The Fourteenth ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks (HotNets-2015) will bring together researchers in computer networks and systems to engage in a lively debate on the theory and practice of networking. HotNets will provide a venue for debating broad future research agendas in networking and for presenting innovative ideas that have the potential to significantly influence the community.


The workshop will be held in the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel, located on UPenn's campus, on November 16 and 17, 2015. (More about the venue, hotel, and getting there.)
