Call for Participation

The NetPL workshop provides a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from the fields of programming languages, formal methods, and networking.

Recent technological trends, such as Software-Defined Networking, Network Functions Virtualization and reconfigurable networking hardware, have created an opportunity for researchers in these traditionally separate communities to collaborate, applying their diverse perspectives towards the development of novel networking applications. It is important to clarify that the scope of this workshop goes strictly beyond SDN. We aim to enable language specialists to better understand opportunities in networking, and networking specialists to better understand opportunities enabled by specially-designed languages.

The program will include invited talks from experts in the field, with an emphasis on encouraging engaging technical discussions amongst the participants.

This is the second NetPL workshop, after last year's workshop at ECOOP. All talks in the previous edition of the workshop are on YouTube.

NetPL Student Grants

The NetPL 2016 workshop has limited support for funding students to attend the workshop. Interested students can apply for a grant complement through the SIGCOMM travel grants application.
