Student Workshop



ACM CoNEXT '09 — Student Workshop

Call for Papers in PDF format


The 5th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking EXperiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT), to be held in Rome, Italy, will continue as a forum for fostering scientific and technological exchanges between various international research communities in networking. Following the success of previous years, the main conference will be preceded with a one day Student Workshop. The ACM CoNEXT 2009 Student Workshop aims at providing the opportunity for graduate students in the areas of computer networks and data communication to divulge their ongoing research efforts, even if at an early stage. The venue also represents a unique opportunity for students to network with other young researchers as well as more experienced ones, receiving constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learning about cutting-edge research problems being tackled by the student community.

We invite submissions of abstracts (max. 2 pages long) from graduate students describing ongoing research work for potential presentation at the ACM CoNEXT 2009 Student Workshop. Research that addresses non-standard topics and controversial problems and approaches is of particular interest. Submission of work in an early stage is particularly encouraged.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to)

Selected abstracts will be published in the ACM CoNEXT 2009 proceedings and authors will be required to present their work through a poster session.


Submitted papers must follow the ACM CoNEXT 2009 Formatting Guidelines ( EXCEPT for the following two differences:

Please submit via:

After having submitted their abstracts, all PhD students will be asked to comment 1 - 2 submitted abstracts. This will allow the students to see the ongoing research of the others before the workshop to facilitate discussions and potential cooperations.

Posters for accepted abstracts should have the following size: DIN A0 (841 x 1189 mm; 33.1 x 46.8 inches). ACM CoNEXT 2009 will provide boards and easels for prposters to the conference.
