ANCS 2014 : Symposium on Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems
Conference Series : Architectures for Networking and Communications Systems
Call For Papers
ANCS is a systems-oriented research conference, presenting original work 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. This includes both experimental and theoretical analysis. To recognize and foster the increasing importance of research into the co-design of computer and network systems, the conference also places an emphasis on systems issues arising from the interaction of computer and network architectures.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
System design for future network architectures
Router and switch architectures
High-speed networking algorithms and mechanisms
Software Defined Networking systems
Network Functions Virtualization architectures
Virtualized infrastructure architectures and systems
Architectures for data centers
Converged router, server, and storage platforms
Host-network interface issues
Techniques and systems for large-scale data analysis
Wireless network hardware and related software, including software radios
Mesh, ad hoc and sensor network hardware and related software
Content-centric network architectures, platforms, and mechanisms
Network security architectures and security anchor/enhancement devices
Network measurement techniques, architectures, and devices
Scalable programming and application frameworks
High-performance and high-function network processing platforms
Power- and size-optimized computer and communications platforms
Hardware accelerators and offload engines
Single-chip networking elements, e.g., multicore, NPU, FPGA, TCAM, custom ASIC
Network-on-Chip architectures and applications
Memory architectures and technologies for packet, state and table storage.
