The 2017 Fifth International Conference on Internet Applications, Protocols and Services (NETAPPS2017) is a no-frills conference in the area of Internet communications and networking. The main goal of this conference is to serve as an affordable platform to promote greater engagement of network researchers from around the globe, notably from the ASEAN and the Asia Pacific region, in the Internet research activities principally on those related to the work of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).

This conference will motivate greater participation in the technical aspects of Internet technology research and development, specifically in writing RFCs or Internet Drafts, as well as writing high-quality, top-rated technical journal articles on Internet technologies from among Internet researchers in the Asia Pacific region.

This biennial conference is hosted by the Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) and is co-organized with the UUM InterNetWorks Research Laboratory, and held in collaboration with the Internet Society (ISOC) Asia Pacific Chapters and the Malaysian Research and Education Networks (MYREN) InterNetWorks Working Group. The first four editions of NETAPPS conferences were successfully organized in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2015 respectively. The fifth edition of the conference will be held in Solo, Indonesia on 10-11 October 2017.
