** PhD Forum of the **
** 21st IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP) **
Goettingen, Germany, October 7, 2013
The PhD Forum has been a regular event of the IEEE ICNP conference for the
past years. This forum is intended for both doctoral students who are
starting their PhD and those who are towards the end of their dissertation
to discuss their work. In contrast to previous years, the PhD Forum of ICNP
2013 is designed as a full day event including keynote talks, short oral
presentations by PhD students, and group discussions. Based on the quality
of presentations, a selected number of students will be invited to give a
pitch talk at the main conference. This forum will provide an opportunity
to get advice, to train presentation skills, and to network.
The topics of interest coincide with ICNP 2013. They include, but are not
All aspects of network protocol research including design, specification,
verification, implementation, measurement, testing, and analysis.
* Domain-specific solutions including protocols for network security,
routing, user privacy, and network management.
* Application-layer protocols for peer-to-peer systems, social networks,
and emerging systems.
* Contributions to ICN architectures, specific algorithms and protocols,
as well as results from implementations and experimentations.
