Call for Papers

The 5th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT), to be held in Roma, will continue his approach to foster scientific and technological exchanges between various international research communities in Networking. The main conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop, and will be a major forum for presentations and discussions of novel networking technologies that will shape the future of Internetworking. To improve interaction among participants, the conference is single-track. It will feature a high-quality technical program with significant opportunities for individual and small-group cooperation, from both technical and social viewpoints. ACM CoNEXT aims to encourage open discussions on technology alternatives and to be a forum accommodating multiple viewpoints, and is committed to a fair, timely, and thorough review process providing authors of submitted papers with sound and detailed feedback.

ACM CoNEXT 2009 welcomes submissions based on implementation and experimentation, as well as simulation and analytical approaches. We solicit papers on emerging networking experiments, measurements, paradigms, with particular emphasis on creative, out-of-the-box thinking. Papers reporting on the deployment and performance of services or exploring network functionality aimed at better supporting new services are also appreciated. Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited to the following:

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal. Conformance to the 12 pages, 10pts ACM SIGCOMM format will be strictly enforced. Electronic proceedings will be published by ACM, and the best papers forwarded to the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking for possible fast-track publication.
