NETYS 2014 : The International Conference on NETworked sYStems
Call For Papers
NETYS aims to bring together researchers and engineers from both the theory
and practice of networked systems. These systems are viewed in their general
sense including multi-core architectures, middleware environments, storage
clusters, as well as social, peer-to-peer, sensor, wireless and mobile
NETYS will provide a forum to report on best practices and novel algorithms,
results and techniques on networked systems. Original contributions as well
as experience papers on the principles, design, implementation, modeling,
analysis, and application of networked systems are solicited. Specific
concepts common to different forms of such systems are most welcome.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Multi-core architectures and multithreaded applications
- Distributed databases, embedded and operating systems
- Mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, sensor and social networks
- Cloud system and services, virtualization
- Middleware environments and data centers
- Concurrent and distributed algorithms
- Web-based and service-oriented architectures
- Event-based systems
- Security and privacy
- Self-stabilizing, self-organizing, and autonomic systems
- Overlay and peer-to-peer infrastructures
PAPERS SUBMISSIONS & PUBLICATION
NETYS is soliciting two forms of papers: full and short papers. Both
in LNCS form. Full papers are allowed a maximum of 15 pages, whereas
short papers are allowed a maximum of 5 pages, both in the submission
and in the proceedings. A full paper submission might be accepted as
such, as a short paper or a poster. A short paper may be accepted as
such or as a poster. Posters will be presented at the conference to
reflect work in progress and will not lead to a publication in the
proceedings. Authors are given the option to accept or not the type
in which their paper is selected for acceptance.
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series will publish the
proceedings of the conference (www.springer.com/lncs). It is required
that each accepted paper be presented at the conference by one of
The Computing Journal will consider extended versions of selected
NETYS papers in a special issue (www.springer.com/computer/journal/607)
Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper.
A paper is eligible for the best student paper award if at least
one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of submission.
This should be indicated in the submission.
WORKSHOPS and TUTORIALS
Workshops and tutorials will be held in conjunction with NETYS with
the aim of allowing researchers and practitioners to explore topics
and/or emerging research areas in depth. Please contact the program
chairs with a brief description of proposals by January 1, 2014.
The origin of NETYS dates back to the International Spring School on
Distributed Systems organized under the name "METIS". After the success
of the first two editions of METIS'2008 in Rabat and METIS'2009 in
Marrakech, both in French, the last four editions, METIS-CTDS'2010
in Fez, METIS-CTDS'2011 in Marrakesh, METIS'2012 in Tangier, and NETYS
in Marrakesh were in English. Along the different editions of METIS/NETYS,
different topics related to distributed systems have been addressed,
from the "Principles of Distributed Systems" and "How to Secure
Distributed Systems" to "Social Networks". All involved a prestigious
list of speakers.
