The Track on Hot Topics in Networking will bring together researchers in information and communication technologies (ICT) and computer networks arena to engage in a lively debate on the practice and theory of networking. Furthermore, this track will provide a venue for discussing innovative ideas and debating future research agendas in the wide range of future computer networking topics. In addition to mature submission, we also encourage submissions of early-stage work on novel ideas with preliminary results, that may not be submitted to the other tracks that mostly focus on full fledged work. In addition, controversial and non-traditional papers that advocate new technologies, application areas, and research directions are also welcomed in this track. The submitted papers will be reviewed and evaluated based on their originality, technical merit, and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas.
