(1) TECHNICAL PAPERS: Authors must submit their papers using EDAS

( on or before May 15, 2015.

All papers will be blind-reviewed for technical content and scope by a

technical program committee. Accepted and presented papers will be published

in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as

other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

The page limits are SIX (6) pages for the long paper track and THREE pages for

the short paper track. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, font size 10

or greater and compliant with other IEEE SARNOFF manuscript guidelines.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other

publication. Authors of accepted papers must sign an IEEE copyright release form

and also present their paper at the conference to be included in IEEE Xplore.

(2) TUTORIALS: Proposals are solicited from domain experts to cover current topics

directly relevant to the conference such as (but not limited to): Cloud and Data Center

Networks, IPTV, Video-on-Demand, Smartphone Networked Apps, Software Defined

Networking (SDN), Information Centric Networking, Wireless Networks, Optical Networks, etc.

Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of a chosen topic with the option of describing a

particular piece of work in detail and a meaningful summary of open issues in the topic.

Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to SARNOFF 2015 attendees.

Each tutorial will be for 3.5 hours with a half-hour break. Tutorial instructors must

make a commitment to prepare the tutorial materials (e.g., slides) reflecting high quality

standards. All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program.

Each tutorial proposal should have: (i) A 1-page abstract that includes: Title of the tutorial,

Name and affiliation and a short biography of the instructor(s), Description of the tutorial scope,

Intended audience; and (ii) A description at most 2 pages long that includes: Main topics

(preferably with some description) to be covered during the tutorial; if relevant, a description

of real-world systems, experiences and/or case studies, details of the new knowledge/perspectives

gained by the audience attending the tutorial.

Tutorial proposals should be directly EMAILED to the Tutorial Co-Chair, Aleksandar Kolarov

(, by May 15, 2015.

(3) PANELS: Proposals are solicited from domain experts to cover current topics directly relevant to

the conference such as (but not limited to): vertical networking applications, ecosystems for enterprise,

datacenter and mobile networks, etc. Panel proposals should contain the Panel Title, Scope, Lead Panelist
