NETYS 2015 : THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NETWORKED SYSTEMS
Call For Papers
Aim and Scope:
NETYS aims to bring together researchers and engineers from both the theory and practice of distributed and networked systems. The scope of the conference covers all aspects related to the design and the development of these systems, including, but not restricted to, multi-core architectures, concurrent and distributed algorithms, parallel/concurrent/distributed programming, distributed databases, cloud systems, networks, security, formal verification, etc.
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, verification, and application of networked systems are solicited. Specific concepts common to different forms of such systems are most welcome.
NETYS is coupled with the METIS Spring School which aims at introducing young researchers to the domain of distributed and networked systems through tutorials on basics, as well as lectures on new research topics and current trends in this domain.
Submissions should contain original research and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. NETYS welcomes papers on theory, case studies and comparisons with existing experimental research, tools, as well as combinations of new theory with experimental evaluation.
NETYS is soliciting two forms of papers: full and short papers. Full papers are allowed a maximum of 15 pages in Springer’s LNCS format, whereas short papers are allowed a maximum of 5 pages (in the same format), 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 its authors.
The Computing Journal could publish extended versions of selected papers (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.
All submissions should follow the LNCS template. Submitted papers must be written in English. Full papers are allowed a maximum of 15 pages in LNCS format, whereas short papers are allowed a maximum of 5 pages, both in the submission and in the proceedings. Papers exceeding these limits may be rejected without review.
Paper submission will be handled by EasyChair, so please make sure that you have an active account. The papers must be submitted electronically at:
