CALL FOR PAPERS: CoNEXT Student Workshop

Following the success of previous years, the main conference will be preceded with a one-day Student Workshop. The ACM CoNEXT 2012 Student Workshop aims at providing a platform for graduate students in the area of computer networks to present their ongoing research efforts. The venue also represents a unique opportunity for students to network with other young researchers as well as more experienced ones, receive constructive feedback, guidance, tips, and learn about cutting-edge research problems being tackled by the community. Past workshops have featured keynote lectures and panels from distinguished researchers in the networking community.

We encourage submissions from graduate students about research at an early stage and for more advanced dissertation-level research. The submission should describe the research in 2 pages and indicate whether this is early-stage or dissertation research for potential presentation at the ACM CoNEXT 2012 Student Workshop. Research that addresses non-standard topics and controversial problems and approaches is of particular interest.

The scope of the workshop is broad and covers all aspects of networking research. Example topics include (but not limited to) :

Selected abstracts will be published in the ACM CoNEXT 2012 proceedings and authors will be required to present their work through a poster session. Students may also be given an opportunity to give an “elevator pitch” to publicize their posters at the main conference.

Formatting Guidelines

Please follow the ACM CoNEXT 2012 Formatting Guidelines EXCEPT for the following two differences:

Abstracts can be submitted at: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/CONEXT2012/

Student Travel Grants

A number of grants will be available to students to attend the main conference as well as to participate in the ACM CoNEXT 2012 Student Workshop. In making Student Travel Grant decisions, students with accepted posters at the ACM CoNext 2012 Student Workshop will be given higher priority. More details will be available soon.

Best Poster Award
