The 4th Annual New England Network and Systems Day — NENS’17 — will be held on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 at the Boston University Photonics Center. The first three editions were a great success, drawing over 100 students, faculty, researchers, and engineers from over 20 institutions — local industry, universities, and research labs — to discuss recent advances in networking and systems.
