Call For Papers

The 11th edition of the annual International Workshop on Network and Systems Support for Games (NetGames) will be held in Venice, Italy, on November 22-23 2012. As in previous years, NetGames brings together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to present the latest research results and challenges of today’s networked games, and to understand their requirements and possibilities in order to enable the next generation of networked games. NetGames will also have industry keynote and panel discussions with leading researchers and practitioners from gaming companies. Submissions are solicited on all aspects of networked games, including (but not limited to):

- Scalability, cloud support, client-server, and P2P system architectures
- Efficient message distribution and network protocol design
- Latency issues and lag compensation techniques
- Network traffic modeling, measurement, and impact on network infrastructure
- System benchmarking, performance evaluation, and provisioning
- Operating system enhancements, service platforms, and middleware
- Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOG)
- Multiplayer usability and user behavior studies
- Personal communications and conferencing in games
- Mobile games, resource-constrained systems, and context-based adaptation
- Networks of sensors and actuators, networked haptics
- Quality of service, quality of experience, and content adaptation
- Dynamic and user-generated content authoring and management
- Content creation: non-linear storytelling, object capturing, algorithmic creation
- Security, authentication, accounting and digital rights management
- Cheat detection and prevention
- Social networking in multiplayer games

Full/Short Paper Submission Deadline: September 2, 2012
Demo Paper Submission Deadline: September 30, 2012
Notification of Decisions: October 14, 2012
Registration/Final Paper Due: October 28, 2012

Contributions can be submitted as full papers, posters, or demos:
Full paper 6 pages
Short paper 2 pages
Demo 3 pages

Submissions are in PDF and should follow the IEEE conference proceedings format. Full papers will be presented in the single track session, short papers will be presented as posters, while demos require actual demonstration of a working proof-of-concept or prototype.

Reviews will be single-blind, authors must include their names and affiliations on the first page. Papers will be judged on their relevance, technical content and correctness, and the clarity of presentation of the research. Papers should not be under review at another venue nor previously published elsewhere.

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. Submission of a paper for review will be considered your agreement that at least one author will register and attend the workshop if your paper is accepted.
