Call For Papers

*** New extended deadline of the CNERT INFOCOM workshop below (deadline extended to January 21th 2018) ***

The CNERT '18 workshop invites submissions about testbed-based research and experiments. Submissions are due on January 21, 2018. Please see the CFP below.

5th International Workshop on Computer and Networking Experimental Research Using Testbeds (CNERT)

Held in conjunction with the IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications (INFOCOM), 15-19 April 2018 // Honolulu, HI // USA

* Submissions due: January 21, 2018
* Acceptance notification: February 7, 2018
* Camera-ready paper submission: February 28, 2018

Experimentation has played a very important role in advancing research in computing. Although simulation is an important tool for studying and analyzing the behavior of new protocols and algorithms, it is essential that new research ideas be validated on real systems and testbeds. This workshop will bring together researchers and technical experts to share experiences and advance the state of the art in experimental research in areas such as networking, distributed systems, and cloud computing. It aims to inspire researchers to use testbeds in novel and interesting ways as a means to validate research ideas. Of particular interest are experiments on publicly available testbeds such as GENI, Emulab, CloudLab, DeterLab, ORBIT, Fed4FIRE testbeds, PlanetLab, and so on.

We solicit papers with experimental results from areas including, but not limited to:

* Distributed systems
* Cloud computing and big data
* Computer and network security
* Wired and wireless network experimentation (including sensor networks, WiMAX and LTE communications and services, and optical networks)
* Software defined networking (SDN)
* Future Internet architectures
* Network economics and pricing

Experiments may focus on challenges including, but not limited to:

* Instrumentation and measurement
* Large-scale experiments
* Evaluation and analysis of experiment data
* Creation and sharing of datasets of broad interest to the community
* Experiment design and deployment
* Design for repeatability and reproducibility
* Tools and services for testbed users and operators
* Experiments on federated testbeds
* Testbed implementation and deployment

The workshop will have a strong experimental component. Paper presentations are encouraged to include live demonstrations, and papers are encouraged to include references to detailed experiment setups that will enable others to extend the work. Each paper submission should include a section indicating (1) if a live demonstration during the workshop is feasible and (2) if so, how the results will be demonstrated. Due to the experimental nature of the submissions, CNERT
strongly encourages authors to make all of their experiment artifacts, including obtained data traces, publicly available to the research community.

In addition to a best paper award, CNERT will have a separate award for the best demo that exemplifies the principles of experiment repeatability and reproducibility on real systems with running code.
