New York City, NY

Call for Papers

The Eighth ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-VIII) will
bring together people with interest in computer networks to engage in
a lively debate on theory and practice of networking. Continuing the
HotNets tradition, the workshop will provide a venue for presenting
and discussing innovative ideas that have the potential to
significantly influence the community. The goal is to promote
community-wide discussions of those ideas.

We invite researchers as well as practitioners to submit a short
position paper describing such an idea. The paper could, for example,
expose a new problem, advocate a new approach, re-frame or debunk
existing work, report unexpected results from a deployment, or propose
new evaluation methodologies. We especially encourage submissions of
early-stage work and enticing but unproven ideas. Once fully developed
and evaluated, the work may be relevant to conferences such as
SIGCOMM, SOSP, SenSys, MobiCom, PODC, or Infocom.

HotNets takes a broad view of networking research. This view
encompasses all kinds of modern day computer networks, including (but
not limited to) home and enterprise networks, ISP networks, sensor and
personal area networks, wireless and acoustic networks, data center
networks, peer-to-peer networks, and disruption-tolerant networks. It
also encompasses all aspects of such networks, including (but not
limited to) resource management, economics and evolution, robustness
and security, mobility, interactions with applications, energy,
measurement and diagnosis, and hardware.

Position papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of
spawning insightful discussion at the workshop, and technical
merit. Accepted papers will be posted online prior to the workshop and
a workshop summary will be published in ACM SIGCOMM's Computer
Communication Review (CCR), widely disseminating the ideas discussed
at the workshop.

Workshop Participation

HotNets is an invitation-only workshop. To ensure an interactive
atmosphere, attendance will be limited to around 60
people. Invitations will be extended per the following priorities:
* the Program and Steering Committees, one author per paper, and
any speakers invited by the Program Committee
* co-authors of accepted and submitted papers, preferring students
as available travel support allows
* event-sponsor representatives and additional authors of
submitted papers at the discretion of the Program Committee

Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages (10 point font, 1 inch
margins). All submissions must be blind: submissions must not indicate
the names or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Only
electronic submissions in PDF will be accepted. Submissions must be
written in English, render without error using standard tools (e.g.,
Acrobat Reader), and print on US-Letter sized paper. HotNets-VIII
reviews will follow standard academic practice, although some rejected
papers may not receive full-length reviews.

Information on how to submit papers is available at
