Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The Eleventh ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-XI) will
bring together researchers in computer networks and systems to engage
in a lively debate on the theory and practice of networking. HotNets
will provide a venue for debating broad future research agendas in
networking and for presenting innovative ideas that have the potential
to significantly influence the community.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit short position
papers. We are particularly interested in papers that foster
discussion of broad research agendas for the networking community as a
whole. We strongly encourage papers that identify fundamental open
questions, or offer a constructive critique of the state of networking

We also encourage submissions of early-stage work describing enticing
but unproven ideas. Such papers could, for example, advocate a new
approach, re-frame or debunk existing work, report unexpected early
results from a deployment, or propose new evaluation methodologies.
Once fully developed and evaluated, the work may be relevant to
conferences such as SIGCOMM, SOSP, OSDI, SenSys, NSDI, MobiCom,

HotNets takes a broad view of networking research. This view includes
new ideas relating to (but not limited to) data center networks, home
and enterprise networks, ISP networks, wide area networks, sensor and
personal area networks, wireless and acoustic networks, peer-to-peer
networks, network architecture, disruption-tolerant networks, and
networking in support of cloud computing. It encompasses all aspects
of such networks, including (but not limited to) provisioning and
resource management, economics and evolution, robustness and security,
topology, mobility, interactions with applications, usability of
underlying networking technologies, energy, performance, 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), thereby 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 in the following priority order:

* 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, with preference given
to students subject to availability of travel grants, 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 13, 2012 (11:59 PM EDT)
Paper submission: July 20, 2012 (11:59 PM EDT)
Notification of decision: September 14, 2012
Camera-ready submission: October 5, 2012
Workshop dates: October 29-30, 2012
