Conference Series : Conference on Emerging Network Experiment and Technology
Call For Papers
CoNEXT 2019 Call for Papers
The CoNEXT 2019 conference seeks papers presenting significant and novel research results on emerging computer networks and its applications. We especially encourage submissions that present novel experimentation, creative use of networking technologies, and new insights made possible using analysis. We invite submissions on a wide range of Networking topics. The list of topics includes (in alphabetical order):
Big Data platforms with applications to network management, security, measurements
Content distribution and caching, e.g., CDN, peer-to-peer, overlays
Design, analysis, and evaluation of network architectures
Experience and lessons learned by deploying large-scale networked systems
Internet measurement and modeling
Internet economics and policy
Innovative uses of network data beyond communication
Networking aspects of datacenters and cloud computing
Networking aspects of operating systems and virtualization architectures
Network aspects of Web, Video, and Virtual Reality applications
Network control and management, including SDN, NFV and network programmability
Network, transport, and application-layer protocols
Networking aspects of ubiquitous computing, including Internet-of-Things and Smart Cities
Networking aspects of online social networks
Reliability and availability of networks, protocols, and applications
Routing and traffic engineering
Security and privacy aspects of network applications and protocols
Topics at the intersection of energy-efficient computing and networking
Wireless networking in licensed and unlicensed spectrum
We are open to other contributions that stretch networking research outside of these topics, present new emerging computing trends, or potentially involve unfamiliar techniques. We ask authors to bear in mind that the main factor of interest for their work will be the implications of their results in networking. Potential authors who are unsure of the scope are encouraged to contact the PC chairs before submission.
CoNEXT welcomes submission of both long and short papers (2-column, 10pt ACM format). All the submissions should be double-blind and will be peer-reviewed. Per the anonymity guidelines, you must remove any author names.
Long papers are the more traditional form to present technical work and should be no more than 12 pages (up to two additional pages for appendices and unlimited pages for references). Short papers are the preferred vehicle for contributions whose novelty and impact show the same technical excellence, but whose description fits within 6 pages (one additional page for appendices and unlimited pages for references). Short papers will be reviewed with a more open mind towards the scope of evaluation or breadth of topics compared to long papers. Note that position papers, critiques of networking research, and ideas that are not yet fully complete or evaluated are a better fit for the HotNets workshop. We recommend that authors check both call for papers before submitting.
We welcome experience submissions that clearly articulate lessons learned, as well as submissions that refute prior published results. We value submissions more highly if they are accompanied by clearly defined artifacts not previously available, including traces, original data, source code, or tools developed as part of the submitted work.
CoNEXT accords great importance to research ethics. Specifically, authors must attest that their work complies with all applicable ethical standards of their home institution(s), including, but not limited to privacy policies and policies on experiments involving humans. Submitting research for approval by one’s institution’s ethics review body is necessary, but not sufficient. The PC will have its own discussion of the ethics of that work whenever it has concerns about the ethics of a submission. Authors agree to be available at any time during the review process to rapidly respond to queries from the PC chairs regarding ethical standards.
