WREN 2009

An ACM SIGCOMM 2009 workshop

WREN 2009 — Workshop: Research on Enterprise Networking

The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to WREN 2009, co-located with ACM SIGCOMM 2009 in Barcelona, Spain.

Call for Papers

Enterprise networks (in large corporations, universities, government entities, etc.) use much of the same technology as the Internet, but otherwise differ in important and interesting ways. However, most researchers have focussed on public networks such as the Internet. The WREN workshop will focus on research challenges and results specific to enterprise and data-center networks.

We solicit original, unpublished research papers that set out important problems, present relevant measurements or measurement methodologies, or describe novel system designs for enterprise and data center networks.


Examples of interesting topics (note that these are examples, and are not meant to preclude submissions on other relevant topics):

Other relevant topics are certainly welcome; please contact the Program Chair if you have questions about the relevance of your topic.

Submission Instructions

Submissions must be no greater than 8 pages, following the same format as SIGCOMM 2009 conference submissions. Papers violating these format rules run the risk of being rejected without further review; no extensions will be granted for reformatting. Papers must be submitted in PDF, with page numbers, and legible in black & white. Reviews are single-blind; author names and affiliations should appear on the submission.

Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and technical quality.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop. Submissions must be original work, not under simultaneous or overlapping review at any other workshop, conference, or journal. (Please contact the PC chair to discuss potential cases of very brief overlaps.)

All submissions will be treated confidentially, and accepted papers will not appear prior to the workshop date, except with explicit prior consent by the authors.

Papers can be submitted through the submission site at https://wren2009.hpl.hp.com/wren2009/.

This site may be experiencing IP routing problems. If you cannot use the site, please send email to the PC chair.
