The 17th Mathematics of Networks meeting (MoN17) will take place at Sheffield University on Thursday 20th September 2018. The theme for this meeting is Energy Efficiency in Communications Networks. MoN17 is sponsored by commnet2 and is held in conjunction with Next-GWiN 2018 the 5th International Workshop on Next Generation Green Wireless Networks, Sheffield University 17th-18th September 2018.

About Mathematics of Networks

MoN is an informal series of meetings that has now been running since 2003. The series encourages interdisciplinary communication in networking research. It is an excellent venue for presenting new ideas or gaining a wider audience for established research. Presentations on any aspect of networking are welcomed, particularly if the techniques or conclusions are applicable in other networking disciplines. Attendance is free of cost.
