The ICNL (Intelligent Computation and Network Laboratory) focuses on the fusion of new networking technology, distributed computation, and intelligence to enable the future information infrastructure technologies (e.g., B5G, 6G, Future Networks, Big data-driven technologies, network security, trust, privacy) to support future services (IoT, CPS, Society 5.0, etc.).

In this field of research, information and communication network infrastructure and its environment are evolving rapidly as information computation continues to move from the cloud to the network edge due to the dramatic advances and fusion of communication technology, distributed processing, and artificial intelligence. In our laboratory, we are actively responding to the needs of the future society, efficiently embedding intelligence and distributed processing into the network, and conducting comprehensive researches targeting revolutionary/evolutionary networking systems.
