Call For Papers

Netdev 1.1 is a community-driven conference geared towards Linux netheads. Linux kernel networking and user space utilization of the interfaces to the Linux kernel networking subsystem are the focus. If you are using Linux as a boot system for proprietary networking, then this conference _may not be for you_.

Current topics include:

Performance analysis and improvement.
Networking hardware and offload.
Traffic control.
Different networking layers (L2/3, etc.).
Internet of things.
Additional topics can be suggested.
We expect about 2-3 parallel tracks both during tutorials and main talks.

Session submissions
We encourage submission of paper and tutorial proposals, though we *highly discourage* submission of recycled talks. Your proposals will be evaluated by the technical committee in first place, that will provide prompt feedback to you. If your proposal is approved, you will be requested to submit your Camera-ready paper. Unlike other conferences, accepted proposals will be regularly announced on our website.

Please stay within the relevant topic focus and tie to FOSS Linux networking to make it easier for the technical committee to provide quick feedback. In order to give a talk you must be registered. If your proposal is accepted you will not be charged a conference fee or your conference fee will be refunded to you when your talk gets accepted. We will be posting more updates on how to submit in the near future.
