Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The Workshop on ns-3 (WNS3) is a one and one-half day workshop to be held on June 17-18, 2020, hosted by NIST. The objective of the workshop is to gather ns-3 users and developers, and other people generally interested in network performance evaluation and related tools, to discuss advances in the ns-3 simulator and its models.

As in past years, we will apply again to publish the accepted papers in the ACM ICPS series.

WNS3 invites authors to submit original high quality papers presenting different aspects of developing and using ns-3. In such papers, reproducibility and methodology will be a key reviewing criteria, as explained below. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

new models, devices, protocols and applications for ns-3
using ns-3 in modern networking research
comparison with other network simulators and emulators
speed and scalability issues for ns-3
multiprocessor and distributed simulation with ns-3, including use of GPUs
validation of ns-3 models
credibility and reproducibility issues for ns-3 simulations
user experience issues of ns-3
frameworks for the definition and automation of ns-3 simulations
post-processing, visualisation and statistical analysis tools for ns-3
models ported from other simulators to ns-3
using real code for simulation with ns-3 and using ns-3 code in network applications
integration of ns-3 with testbeds, emulators, and other simulators or tools
using ns-3 API from programming languages other than C++ or Python
porting ns-3 to unsupported platforms
network emulation with ns-3
using ns-3 in education and teaching

We also solicit novel papers with a focus on an industrial application of ns-3 (use of ns-3 within industry). Papers in this category must address these questions:

What specific R&D questions did you or do you want to answer by simulation?
Why and how did you choose ns-3 as the appropriate tool for your application?
What surprises did you find, in correctness/behavior? in implementation? in learning curve?
What are the remaining barriers to addressing fully your R&D questions?
What general capabilities would have made your work easier/faster?

Papers must be written in English and must not exceed 8 pages. Every paper will be peer-reviewed. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and present the work at the workshop.
Submission instructions

Authors should submit papers through EasyChair (link to be provided) in PDF format, complying with ACM “sigconf” Proceedings format. Submitted papers must not have been submitted for review or published (partially or completely) elsewhere.
Acceptance Criteria

Papers will be accepted based on the relevance, novelty, and impact of the contribution, as well as the quality of writing and presentation.

Authors presenting new ns-3 models, frameworks, integration setups, etc. are encouraged to include all traditional parts of a scientific paper: introduction, motivation, related work, assumptions, verification and validation, conclusions and references. As a general rule, papers that only document source code will be rejected.

Authors presenting networking research using ns-3 are encouraged to follow best simulation practices and focus particularly on the credibility and reproducibility of simulation results. We strongly encourage authors of all papers, demonstrations, and posters to include links to relevant source code and instructions on how to use it. This will make contributions more useful for the ns-3 community. For papers presenting new ns-3 models, a link to the respective code review issue will be a plus.

Please do not hesitate to contact the workshop chairs if you are uncertain whether your submission falls within the scope of the workshop.
Copyright Policy

Authors will have their paper published in the ACM Digital Library, which will require copyright transfer to ACM under their normal terms and conditions. In the spirit of open source, we encourage authors of published papers to exercise their right to publish author-prepared versions on their respective home page, or on a publicly accessible server of their employer. Upon request, we will provide links from the WNS3 program on the ns-3 web site to the author-prepared version.
Plagiarism Policy

We follow the ACM standards and conduct regarding plagiarism.
Reviewing Process Conflict of Interest Policy

Reviewers will follow the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking Conflict-of-Interest Guidelines. Authors are requested to identify potential conflicts-of-interest among the workshop’s technical program committee.
Demonstrations and Posters

In addition to the regular paper track, we will organize an exhibition-style demonstration and poster session, not to be published on the conference proceedings. The aim is to foster interactive discussions on work-in-progress, new problem statements, ideas for future development related to ns-3, and display innovative prototypes.

A Call for Posters, Demos, and Works-In-Progress page will be posted at a later date. Accepted poster and demo abstracts will be published on the ns-3 web site. At least one author of each accepted demo/poster must register and present the work at the conference.

One Best Paper will be selected by the TPC chairs and will be announced at the workshop.

Registration information will be posted at a later date.
Other Events

We are planning additional events during this week:

Training on ns-3 will be offered on June 15-16; more details forthcoming.
The annual ns-3 Consortium meeting and developer meetings will be held on June 18 following WNS3; more details forthcoming.
Friday June 19 is still being organized, but will likely focus on ns-3 software development or model review.

More information on these will be announced at a future date.
