ACM CoNEXT 2008 Student Workshop

PDF version of the call for papers

The 4th International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT 2008), to be held in Madrid, will have the primary goal of promoting stimulating exchanges between various international research communities. Following in the footsteps of past editions of ACM CoNEXT Student Workshop, ACM CoNEXT 2008 Student Workshop will provide a platform for graduate students in the areas of computer networks and data communication to publicize their ongoing research work through posters. This will be also an opportunity for graduate students to obtain feedback and learn what problems are being tackled by fellow students. It will also be an opportunity for students to network with other students and senior researchers.


We invite submissions of 1-2 page abstracts from graduate students worldwide describing their ongoing research work for potential presentation at the ACM CoNEXT 2008 Student Workshop. Research work that addresses non-standard or controversial problems and approaches are of particular interest, even if they are in an early stage. Submissions via EDAS.
