practical challenges of community networks and bottom-up-broadband, including insights from other disciplines that contribute to the socio-technical-economic understanding of the community network operation and growth.
To support the growth of community networking and bottom-up-broadband in society, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art in design, operation, and evolution of community networks. Towards this objective, the research community has the opportunity to contribute with more sustainable, adaptive, scalable, integrated, autonomic solutions.
All accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings by the IEEE, and will be accessible via IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
