This event is jointly hosted by Middlesex University (through our Event Champion Dr. Glenford Mapp) and the EPSRC CommNet2 network.

CommNet2 is an EPSRC funded network that aims to bring together the UK academic and industrial community engaged in ICT research in order to identify, discuss and address the major ICT challenges of the future.

These challenges necessitate a cross-disciplinary approach to research. Hence, the network will bring together academics from the electrical engineering, electronics, communications, networking, mathematics and computer science disciplines. However, the network is accessible to anyone interested in contributing to research and innovation in ICT, including both early career researchers and ICT professionals as well as established academics and those working within industry.

Building on the EPSRC ICT Theme Priorities, CommNet2 will deliver a three year programme that includes networking and training events; international research-horizon scanning; and best practice challenge workshops and conferences. Specifically, the network will create a forum to enable coordinated discussions leading to the formulation of future research bids and world-leading publications to promote internationally leading research activities.
