Call For Papers

ACM HotNets-IX
October 20-21, 2010
Monterey, CA

The Ninth ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-IX) will
bring together people with interest in computer networks to engage in
a lively debate on the theory and practice of networking. Continuing
the HotNets tradition, the workshop will provide a venue for
presenting and discussing innovative ideas that have the potential to
significantly influence the community. The goal is to promote
community-wide discussion of those ideas.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit short position
papers describing such ideas. A paper could, for example, expose a new
problem, advocate a new approach, re-frame or debunk existing work,
report unexpected results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation
methodologies. We especially encourage submissions of early-stage work
and enticing but unproven ideas. Once fully developed and evaluated,
the work may be relevant to conferences such as SIGCOMM, SOSP, SenSys,
NSDI, MobiCom, PODC, or Infocom.

HotNets takes a broad view of networking research. This view includes
new ideas relating to (but not limited to) home and enterprise
networks, ISP networks, sensor and personal area networks, wireless
and acoustic networks, data center networks, peer-to-peer networks,
network architecture, and disruption-tolerant networks. It encompasses
all aspects of such networks, including (but not limited to) resource
management, economics and evolution, robustness and security,
mobility, interactions with applications, energy, measurement and
diagnosis, and hardware.

Position papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of
spawning insightful discussion at the workshop, and technical
merit. Accepted papers will be posted online prior to the workshop and
a workshop summary will be published in ACM SIGCOMM's Computer
Communication Review (CCR), widely disseminating the ideas discussed
at the workshop.

Workshop Participation
HotNets is an invitation-only workshop. To ensure an interactive
atmosphere, attendance will be limited to around 60
people. Invitations will be extended per the following priorities:

* one author per accepted paper, any speakers invited by the
Program Committee, and the Program and Steering Committees,
* co-authors of accepted and submitted papers, preferring students
as available travel support allows, and
* event-sponsor representatives and additional authors of
submitted papers at the discretion of the Program Committee.

Submission Instructions
Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages (10 point font, 1 inch
margins). All submissions must be blind: submissions must not indicate
the names or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Only electronic
submissions in PDF will be accepted. Submissions must be written in
English, render without error using standard tools (e.g., Acrobat
Reader), and print on US-Letter sized paper. Papers must contain novel
ideas and must differ significantly in content from previously
published papers and papers under simultaneous submission.

Important Dates
Abstract registration: July 2, 2010 (11:59pm EDT)
