ANCS 2021 : ACM/IEEE Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems


Conference Series : Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems
When Dec 13, 2021 - Dec 15, 2021
Where Online
Submission Deadline Sep 29, 2021
Notification Due Nov 15, 2021
Final Version Due Nov 30, 2021

Call For Papers

ANCS is the premier forum for presenting and discussing original research that explores the relationship between the algorithms and architectures of data communication networks and the hardware and software elements from which these networks are built. ANCS focuses on architectures for networking and communication in the broad sense, including novel architectures, architectural support for advanced communication, algorithms and protocols for advanced architectures, software and applications for next-generation networking architectures, co-design of computer and network systems, and methodology and benchmarking for evaluating advanced communication architectures. ANCS 2021 will be held online.

Call for Papers

The conference seeks an emphasis on the applicability and feasibility of approach, and will prioritize implementation and measurement-led submissions. Authors are invited to include artifacts and data sets as part of their submission, and those would be looked favourably by the committee. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Disaggregated computing
Heterogeneous architectures
Hardware offloading and accelerators
Domain-specific languages
Operating systems and virtualization
Switch/router/middlebox/NIC designs
SDN/NFV systems
In-network computing
Host networking
Network, compute, memory and storage convergence
Hardware/software co-design
Reconfigurable and programmable hardware
Security, measurement, benchmark and management
Emerging applications and use cases
