Call for Posters

The 11th N2Women workshop aims to foster professional networking among women in computer networking and related research fields in which women are traditionally underrepresented. The workshop welcomes women, but also men who share the same research interests and face the same career hurdles. The program of the workshop will include keynotes and discussions on careers in networking, but also technical sessions, where in particular junior researchers are welcome to present their research as poster presentations.

Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of networking and communications. All researchers in the networking and communications fields are welcome to submit their work for presentation at this workshop.

Posters will not be published and can therefore be under submission to other conferences or workshops. Authors of accepted posters will be required to present their work as part of a lightning presentation session. Presenting a poster is a great opportunity, especially for students and junior researchers, to extend the visibility of their work and to obtain interest

Workshop participation is free of charge. One author per accepted N2women poster is offered a free registration to SIGCOMM'21 conference (including workshops).

The best poster will be awarded a Best Poster Award and runners-up will receive an honorable mention.

Poster Submission

Each submission should be formatted as an extended abstract, describing the research to be presented in the poster. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 2 printed pages including all figures and references. Authors must follow the standard ACM two-column conference format with 10-pt font size. The extended abstract must include the names, affiliations and email addresses of all authors and should be submitted as a single PDF file.
